    Default When did Santa photos get so expensive??

    Really?? $20 for a single photo?
    While we dont make a big deal of santa in our house, if the kids see him in the shops they want to get a photo.
    We have done the last couple of years.

    But really, when did they get so expensive??

    We are on a budget this year and it just seems excessive.

    I wouldnt pay to get them done while my kids are young but we were at our local shopping centre yesterday and they were doing free photos so we got them done. I think Its a way for some malls/shopping centres to bring people in so maybe look out for something like that. If you have fb maybe ask in the bss sites We pick ours up today from Camera house and if Its not the greatest photo oh well it was free

    Also the set up was lovely and the Santa was awesome

    If anyone is interested & in the area Orion Springfield have set up a beautiful 'Santa's workshop' & you get a free photo

    Some are so darned expensive. I wanted to get cards made, but they're around $50 for about 6 cards!?! (That was through a company that's at mount ommaney)

    Hey Loislane, there are free photos at Cockburn gateways shopping centre but I think you're NOR? Maybe try your local shopping centre as I've heard of a few other places doing then as well. Harvey Norman on weekends??
