Affordable Child Photography

A question from Molly:
Does anyone have any suggestions for photographing a two-year-old? My mother will be in town for my daughter's second birthday, and she wants to get an "official" birthday photograph. I'm not generally a huge fan of the posed studio shots, but if anyone has a recommendation for a studio, I might give it a try. I prefer the idea of getting some great "natural" shot, but I'm not much of a photographer myself, and I know that hiring a professional photographer to capture your child frolicking about can cost an arm and a leg. Any ideas or suggestions?
Did you know that one of our own is a superb photographer, specializing in family and child photos? Last holiday season, Sarah offered her services for a Holiday Card Photo Shoot. To see more examples of her work, see how she captures moments at our playdates or w[h]ine nights... Heck, why not just check out all of cafemama's flickr photos!
We've also just received a email from Chris:
So...while I would love to go to Campbell Salgado for family photos, that's not in the budget right now. I would like to get some beautiful, unique portraits of my baby and preschooler, with a photographer who's not bound by convention or stuck in a corporate studio rut. Wise uMamas, whom do you recommend?
