Caitlin is our youngest child out of four. The oldest is thirty years old. Over the last 25 years, we have ordered all "class pictures", "athletic pictures", and "graduation pictures" - yet we simply could not afford the "minimal" package offered by "Lifetouch" for Caitlin's "senior picture". Their prices are way out of line. On top of the yearbook price and "formal page" we found that we simply could not afford these pictures. My husband and I are both retired and not making the money we were making when our older three were entering college.As a matter of fact, it was quite embarrassing when we were faced with the fact that Caitlin's pictures were "too expensive".
There is a photographer on Atlantic Ave. in Lynbrook who solved this problem for us - "Lors Photography" Alexis took many different shots, both in a graduation gown and a formal black drape. There was no $35.00 sitting fee, and the shoot was done so professionally with so much consideration to Caitlin. The supervisor, Darryl even came out of his office to greet us. I was completely shocked when they insisted that I not leave a deposit until the pictures are ready (2 to 3 weeks).
I honestly do not know why ERHS uses "Lifetouch" when a local photographer is actually half, if not a little more, the price.
Lors Photography does the pictures for Malverne Elmont, St. Francis Prep., the Mary Louis Academy and many other schools in our area.
The experience we had with Alexis and Darryl was extraordinary.
