We waited 45 minutes even though we had an appointment. They charged us a sitting fee even though the Groupon didn't say there would be one. The photographer didn't demonstrate any creativity. We had to arrange our own photos.

Some of the pictures were blurry. I commented on that when we were picking them out and she said I was tired and they were small. The main picture of my granddaughter is very blurry and when it is on the large picture with her brother it is very pronounced because his is clear as a bell. You need to allow more time for people to pick out pictures since the packages get so nit picky and you are feeling rushed because other people are waiting so you really can't concentrate...A very disappointing experience.

I had to wait 1 hr after my appointment to be seen for my pictures. That was crazy just crazy.

Facility was terribly hot and quite cramped for our basic family of 4. Space to view/select the photos that were taken was also inadequate/small/cramped. Staff were nice and tried hard to make things work with what they had though.

I had my son's 16 month pictures done. The photographer was awesome with him and the pictures were fantastic!

From Our Editors

Armed with an army of innovative and certified shutterbugs, Olan Mills Portrait Studio provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to recreate look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea-battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.
