When I want to take photos of my children, I do it myself. We can go out in a field, by our barn, to the park, by the lake, beach, on the front porch etc. I can use props like pumpkins in the fall or a blooming bush in the spring. There are many possibilities when you think about it.
Then, I can edit my photos using my computer software making black and white photos, sepia or I can use cropping, and other editing features. I think these type of pictures look more natural than the somewhat "cheesy" and fake backgrounds at photo centers. Additionally, I can save money because there is no sitting fee and I don't have to buy the bigger packages to get the pictures I want. I can print what photos I want when I want them.
If I want a family portrait, I can ask a friend/neighbor for help.
