You could also do something like this, if you can get her to hold the picture. If not, then the photographer might figure out a creative way to use it.

If you like the other girl's work then go with her. Studios like Olan Mills are not very good quality. Also like others mentioned bring your own props but good luck trying to find a big number 1. I couldn't find one at Hobby Lobby or Michael's. Just an average size one that didn't look good in the pictures.

if you get the michaels app (or loo online) for a coupon you can probably get a 1 for 10 bucks or so? then paint it to match her theme and have people sign it at her party as a keep sake.



I used a wrapped present that was actually for dd.. Lol her little people doll house actually.



I got her pics 2 wks before so I could print them out to use as party favors (edited them on paint and wrote thank you for coming and put them in a magnet cover slip I found at wal mart)

Eh no. But I still almost think it would be better than Olan Mills because it's outside but the quality isn't great. A lot aren't in focus and the color's off. Maybe you could look around. I'm trying to work my way into the photography business and I'm still doing free sessions till August and I know I'm better than that.

That's how my son is, lol. I am sure the photographer is used to it, a lot of kids are that way.



When we did my youngests newborn pics, my oldest did not want to sit still for pics, so she let him play while she took pics of the baby, us with the baby, and then she would get some of him playing (and when he would look at her), they turned out pretty good.

oh man that sucks, maybe I will just get a "O" 'N" 'E" instead. Yea I have always wanted to do outside pictures, I have always went to the sears studio to get pics done but they are all closed done and it was a pretty penny

I heard some of them are closed down. We used to go to them too before I realized how expensive they are and how they really weren't that good. I prefer the outside look which I know you can't always get but in summer I would def. go with that.

lol alright I will be free just charge the gas to get there :P And I know what you mean, my oldest is turning 6 tomorrow and she's having a friend and family party this year so it's even more expensive. My youngest turned one May 31st, I did some pictures of her, I can show you what that one looked like.
