Can you ladies please vote and bump? My husband thinks I spent too much for pictures. he doesn't understand what the cost of things are (you should've seen his eye pop out when he saw the cost of diapers and the nutramigen formula *milk allergy*). He has 4 brothers and sisters..so you know he has a big family that expects them. thanks! I'll post what I spent later! (I really don't think it's bad for what I got)

This is what I got for $170. I also got the Picture CD and the rights to print pics where ever I want to

2   10x13

1   8x10 collage (this was $30 by it's self.....one big pic with 3 little pics in it. I have one of my oldest so I really wanted 1 of both)

1      8x10

6   5x7

12  3 1/2x5

24 wallets

The 2 10x13, the collage, and 3 wallets are for me...the rest is for family

This is one of the pics :-)

I've paid anywhere from $10 (cheap Wal-Mart package, they were just fine)-$200 (big portrait package). I would never spend more than that. And as long as pics are just like once a year, I don't think $200 is bad.

It depends on where they're done, what kind of package I buy, if they're framed for me or I have to frame them, etc.  So, I can't answer yet.  I will tell you that when DS was 2 weeks old, we got a professional pic of him laying in DH's arm its a big picture & they framed it & everything & we paid $150 for it.

Sears... they give you the disc... I get what I want in the package then I go to walmart to print pictures for other people with the disc.

I don't pay for pictures because a good friend of mine is a professional photographer, but if i did i would not spend more than $60.
