One Year Portrait

Minnesota ladies, and anyone else.....any ideas, tips, etc.., for us when we do K's one year portraits? I really want to use Flash! Photography (in the malls) - from what I've seen, they can do some really cool things........
I know they are a little more spendy, but I wanted something more "unique", you know? I want to be able to do a big portrait for over our bed and also do some family pictures of the three of us, although I have to admit, I am sad the puppies won't be in the picture. Yes, they probably could come with us, but it would be a disaster trying to reign them in. LOL.

Anyways, any other suggestions for photographers that can do unique things with their pictures?

Yes, it may be a bit early to think about, but our girl is less than two months away from her first birthday! *gasp*

We used Flash! for Sophia's Chrismas pics last year and didn't like them at all! They are WAY overpriced for what you get, and we felt really rushed. We spent more than $200 and had very little to show for it.

This is who we used for Sophia's 1-year pics:

I have a link on my blog (late Oct/early Nov) to all of Sophia's photos. I think they turned out great! And he is VERY reasonably priced. (Under $100 for the sitting at his studio and a CD of all the proofs.)

He will even come to your house if you want, then you could include the pups :-)

I used Target for Graycen's only because we ran out of time and I didn't want to spend TONS of money. I was VERY pleased with all of the pictures we got there. They weren't anywhere near the type of photos Sara got of Sophia, but I loved them! I will also say, we have used Kiddie Kandids and I HATED the pictures. The quality of those was the same as the quality of pics we got from Walmart! We used the one in Roseville. I am thinking Roxy used them (different location) as well as Sara and I think they liked them.

I don't have any good suggestions, except to suggest talking to Kerry... she always does such amazing pics of her little ones and seems to have a really artistic eye. I hope to hire her someday to advise me in all matters.
By the way, I tagged you! See my blog for the rules.

What's this "Flash!" of which you speak? We are so out of the loop up here in Duluth. lol Really my biggest tip is to go with low expectations. That sounds WAY worse that I mean it, but if you go expecting to get or needing to get certain shots, well, the wee one may have other plans. Best to just put her in something cute and let the photographer do their thing.

I hated Kiddie Kandis. And I have heard Flash! is way overpriced. I love Sears in Maplewood!!
