We haven't historically done pictures when school offers. Partly because we are there part-time & days always work out oddly. And partly because I figured they'd not cooperate & pictures would be nerdy. But I decided I wanted an actual Preschool picture... so we did them this year. As it worked out, the kids were there on Logan & Livi's picture days, but not Hayden's. But they worked with us & just did all our kids on the same day. Which was great because they offer sibling pictures too. I let them within reason pick their own clothes, so they aren't coordinated, or matchy... its just them in their own true form (except for the fact that I made the boys wear jeans which they would never do by choice.)
I wasn't going to do the sibling pictures, because I figured I'd get one nerdy shot of the 3 of them half torn up from school sitting aimlessly in a row. But decided, heck, its free... why not just do it. So glad I did! Did I mention I got a sample pack of an 8x10, some 4x6s & wallets... for free!?
First school picture day.... check!
