  • I use the coupons :) We usually just get the packet for $8.99 and then pay to have them put online. I come home and save all of the shots on my computer and can print out as many as I want :)

  • I got a coupon in the mail for portraits at Sears. 36 portraits for $9.99 but 2 sheets are wallet size and "mini's". You only get one pose but they take a bunch so you can chose your favorite. Everytime we go I get another coupon so I just go every couple months!

  • one good yearly photo by a professional is all you need. take all the digitals you want, anytime, or use the cheap photo studios at dept stores for seasonal photos. you don't have to spend hundreds of dollars every time....and they say the economy is going down the drain??

  • I am the manager and photographer at a local portrait studio (in the "cheap dept store") and people on average spend 80-100 dollars per visit.
