I noticed if i want just digital files its like $600-$700 on some photography websites. That seems really crazy high to me. Maybe i am just uneducated in this area?
I really don't want to spend more than $300.
@N+T: i do not charge that,,i think that is just ridiculous..seriously look up bronzer photography on facebook..thats my page..im trying to get into newborn photography. Im actually uploading the pictures of my sisters baby right now over there if your interested let me know
I also have a neighbor and friend who is a new photographer. She said she will give me a deal but she hasn't gotten specific on the details. Her price book shows $650 for a disc.
I have an excoworker who does photography too, but not sure about her price on digital images.
I really want someone who has all the props for some neat photos. A lot of new photographers don't have that, or they are limited. But the established photographers are pricey. So i have to see what kind of photos can be done with out many props.
I also want to incorporate my two dogs in one or two of the photos with baby.
They aren't going to take many. You get maybe 2 different "poses" if you will. These are just to show, hey this is you at day one of your life. These are not super expensive and there isn't going to be any props. Just a photo with the t shirt of the name of the hospital showing. At least that is what I got with both of mine.
Then usually at 3 months you get photos done. Well that is what I did. 3, 6, 9 and 12. For the first year. Since I new this was something I wanted to do, I didn't spend a fortune on infant photos. But once they are older you will want to spend a bit more money. At least that is what we did.
