    I just started a business and need advice about pricing of the prints. Can anyone give recommendations on good places to order prints from and how much do you charge? Also, what kind of packages do you put together? So far I am doing family photos, senior photos, and maternity/baby.
    Any advice is appreciated!

    Smugmug.com seems to be a popular online place to store/order prints

    As for pricing, it is very area dependant. Someone here could charge $600 for something while in your area it might be $300 and in another it might be $750.

    I'd suggest looking up local photographers websites and see what the competition is charging in your area and base your prices off of that.

    For prints you should check out mpix.com and whcc.com. Both do a pretty good job. I prefer mpix though. Pricing, as the previous poster pointed out, is specific to the area and what the market will tolerate. Check w/ local photogs and their pricing and then price similarly.
