Can't Afford Custom Photography - Advice

The economy isn't a friendly place these days. I've been following the Occupy movement with awe and admiration for those who take the time to stand up against the 1%. Having had my little guy in the hospital last week with septicemia (blood infection) from a tooth abscess, no dental insurance and a $5,000 deductible on our health insurance, we're now sitting on $8,000 worth of medical and dental bills. (Huge thanks to everyone using us for your photography needs and referring us to others; we would not be eating without you!)

So, i totally get wanting custom photography but not having a spot in the budget to have it. A friend recently found herself in that situation, and so went with a fauxtog (or MWAC-Mom With A Camera) for a couple hundred bucks and a disc of underexposed, grainy photos that left one son off to the side like an afterthought, not to mention the wall peeking out from one side of the backdrop. People, don't do that. Just go to WalMart's studio or Target's or whatever other cheap department store studio you can find. That way, you have a better chance of at least having properly exposed photos, and you'll only be paying $20 for them. Then, save up for nice, custom photography to have done later.
