Sweetpee and 2Tiggies your pictures are awesome!!
Not at the BC but my previous post with pics was a 20 minute session 10 days ago Not that the girls in the pink dresses help you deciding if it's right for your boys

Here is the link to our session. I am still on the fence. They aren't as bad as I expected them, but they aren't great. There are definately some I could use. You can definately tell when my 5 year old was done taking pics. That's not their fault. I do NOT think that it's worth the amount of money. We had a 1 hour session with Mike and Pedro September 16th, 2011. The best shots were done in the first 20 mins. I ordered the cd but they forgot to send it. I also just got the email last night at about 10pm. If it asks its Vose Family and 1971 for the log in and password. Have a great day Dis friends.

It won't let me in. It is asking for email and first name

I think longer sessions are a particular challenge with children as they really do lose interest after a while. My problem is that my DD loves the camera and prefers not to have to share the limelight with me

You did the one hour session didn't you? I know that costs a lot more than the 20 minute one we did and I have to admit, I would expect more from an hour session than I do from our basic 20 minute sessions. The advantage with the basic session is that you get the CD the next day. I purposely booked ours halfway through our stay so I could check the photos and if need be, get back to them BEFORE we left if I wasn't happy. Unfortunately with having to wait that long for the sessions you did, it is not an option

Thanks for sharing your pics - I think they came out great. The ones of the girls on the red sofa are very cute!

If it prompts you with a email and name just use your own personal email and name, it doesn't take your info and its not tied to my account.

Yes, the hour was too long for our 5 year old. I also didn't anticipate it being 90+ degrees that day. I think what I am most upset with...and it's my own fault, is I wanted some background of the board walk and things that make you know it's been done at beach club. I should have asked for more specifics but I just assumed the photographer would know some of the coolest spots to shoot. I explained that in the beginning. Oh well, we got some usable shots and will do things differently next time. Thanks for the input and nice compliments guys.

First of all, your pictures are incredible. I guess you, having paid for it, would be more critical than we are but I have to say I am really impressed with all the shots! The only reason I didn't and possible won't book the one hour session is because there are only two of us which means we move quite quickly and are able to get a good number of photos in our 20 minute session.

I must admit, and just remembered this when I read your last post, I did ask for more inside this year. We had the first few taken on the staircase at the GF and then went outside. When the photographer was done, I asked if we could have a couple more done inside and she was quite happy to go back and do these. I think one thing I have learnt from doing 2 sessions now is that it helps to know or at least have an idea of anything specific you want. I purposely just let her carry on with the shoot and put my requests in at the end as I didn't want to lose time back tracking when it was clear that we were set up to spend the rest of the session outside. I guess we live and learn, but again, your photos are stunning and there are definitely some enlargement and framing worthy ones in there. I love the ones of the girls on the couch They are so serene and natural.

I am so torn now....
rjvose, diane and sweetpea-Thank you so much!!! Those pictures are all beautiful, thanks for sharing. You all have lovely families.

After reading much of this thread, I contacted an outside wedding photographer, but now after looking at these photos, I don't know what to do, they're gorgeous. And, we're pretty picky!(we're close friends with 2 of the most highly rated photog's in the nyc area, so we are pretty prejudice about this ) But I have to admit, these pics were better than I thought they'd be. You guys should be proud.

We are at the BC now & my DD17 had her photo shoot pics done yesterday here @ the BC for her senior pics. We chose to do 2 (20 min) mini sessions. Saved $100 & got the CD within an hour after the session. We viewed the pics on our laptop & I can tell u that they came out BEAUTIFUL. She wanted all shots outside & the photographer we got, Alicia, was excellent with her. She got some great shots on the beach, on the ship (slide) capturing the lighthouse in the background, around the flower beds...all really pretty. All in all we got 58 shots....well worth every cent (IMO). When I get home this weekend, I'll try to upload a couple (if I can figure out how...lol).

Yes, my hair was frizzing which I look at the pics and see it but the pictures are so beautiful it just doesn't matter. At all. I'm really impressed because we were all sweating some kinda bad. Every time Dean asked us to get close to each other or **gasp** touch each other is was a moment of "eeeewwww" and giggles. I'd put my hand on the hubby's back and it was soaked. Say it with me: "eeeeeeeewwwwww"....

Anywhoo, here's the link. Username is: Sutton Family. Password is: 1971.

I hope this puts some minds at ease. I really really really do completely love and adore our portraits. So amazing.
Your pictures are beautiful!!! Thank you so much for sharing!
We are doing the 1 hour session in November with the entire family. Fingers crossed that it goes well with 5 adults & 4 kids!!

2 tiggies, Scarlet, and Princess.......

Thanks so much for giving me your honest opinion on our pics. I am truly the worst critic because I HATE having my picture taken. I'm really bad to the point of this was the first session we have ever done as a family. Also your talking to the girl that when we went to Discovery Cove and did the dolphin swim, upon seeing myself in the pics of the water with the dolphin I just hid in the locker room the entire day. It sounds ridiculous but it's truly a flaw that I have . So with that said it's really nice to here that from total strangers that arent just trying to make you feel better. I really appreciate it!

Oh my! Your girls are adorable! You're gorgeous! And hello! Hubba-hubba on that old man ya got there! Beautiful pictures. I thought there were tons of wonderful shots there. Even the ones where your littlest one was doing what us grown-ups generally refer to as "not cooperating", those are just as important to have. Years from now think of the fun you can have with those! They capture a moment in your lives that you can't go back and do again. Love it for all it's flaws.

I totally hear ya, girl! I'm the exact same way. I can look at just about every picture I'm in from our shoot and find something I don't like. It's really hard for me to accept images of myself. I'm just not a naturally photogenic person. Pairing that with my crazy vain side and it's just a recipe for disaster. Over the years I've gotten where I just have fun with the moment whenever someone is taking a pic. If I want a nice smile I try to think of things that make me laugh. Laughter produces the nicest smiles. Then there's always those what-the-heck shots. I try to embrace those, too. Like in our photoshoot towards the end there's a shot where I'm looking off from the camera and have a really irritated expression. Yeah, I call this my "What are you lookin' at?!" shot. Just have fun with it. I look at all those pictures when your little one wasn't loving the camera anymore and think of all the funny captions that can go with them. Great stuff to have! Next time you get pictures done I bet you'll be looking back laughing...and your new shots will be all the better for it!

Sounds like we all have camera lens phobia and unnecessary self criticism That is just all the more reason to buy the CD with digital images .... at least if we get desperate we can (or can get someone able to) Photoshop us gorgeous

It is true what they say: we are always our own worst critics!
