Just so you know Kim - if they are at all mobile be ready to chase and chase and chase! Sara was walking at her year pictures and it was a marathon to get the 13 shots we did get. They just ask you to help pose them and then JUMP out of the way quickly so they can snap a picture. Crawlers aren't that much easier but it is a little bit better since they don't move quite as quickly. I am not going professional again until she is 2 hopefully i will be better!

I can't believe the boys are going to be 1 already! I find it nearly impossible to get a good picture of all 3 kids. It's not for lack of skill or effort on PP's part. It's just hard to keep them all still, looking at the camera, etc. I'm sure it will get easier as it gets older, but still tough. The great thing about PP is that you don't have to pay anything if you don't like any of the pictures. I'm sure it's a PITA to go back and get them redone, but you're under no obligation. If it's at all possible, take DH with you. That way you have two of you to herd the boys.

Despite it being so hard to get a good picture, they've managed to get some surprisingly good ones of my kids. There have been some that I was sure wouldn't come out that did and others that I thought would be cute that didn't come out. Even if you can't get one with all the boys they have some cute frames where you can put a few pictures in the same frame, so you can get good individual pictures and put them all together and it would probably come out great.

No advice just a hearty Good Luck!


I really want to get the boys 6mo pics done and have procrastinated so far.
