Sometimes it just pays to pay

In an aim to be frugal, we tried to be the ones to personally take pictures of our kids' birthday parties. It was fine for the home parties, but since we were the hosts, it was pretty difficult. Sometimes we even forget to take some shots.  And that's quite sad, because photos are irreplaceable.

I guess the more practical thing would be to enlist the help of relatives or friends. Ask them to bring their cameras, whether it's a simple point and shoot, Exilim EX-H20G or a DSLR and ask for the pictures later.

Of course, it's less hassle to hire a photographer. I actually saw a package which already included the photobook and costs only a little over the photobook itself (in Digiprint). I thought to myself that had I known about that earlier, I would have spent the 5000 bucks and hired them. Oh well, that's all water under the bridge.
