Glamour Shots - I was taken advantage of & went in debt 1,00.00 for a few pictures of my daughter & me
I wanted to get some pretty pictures of my daughter and a couple of me & her together.I seen a groupon promotion for $19.95 for 3 wardrobe changes & 40-50 shots & 1 8x10.
I printed 2 out because there was 2 of us. I told the woman that answered the phone. that I wanted mostly pictures of my daughter & a couple of us together. We got an apt.
fairly quick and went and had a pretty good time. photographer was great, hair stylist and make-up girls were very friendly. after all pictures were done we waited for them to be ready to view and pick ones we may want. it was the end of their business day so everyone else in store had gone home for the day.
I was offered the choice of 3 packages. lowest price being 350.00. I was not offered any other options. I picked out a 8x10 of me & daughter together.
an 8x10 of just her. the packages he offered also came with a couple 5x7's and disk with all original pictures on it. total for these was $1,177.88 that was credit extended to me and said I could pay in 2 payments.
I later found out there were other options for the picture packages that I was never told about. we also got charged for each of us separately, not as a family together as it should have been.
We had a good time & all the pictures of my daughter were great. I had asked for mine to be only from chest up as I was just to big as I felt to like to see all of me. but the photographer insisted on the full body poses. I think that going in debt $ 1,177.88 for a few pictures is completely ridiculous.
then I found out that the balance for them pictures was put on a credit card that they had me sign and open. I have no credit cards and do not owe any money other than my home mortgage and I never would have opened a credit card account to pay for some cotton picking pictures. I did not need the copyrights to these darn things either. that option was never even mentioned to me.
I feel really taken advantage of and ripped off. Why did I not ask questions and find out more options? I had a really bad car accident a couple years ago where I hit a tree, broke many bones and received a TBI (traumatic brain injury) where I have had to learn how to walk all over again just as a baby learns to walk for the first time. so I do not think very well on the spot.
things have gotten a bit slower for me since then. I feel I and everyone should be giving ALL the options for buying their pictures, then choose.
I do not need and do not want the copyrights to them either.why was I not given that option?????????????
