    My biggest pricing challenge is session packages such as baby’s first year, etc.

  2. Sarah on June 17, 2010 at 9:09 am

    My greatest pricing challenge is pricing myself not too high – but not too low that I am under pricing myself. I just don’t know the “right” price to have.

  3. Sarah on June 17, 2010 at 9:10 am

    I have an MCP banner on my blog! http://sarahcarper.blogspot.com/

    I don’t even know where to start….all of it! Packages…a la carte….albums….session fee…friends & family….I need help!

  5. Heather on June 17, 2010 at 9:12 am

    The biggest pricing challenge for me right now is how to price myself competitively (as a newbie in the market) without underpricing myself….Heather

  6. Chelsea LaVere on June 17, 2010 at 9:12 am

    The biggest challenge is people thinking I’m too “expensive” and also valuing my work at what price it should be. I just need to be smacked upside my head with some wisdom! haha- Chelsea 🙂

  7. Christa on June 17, 2010 at 9:12 am

    Being bold enough to take value in my own work, time, etc.

  9. Jeannine Cooper on June 17, 2010 at 9:13 am

    My greatest pricing challenge is figuring out how to price accordingly for customers due to the economy and also the geographical location where I live. Don’t want to be overpriced, yet don’t want to be underpriced either.

  11. Amy Bowman on June 17, 2010 at 9:13 am

    Trying to figure out how much I am actually worth, I guess. I am just getting started!

  12. Monica on June 17, 2010 at 9:13 am

    My greatest pricing challenge is believe in my work enough to charge for it! I think I am good enough, but when it comes time to tell people my prices, it’s really hard! Am I really worth that much??

  13. Donna on June 17, 2010 at 9:13 am

    My biggest challenge is not under pricing myself and pricing myself for what my work is worth.

  14. Julie on June 17, 2010 at 9:14 am

    My biggest challenge is pricing myself high enough. I have such a hard time determining the “magic” price.

    I’m not sure if I’ll get customers for the price I want to charge.

  17. Angie on June 17, 2010 at 9:15 am

    My biggest pricing problem is standing by my prices, and not letting people try to talk them down because they think that they are “too expensive in this economy.”

  18. Ivette Cabanas on June 17, 2010 at 9:15 am

    Being able to offer the “right” price.. not too high and not to low!

  19. Heather on June 17, 2010 at 9:16 am

    Sorry I forgot that I couldn’t put facebook and twitter entries again for following that way so please erase those 2 entries.

  20. Susie on June 17, 2010 at 9:16 am

    I am just starting out and don’t want to get stuck being a “cheap” photographer. So I need help a little in all areas. But print pricing I would have to say is my weakness right now.

  21. Leah on June 17, 2010 at 9:16 am

    My greatest pricing challenge is creating collections in such a way that will encourage people to spend more than the minimum amount.

  22. Heather on June 17, 2010 at 9:16 am

    My greatest pricing challenge is having pricing that is enticing and flexible, but still at a level that is not undercutting my talent and time.

  23. Laura on June 17, 2010 at 9:16 am

    My greatest pricing challenge is… ALL OF IT! I have had such a rough time with pricing. Especially since I live on a military base. Everyone seems to think my prices are so high, but I am pretty cheap compared to most pro’s in the area. I just don’t know where I am going wrong?!?!

  24. Twyla on June 17, 2010 at 9:17 am

    My biggest question is how to begin pricing and at what level.

  25. Chelsea LaVere on June 17, 2010 at 9:17 am

    I’m now following you on Twitter!- Chelsea 🙂

  26. Trimella Vincent on June 17, 2010 at 9:17 am

    I’m afraid of under charging and the clients thinking I am not good enough to charge a bigger price. But I don’t want to be to high for the area and scare people off.

  27. Heather on June 17, 2010 at 9:18 am

    I just posted about the giveaway at my twitter account http://twitter.com/heatherbrandt (I already follow MCP Actions)

  28. Connie McClain on June 17, 2010 at 9:18 am

    I am just getting started into the biz, so pricing is very overwhelming to me! The biggest thing is that I don’t want to set my prices too high and turn away new clients…but then again, I don’t want to set them too low and sell myself short. And then there’s the pricing for the prints and other products…and putting together packages! I’ve come up with an idea, but I’m not very confident about it.

  29. Susan on June 17, 2010 at 9:18 am

    I have not done collections yet – scared to really. So this would be my next pricing challenge that I’m dealing with.

