Tomorrow the Eldest is having her Senior portraits taken. She will be draped [tuxes for the guys] and in her cap and gown. We also have the option of casual shots too.
Here is the ruse, tho'. We have to pay [at minimum] a $30.00 sitting fee. This is to take the pics - no problem if I was going to purchase from this company. I do understand sitting fees. My problem is if you DON'T use this company your child's picture will not be in the yearbook.
Why do I have to pay $30.00 to assure my daughter is going to be in a yearbook I will then pay $100.00 for later this year?
Does that seem fair? I think there should be an option for parents that just want the drape/cap and gown in the yearbook that doesn't cost a penny. Don't the upcoming Seniors have a right to be in the yearbook for free?
Someone correct me if I am wrong about this, but seriously? It just feels like extortion.
