Re: how do i decide what to charge a client???

ok lets start with i have an external flash plenty of lenses, amongst other equipment. this shoot is for an acquaintance . they dont have hundreds of dollars to spend on a photographer as they are having a baby . i have the equipment to get the job done, this isnt that type of professional shoot where im needing insurance im not at that level yet im more of doing this as a favor and to help me build my portfolio with some new pictures ive yet to take. with that being said...i didnt want to do it for free, because i feel my time is worth money ...especially PP. so im going to attend as a favor , roughly 3 hrs, a cd of all photos, 30 or so edited photos, and prints to be paid for by the client at her request. so for my time of 3 hrs, services rendered, what is a fair price for both parties?
