  • If you co to an actual professional photographer it can get pretty rediculous, but the plus is usually better scenery to choose from and well to me that is about it. they charge way to much for prints in my eyes. Get some coupons for Sears you can get out around 150 and get the coupons for JC Penney and it will probably be about 100.

  • It depends on where you go, how many poses you want, and how many portraits you want.

  • I paid a professional $250 for a CD of all 6 members of my family with group and separate portraits on them - I can print out whichever ones I want in whatever sizes are appropriate.

  • I think it depends on where you get them. I know from past experience that Picture People do great work but are exorbitant price wise like 350.00. Then Walmart does some good ones but again in the 150-175 range. Penney's may do them for about 150-200. I am a sucker for pictures of dd though I don't ever give all of them away. I was working at a school for 8 years and since she was born, I had the school take them. I would get hers dome instead of mine and get some freebies then I would pick what I liked and would order more on line.

    Also, this year she's in Kindergarten so the school takes them. They are from Lifetouch like the school I worked at so I paid 57.00 for a CD which would be 25.00 if I bought it separately, a class picture and lots of others like 8x10's, 5x7's 2x3's and wallet sizes. That's the best price I have found yet and they turn out well
