I actually didn't have a complaint but when I read my receipt it told me to go to the www.tellpictureme.com website to do a survey to receive a free offer and the website doesn't even exist.

    I had the same problem.I took my kids in & had their photos done. My receipt also said the same thing about the free offer & it's true.The website does not exist! I just wonder why they even put that on there?

    I did the website thing also and no it don't work. When I called them and asked them why it's on there if the website doesn't exist the lady told me that, It used to before the studio went digital. I don't know if I believe that or not because when she was asked she hesitated with the answer. But we will get it back eventually. So do i get to use that receipt when it does? Of course not, she says.
    I do have a complaint about the employees in the studio at Walmart in Desoto Missouri though. They were very pushy, atleast the manager was. The guy that was showing me the pictures couldn't even do his job because of her. I was very dis pleased with her. I wish I would have gotten her name. I went on june 12th 2008 at 2 o'clock. She was nice to me but as i watched her looks and whispering into the guys ear telling him to get on with it, I could tell she was a fake.

    I agree about the web-site however I also has a complaint---in this day and age why do I have to wait for over 3 weeks to get my pictures. I had my grandkids pictures taken Sunday 6-15 at the Wal-Mart in Stephenville. Monika was really great with the kids and got some good pictures, but then she told me it would by 7-9 before I could pick them up! I would believe that 20 years ago when my kids were little, but not in todays society!!! Is there anyway to getting a little sooner!!! I spent over 200.00 to do these pictures.

    I was really not happy with my session today with my grandchildren.They are 2 and 5 yrs old, as you know hard to keep still, I wasn't happy with the fact that I DON'T get to pick my picture package.I have never heard of this practice of the 1st shot is your package.Thats not fair when it could take more shots to get a good picture espically with young children. The picture that was acceptable(10) I had to buy extra, now I know this is business but I come to your studio at least 2 to 3 times a year with my grandchildren for pictures and I'm not going to get pictures I really don"t want.

    I went to pick up my pictures on the date that was printed on my receipt and no one was even working there during the hours posted. This occured several times over two days. I tried calling the number listed on my receipt and no one answered the phone. There wasn't even a recording to leave a message.

    I took my grandson in to the studio in Roanoke, VA. on Rt. 460. The man was extremely rude. He didn't want to discuss the special being run. He lied about what size and quantity pictures come with the special. He acted as if he didn't have time for us. Next time I'll try Sears or Penneys.

    I really enjoyed taking my newborn daughter to this studio. The photographer took good pictures and the baby cooperated the whole time she was a perfect sleeping angel and the pictures looked good.

    There is no free offer like it says on the receipt. I had a very good experience with a very nice lady at Wal-Mart in North Canton, Ohio. She gave up her break to fit my grandson in so I could get his pictures taken. Although the first pictures, my special package were not my favorite, I did purchase others I was very happy with and there was no pressure to purchase any more pictures.

    I took my 6 month daughter into the crawfordsville indiana picture me studio and had her portraits taken and Joanne Ritchey was the photographer/manager and I just want to say she did a excellent job and was very good with my baby and the pictures turned out awesome!!! I will definately go back to her again!! You need to have more employees like Joanne. I was very pleased.

    I had my grandsons pictures taken today at the picture me studio in wal-mart in Erie, PA. I was very displeased with the experience and definitely will not return. The photographer seemed unsure as to how to pose the 2 boys ages 7 and 11. I was not happy with the new system, the packets or the pictures. I paid $73.12 for pictures that neither my husband nor I are really happy with. He kept trying to get us to purchase the bigger packet stating that perhaps the parents could pay for half. This studio is not the only one in town and I will surely look for a different studio when I go to have the pictures taken again.

    I totally agree about there being no site for a survey to get a free offer! I would have thought that it was just me if I hadn't read so many other complaints about the same thing. Per complaints above - one employee told a customer that they didn't have that offer anymore since they went digital - well then it shouldn't have been on the receipt, the salesperson shouldn't have mentioned it, and they shouldn't have even highlighted it on the receipt!
    Overall my experience was okay - have had better. My daughter did get her picture taken finally, which I'm totally thrilled about - stubborn thing! (She's now 3 years old and the last one was taken when she was like 9 months or so). Darlene the photographer was okay, but she did take us as a walk-in that went into her lunch break and still didn't seem at all pushy or irritated.

    My complaint is the same, there is not a website for free offers. The women in the studio, Marshall, TX were very kind and very good with my granddaughters while taking their pictures on the 9th of July 08 and I was very surprised when I got a phone call yesterday the 15th to let me know that the pictures were ready to pick up, I think that was one of the fastest times that I have ever received my pictures. Again I think this false advertisement and they need to do something about the website printed at the bottom of the receipt.
