Prices and Choices for Family/kid Photos

We wanted to take some family photos including separate pics of each of our two kids, them together and then all of us. We wanted to get them on CD too if it's not too expensive. Just wanted advice on the best choices for a 3&1/2 old very active boy and a sweet 2 month old little girl. I was thinking a studio would be the best way to get our son to behave, but we do really prefer natural shots outside, I'm just worried about the baby. Any suggestions and ideas on pricing? I'd love to have easter pics with bunnies or chicks but it's not a must. Thanks!

I highly recommend Christine Pace of Huntjax Photography. He's great with children and takes beautiful family photos. She also likes doing outdoor shots in natural settings. Her website is www.huntjax.com follow the links directly to her family photos. She's very easy to work with and will give you your photos on disc.

I would love to take pictures of your family. I am still building my portfolio so there is no session fee, you only pay for the prints you would like. I have a small indoor studio (and a 3 year old ACTIVE son as well, I have tons of toys to keep him busy while we take portraits of the baby). Please let me know if you are interested.

I agree Portrait Innovations are great. I got the CD and about 14 sheets for $85.00. I loved my kids summer pics from last year..

Hi, A.!

This was my question at Christmas, and I got 10 responses. You can go to my profile (J. S) and see all the answers I got. We ended up going to Portrait Innovations, but you may want to go to one of the "private" studios I got answers for, too.

We also have a little boy who is almost 3 and we live in Carrollton, so if you'd like to get together for a play date sometime, just let me know!

Congratulations on your baby girl!

For our family pics this year we used a lady out of Grand Prairie, TX. She charged me only $100 for two hours of her time and the disc with all the images!!
I loved our pictures I had to reprint them for family and friends like 1000 times..lol

She was great and I hope you use her. Affordable and adorable, I think that should be her slogan.

Her email is [email protected]____.com

Hey A.,
Not sure if you found anyone or not, but I would use B4 Photography. She does awsome work and she has 3 kids so she know how they can be. She charges one price and you get a CD with all your photos on it and then you can have what you want printed when you want it. She will take breaks while shooting to help make the pics come out beeter with the kids. She can do pics at your house, her studio or somewhere outside. Check her out.......

I have taken my son the last couple times that we had portraits made to Portrait Innovations in Plano at Park and the Tollway (http://www.portraitinnovations.com/index.html ). They did a great job for us and you can get a CD with all the pictures as part of most of their picture packages. They take a lot of pictures- I think we had like 70 to choose from- that was the hardest part because they were all so good! They also had two people in our photo session- one to take the pictures and one to entertain my son and keep him smiling. I was so impressed. Hope that helps!

Kandice Ray photography is excellent. She shoots the pictures outside and often uses TWU or the Grapevine Botanical Gardens. She edits all the pictures and then puts them all on a CD. You can have them printed where you would like (mpix.com is GREAT and very, very reasonable...$1.99 for an 8X10).

Unfortunately, I did NOT have a good experience at portrait innovations. It was for my daughter's first pictures and they shot them WAY too close up. They did make it right, but there's only so much that can be done once the picture has been taken.
