Baby Pictures

Since I got a free portrait package from the hospital, we took the baby to get his pictures taken last night. This time went much better compared to our family pictures that we had taken last Saturday. The photographer, a lovely lady my age, but missing her front four teeth, was only running 10 minutes behind. Because the baby was well rested, she got some great pics of my wide-eyed 6 week old. The baby really did well and I'm very happy with the photos! I ended up getting more than the free package since I never sent out an announcement card. So family and friends will be getting a Christmas/announcement card instead!

Oh, while we were there, one of the next customers got upset with our photographer. Apparently the costumer was upset with her since she was running a little behind (not an hour and an half like this other studio was-but just 15 minutes behind). I mean, the lady was only working by herself, doing quality work, during the Christmas rush! You know you have to wait a little longer in traffic and in store lines during the holidays, so why would you think that it would be any different with photo studios? In fact, there has never been a time where I've gone to get pictures taken and the photographer was waiting on me...they are always busy! But here was this customers yelling and complaining-she was so rude I almost gave her a piece of my mind...and she wasn't even talking to me!

So much for peace on earth, good will toward men...and photographers! :-)

Sounds like that next customer needed to chill out. You are going to post some of these pictures, right??

My "baby" is going to be 2 on Sunday. Where does the time go?

It's sad to me that at this time of "good will toward men" people are so disrespectful for those in service positions. I go out of my way to be extra pleasant to make up for the jerks.

That was a beautiful portrait! I'm looking forward to having a family porttrait done as well for the baby and the siblings. Your baby is adorable! I'm glad all's well with you :-)

I agree that getting an Xmas portrait and having to wait past your appointment time seems to go with the territory.

Yeah, I probably would have said something. I waited an HOUR last time I went to a studio for pics. Whole thing was a disaster and it was NOT Christmas portrait time yet! People make me crazy during the holidays, they turn the time of year we should be thinking of others into a self-absorbed, miserable experience! Don't I sound like the grinch?

I remember trying to get Christmas pictures when my kids were little. There was always some person who was rude. I really feel for the photographer. Just try to get those tired, irritable kids to smile!

A Christmas portrait is a great idea, especially with your new baby. Hope we see a pic.

I believe that is the reason I haven't gotten portraits done in along.

That was just so adorable. I really am very sorry for not having been dropping by for quite some time. I really have been very busy too with the new grandson that I even had to temporarily bid farewell to blogging. I do blog once in a while now. Congratulations for the new baby. When I'm up and about I'll be visiting you regularly again.

That's so annoying when people get all bent out of shape about stupid things during the holidays. I hope that guy grows out of that phase!
