Family Photos with jcpportraits {and April Coupons!}

by Mama Chocolate on April 27, 2012

Tomorrow morning, I am headed out bright and early (on a Saturday *gasp*) to get portraits of the girls at our local jcpportraits studio.

I seriously love the portraits we get from them, and we even have a favorite photographer there that we try to get each time we go. Katie loves her particularly for some reason, and we’ve had her taking our girls’ pictures since Katie was 5 weeks old.

I don’t get in with the girls as often as I’d like, (the studio is over 45 minutes away), but after an awful experience with a different photography studio much closer by, we decided the extra driving was worth it to keep getting portraits we love.


Now through April 30th, jcpportraits is offering a coupon for 6 traditional portrait sheets for $20 and one free sitting fee ($9 value). This is a great deal and I can’t wait to take advantage of it tomorrow when we visit!

When I was pregnant with Victoria, we went there and got some really cute portraits of little Katie and my big pregnant belly. Since then, I’ve seen even more fun ideas from jcpportraits for maternity shots that I’m looking forward to trying out!

I love capturing these kinds of memories through photography. We have a whole wall in our living room that is covered with family photos!

When our Katie and her cousin Ruby were just over a year old, we took them in to get portraits together and I absolutely love the photos we came away with:

Wow. They are so little in these pictures. What happened to these little babies?! Only 2 years later and they’re kids now. *sniff*


It only takes looking through a few of our past portraits to inspire me to get another appointment on the calendar. These months and years fly by too fast, and I already treasure the ones we have from just a few years ago. In a decade or two, these photos will be even more precious.

Don’t miss out on capturing these sweet memories!


“I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of jcpenney Portrait Studio. I was asked to create a Pinterest Board and pin at least five (5) pins. I give jcpenney the right to repin any or all images/original content from this board. I received a promotional item as a thanks for my participation.”

I love professional portraits but we haven’t had a family one taken in about 6 years! It is definitely time to start calling a portrait studio!
