“Why do photographers charge so much??”

Today I was reading through blogs and stumbled upon a post that said this:

“If you ask yourself why photographers “charge so much” for taking pictures…

They don’t get paid vacation, they don’t get paid sick days, they don’t get bonuses for outstanding performances nor for Christmas. They don’t have company health insurance plans nor do they qualify for unemployment. They pay for tons of insurance from liability to equipment and studio overhead. The pay for classes and mentoring to stay up with the newest technology and trends in the business.  They maintain thousands of dollars of equipment. They sacrifice their family on special days…so that they can bring happiness to others. Illness or personal affairs are not excuses for a bad photo. Next time you ask, remember that photographers are photographers because of the love of creating portraits, but that love doesn’t pay debts.”

I’ve said that to myself many times but to read it having been written by another photographer is great. We give up precious family time to create unforgettable moments in your lives.. because that is important to us-  for you to have amazing memories of your family.
