I gave in and bought

My kid's school pictures. The background was nice, but the quality wasn't as good. I bought them so he can remember his preschool days Smile

Anyone else gave in?

I did too! DD has been in daycare/preschool for 3.5 years now and they take pics 2x a year, they usually come back awful. This was the first time it was decent. Eye contact, smile, decent background, so I figured I might as well!

I might someday end up giving in. If the prices aren't too ridiculous anyway. Just so that my kid won't feel left out Smile

When DS is in school, I'll definitely be buying the cheesy school pics! It's all part of the fun Smile

Last year I thought it would be weird to, but now that she's in school I'm looking forward to getting a picture that doesn't involve me chasing her all over and then her giving me the grumpy look!

i bought them too, just (2) 5x7s and some exchange ones that she handed out to her friends. how can you NOT buy the school picture? i just think they look so cute 'at school'... they definitely have a different look to them then when you take the picture, I think.

Bought them here too. My pics aren't as good as yours though. Wink I too want her to remember her "school" days.

I always bought at preschool. They had some really good people doing the work.

I bought kinder pics, but since then, I have only gotten the class photo each year (DS is in 2nd grade now). the person/company they have doing the photos is TERRIBLE! Snaps w/ the onboard flash w/ DS on my dining room table are better, complete w/ the orange cast everything gets in my dining room.

I do however, break down and buy the "year book" from Loli's school. So I do get a copy of the official school photo. It's better in b&w anyway. Blum 3
