Newborn Photo War (Vent)

I had photos done of Mylze when he was almost a month old. Where his arrival was a surprise, my newborn shoot was delayed. Here I am, 6 months later, and I have seen nothing of what I paid for, and it is really irking me. She keeps telling me she sent the CD, and I even gave her my email so she could just send me digital copies and NOTHING!! I am furious! I just want the pictures of my little boy that I spent $100 on, most of it being his shower money, drove 2 1/2 hours to have done, and she won't give them to me... She has shown me a couple as she was editing them over Facebook, that was all I got, though.

    If she has a public Facebook page for her business I would post there. Post nicely letting her know that you paid for and never received your photos and after multiple emails you are really upset and disappointed. Hopefully she will do the right thing, especially with other people looking on her public business page. Good luck!

      Oh my. Is this an independent photographer? I don't get why she doesn't just send you another copy of the DVD or even the digital version via email. Something doesn't seem right. Does she have an online presence? I know it's underhanded but as a last resort I would threaten to give her a bad review based on your experience if she doesn't give you your photos.

      She is, I'm not sure why she hasn't either. She was having some medical issues shortly after she told me she sent one out, so I brushed it off as it may have got lost in the mail, then she said she sent me another. I think I am going to tell her I'll give her a bad review if she doesn't. She also has been using my son's photo as a business cover on her page, and I told her I wanted it removed because I never signed a release. It has just been a nightmare trying to get her to let me help her or to work with me.

      Does she have your correct address? Have you sent her your address again just to be sure?

      I can't believe she is using your photo without your permission. Were you one of her first clients?

          I had the same problem with my sons photos. The photographer was a friend of my sister and my sister had Tristen's pictures done for my birthday...the lady couldn't do them until the month later which was fine. That was October, after months of tesxts, phone calls, emails, comments on Facebook, and having my son plastered all over Facebook...I FINALLY got an email of the pictures in June...even though I was promised a cd. Needless to say I will never use THAT photographer again! We had to threaten our photographer that we would sue and the next day we had our photos.
