I'm looking for the same thing. Just we're a family of 6 and are ok with taking it in a park, pretty backyard, etc. We spoke to one person and the sitting fee alone was $200. Then you had to pay another $200 for a cd with some pics on it. Seems pretty crazy to me when JC Penny, Portrait People, etc charge less than $50 total (plus there are always deals and groupons to bring the price down even more). But maybe that is the price. Any advice is much appreciated.

$400 seems pretty high, Id shop around. But you are not going to get someone to come take pictures of your family for under $100, probably not under $200 either. Portrait people is different as you go to them and you are getting decent pictures but a good photographer that goes outdoors with you can get phenomenal pictures.

There's a photographer in the area currently running a promotion. Her prices are generally the same as everyone else's. Promo is $125 for a session including all digital images. PM me for info
I wasn't going to say anything because she happens to be a relative of mine and I don't advertise here but I think it'll be helpful for some of you.

Who are the geniuses that pump money into these places?

You can ask that about any restaurant. If so many fail, why do people still try?

3 partners, They already own a successful place and have been int eh industry for a while now. Menu looks good so lets see what happens. As long as they come out of the gate consistent, they should be OK.

How long does a place have to be popping for the owners to recover their investment?

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.
