family photo: help me

{insert awesome family photo of us here}

guys- i need your opinions ASAP. i want to get some NICE family photos taken of my little fam before it gets too cold, you know to cherish for the many years down the road, frame it for our house, and maybe make for some nice christmas cards (if i'm not too lazy to send them out). i need some recommendations of who you think would be PERFECT. i'm looking for a great photographer but not too pricey (actually not pricey at all according to steve- but i understand you got to give and take a little bit if you want nice photos). please shout out some photographers you've had and loved, seen others have and loved, someone you've heard excellent things about, great photographer websites you've visited, etc. etc.

Probably too pricey but so worth it. She is a good friend of mine an I think she is super talented. She is doing our family in a couple of weeks. - http://heidilynnphotography.blogspot.com/

Your camera is so good that I bet you could get someone to do some fun stuff for you.

My really really good friend Mary Anne Miner does AMAZING family photos. She's really reasonably priced - plus I'll put in a good word for you, since I love ya so much. Her website is:


If you want I can call her for you and ask about prices. She lives just down the road from Smith's. I highly recommend her, she's an awesome photographer and just the sweetest girl.

My good friend Laura did Layla's photo's and I think she did wonderful. Go to Laurawarephography.com and under her blog, the second newest post is Layla's pics. (No hard feelings if you don't use her) I don't know prices cuz she gifted it to us. But also the lady that did our Wedding pics that was AMAZING is CamiLynn photography. and Kevin often works through a guy at his work that is doing our Temple Sealing photo's, EOphotography.com
good luck!

Also montagecreative.com is a good one that Kevin uses.

If you're looking for something free, Robbie Taylor, my brother-in-law, have you heard of him?? He has really gotten into photography. You could always try him and see how they turn out and if you don't like them, then pay for a professional. Just a thought.

The name makes it sound lame, but she's actually pretty good and I don't think she charges too much cause she's newer in the business. Good luck!
