boy the price of family portraits sure has gone up since the last time we got them done. I feel shell shocked! We didn't spend that much, there is no way! We went to get our pictures done for the new church parish directory. That picture is free but it has a horrible blue and white background. We wanted some done with us and also some with just the kids with the black background.
When the photographer was done we sat down to choose pics. I asked how much things were since I had no idea. There were no prices listed. She said, "why dont we make the list of the things you want, and then we see how much it is?" That sounded ominous but I made the list. 4 5x7's, 2 8x10's, 2 3x5's and a sheet of wallets of the whole family and the same with just the kids. the photographer told us that came to 500 dollars and my jaw nearly dropped. Then she said it was 380 with the church discount.
We ended up pairing it down to just 2 5x7's of all of us and 2 of the kids. That cost us 106 dollars! Insane.
