    The only professional photos we've had done have been Pixis.

    They're cheap compared to a lot of places but they still aren't that cheep. The good thing is you can pick and choose what you want with no obligation to take any of them and you get a free one that's quite big.

    I don't think they are cheap for the quaility of work they do. I don't like their pictures.

    Personally i would find a independant photographer, that has a passion for it and will take unique photos.

    I dont like them either, I think they are overpriced for what you get and half the time the photographer isnt that interested.

    Try looking for an independent child photographer in your area. They tend to be more interested and professional, it is their lifeline after all, they will spend more time with your child and you will get better prints.

    hey hun i know a great photographer who is a family friend in penrith who runs them from home and she quite often has specials for certain times like mother day,father day, xmas etc and with mothers day coming up shell probz have one pm me if u would like her deets i can also pm u some of her work she did for me so you can see how great she is

    oh and had to add pixi is a total rip off never buy from them and after you see this ladies work youll never go back to them again when i got my dd photgraphed by this lady at 12 days old the package i got off her pixi photo wanted $1200 for pretty much the same package and i paid under $200 for my package although her prices may have gone up a bit now due to her buisness being more established they are still very very cheap
