In August, Princess Penelope will start her Senior year of high school. Along with that we will have expenses for graduation announcements, cap & gown fees and Senior Portraits. Her appointment to get the pictures taken was a couple of weeks ago. Yesterday, before she left town, we picked up the proofs. Between the formal portrait, studio casual pictures and outdoor casual pictures, there was an inch thick stack of proofs to go through. I had originally planned to only order the formals, but there are several of the casual pictures that are simply phenomenal, so I've changed my tune a bit.
However, with these phenomenal pictures comes a phenomenal price. Wow. Just wow. I'm really torn... while I had anticipated that the portraits would NOT be cheap, I sorely underestimated the cost. And I sorely underestimated how many of them I would want. AND I didn't realize that I would have to place my order a week from Monday. A 50% down payment is required when I place the order.
I really really really have some big decisions to make. And some serious number crunching. Sigh.
