Family Photos and some great promos at Sears #SearsBabysRoom (Giveaway!)

Growing up, my family never had professional portraits taken (other than school photos for me). My mum was the family photographer, and thus was rarely in the pictures. I don't miss having stilted photos with fake backdrops (though those do get funnier as the years go by) - I loved her candid shots of our family. However, I do dearly wish we had a few of us all together.

Fast forward to now, and I am the family photographer, and thus am rarely in the pictures. I think I need to make more of an effort to get other hands on the camera, so that I can be in pictures with the kids (other than selfies!) - and maybe a few studio portraits are in our future.

Sears has an upcoming special in the portrait studio - from October 25th to November 7th, when you spend $50 or more on kids' fashions, you get a FREE photo shoot at Sears Portrait Studio and 10 FREE personalized photo greeting cards! You can book your session any time between October 25th to December 13th to have it done! So, pick out your photo-ready outfits for the kids and get to posing! I love it... I'm thinking family Christmas cards!

Lucky us, Sears is giving one of my readers one of these photo sessions and the greeting cards! Enter using the Rafflecopter form below. Then keep reading to find out about KidsBucks!

As you may know, Baby Days is also coming up at Sears from October 11-31 - that's 20% off everything baby! And there's a fabulous KidsBucks promotion going on as well. For every $40 you spend on kids' clothing, toys, children's furniture - basically any kids' stuff (except Carters/Osh Kosh, footwear and things with a price ending in .97) - you get $10 in KidsBucks which you can spend between November 1-12. This is good in stores and online, too! Hello, Christmas shopping!

I'm a bigger and bigger fan of Sears the more I learn about it... I always knew about the store, but I am realizing more and more they have great promotions and great brands. It's now one of my go-to stores for sure! I hope you are able to take advantage of some of these offers!

  1. We didn't get them done when I was little. I got them done every year when my kids were younger but we haven't for a couple of years

  2. My family didn't get them done when I was little . I love to get our family photos done every year.

  3. When I was a youngster - amongst my siblings/parents - 7 member family family portraits were far a few between - nonetheless more cherished. Now with my 9 year old son, if finances permit - we try to have a portrait done every 2 years...give or take...tyvm for the chance. Nice package just before Christmas.

  4. We never did them when I was young, but with our first arriving next month, we'd like to do that with her!

  5. I always get them at sears! Great photos every time of the kids.

  6. No, never had pictures takes, only a few odd ones here and there. But when my daughter was born we took them every 6 months when they were young and now we get the school pic!

  7. Not when I was young and unfortunately my son will be 3 in Dec and we just get santas pic so this would be incredible.
