For those saying "more if it includes prints."
How much for a session and a package that includes 10 gift prints (under 8x10) and 1 11x14?



And would you all rather have the disc with a print release or print packages?

Quoting Mayhem ♥:" Probably around $100? Maybe $125? Because discs cost a shit ton elsewhere but they don't usually cost as much with independent photographers. Also...is the girl in the white related to you? :lol:"

75-150 just for the cd, youd obviously get more money out of me with prints

200-225



And I'd rather have both lol but if I had to chose then the prints, the quality is significantly better than printing at a Walmart or walgreens

i would offer different packages.. like JUST the disk or have the disk discounted when you put it in a portrait package with prints

I'd do $150-$200.



For me, the cd with print release is the important part.

I'd much rather have a print package, personally. I'd be willing to pay 200-250, although I'm terrible at these things.



When we had our photos taken, we ordered two story boards, and two collage photos that turned our beautifully. So, we paid more for those of course....and our photographer was amazing!

I'd rather have prints, because honestly, I lose the CD within a month or so. I seem to take better care of prints. Idk why.



And also like I said printing the pictures from the disc can be a pain especially if you take them to WalMart, Target, etc because their prints aren't as high quality. I'd rather have a couple HIGH quality prints then a lot of low quality ones.



And I'd say $200-225.

I'd imagine that it also depends on the area/market....so I don't know what it is like where you are.



Also, I forgot to add, I believe the session fee was around 75$. Although it was waived for us.
