Default Photographing 21st Birthday Party

I need your help everybody.... I have been doing photography for the past few years but it's only been very strong interest/hobby of mine . I have done few birthday parties for friends and other special occasions like christenings but only for friends and family. Only today I have been asked if I would like to photograph 21 Birthday party (girl's partner want to get photographer for the party as a surprise). If somebody can help me with the pricing it would be great. Only information I have been given is that they want photographer for 3 hours and want me to make 3 different packages for them. One of them they want about 70-100 photos presented in an album and other packages they want more photos and few enlargements. If you have any idea for me to how to present this information I will appreciate it.

Also I weill mention that I own 400d canon (twin kit lenses, 480ex and a 50mm 1.8) and an olympus E-410.

Please be kind and help me out with this one. Thanks a lot

Let me first recommend you to get a better zoom. Tamron 17-50 shouldn't break the budget and is nice and fast.

Can look into it but I can get it as quick as I would like it unfortunately. I am not on my computer at the moment so I can't send you any of my work with the lenses I got. I will try and post some photos in a few days time.

The lenses you have should be fine, especially since you'll be shooting flash anyway (from the looks of it). Not really sure what the going rate for birthday photography is, haven't really heard of anyone doing it before.
