Mrs Hutchinson didn't impress us at all. I feel like I could have taken better pictures myself of my kids and my family. There definitely was a disconnect with her. Like she just wasn't excited to be photographing us and didn't want to be there. Maybe she didn't but when your in the "customer service" business you fake it to make it. We were very disappointed with her lack of creativeness and detail. She gave us zero guidance and direction. We were unsure of how to pose and didn't even know when she was taking pictures and it really showed in the pictures. We were standing there smiling with forced smiles because we had no idea when she was taking her shot or not even smiling or looking at the camera because she said nothing. Maybe if she explained that she was going to take a bunch of shots and to just keep smileing and keep looking at the camera ok but she didn't. Or maybe if she was going for the "candid" shots. But she wasn't. We were genuinely excited to get out pictures taken. And this experience really disappointed us. We got a couple "good" pictures but nothing like the portfolio of beautiful pictures she has. To me every picture of my children and family is priceless. Whether good or bad. So we did purchase pictures of the ones I did kind of like. This is a real review. I would hate to see it removed like the old one I posted a few months ago. Samara is a wonderful photographer. Just take a look at her website and look at her work. You will be impressed I guarantee. A friend of ours used her and highly recommended her to us. So to say we were disappointed is an understatement. I don't know what happened that day. We are very nice people. We were very pleasant and friendly. Our children were well behaved. So I don't know what it was. I wish we could of had better results. I feel like she should of explained to us what she had in vision for our shoot and also asked us what we would of liked that day. I think the outcome would of been a lot better. I hate to be the one to write bad review but maybe Samara will learn a few things from this. Yes we could of complained and spoken to her and had a reshoot. But at the time I didn't want to. I feel like a reshoot would of been forced. The innocence of our first family photo shoot was lost.

Unfortunately, I have not had a client named Jessa and have to say that this is a false review. It saddens me to think that someone would be so malicious as to do something like this to me, and my business. If you truly were an upset client, I do wish you had reached out. I do wish that you weren't hiding behind a false name. I could have done so many things to make it right for you! Please contact me directly at and stop leaving these malicious attacks on the internet.
