The whole experience was a mess. The photographer was hurried even though we were the only ones in the studio. Of all the nice props we got a crumpled white sheet for a backdrop. When I insisted to get something better for the baby, we got a basket, fake flowers (with no attempts to color-coordinate them), and no beads to keep the baby from chewing on her dress (like the ones they have on their showcase portrait). I ended up entertaining my three kids so that we could get a nice picture. When we received our pictures, even some of the best shots came with cut off tops. We are planning to return them. The whole thing cost us $200 + and took us 2-3 hours in the studio and at the check-out.

Crowded!

That is the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Sears Portrait Studio. The place is always jam packed with kids in the Sunday best waiting to get their pics taken.

The shop is in the Great Northern Mall within Sears but you can get to it without walking through Sears.

You should really make an appointment, otherwise you could be waiting for a long time. Once called, you will get your choice of some backgrounds and props and, of course, they will take many extra expensive photos even if you want an inexpensive package.

You can view the proofs and look at the extra photos and choose what you want on site.

Generally an inexpensive package is advertised. Those are usually the most bland photos. The premium photos are really good and, any parent will want the best. It's very hard to stop from buying extra photos especially with the incredibly well versed salespeople putting deals together and making packages.

If you stick to your guns and get the package that you came in for, you will get a great deal. The photos are usually very sharp and clear and the price is low. If you fall into the trap of buying extras (or key chains and other mementos with photos in hem), expect to see your bill inflate a LOT.

The photographers are friendly and have experience working with fussy kids. Some try way too hard to amuse the kids and end up coming off annoying to them. Some photographers are better than others and you can't know who you will get until you get into the back room (which is just a series of tiny cubicles with several screens for backdrops and an elevated waist high table to sit a child on). Adults can also have their photos taken. This is not strictly for kids.

There is an extra charge if you have more than one person in a photo.

Get all the prices ahead of time and know your budget when you walk in. You will be high pressured to buy more, but you don't have to.

It's a great deal if you can stick to the basic package. It's when you add on pre
