I used to think getting family photos done was a little cheesy and a bit over the top. Well, I also said I'd never put myself on a Christmas card, and I did that last year :-) I've definitely changed my tune. We have two cameras; one a nice one that I insisted we needed ;-) and I NEVER take photos... Lately I've been having the professionals take the photos and am always thrilled to have such quality pictures and memories captured. I plan to continue getting them done every year for a while to document the boys. A great tip to keep costs down is to follow your favorite photographers on facebook and look for deals. Also ask about mini-sessions; most photographers offer shorter (and cheaper) sessions from time to time and truthfully, kids only have a short window of maintaining their interest.
If you're in Maine, we have two favorites, that we love working with. Carly Murray Photography (who took the pic above) is a mom with two little ones, and totally gets how to work with them and capture unique moments... Carly offers birth photography and fresh 48 sessions which I will DEF use if/when we have another. Check out her facebook page; she currently is offering 25% off Fresh 48 sessions. We also love Tandem Photography! They have taken amazing photos of our kids and family and are very artistic and also amazing at capturing moments. You'll see photos from both throughout this site :-)