  30. Erin O on June 17, 2010 at 9:19 am

    The greatest challenge is going from free while building my portfolio to charging when i actually open my business. I hope to open it in the next 4-5 months or so. So winning this would be extremely beneficial to me.I subscribe to this feed, am a fan on fb and twitter and have a post on my blog about this promotion. http://www.erinleigho.weebly.com/my-thoughts-blog.html

  31. Brandi Liner on June 17, 2010 at 9:19 am

    My greatest pricing challenge is knowing how to start. I read another post and the photographer stated to make your prices what you want them to be in a year and use discounts until then. I am just starting my business and looking into other local photographers prices doesn’t help. I don’t want to be over priced, but at the same time I don’t want to short change myself. This book would really allow me to learn the ins and outs of pricing my work. Thank you for this opportunity.

  32. Shannen Patnoad on June 17, 2010 at 9:19 am

    I think my biggest problem with pricing is really figuering out what something is worth. Art, cost, time, shipping, etc and then how much people will value its worth…Sticker shock can cause very low bookings but low ball pricing is like woring for free…Help

  33. amanda o. on June 17, 2010 at 9:19 am

    the same as a few others…the boldness to value my own time, work, at a reasonable price for myself & the client….

    Being new in the photography business the greatest challenge with me and pricing is knowing whether or not I am charging enough, too much, or just the right amount with the great amount of competition on my area.

  42. Kate Lowenstein on June 17, 2010 at 9:22 am

    Should I do ala carte, package pricing, digital files? Last year I added a digital file collection, but clients scoffed at the price. Only one client was a taker. I want to give the clients what they want, but I need to make money here!

  43. Susan on June 17, 2010 at 9:22 am
  44. Mike on June 17, 2010 at 9:22 am

    My greatest challenge is when doing work for friends. I always feel guilty about charging them the same as I would charge a stranger, but the majority of my work at the moment comes from friends. So in order for my business to get off the ground, I have to try to be tough and charge what I believe is a fair price.Obviously I’ve invested heavily in equipment, training and time, so I have to start recouping that, but it can be so hard, especially when you know that person doesn’t have much in the way of spare change.BTW; I actually did a blog post about MCP Actions yesterday!

  49. Christine Long on June 17, 2010 at 9:24 am

    My biggest pricing challenge is how to not underprice/undervalue my work. I am constantly struggling to get the right price on both my a la carte items and my session packages (maternity/newborn; baby’s first year; etc.) I’m also starting to think about putting senior photo packages together, and I’m not sure where to start with that and with pricing them.

    understanding that i need to charge for what i do because my time is worth something.

  53. Sommer on June 17, 2010 at 9:25 am

    My biggest challenge is pricing myself to be competitive in this area but also making money. My area is concentrated with a lot of people doing photography for VERY little money.

  54. Alexis on June 17, 2010 at 9:25 am

    Pricing out multiple sessions AND pricing out products.

  58. Jessica Schmale on June 17, 2010 at 9:27 am

    My greatest pricing challenges are knowing when to give a deal to friends, and how much to charge for digital images.

  59. Brooke Reynolds on June 17, 2010 at 9:27 am

    My biggest challenge is just trying to figure out where to start…at a lower price to begin with or a higher price with a discount or??? I don’t want to underprice, but I also don’t want to overprice. I really need help SOON! I’m ready to launch my website, but I’m battling over what prices to post on there…or if I should put prices on my site at all… Thanks for having this contest!! 🙂

  60. Shane on June 17, 2010 at 9:27 am

    Biggest pricing challenge these days is that everyone has a digital camera and everyone is a photographer. People can go down to WalMart for $4.99 and get a package.. How do you explain that to the customer? People don’t understand sitting fees or why your prints are not $.49. So I’d say that photography has become cheapened and it is up to us to figure out a way to bring value back to what we do.

  61. Michelle Johnson on June 17, 2010 at 9:28 am

    My greatest challenge is finding a balance between charging enough to make a profit and not scaring away customers while I’m still starting out.

  62. Annie Patrick on June 17, 2010 at 9:28 am

    My biggest struggle with pricing is coming up with unique packages/collections and letting people make me feel bad for my pricing. I feel that I’m worth it but haven’t been confident enough. I always feel bad when giving out quotes. We live in a small community where money is tight, but basically I just use that as an excuse! I need to value myself in all aspects of my biz!

