I have taken my daughter to The Picture People several times now for photos. Overall, the pictures have been quite adorable and are ready in an hour. They have many cute props to choose from and lots of bright backdrops to choose from. The photographers have been very kid freindly. A couple of them are not real creative when it comes to the props so you have to make some suggestions yourself, but others are very creative. If you sign up on line, they send you many coupons-usually buy one get one free on a sheet of pictures (about $8-10.00 a piece usually) For new babies, you get a booklet with freebies for the milestone pictures (0-3 months, 4-6 months, 6-9 months, 9-12 months). These coupons usually take care of the sitting fee of $9.95 per person too. They do color, black and white, and sephia prints.
