If you deal with a picture company that only allows one order, do you buy the OP and their family some pics?

We have had 2 sets of pics for ODSD so far (cheer and school) and I have made sure to order enough for BM and her family (a 5x7 and a few wallets, along with a 5x7 of the cheer team pic).

Do you feel a responsibility to order such pics for the OP?

I order enough for X, his family, my mom, etc etc.

DH's ex always offers. I don't think she would buy extra just in case, but she does call DH and ask if he wants her to order some for him.

DH has in the past always taken BM's order/money and added it to our's.

Honestly, I don't like paying $20 a sheet for school pictures, so I'll go to Walmart and get photos done. Then I make sure to buy enough for my family plus BD's parents, sister, and grandma. If I didn't do that his family would never get pictures, and I don't think that's right (my own opinion). That way DS still gets his picture in the yearbook and everyone gets cute pictures, and I only have to pay $25 or $30 instead of $50 or $60.

We order one package that has enough for our family and BM's and split the cost.

DH and BM each order their own package on one order form.

I'd call him and see if he wanted any and let him know how much his would be. If he said he didn't want any twice that would be it and I wouldn't ask anymore. I felt no responsibility for ever buying him school pictures. I asked he said no and that was it.

We almost never bought them and when we did it never occured to me to involve BD. He never once asked about them either. When we did formal shots at a studio I didn't buy him those either. He's free to take the kid and get pics done too. I see no overwhelming sentimental value in having the specific shots done at school.