  63. Jessica on June 17, 2010 at 9:29 am

    Sometimes I think I priced too little,it’s not enough pay for the work, and others it’s easy and I feel like I got away with asking too much. There should be a middle ground that I can’t seem to find.

  64. Danielle C on June 17, 2010 at 9:29 am

    Adequately pricing for the market around me and for the market I want.

  65. ali b. on June 17, 2010 at 9:29 am

    My greatest pricing challenge is just knowing how people are being affected by our economy (esp. right now since I live on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico)and wanting, in my heart, to cater to them AS WELL as make sure me & my family & my business are taken care of. It’s a constant struggle sticking to my guns & not letting myself be too soft-skinned.

    My biggest challenge I face with pricing my portraits, is that I can’t find a happy medium to where I can price my photography so its custom and I can bring customers in with a resonable price, but still make a profit from it. I also need to make seperate pricing for babies, seniors, and general portraits. Its all so confusing.

  69. Molly on June 17, 2010 at 9:31 am

    Would love to win this! My biggest challenge with pricing is getting started and coming up with the ideas of packages.

  71. Bunny Kramer on June 17, 2010 at 9:32 am

    As professionals, pricing is one of our most challenging issues. No matter if we are mediocre or accomplished photographers, our pricing will be the make or break it issue.Thank you!Bunny

    My biggest pricing challenge is not charging enough! I spend so much time away from my family and my clients love my work, however, I just can’t seem to ask for more money – it’s like I feel bad. Ugh. I know I have to learn to justify my work. It would be nice to learn from the pros!

  84. Amy on June 17, 2010 at 9:38 am

    Our biggest pricing challenge, since we are new, is simply figuring out how to price prints. A local photographer enlightened me as to what she charges/ the industry standard is, but that seems a bit high for our proficiency level at this point.

  87. Jennie Good on June 17, 2010 at 9:40 am

    I am sure I have the same pricing issues as most people…too high and people won’t buy them….too low and I under price my talent! What to do!?!?

    My greatest pricing challenge deciding how much my time is worth and then sticking to that dollar value during projects and estimates. If I think a project is worth $500, but my estimate of my time to do the projects says $1000 based on my hourly rate, I have a hard time sticking to the hourly rate.

  117. mnr photography on June 17, 2010 at 9:52 am

    My biggest pricing challenge is sticking to my price and knowing my value. I immediately throw in a coupon to bring the session and print prices down after I quote someone.

  118. Terri on June 17, 2010 at 9:53 am

    My greatest pricing challenge is pricing too low. I worry that if I am too high they will go elsewhere but if I am too low one of two things happen. They will not book because they think my work is not good enough or they book and I don’t make a dime.

  119. Celesta on June 17, 2010 at 9:53 am

  121. Dawn on June 17, 2010 at 9:53 am

    My biggest pricing challenge is having the confidence to charge the right price (much higher than I charge now) without fearing that I will lose all my clients.

    oh so many things that i struggle with when it comes to price. i feel like i slid directly from portfolio building into business & have the same friends & friends of friends clients that i’ve always had (and that are absolutely wonderful!). but i really need to raise my prices & worry about alienating my current clients who have been nothing but wonderful…..pricing is so hard!

    My greatest pricing challenge involves other photographers as well. When another start-up photographer with a basic SLR comes in and charges $35 for a sitting it makes it a challenge for me! Make sure that if you are starting out that you price yourself accordingly and give a percentage off instead.

    The greatest pricing challenge is that I am so unsure of what to price. I know what it’s worth and what most people want to pay, and they don’t match up. The inevitable guilt sets in and I wonder if I am really worth what I am selling my work as!

    This is perfect because I’m just building my business now! I think that what’s been confusing is the different type of pricing stratagies. I’m in a small town and the few photographers that are here are all priced so differently. I think I can justify my prices in each stratagy but which would appeal more to the clients?

  139. Jen on June 17, 2010 at 10:04 am

    I’m still very much in planning stages, but worry that I will underprice at the beginning in order to get clients…who will then race away once I push prices up to a more appropriate setting. OR…that I will overprice and have no clients at all! Help!

  140. Natalie G. on June 17, 2010 at 10:05 am

    My biggest pricing challenge is not knowing where to begin (I’m pretty new to photography and VERY new to selling it) and believing my work is good enough to sell.

