How much would you pay? *pics* Bonnie Beaver♥ Due April 8; 2 kids; North Pole, Alaska 18313 posts

Session is 1-2 hours actually taking the photographs (newborn 2-4 hours) and a cd with print release with 15-20 images.
How much would you pay?
And should I change my pricing/cd structure to include prints?

About $100. I pay my photographer about $350 but while your photos are good, the coloring is off so it's obvious you're still learning. (I do not mean this in a shitty way)

You did much better than the photographer I hired and I payed her 150. So I'd say 200.

We just had our family pictures done. The girl was very good. She charged $80 for a 2 hr session. If I knew how to post pics on here I would show some.

The coloring is off in the bridal ones because I put a color fill over them to make them that way.

$250-$300.



You're pretty good. In my area photographers charge $350-$600. Most of them are terrible photographers who shouldn't charge that much. I'd hire you!

While you're really good, I'd want more than 15 pictures for a couple hundred dollars.

Why more than 15-20? I've wondered this when people say it. haha. Because I don't do doubles of the same pose unless it's newborn and I do a B&W conversion. Or unless the client specifically asks for a B&W conversion of an image.

I'd probably pay $100 for the family pics and $200- $250 for the newborn pics. They are good but not quite "there" yet. As another poster said the colors look off and there are flares in weird places, I realize you said you used a filter that made it look like that but it doesn't look super professional IMO.

:lol: The flares are sun flares.
