My family has had mixed success with The Picture People. My biggest gripe is that their backgrounds are not cleaned/replaced as often as they should be. If you look closely at virtually all of the pictures they've taken for us, you can see dirt specks and blotches all over the background--particularly on the floor. For this reason, I try to load the kids up with props (to distract the eye and cover up some of the dirt) and to focus on upper body shots. The background was so filthy in one of my daughter's pictures, and the picture was so good (and had been so hard to get), that I paid something like $25 to have her outline cut out, encased in lucite, and mounted on a little base.

Some of the photographers are very good; others could care less about basic things like centering the kids in the shot or making sure that everybody's looking in the same direction.

The good thing about The Picture People (and the reason we keep going back) is that they're reasonably priced and they'll keep re-taking pictures until you're satisfied. Discount coupons are readily available.

PROS: They retake pictures until you're satisfied; coupons available.
CONS: Dirty backgrounds; hit or miss in terms of quality of picture.