  159. Cathy R. on June 17, 2010 at 10:19 am

    My biggest objective with pricing is not knowing what my worth is. I feel that my price is right for me since it takes time to edit. I think that’s where I feel the price goes to, is my editing. I do things for free cause I feel that maybe I’m not worth what I ask but others who charge the same as I, get more shoots booked. I have yet to be paid.

  160. lizindsm on June 17, 2010 at 10:19 am

  167. Debbie Gibb on June 17, 2010 at 10:24 am

    My biggest pricing challenge is I don’t have one! I am just building my portfolio and having a website done. I love the idea of having someone walk me through this challenge. I have a Mentor who has told me several times, “You never have to struggle to figure this out, you can learn from the best, from their efforts and failures.” With that said, I have taken this advise seriously and have studied and learned from many of those who have already paved the path. I am amazed at all that I have learned and how quickly my talent has developed. It is exciting to know that Alicia has a formula that will work for me. Thank you for sharing. Debbie Gibb

  168. Morgan Kervin on June 17, 2010 at 10:24 am

  181. Jennilyn Proulx on June 17, 2010 at 10:34 am

    I feel the same as a lot of the previous comments, but I relate the most with Mike (comment #30). The friend issue! You want to give your friends a better price because they are your friends, but if they are the majority of your business now, how are you going to get off the ground if your business is new? This also reminds me of returning client discounts. A lot if people that use you time and again feel that maybe sometimes they deserve a pricing break because they are loyal. I don’t disagree, but how do we establish what is fair for the both of us?

  182. Aimee (aka Sandeewig) on June 17, 2010 at 10:34 am

    Package pricing is my biggest challenge, as well as low-balling my costs. I almost wonder if its easiest to charge a set fee, and then let the client apply a portion of it to their print order?!!

  195. Bob Wyatt on June 17, 2010 at 10:40 am

    My BIGGEST pricing challenge is just starting the process. As a new business I am slowly moving in this direction and after looking at pricing information available in area photogs work I am very confused. Several of them seem to be quite high for the quality of work and even more confusing are the ones that are dirt cheap and often as good as the high priced folks. I know enough to know that the low end folks do not value themselves at all and the high enders are crazy high!

  196. Heather M. Smith-Matthews on June 17, 2010 at 10:42 am

    My biggest problem is getting others to value my work monetarily speaking. Everyone says they love it, but few actually want to pAY for it! No matter what pricing I set or offer…once I give pricing, I never hear back from people. 🙁

  197. Daisy on June 17, 2010 at 10:43 am

    My greatest challenge is wanting to price ‘affordable’ so I don’t hear “wow you’re expensive” from friends, but also enough so that I make money and aren’t working for free.

  198. Bernadette Ulibarri on June 17, 2010 at 10:45 am

    My greatest pricing challenge is that I don’t want to set my prices too HIGH and turn away potential clients OR set the prices too LOW and sell myself short. I live in a pretty small community where most people live on a budget. I guess I can simply say…I am also having a hard time figuring out exactly what *I* am worth as a professional photographer! 🙂

  199. Patty Reiser on June 17, 2010 at 10:46 am

  200. Stephanie on June 17, 2010 at 10:47 am

    My biggest pricing challenge is finding that “magic” number. I need to be high enough to make my time away from my family worth it, and low enough to still get enough sessions. I also am having a hard time with collections.

  201. Ashley Gillett on June 17, 2010 at 10:49 am

    I have a really hard time determining how to best price packages vs. a la carte items. And I still can’t decide which strategy is best- letting clients pay a session fee and buy products separately, or packing the session fee WITH a set of products.

  210. Pamela S. on June 17, 2010 at 10:58 am

    My greatest pricing challenge as a business is to find the target market in my area who will value art and photography, and not just a cheap price. I am just starting out in the Portrait arena, using only natural light, after shooting weddings for a few years now. Trying contests and other social marketing to gain a portrait fan base on my Facebook fan page “Into Memories Photography.” This pricing guide would help me take my business to the next level, to be successful in doing what I LOVE!

  233. Ganell on June 17, 2010 at 11:15 am

    my pricing challenge – do I have to name just one! Well, I don’t always believe in my work! I see others that are so much better than me and think that they deserve to charge that much. Two, I am not an upperclass type person. I could never afford to go to an expensive photographer, nor was I ever raised that way. I am a working middle class person, and I have always catered to that. I think my biggest fear is losing the clients I have because I raise my prices.

