Last year in Preschool, we got quite the sticker shock when it came to school pictures. I was completely taken aback at the cost they wanted for a single shot. However, the pictures were so stinkin’ adorable and it was his first year in “school” we caved and bought the smallest package.
This year, I was determined not to go through that again. In fact, when school picture time came, I almost hoped Andrew’s pictures weren’t that great, so there would be no temptation for me to buy them. Well, thanks to a goofy grin, my wish came true.
Now, just to be up front, his Kindergarten picture packages weren’t nearly the cost of his Preschool picture packages. But still more than I would have like to spend on picture that was just so-so. Plus, even though AJ is not in school, I wanted a “school” picture for him as well.
Well, I had been putting off getting their pictures, when finally Andrew’s tooth was so wiggly that it was going to come out any minute. I really wanted to get his picture taken before that happened, so I made an appt one Sunday, ran out got him a haircut, and took the boys to Target. (I know, toothless pictures are adorable, and I agree… )
Anyway, my goal was simply a replacement school picture for Andrew and one for AJ. That’s it. What I got was a complete photo shoot. The pictures turned out great…. I’m biased, I realize, but I also know a dud picture when I see it too.
