We have on occasion. Usually my wife or I is doing the shooting when we're out anywheere, so it's rare for us to get a good picture of the whole family.

We bought this year's opening day shot. The guy did a great job, the kids actually look happy, and the field looks so nice stretching out behind us.

I just say no.

I have never bought any pictures but I always let them take a few even if they ask me 2 or 3 times because they have to meet a quota for the job and I they are working hard so i say snap away it doesnt cost anything. My family ordered once form them and liked the picture very much. So if you like it I say get it.

Usually let them take some pictures. Haven't bought any yet, but probably will someday in the future.

I've bought them several times, if we all look good in them. In fact, we had a couple taken at opening day, and I already sent in my order. One picture is with my 2 boys, the other is with my Dad and one of my brothers. We always say yes to the Fanfoto people, you never know when a treasured picture will be taken. They are pretty expensive, though.

Bought one at Chase Field a couple of years ago at a D'Backs/Cubs playoff game. It was a good picture, and every time I look at it, I smile at the outcome of that series. :D:

I never have, but back in 2008 they got a good one of me and my family. I should have ordered it.

I feel bad for them - they must feel like they're pestering people. People can get quite nasty with them.

We bought one of their pictures last year. It came out well and had the field spread out behind us as a great background. We bought a simple print -- I don't understand spending the big money for the fancy frames or other geegaws in their catalog.

I just tell them I'm wanted and I can't be havin my picture taken. Actually, I DID get one once, during a grinder bash I think.
