Sorry, not sure if this is the right forum for this … just getting used to the place
Anyway, we’re getting Megan & family photos done tomorrow at pixifoto in the new Mothercare and i was just wondering how long it usually takes to get them back? I’d love to have them before christmas, is that a bit overly optimistic?
Anybody had them done there yet, what were they like?

i got them done a few times on my DD they are great value and you just want to buy them all so bring loads of money with ya 😆December 7, 2007 at 9:12 am #49832
😆 thanks, i remember us spending a fortune on Aaron’s photos 6 years ago. Great that its a week, wanted to be able to give mum one of them in a newbridge tree ornament for christmas 🙂December 10, 2007 at 9:34 am #50010
Glad ur feeling happier sadmum
The pixifotos are fab but in all honesty I found them quite expensive (maybe its just that I couldn’t leave any behind)
My mum recieved a framed pic of me & my 2 last Christmas & TBH it is the only photo of me that is @ her house but I love it & if she ever takes it down I am gonna steal it back 😆December 19, 2007 at 3:35 pm #50712GismoMember
I picked up my pixie photos on Saturday. Its a beautiful photo. They are quite expensive. Getting more professional photos done after christmas of him but the framed one I got from Pixie is gorgeous.December 19, 2007 at 4:57 pm #50715
How much are these..they look expensive. We do fab pics of dd with our digital camera and fancy them up on the laptop with different colours, tones and lighting etcDecember 20, 2007 at 9:26 am #50728
You get one large pic free (well for the â‚¬10 you pay at the start). Then you can get 1 pose for â‚¬85 which includes a large pic (sorry not sure of sizes), smaller one and four small passport size of that pose. We’ve had an offer of â‚¬225 for all 8 poses, all pictures sizes which i think is great. Haven’t seen them yet mind you but we got them done when A was a baby and they were gorgeous.

No way would pay that for a few snaps… throw a sheet on the bed or the sofa and sit the kids up and bobs you uncle!!!
I love natural snaps not posed ones anyway.December 20, 2007 at 5:01 pm #50789
Lost count of the amount of times I spent 250 + on pixifotos of L in her 1st year I had her photographed at least 4 times & spent 250 each time min (but if my sis, bro, mum wanted pics they gave me money for them. So I made a few quid back)
When R was born I had him photographed once as a tiny baby (with L & without) & again @ about 6 months.
Then both of them once or twice a year since but I don’t buy all the pics now every time just 1 or 2 or else send my mam to collect them & only get the 1 for 10 euroDecember 21, 2007 at 1:49 pm #50847
well i’m afraid i don’t have a computer at home and can’t use work one for photos etc. I don’t mind paying it to be honest, but each to their own. It not 225 for 8 of the same photo by the way, there are some of m on her own, a on his own, m&a, and then the whole family. My mum, h’s mum and family overseas will love them, as will we.December 21, 2007 at 4:05 pm #50860ArtyMumMember
I think Pixi are great. I have always been delighted with the photos we got from them. And I don’t think they are expensive either. I paid way more than that for a ‘professional’ photography session when DS was born and was totally unhappy with the results. Much prefer Pixi. Use them at least once a year.
FYI, if you go toone of the ‘mobile’ Pixi stations in some shopping centres, they are cheaper as they don’t have the same overheads!December 21, 2007 at 4:09 pm #50862
& usually the mobile ones will give out vouchers for the ‘free’ sitting & 10 x 12 pic (fantastic if u have the will power to take ur free 1 & leg it)
