When we went to Sears with my second child,it was pretty much an assembly line operation. Plop the child down,try and get him/her to smile take maybe 5 shots and done. Waiting a couple hours with a hundred other kids(and parents) in their Sunday best running around with candy and open containers was nerve racking ( I knew it would be my kid catching it on the dress) I can't recall why we started going to Sears, probably because of the ads for "picture day" they sent out, and the "cheaper" prices . After the second time we gave that up ,too much stress . Went to a studio afterwards
