Various members of the extended family have been griping that we do not have any 'professional' portraits of myself, Wee Man (13 months old) and Not Quite Hubby. I guess our candid shots are just not enough. Whatever.
So, all in the name of saving a buck (or 30), I ran across a Q in the inserts a few weeks ago for a Spring Package at Sears for 7.99. It's a pretty basic package but the price was right, so I informed Not Quite Hubby that we were now booked for a sitting this morning at 10am.
Did I mention I HATE having my pictures taken?
We get there and of course we do the family portraits first. OMG they were HORRID! I looked like a pale gelatinous blob...with red hair and about 4 chins (seriously!) and NQH had a bright red face. Wee Man of course was his usual cute self. Thankfully, they did shots of just Wee Man and we were able to select a pose for our package. As a bonus, we got a coupon code for a free 10x13 wall portrait too which I promptly ordered (of a different pose) when we got home, only paying the shipping costs as I'm having it sent to my house as opposed to the studio. All in all, we got a fairly good deal with the package: 1 8x10, 1 5x7, 2 3 and a half x 5s, 4 wallets and 16 minis plus the 10x13 for less than 15 dollars. It's a good deal if you're willing to stick with one pose and hope you get one you like*lol*
Now I'm gonna go snarf some diet coke as there is just NO WAY I'm THAT effin' fat!!!