    My biggest pricing problem is definitely the guilty feeling of “is my work really worth that much or anything at all for that matter?” and basically I feel like I have no idea what I am doing when it comes to business stuff.

    Biggest challenge – Keeping my mouth shut after stating the price.

  266. Lynn Stover on June 17, 2010 at 11:41 am

    I am just starting out so I am struggling with what to charge to get clients. Also I had a guy call me and want me to take some pics of him at work for a magazine and then take some pics of the lab and everyone working. He asked me what I would charge and I have no idea.

  267. Michelle on June 17, 2010 at 11:41 am

    Currently redoing my pricing and finding it all a little overwhelming. Am I charging enough? As a boutique business, what pricing strategy and product offerings will put me squarely in the client circles I want to circulate in???

  268. Hope H on June 17, 2010 at 11:42 am

  282. Gillian Ottaway on June 17, 2010 at 11:57 am

    My biggest challenge is pricing my digital files. All my clients want them, but I don’t think I’m charging enough!

  283. Sylvia on June 17, 2010 at 11:57 am

    Agggh! Sorry, left the post on the wrong part of the blog:)I love MCP blog post! Got that out, now for me, my biggest challenge is pricing sets. I charge differently for Senior portraits, family, pets and sometimes I have to recalculate. It is so frustrating when I talk to a client to explain pricing. Because I really don’t have a percentage I go by. I am not pulling prices out of a hat, but on the same note, I don’t know how to “value” my time, the Easy as Pie pricing would greatly help me.

  284. Lori K on June 17, 2010 at 11:58 am

    My greatest challenge is not even knowing where to start!

  285. Jennifer Stephens on June 17, 2010 at 11:59 am

    The greatest pricing challenge for my business is simply finding a pricing strategy that will cover my expenses and actually put me in the black at tax time! I am a relatively new business, and am having a difficult time with that so far. My packages are one way right now, but I am thinking of changing them, but I’m afraid of the effects it may have on my bookings. Pleeeease! I need this!

    My biggest challenge is being in such a tiny town that I cannot ask crazy high prices because the people here don’t see photography as an art. I am sick of defending my pricing (it is freakin low low low now!) to clients and I am the high end photographer in this area. UGH.

  303. Tana on June 17, 2010 at 12:10 pm

    My greatest pricing challenge is getting the courage to price high enough to make a good profit, but low enough to not scare everyone away.

    I honestly need help just knowing where to start with everything!

  305. Wani on June 17, 2010 at 12:13 pm

    PICK ME PICK ME! My greatest pricing challenge is figuring out i) how to price for the digital images particularly for low-res images and ii) if i’m better off focusing on prints instead of digital images. For example, I just shot my first engagement shoot and I charged US$200 for an hour session, which gave them 20 high res and low res images. But when it’s time to blog the session, I prefer to put up my favourite images as opposed to the ones the client chose, which means they can just download the low res images off my blog, which means I might as well give them all the low res images but then perhaps I should price accordingly. I’m sorry it’s so long but I’m just so confused!!! :-/ PLEASE PICK ME! 🙂

  307. April W on June 17, 2010 at 12:15 pm

  314. Mark OD on June 17, 2010 at 12:23 pm

    The greatest pricing challenge I have for my business is billing for extra time not realized for post processing, handling and delivery of the orders, and in some cases the paperwork involved. This is overlooked and rarely scheduled but in someway needs billed to the client.

  315. Stacey on June 17, 2010 at 12:25 pm

    Valuing myself and my efforts enough to charge what I should.

  316. Betina on June 17, 2010 at 12:27 pm

    I am just starting in the photography business. I’ve been doing family sessions for friends for about 3 years now for a token fee (basically covers my babysitter)… everyone loves the photos, raves about them. However, now that I am ready to start charging big girl prices… well… you can imagaine the hesitation on the part of the previously token paying friends. With new clients I feel comfortable charging fair prices, but the old faithfuls, the friends I’ve practiced with over these years? This is a challenge.

  317. sarah beth on June 17, 2010 at 12:29 pm

    my greatest challenge is determining my baseline pricing….and what to charge friends!

  320. Kirsti Fleming on June 17, 2010 at 12:31 pm

    My greatest challenge with pricing is friends/family who assume I’ll do it for free…

  321. Christa on June 17, 2010 at 12:33 pm

    Our greatest challenge is that we don’t want to sell ourselves short, but we also don’t want to over price and scare people away.

