This past weekend, we took our daughter to the Picture People for "1st Birthday" shots. My husband doesn't like photo studios because he insists that I take much better pictures with my trusty little digital camera - and, of course, he always points out the very true fact that the photos are WAY over-priced.
But I can't resist the oh-so-cute backdrops and props. This time, I got a postcard in the mail with a little girl standing in a box with a big "1" on it - and I knew I wanted that same shot. So we went and the pictures turned out very cute.
But, I have to ask you...
1. Where do you go to get baby portraits taken? the Picture People? JCPenney? Sears? Target? A professional photographer? You and your digital camera?
2. If you take your pics at home, what do you do to ensure that your pictures turn out just right? Photography tips, please!
