Do you all buy the photos they take of your kids at school? The ones they take at Tyler's school, at least, aren't the best quality in the world. Still, it seems there's something traditional about getting each year's photo.

My girls aren't in school yet, but I think I will still buy them. They actually do year photos at daycare and I will buy them again this year. They aren't great, but it's cute to see them in there school setting. I won't buy a lot, just a couple for the scrapbooks, not to give to anyone else.
I always buy just one for myself. I don't go out and buy the whole package. I don't think my pics are great quality yet, and I do like traditional photos every now and then. I used to not buy them b/c she didn't like strangers, so they were NEVER good. Now, she's just too cute to not buy them!

I don't any more. I stopped buying them the year I got my first DSLR. I take a posed photo of them around their birthday, that's my yearly photo of them. They do want keychains with their photo like the kind that's marketed with the school photos. So I plan on ordering them each one from a photo I've taken instead.
I do buy the class photo though.

I would always buy them at preschool. But I was SO disappointed w/ the school pictures that I don't ever buy them. Like Gwen, I buy the class picture. That's purely for scrapbook purposes. I take Loli's picture ... well ... all the time, but we take an 'official' school picture right around his birthday which is usually pretty close to when they do the school pictures.
We order wallet prints to send to the grandparents, etc. Everyone seems just as happy (if not more so) than w/ the school pictures.
this year was our first year. my daughter isn't in school yet but she's in daycare and they just got done taking pictures last week. I ordered the small package they offered. 3-4 different sizes of her posed picture and then a group picture. I still have yet to see the quality of it. But it's just for us so it's ok. I should probably start doing my own thing every year like Gwen does. That's a good idea but Mikael will not sit still for even once second. lol
My oldest just started kinder this year, so "school pics" are new to me and since I take so many pics of the girls all the time I only bought an 8x10. I will do that every year and put them all together in a scrapbook to put out at their graduation open houses.

Lol! My daughter refuses to sit for anyone other than me. I bought her first fall and spring pictures (before she was 1) but haven't even had the opportunity to buy any others. I *might* think about buying them if they're cute. But other than that, no.

My son has been very hard to photograph lately- so wiggly- but his school pictures turned out too cute to turn down (in my siggy pic). It was 30 bucks for the whole package... I'll admit I cheated and scanned the photo in and didn't drop the 50 bucks for the digital CD of ONE image. I won't be reprinting the photo.
Jenn, that IS such an adorable pic! I thought you took it!
