    Don’t do it unless you know how much the extras cost. A DVD of the pics could be hundreds, if not a thousand dollars, depending on how the “deal” is structured. Getting your hair and makeup done professionally is also really expensive. Make sure that it’s a gift worth that much before you leap! Groupon-type deals like this are rarely profitable for photographers, so they tend to be a red flag to me. You’re probably going to be gouged on the back end of this deal so that they can make money.

    Just looked at the pricing on their website. To get a disc with all the images, it’s about $1000. You’re saving 50% off the sitting fee, so it’d probably be like $800 total if you want the disc.

    I saw this and didn’t think it was worth it with digital copies of even just a few pictures.

    I don’t think you missed out on anything special here.  Basically they are just discounting the sitting fee.  They do have a package on their website for 99 dollars (30 min sitting fee) or one for 595 that includes some retouched images and an album.

    In addition, I don’t think the work is that great.  I am not a big fan of studio boudoir, I think the bedroom environment is more appropriate.

    The other red flag I see is the amount of images they take. 100 proofs for a 30 min session and 250 for a 1.5 hour session.  That is maddness, and I am sure other photographers here will agree, especially in a studio setting.
