My daughter just turned five, so I took her to a portrait studio by me to get her photos taken. Well, I get the photos and guess what????????????????? There is a red background behind her AND they did not pull it all of the way over so now I have a nice blue background on one edge. I paid almost $200.00 for these photos. I am not happy to say the least. I am not the type of person to complain, but they really look unprofessional. I understand mistakes do happen, but they should see that I want to fix it, not just give them to you. If I only knew how to do all of this myself! I would save time and headache

Any professional should atleast offer to take your pictures over correctly. After all word of mouth is the best advertising possible.
It won't be long before you will be taking all your portraits yourself.
I think most of us will remember your situation and check the background before we snap the photo.

I would take the pictures back to the stuido and ask them what they think? Perhaps they will offer to redo them for you. If they don't like arrowind says, word of mouth is the best advertising possible, perhaps they should be reminded of this.
I do hope you get it sorted out as I'm sure you're very dissapointed with the image. Surly the photographer would have noticed this before passing the finished product on. Is it a professional outfit?

Yes it is. That is what is so amazing. It is a top name studio.
why are you taking her to a pro studio.
you should do them yourself.
im sure you would get better more relaxed shots and its good practise

Just think, once you have finished this course, you could take some pictures, frame them and then take them back to the studio and ask for a job as you will obviously be able to do a better job than the people there now.
It does remind me of a place near to where I live actually, I wont mention the name, but I know of quite a few people who have been there and are far from satisfied with the work. How do places like this manage to stay in business?
One of my main fears, if I do eventually go into wedding photograhpy etc would be getting it wrong and spoiling the photograph, you only have one opportunity and you have to get it right. My confidence will have to be a whole lot stronger before I go into anything like that.
