Quoting kaaw:" i should've added a disclaimer... i pay $300 and that is a discounted price because the photographer ... [snip!] ... less. i could print through her too, but i just go cheap (shutterfly or costco) for sending prints out to the family and stuff."


That makes me want to see these pictures that are $300 for a discounted price. :lol:

I'd LOVE to, actually.



I married a Marine (although, I had him before they did!), so I'm stuck.



Come to Cali for your honeymoon to do my newb pics :wink:

I-40 cuts through Knoxville which is only and hour and a half from me. :lol:

ETA-- I actually pay $200, not $300 as I previously said. I checked my receipts. :oops:



it is more about the larger quantity of shots and all of the editing. when she first started i got a session for $100.



for you, becca, i'll PM you slideshow links if you want. she did my wedding and has done 7 shoots of my daughter. we have our next one scheduled for tuesday with my daughter and now the NB son.

her normal photo sessions (for what I get) are $350. ETA-- she lists a $150 option on her website with a couple of prints and a sheet of wallets, etc..

that it is! i've been trying to talk all of my 2 friends into moving out here. One almost did this year but her hubby got a better job back in PA. Even my family wants to move out here. It's different people, depending where you're at they're generally friendlier than east coasters.

Eh. If he says no just ask if he can take you via ambulance.

As long as they do it at 110 and with the sirens on, I'm game :D



Really though, I wouldn't be able to travel because of wanting to monitor my cervix closely, give me my weekly shots, and such.



Luckily, he says that I may be able to give myself the shots in the thigh instead of having to come in to do it...and I'm going to try to see if I can get him to agree to have a doctor in MD do an ultrasound with cervical measurements for him and send him the results and IF I'm having any changes, go ahead and put in the cerclage ASAP when I get home. I'd have a scan done a day or two before I left and be gone a month---he wants to do scans every 2 weeks, so I'd only "miss" one and could just have the scan done there)



If I already have a cerclage (we have a plan for when/whether to do it), it wont' be as much of an issue and I'm sure he will agree to just have a local doc do the ultrasound to measure my cervix to monitor things.
