I just went to get holiday pictures done of the kids. I ment to use a 7.99 coupon for a small pkg and i'd have to add an addition 5.00 onto it because of having more than 1 person in the photo.     Well, I ended up spending 229.00 instead! Oops.  I got 8 portraits, a 10x13, the edits I wanted on them all and the photo cd which I'm able to edit, print etc, plus 40 holiday cards to mail out.

My dh isn't going to be happy with the amount i spent....

haha. my dh won't even try that. i rarely spend money that isn't on bills or at the grocery store and he's always spending money on stupid stuff. My kids are 3, 20 months and 6 months and we've never had their pictures taken.

Yikes! you could have come to me, gotten all of that AND a keepsake box with 50 4x6 prints. You wouldn't have had to leave the house either...lol

I spend a ton on pictures too though. My thinking is I want to capture everything from when they are little and the best way to do it is through pictures. ;)

well......i bet half that price was just for the cd since you get the copyright of those pictures. I have considered buying just the cd so i can print off which pics i wanted and what sizes i wanted.

I have never been happy with the quality of the CD pictures. I am pretty good about using just the coupon to get what I want when we do pictures. I got loads of pics of my son when he was a baby for free. The picture people hated it but that is life. Now I just do it myself most often.
