do both?! lol! your friend is doing them free anyway. we paid for a shoot that was both indoors and outdoors. the indoors one was nice, but we really REALLY liked the outdoors ones since we got to be more ourselves. but we’re also glad to have the indoor ones since the lighting is just perfect!

Just explain that you really had a vision of outdoor photos and you would hate for her to waste her money. She’ll understand. I’m sure she is just trying to help. Tell her that you might take her up on her offer once the first grand baby comes around, you could do a baby portait session. That will appease her for sure!

Just do both. Then no feathers are ruffled and you get what you want too.

Studio portraits can be great, cute, and show your love. However, if its a portrait mill type studio like Sears or Walmart, just be realistic of what you will get. Portrait mill portraits.

You’re not paying so just go have fun and make it the best as you can, portraits are about fun. Laughing

I would do both. And you could explain to FMIL that your photographer friend is trying to build his/her portfolio and wanted to practice shooting photos of a couple. I think you’ll end up loving both sets of photos, because they’ll be pretty different – different locations, different photographic styles, etc. Have fun!!! 🙂

Do both and use one of the photos from her session on an announcement or something more formal or have one framed and give it to her!
