Portrait Innovations - Poor Experience; Not Kid Friendly
Photography - Complaint
COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS -- We went to the College Station, TX location to take my photos of my 2 year old & 3 month old daughters. It was one of the worst experiences imaginable!
Our 2 year old is very typical for her age; curious about her surroundings & can be difficult to pin her down for some great shots. The girls taking the photos had no idea how to get her attention & when she did cooperate, they did not have the camera ready! Things were a little better with the baby, but she can't move much!
The backgrounds and props they chose were pretty awful with their outfits. They even tried to make the 2 year old sit still on a 4 foot high backless stool. Needless to say, that did not happen!
I was also disappointed with the picture selection process. They kept trying to push extra products on me that I kept saying I did not want. The coupon code we had from the Internet would not work. Lastly, the pictures did not come out well. There were some major defects that I could not see on the computer screen when choosing the poses that showed up in print (a huge snot bubble was one of them). The lighting in the photos was also poor.
Honestly, I had better success with Walmart photos, but the studio here closed recently. Guess we will be driving to Houston or pay a lot more at a better local studio next time... :(
