A month or so ago I advertised a discounted newborn photography session on a fb page for local moms. I was really surprised at many of the comments made about that discount and about the “ridiculous” prices for newborn photography. The responses prompted me to update an article that I wrote on what goes into the price of a newborn photo session.
My favorite of those comments was this one: “You could buy a decent used DSLR for that, take them yourself, buy a couple months of Photoshop, …. and still save $.” This comment immediately came to my mind last week when Scarlett came in with her parents and big sister for her newborn session. Scarlett’s grandmother shared with me a text she received from her daughter (Scarlett’s mom) last year after big sister Adeline was born. Mom saw a photo on Pinterest that she tried to copy with Dad and Adeline. I think she pretty quickly learned it wasn’t as easy as it looked. Lol! My assistant and I had fun doing our own version with the newest addition.
