Proffesional Photos

During the last month my eldest daughter has had some professional photos taken of Sydney-May and although the photos are great and look good it really gets me how much these places charge for photos.

At one place she paid $1400 for the photos that included 4 A4 size photos and 2 A3 size photos and a cd with all the photos they took on it. At the other place she paid $300 for the photos and a cd which only had two shots on it. I am not sure how many photos are in that pack as she hasn't picked them up yet, but really it seems to bloody much to me.

I would love to have a large family photo done for my parents 50th wedding anniversary but at the prices they want we just can't afford it. Although my sister said her husband knows someone who may be able to do it cheaper she has got to get him to ask his friend.

Considering technology has made photography easier and cheaper, theu shouldn't be charging so much. She sure is cute.

Lovely photos Jo-Anne, and yes it's expensive but so are good digital cameras, so we the consumer have to pay the price.
Still to me the pricing is over the top.

Hi Diane & Whiteangel

Thanks for saying the photos are lovely and at least we have the discs with the photos on them, you never use to get that so that bit is a plus.

Such an adorable child Jo-Anne. In the scheme of things, these will become priceless treasures and continue to bring joy to you all.

Hi - I stumbled upon your blog randomly and thought I'd offer a suggestion. Have you tried googling portrait photographers in your area? These are better than studio photographers because they will take you out on location and depending on the photog you pick, you can get pictures that are 100x better than the studio and it should be a lot less than the $1400. Hope this helps!