  322. marie on June 17, 2010 at 12:34 pm

    My biggest pricing challenge is putting together the different options and then feeling comfortable with my pricing and not second-guessing myself constantly, feeling like I’m priced too high (mostly) or too low (not so much).

  323. Haley on June 17, 2010 at 12:48 pm

    I have EAP and have found that it has made a big difference in both my bottom line and my confidence in my pricing structure. Would love a spoon full of sugar…My greatest pricing struggle is my collections.

  324. Chelsi on June 17, 2010 at 12:51 pm

    My greatest challenge in pricing is finding that “happy medium”. I just don’t want to cut myself short, but I also want my prices to be reasonable for my market. That’s what I’m having the hardest time working out. This would be an amazing gift to win!!

  332. Teresa on June 17, 2010 at 1:20 pm

    My greatest pricing challenge for my business is the city I live in. There are so many photographers working for peanuts with out experence. It makes me look like I am charging too much.

  341. Diane on June 17, 2010 at 1:40 pm

    what is my biggest pricing challenge? It seems like everything, but it probably boils down to setting a price that makes me comfortable sticking to when clients ask for discounts, which it seems they always do these days! Trying to get this business up and running, and feel nickle and dimed on everything! And how to not provide too many options that it gets confusing, but still be able to respond when someone says, well I want that one but with this font, and this color, and these different pics, but I don’t want to pay anymore even though it’s going to take you an hour to do all that….” I want customers to be totally thrilled with their product, but I don’t want to get rolled over in the process.

  342. Nicole Klingler on June 17, 2010 at 1:42 pm

    I think my greates pricing issue is: how can i price myself at what I’m worth, when many other photographers in my area are SO CHEAP!?! And how can i get past caring, and start valuing myself??

  343. Mariann Alexander on June 17, 2010 at 1:42 pm

    Pricing is so hard when your just starting out! When do I stop pricing to “build my portfolio”? How can I become confident and KNOW that I’m worth it?

  344. Kristen Werden on June 17, 2010 at 1:48 pm

    Biggest challenge: Finding customers that are willing to spend the kind of money I ask for from them. They compare me to retail chain portrait studios and find it difficult to spend more than they would for those products.

    I would say that everything about pricing is a challenge to me – I totally agree with those who said that they have a hard time not under-valuing their work. However, probably the hardest thing for me is selling my work. I can tell people all day about how awesome my new shark navigator vacuum is and how they absolutely have to go buy one, but when it comes to my own work, I don’t know what to say or how to say it!!

    My greatest challenge is just starting out how to find that balance. How do I balance pricing to attract more clients with trying to earn money. I have a decent portfolio but am always looking to add to it. I am struggling with the balance between session fee, minimum orders, and lingering orders…

  402. Shaylee on June 17, 2010 at 4:10 pm

    Making sure I’m pricing myself correctly and deciding if I want to do package pricing

    My biggest pricing challenge has been that I don’t have it my pricing set yet. I haven’t been able to find a happy place where I feel like I’m getting paid what I deserve and still have enough clients.I bought this the second I saw it because it looked like an answer to my prayers and all the stress I’ve been feeling lately about pricing! I bought it yesterday, I read it and LOVED it and its the first time I’ve felt like I can actually have my prices where I feel like I’m getting paid what I deserve! FINALLY! Someone that understands and tells me how to go for it. Thank you Alicia. I would LOVE to win your “Spoon Full Of Sugar” consult. If we win that, can we apply it toward a bigger consult? Just curious. Thank you!

  413. Cally Olson on June 17, 2010 at 4:25 pm

    Price too high loss clients. Price too low not receiving the type of clientele you want. Confidence in myself to explain why my prices as are. I know I want high clientele but how do I price for that and then explain, yes my prices are high, but with me you get XYZ and if I am too high for you that is ok.

  414. Terri on June 17, 2010 at 4:29 pm

    My biggest challenge is how to maximize an order without sounding too pushy!

  416. Beth P on June 17, 2010 at 4:58 pm

    I am very new and am having a hard time coming up with a fair pricing structure at all. I have simply been charging a flat rate for travel and sessions and I know I need to get out of that rut.

  417. Lisa on June 17, 2010 at 5:04 pm

    Thanks to Alicia, I feel confident about my pricing for portraits. Now I would love some help with pricing weddings.

