When was the last time you got a family portrait?

Surprisingly, we haven't taken a family portrait since my daughter was born. I received so many money saving coupons on portraits just after my daughter was born. And, I figured that we'd use one of those. But, we never got around to it. Not sure why. For awhile my spouse was working 13 hour days, seven days a week. And, that was a necessity. But, not so much anymore. And, still we haven't gotten our family portrait. Maybe I will have to arrange to have a photographer come to our home. Seems to be the only way we'll ever get one. When was the last time you got your entire family together for a family portrait? Who takes the best family portraits?

Hello there. The last time I look a family portrait was half a year ago. I just graduated from University and we took a family portrait with me wearing my graduation gown. =D That was actually my first time taking a proper family portrait. My family and I had taken pictures together before but never a proper family portrait taken in a studio. That's our first time. =D

the last time my family got a family portrait taken was when i was like ... five years old. i'm now nineteen. haha. we'll never get another one taken i don't believe. but, that's ohkay. we take pictures together anyway and don't have to pay a bunch of money to get them printed out by a professional company.

Well i think the last time was this year to make pictures for my family in Canada.I don't know if that counts.But really a family portrait for my own family i think i was 10 or 11 years old.That's all i remember.And i'm 23 so it's been more than ten years ago. When i have my own family i definately want lot of family portraits.

Two years ago when our older daughter was 5 months. We now have another baby and need to get a new portrait. There never seems to be enough time though.

the last family portrait we had was during my parents' 25th anniversary. My mom was not happy then coz my dad hired a bad photography, and he hired him on the last minute. He photographed us in our own home, and we look like monkeys while posing for those "candid" shots. it was not that bad, but it was not great either. My mom cooked and we had a peaceful dinner. But she feels my Dad could've done better for their anniversary.

We had our family portrait about three years ago and is out of necessity since I was applying for a U.S. Visa. We still have't had a chance lately, but we are planning to have one soon. I believe families should have a family portrait once a year to keep a record on how your family grows. This is most exciting while your kids are still young.

I've never taken a family portrait! Oh no, I must be a bad mommy! *gasps* My husband and I both take digital photos of our son all the time, or photos of the other parent with him, but we've only even been in one photo all together that I can think of. And we've never had any professional photos done for him, or done for all of us. We always talk about it, and never get around to it.

My last family portrait was taken in February, and we will get the next one done about the same time, we like to do them around my daughters birthday and get her birthday pictures taken then too.

That reminds me that I am yet to have a family photo with my wife and son. One of these days i am planning to take them to a photo studio and take some family photos so that we could put some on the wall. Now all I have are some photos printed out using the color printer.

Me and my son...our family portrait! - me and my son
We haven't had a family portrait since my kids were small. It's not easy now that they are all grown up and one of my daughters lives in CA. I get a picture of myself with my kids whenever I can and I have to settle for that...lol!
