    just as a reference my sessions start at $500-$750 - with a print credit. digital negatives, albums, etc.... are extra. but im in CA and prices vary across the country. and even within a region.
    Thanks Leigh!

      Here in Chicago my session was $300. I don't get print credit but I do the high resolution negatives on disc. I really wanted it to do a book so the prints really didn't matter to me.

              I have not gotten the quote back from my photog, but I think it will be $350 with a $100 print credit. The album will probably cost $300-400. It is the smae photog that is shooting my wedding, so I have already paid to have ownership of all the pictures taken. I will let you know when I confirm my prices.

                I read the post title too quickly and thought it said the cost of BAD photo, I was thinking that would have to be pretty cheap! LOL

                  a custom designed cover, dustjacket (with the same picture as the
                  cover), and a little black slipbox with your name on it (or a little
                  phrase.) The books are usually 20 - 30 pages long, depending on the
                  design. It takes 4-6 weeks to publish the book, so all in all, about 8
                  weeks after you give me your selections. A disc of images is not
                  included with the session, but can be purchased for $400.

                  I don't know if it is too much or not. She is an excellent photographer from what I see in on her website.
                  That sounds almost exactly like the BD album that just arrived today of mine!! It looks great and I can see why it's called a pillow book instead of a coffee table book, b/c yo wouldn't want it on the coffee table anyway. lol

                  I evidently got a KICk-A$$ fabulous deal on mine!

                  It was my photogs 1st BD session, so the shoot was also able to help her build her BD portfolio. I paid $165 for the session and book (20 pages). I think I actually only paid for the book now that I see all of these higher prices (I need to send her a HUGE thank you!) And our shoot was like 4-hours, so I am so grateful that I found her! WOW!!!

                  P.S. I didn't get a CD with the images or any prints, though, aside from the BD album, but I can order some from Pictage, which I am going to do.

                      photographer's prices are so subjective. i think when it comes to photography, especially something super intimate like boudoir, you have to find someone whose work and personality you connect with #1! price has to be secondary.
                      try to find someone who specializes in boudoir. when you are wearing next to nothing, its critical that you are posed in a flattering way. the more experience someone has the better. bad body positioning can make a skinny girl have rolls you know?
