Cheesy Family Photos...

Olan Mills came to our church a few weeks ago to take pictures for the church directory. While Zayde cooperated really well, my hair did not. It was 8:30p.m., and the hair had had it. They took several shots and poses to create a package especially for us for the low price of $999.95. (You should have seen the look of shock on Zack's face. We have never laughed so hard talking about it on the way home.) Of course, we explained that spending a thousand dollars on pictures was just not possible. So, they quickly lowered the price to $650.95. Oh, that's a much better deal, right!? An hour later, we finally left spending $40.00 on proofs and an 8x10...


The chosen photo for our church directory.



Our purchased 8x10- I just love the light at the end of the tunnel look.



Zayde just cheesed it up in every picture! He was so happy for it to be after 8:00p.m.





Zayde and Daddy - so sweet!



Zayde and Mommy :)



As my sister, Christa says: Can we say, "Yack!"

Oh yes...we didn't like ours either. But we didn't buy not one of them, yep those prices were really high. Guess you aren't going with one from the church as your Christmas card picture since we have gotten to see them, Ha!!!! Thats funny how awake Zayde is at that time of night, wow..

Evan and I were engaged when FBC Farmington did directory pictures last. Ours turned out okay, but Evan was like "There is NO WAY we are going to have a picture of us hanging in our house with a blue background!!!" It's crazy those pictures cost so much and they never turn out that great!!!

They say a picture is worth a thousand WORDS, not dollars!!!

Hey Amy! I just recently started blogging and was so excited to find you on here! I think our little guys are only about 15 days apart. I'm sure we are experiencing many of the same things right now. I look forward to talking to you and getting to learn more about baby Zayde!

Oh, those picts turned our really cute. And how neat that Zayde was smiling in them all! He is just a happy little dude. Mom and I enjoyed keeping him in the nursery the other day. He is precious!

Sorry Amy! My maiden name is Martin. I went to high school with you and Zack. That is so funny that you said that about the red hair because I hadn't even realized how red it looked in that picture. It is actually like a light brown color but every once in awhile if I see it right in the sun, I think it has red tints (not sure where that comes from). I was reading one of your blogs earlier about giving Zayde solid baby food and I thought it was hilarious because I tried giving those same banana puffs to Tayson and he made the most awful faces and spit it back out. Then I decided I would taste one and they really aren't that great!

Mom told me the story about the cost of the pictures & Zack's reaction. I was cracking up!! That must have been hilarious! Great pictures!

Mandy said...

Definately email me, I would love to catch up. My email address is hogcountrymandy@sbcglobal.net

Mandy said...

People tell me that a lot...it is kind of a hard email address. Most people put hogcounty instead of hogcountry...You can give me your email address if you want and I'll shoot you an email.