  418. Shelley on June 17, 2010 at 5:06 pm

    My biggest challenge is I let people order too manyposes and not charge for all the retouching.

  419. Carolyn on June 17, 2010 at 5:06 pm

    My challenge is pricing in general. I’m just getting started with my photography business and not really sure how to set prices so I still make a profit without over charging.

  420. Jen Parker on June 17, 2010 at 5:09 pm

    Pricing needs to be set at what I’m worth instead of worrying what others can or can’t afford.

  462. Ashley on June 17, 2010 at 7:57 pm

    My greatest pricing challenge is to be confident in what I’ve set so when people call just to yell at me for NOT being $50 for the whole shabang type of photog, I do not need to apologize.

  463. Sam on June 17, 2010 at 8:05 pm

    Pricing has always been my downfall. I didn’t know what to charge or any good pricing theories so I just did the old well that sounds good! Terrible way I know! And because I’m not confident in my pricing I’m always negotiating – I think having a tool such as this will really help grow my business to where I want it to be 🙂

  464. Jen on June 17, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    I know that I am priced too low, but I can’t quite work out how to set higher prices AND find the people who are willing to pay those prices. I’m not part of my target market, and I’m finding it difficult to find a way in to that market. If I set my prices to properly compensate me for my time and effort and talent, then I certainly couldn’t afford me! And none of my friends nor my current clients could afford me either!

  472. Lori on June 17, 2010 at 8:53 pm

I want to be competitive in my pricing, but make sure that I am getting compensated for the amount of time that it takes to shoot and post process, plus figuring in the other costs involved.

    Where do I start? I’ve had a graphic design business for 19 years and 4 years ago added photography. (still don’t have a photography website up…) My greatest pricing challenge is probably packages vs. a la carte pricing. Every time I think I have it just right I start doubting myself and rework the whole thing. It’s horrible and needs to be fixed once and for all! I NEED to win this! 🙂

  510. Jen on June 17, 2010 at 10:27 pm

    My biggest challenge is asking friends/family who want me to do photos for them to hand over the money. The difference in people’s opinions on what photography is worth is hard to deal with, too. Some people tell me I’m not charging enough. Others get that look on their face like “you charge THAT for taking some pictures???” when I tell them a price. UGH!

I have a friend that has been helping me but I am at a TOTAL LOSS on the pricing. I don’t want to feel like I am getting over on a client or vice versa. My most recent experience as to why I so desperately NEED this information is 2 weeks ago I had a client want engagement pictures. Being my worst critic and underestimating myself I charged them $150. Since then they have decided they want to shoot in an additional location and assumed I would just charge them an additional $150, not so. To make a long story short I ended up eating some cost b/c I am new in this field and don’t want to make a bad name for myself as I am just starting out. I graduated 1 year ago this month and have no 9 to 5. I too am planning on homeschooling but as you know it is not cheap to furnish everything your child will need. OK I will stop this is getting wordy and I could keep going on about how I need this, so PLEASE CONSIDER ME!!! I NEED HELP!!!

    My biggest challenge… I don’t even know how to begin with pricing. I’d love to start freelancing both graphic design and the photography, I’m hoping this guide can help me with both.

    Biggest pricing challenge…..all of it really. My friends say my prices are too low, that I don’t think highly enough of my work. I’m just not sure how to price things.

  545. kerry macLeod on June 17, 2010 at 11:42 pm

    My biggest challenge is not giving customers a deal! I have set prices then always back down at the slightest hesitation. I am a wimp!

  552. Jennifer Tanner on June 18, 2010 at 12:39 am

    Pricing myself to make it worth my time away from my family! And not having people look at me like I am CRAZY when I tell them my prices!!

  553. Kelli Vander Veen on June 18, 2010 at 12:49 am

    I’m just starting out. I’ve been taking hundreds of pictures, adjusting them, having them printed and basically learning every single thing that I can about photography and loving every minute of it. I’m dying to do this for money, but the thought of actually pricing my time and photos sends me into a frenzy. I’m afraid I would be over or under, offer too much or not enough, there are a thousand things that I can think of that stop me from starting. I think I’ve become my own worst enemy.

