Today, Isaac and I journeyed into Santa Rosa to the My Baby Expo. I didn't really know what to expect, given I had only heard about the event off a sign posted on the telephone pole on the way to daycare, but boy am I glad we went! We got loaded with free stuff and saw some of the awesome new gadgets in baby and mommy gear! Among our stash, we walked away with new design Avent bottles (Score! this is our bottle!), a Munchie Mug, some sippie cups, play-doh recipes, TONS of coupons, free samples of wipes, boogie wipes, diapers, a baby brag book....soooo much stuff.
We visited every booth, and more so, we talked to every booth, even if it didn't really apply to our situation. All the folks there were excellant resources and knew many baby things, other that what they were there for. We also entered all the raffles, so hopefully we are contacted to say we won something! I really want this chair or this storyboard. Fingers crossed!
The main reason I went was to scout photographers. There were some great ones there, but I think we are going to go with the Giggle Gallery. We did a little session with them (it was only $4) and the photographer worked really well with Isaac. We ordered a set of prints (only $12), and her prices are a little more in our budget than the others that were there. One thing I must say...I know that photographers are professionals, and make a lot of money on prints. But seriousy, If I am paying you $200 - $300 for 30 minutes, I want access to the digital copy of my pictures...especially if a sheet of wallets is $62. Is that so wrong? :( Too much to ask, I know. I am probably just being too cheap.
