I went to get my 2 year old daughter's Christmas picture taken and was extremely frustrated and dissappointed with the studio. My appointment time was 4:20 and was not taken into the session until 5:00. The photographer lacked any kind of energy to get my daughter motivated to take the picture. With a 2 year old you need some level of motivation. She was helpful in suggesting a background but that was about it. I went in to the session saying to her that I am not very picky and would love her to take some creative liberty with poses etc. We got about 7 images of my daughter sitting on a bench and then I suggested a couple of props. We got about 15 pictures total. At the end of the photography session I was able to view the pictures after about 20 minutes of waiting for someone to help me. I was so dissappointed with what they showed me that I left. I went home and realized that I didn't have many other options in terms of Christmas cards so I HAD to go with something she took. My daughter has been sick and while I was planning to get these done before Thanksgiving, her health did not allow. So I went back to the store around 8 that night and finally left with my cards round 9:30.

As someone who has worked in an extremely busy retail establishment, the way that store is run is extremely poor. When I returned at 8pm, the the same people who had appointment times around the same time as I did were still there choosing photos and waiting for printing. At this point there were only 2 people working and 7 customers viewing photos and waiting to order. I was told earlier that they were down 2 photographers that day but that is not really an excuse. They could have called to reschedule some appointments. I would have much rather waited an extra couple of days to get my photos done than waited with a then-cranky toddler. There seemed to be no management, the attitude of the employees was extremely poor (huffing and rolling their eyes when you asked for help) and the overall experience was dreadful. Honestly, I can't blame them. If I were working there, I would have quit and walked out.

Additionally, I think the whole experience would have been better if I could have gone home, viewed and played around with the photos online and ordered prints and cards online. I was not able to collaborate with my husband who was working and by the time I got the attention of a salesperson to actually place and order I felt too rushed and received snotty attitude that all I wanted to do was get the cards and get out of there. I didn't end up ordering prints for family members as I had planned.

They do a very good job even with small babies. They are quite understanding about small babies and work with them to get the best pose. You sometimes get coupons for free portraits which is a money saver.
