Default Family Portraits!!

I got stopped in the street a few weeks back by someone trying to give out 10 vouchers for a sitting in a new photo studio that has opened in our local Debenhams, so i paid my ten quid and thought it might be a laugh and we have never had a family portrait and our son is 7.
sooooo today was the day we arrived to find the place full of screaming babies who obviously did not want to have there picture taken however much a fluffy duck was waved at them!!
The actual session was a laugh and my son loved it, so after we waited for 15 min we could look at the pic's having already paid ten quid I thought we wouldn't buy any more as they were so expensive but bugger it they were great and so 165 quid later I will be picking up 6 yes just 6 photos in few weeks!
I am such a mug!

Sounds great, and you can't put a price on memories like that!

Will we get to see?

Haha, you always think you'll never buy pics then can't resist.

My mum got a free voucher for a session at Venture when she got her new car and decided it would be nice to get a photo of all her grandchildren (my sister had just had a baby). I vowed I wouldn't buy anything as I know Venture are ridiculously expensive, but needless to say I ended up spending a lot of money on four photos. They are fab though.

I bought a voucher at a Venture party recently and at the end of the month am having my photo done with my six best friends. We're going to get our photos taken in our pyjamas as that's what we always wear when we're together! Not when we go out though, haha. I'm really looking forward to it, but hope I have the will power to only take the photo that's included in the price of the voucher and not upgrade to something bigger and more expensive.

ya, have to respond to this one!! The schools pictures are outrageous and don't even look good, but the kids come home all proud of their photos and you HAVE to buy! Oh and from spending so much money on school pics, we never had enough left to get family pics for the year. So the kids have tons of yearly pics for themselves and nothing really for mom!! Seriuosly though, the schools suck but the girls are still adorable so I have those!! And - the photgrapher has my money. lol

Sorry to hear that - my wife was given a similar opportunity for a cut price photoshoot in London.

I am seriously cynical and could see 500 - 1000 just slpping away down the drain because I knew that that the 100 'offer' never lives up to that.

Well I dragged myself there and after 3 hours of pics and a further 2 hours of serious stonewall haggling I got them down from 1500 (lol) to 200 for around 20 pics.

It was the toughest day of my life but I guess worth it as the pics will be a memory keeper.

we got them down from 1000 to 500, but even then we didnt get all the photos as they had promised.
