    He'll get over it. They're something you'll have to treasure for a lifetime. I'm sure you've both spent that much and more money on miscellaneous crap before that's gone to the wayside and been forgotten and never gets used anymore.

    I'm sure they're lovely too. I'd be hard pressed not to spend a fortune on prints if I got professional photos of Ronan done too.

    That's how they get you. Most people can't resist pics of their cute kids. I'm sure you'll enjoy the photos though.

    I don't blame you, but...could I ask how many/what sizes you got for that? As I am a photographer, and I am in the middle of researching prices of other photographers prices!?

    My Sis did similar but a few weeks later her DH doesn't mind any more, he just appreciated the pictures now, especially when her original choices were estimated at £1,000!! So it could of been worse. She felt the same as you about it though, a bit guilty but that they are worth it :flower:

    A photography company goes to my sons nursery every 3 or so months to do professional photo shoots and you get the option to have all the photos on a CD for about £29 so we do that then get the photos printed off ourselves :)

    Thanks for your replies ladies, I cant wait to see them. They wont be ready till the st - a long wait!

    Jellybeann - I'm sorry but I don't actually know the sizes as they just pointed to all the photos that they had stuck on the walls and showed me the sizes like that.

    :haha:

    Everyone was trying to make me turn them down but then the prices would have gone up if Id decided to purchase them the next day so I went back the same day and they were about to close the shop. I just couldnt say no when I looked at them second time. I bet I would have had a massive strop if I hadnt purchased them and then gone and bought them for the full price the next day :blush:

    Wow, they are gorgeous. Your LO is a right cutey. Mummies melt at the sight of their LO's, even if its a photo.

    Im sure they are minting it aswel.

    Just saw you are going to be having another baby soon - I wish you all the best x

    We spent £400 on photos last october, we had a photoshoot as a family but mainly they were of LO. My dad paid for them but OH was still shocked at how much they cost. The pic in my avatar is one of the pics from that photoshoot
