Picture Day Is Coming, Anybody Else Feel Like They Take Shitty Pictures On Purpose, To Guarantee Retakes?
Seriously, Quality is night and day, EVERY year! I remember it from childhood too. No matter what I did, the picture was crappy on Picture day…. but turned out great on retake day.
I am not the only one that has noticed this. My Mom noticed it too, back in the day. I remember her actually coming to school for picture day one year, to make sure it turned out good. Magic! with my Mom in the photographers ear, the picture turned out just fine… go figure.
So I am taking a page out of my Mom’s playbook this year. I am going to school on picture day. I am going to make it very clear, that I am not going to pay in advance for a picture I am unhappy with. I will either be allowed to observe the session, or they can have their money after I see the pics.
I am a customer, not a hostage. I will pay, for a good picture. If the picture is a fail, it is the photographers fault, not the kid. They are Professional Children’s Photographers. They should take pride in their work, not set their customers up for a double whammy. If I am disatisfied with the service I have been provided, I am not obligated to pay for it. I am notrequired to pay for their mistakes. I am going to make this crystal clear.
Anybody else feel like this?
