    Very...Most people in my school who get them spend like 4 to 5 hundred which is insane expensive.

    as much as you want to spend on them. they could go as low as $30 and as much as $300. typically most people spend about $50~$80

    Mine were 15 for the shoot, but I just did the standard yearbook poses.

    Don't know how much the prints will run.

    One of my friends told me that the cheapest package was $95. The prices will vary from school to school obv.

    I just spent $45 on prints of the yearbook shot (no sitting fee) of my son.

    When I do a senior sitting, I charge $85 for the sitting fee which includes your proofs and my seniors usually buy between $100 and $250 in prints. I don't have a studio and all my sittings are on location. The high-end studios around here are $500-$600 including prints and a bound book of photos.

    I took a photography class in Wisconsin and while I was there the photographer I was taking the class from had a $2200 sale of a senior. This included a 20 x 24, which I can't even imagine hanging in my house -- the whole family maybe, but not just of one kid.

    Mine were free, well I had to give them a deposit but ya. I'm just going to be in the yearbook, I don't need a photo album or anything.

    depends how you go... my best friend got hers done for like 350 which inclued the studio time, beach shots, and all the prints.. package price. from some random person with a camera... ok not totally random but you get what i mean..


    most kids either go to harrington or tucker around here.. i just got mine done, the session was 89 and then i had to order the pictures.. which was like 80? but i only bought like 48 wallets.. my mom was paying and i wasn't going to argue.. i mean if she's paying for all those application fees.. i know when to shut up... but there were lots of packages and stuff ranging from like 300-1000.. it can get expensive.. it just depends on what you want..

    beach shots?
    What I don't get is - where do all of these pictures go? Do they include all in the yrbk, or what?

    My school charges 40-80 on them depending on the number of poses you want, but I've only ever seen one pose - the one with you in your gown - in the yrbk. What's the point of the others?

    The cheapest package at our school is $65.

    One shot is the "yearbook shot", which goes in the yearbook. THe rest of them are just for your family and friends to have.

    the cheapest package at my school was $30
    for the actual pictures, they run at about $200-$500
  • angelt841angelt841 Posts: 149Registered User Junior Member
    most people spend around $200 at my school or don't buy the pictures at all. There was a sitting fee, but you dont have to pay for your yearbook picture. The company also sells a CD with all the pics from your photo shoot for about $375

    So basically, very expensive. I couldn't even think of buying a class ring...

    At my school, they're $35-40 depending on whether or not you want the cap and gown picture for yourself, too.
