The Picture People is located right in the mall, so it is quite convenient. They take appointments, but you can also walk in and they will get you if there is time. One of the nice things about this is that your pictures are ready to take home in about one hour. They use real film, these are not digital pictures. I have been very happy with the quality of the pictures taken of all three of my children. They take a variety of poses, and you can pick which ones you want after they develop them, and you can hold them in your hand. I prefer that to trying to view them on a computer screen. Most of the photographers are pretty good, although I have had a few that didn't seem to like children. Even then though, the pictures turned out great. The last time I was in, we had a fantastic photographer named Chris. He put my daughter at ease and we got so many adorable shots, it was really hard to chose! The backgrounds are mostly solid colors, I think they have one with clouds. They have some cute props. but I don't usually like to use them with my kids, just as a personal preference. There run a lot of coupons for free 8x10 and 10x13. If they don't print the picture in the size you want it, you can just tell them the size you want, and they will print you another one in a few minutes.