  554. Rosemarie Songsong on June 18, 2010 at 1:03 am

    I would say pricing what my time is worth.I tweeted @rowz_e

  555. Erin on June 18, 2010 at 1:25 am

  557. Lauren Skousen on June 18, 2010 at 1:25 am

    My biggest pricing challenge is all if it! I don’t know how to price my sessions, prints, etc. I have a hard time deciding on the right price…I feel like I under price to make people happy! Then when I realize that my price mirrors my quality of work, I think of raising my prices. But, then it comes down to me not wanting people to think that I’m too expensive and to turn away from me because of it.

  558. Nina on June 18, 2010 at 1:37 am

    Want to be reasonably priced, but also want to be profitable.

  559. mariana herrera mosli on June 18, 2010 at 1:39 am

    My greatest pricing challenge is in the post-processing part of photography (the behind-the-scenes) Sure, you can charge a session fee, but what covers the endless hours of editing, prepping, and finalizing a session? How can you put a price on your time? :-)I am learning step-by-step and I hope Easy as Pie can help me!!

  560. Kelly on June 18, 2010 at 1:44 am

    I’m a military spouse so we’re always moving, on average every 6 months. By the time I build up my name I have to go. . . one of the thing I feel I HAVE to do in order to get my name out there is to run specials to get clients in the door. Even my regular non-special prices are low for the experience + quality I provide, but NO ONE will pay me my non-sales rate. If I don’t run sales, I get no business. I know my work is probably geared to more select customers, but I don’t have many options living the lifestyle I do. I feel I have to short myself to accommodate fellow Army families who usually do not have much money to spare. So what do I do? Charge very little or get no clients ever? HELP!

  572. Kelly Rooney on June 18, 2010 at 7:20 am

    Packages!! I’m just starting out and my website is brand new, I have not set up any pricing for weddings, seniors OR any packages of any kind because it literally gives me a headache! I LOVE what I do but am having so much trouble getting a business going because I don’t know how not to give in to the people who try to negotiate and talk me down when I feel like my prices already may be too low. Ugh!

  573. Tasha on June 18, 2010 at 7:25 am

    That’s a toughie but my greatest challenge is numbers. I’m terrible at math and sitting down to try and figure it all out myself is just painful. I have no idea where to begin, I start plucking numbers out of the air and then I get frustrated and quit because I know I’m not getting anywhere with it! It’s really frustrating when a potential clients asks about your prices and you have to hem and haw and look like a complete idiot that doesn’t know what she’s doing because you are grasping at numbers.

  574. Beth on June 18, 2010 at 8:03 am

    My biggest challenge is keeping myself competitive with all the other photographers in my area, seems like there are a ton!!

  575. Heidi Brand on June 18, 2010 at 8:23 am

    I think the biggest pricing challenge is to value your work, but still give clients value, when all they have been used to is chain stores for photography. I know I am not a chain photographer, but it is challenging to find the right price difference.

  576. velena on June 18, 2010 at 8:27 am

    My biggest pricing issue is what to include with the session fees and how to get clients to order more then just the minimum.

  577. sandee hoffman on June 18, 2010 at 8:39 am

    I find that customers desire personal attention and great customer service. Their expectations are high as they should be, but somehow it does not already translate into high sales. The norm is multiple backgrounds, locations, clothing changes etc. but when it’s time to order they seem overwhelmed. Like eating at a buffet, too much choice, and even I usually select something safe and familiar. They want it ALL when you are shooting, but after viewing their images, can be very selective when buying! Oh, let me add taking camera phone photos when you aren’t looking with their camera phones (just one for grandma)! Oh, rude!

  578. Nikki on June 18, 2010 at 8:48 am

    My greatest pricing challenge is charging what I think I’m worth.

  579. Kelly Ann on June 18, 2010 at 8:54 am

    I have a had time pricing canvas portraits. My thought is that if more people own them, more will want them, but people feel that there is too big of a gap between photographic paper and canvas wraps.

  589. Lindsay on June 18, 2010 at 9:35 am

    I just don’t know where to start…. I have base prices but sometimes I feel they are too low for the time I spend, and sometimes I feel that they are too high and no one will book me. I neeeed this!!!

    My biggest challenge is knowing the threshold for my area. There aren’t a lot of professional photographers in my area, but the ones that ARE here are fairly well-know and charge very little. And they are fairly competitive in nature as well. Where they are at is a good starting place, but definitely not enouch for me to maintain a full-time income doing the number of shoots/week that is reasonable for my circumstance. And starting there, how do I grow to where I need to be?
