$490 Baby Photos

June 2nd, 2007 at 08:13 am

We had a set of photos taken at our local Pixie Photo studio when DS1 was a baby. Although we have plenty of photos taken by family members. the ones taken in a studio have a certain something that comes from good lighting and professional posing. At the time a "package deal" cost around $100 for a set of various photos and sizes.

Now that DS2 is around the same age we again went to Pixie Photo for the same sort of photos for our enlarged family. The special offer this time was just for one basic photo for $10.95. While we were there we had a series of other pictures taken of the two boys. In the end we selected several of these extra photos in various formats, for a total cost of $490 !!! This really is a lot of money for half a dozen photos, but you can't compare the quality of these photos to your regular snapshots. I figure that you have to spend your money on something, and as a "once off" expense it's worth it for something that will become a family keepsake.

    Well these are your kids, I figure it is ok if it is a one time deal but I know some one who spent about $300 every 3 months for her kid photo

    You might want to stick one or two of those photos in your safety deposit box "just in case." Obviously they mean a lot to you and it makes sense to protect them.

    A friend took my wedding photos and was nice enough to give me the negatives, which I keep stashed in my safety deposit box.
