I used to take my family once a year to a local photographer for Easter portrait pictures. The photographer would charge us $150 for the sitting and a small package of pictures. Then we found that JC Penney studios was a little cheaper at $99.99 for the smaller Memories portrait package. But then we heard about this local studio that was much, much cheaper – Portrait Innovations.

It was also close by – in the NorthLake Shopping Center by Mickey & Mooches restaurant. a friend of mine told me that they got a package of portraits done which were just as good-looking as the ones we had done at JC Penny’s portrait studio, but for only $10! I told him there was no way that they can get a price that cheap for family photos like that.
He then showed me an ad that was in a local magazine here that said $9.95 for a package that included one 10×13, two 8x10s, four 5x7s, four 3x5s and 32 wallet sized pictures plus a free CD of the pictures and 6 free personalized potrait cards. JC Penney couldn’t touch that at their $150 package! I also read the fine print on the bottom and it said there was no subject fee, sitting fees or additional charges.
The way I looked at this was that if this was true this was an incredible deal and I can’t turn down incredible deals like this. So I had to try this out. My wife called and made an appointment for the following Tuesday afternoon after the kids got out of school. And we found out that my friend was not kidding – they really do have great pictures at great prices at Portrait Innovations.
we ended up buying some additional personalized portrait cards, but they were very cheap and we had over 20 distant family members that we like to send them to as cards. At these prices we would now be able to do family portrait pictures several times per year – for all the major holidays!
I will never go back to JC Penneys or that overpriced photographer for pictures ever again. They are a rip off compared to the great quality and awesome pricing at Portrait Innovations here in Huntersville NC.
