    Bought the new lighting stuff, and took them over to a buddy's house to take pics of their new baby:

    http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=4077829

    Apparently they've been getting lots of compliments of the ones I sent them, and everyone wants to know who the photographer was.

    Thought about doing this on the side as a little extra $$. I would take the shots at their house over the course of an hour or two, come back, edit the shots, and give them a disc of ~25-50 to let them do whatever they want with.

    i don't think i want to get into selling prints or making albums or any of that stuff. I suppose i could make it available, but who knows.

    Thought about charging $200 for this. I looked around a bit, and that seems to be on the low-side of baby photographers. I'm just a dude with a nice camera, some great glass, lights, and some good referrals ... not a photographer. :o

    :dunno:

    The pics are better than your gonna get at a big chain store like Babies R Us or Olan Mills. My wife paid I think about $60 for the sitting and the photos from both of those places since our baby was born. If your not wanting to get far into it you could just match those places prices and just give them photos on a CD that are edited/cropped properly for print.

    $60 for the sitting fee AND prints? How many prints?

    unless i was trying to "build my portfolio", i don't think $60 is worth my time to stop drinking on a saturday. :big grin:

    the only places my kids have ever had their photos taken was a family friend who is a pro photographer (and great with kids), wal-mart, or here at home. :o the pro charges about a $100 sitting fee (per kid) and then only sells you prints(8x10's are $45 for and example). walmart was just once or twice for a picture of my daughter to throw in christmas cards, and it was like $20 for the sitting fee and a package of photos.

    I'm sure they'd love for you to buy many more, but we usually get the usual 8x10, 2 5x7's, and some wallets.

    I agree, it wouldn't be worth my time either.
