They were very pleasant and did not do any hard sales. She could market her products a little more if she wanted.

I loved Sweet Light Studio. Allison was great! She was so good with our 6 month old, and captured some amazing images. I am so excited about the pictures.

I would recommend this photographer but not for a Groupon session. I'm thinking we got a different experience with a coupon (hopefully). I am writing this with the understanding that this is going just to Sweet Light Studio and not a public review. I don't have any interest in giving a public negative review because it might be my expectations are not appropriate - lending to more disappointment. I didn't know what to expect and would have liked a brief intro when we arrived or a five minute conversation on the phone before. I wasn't sure what exactly we should do - act naturally, pose, smile, try to get the kids to smile (or not), probably follow her lead - but that wasn't clear and on my mind the whole time. I realize we were with kids and I must say she is absolutely fantastic with kids and she jumped right into interacting with them. This is the main reason I would recommend her. She knew exactly what to do with them to make them feel comfortable. I wish there was more attention to detail in the photographs. I stepped in a few times but I wasn't sure if I should and held back a bit. I thought this should have been from the eye of the artist. For example - move over just a bit there is a tree growing out of your head (the tallest person) from the back ground. I know this is not a Lifetouch portrait (which I don't like) but there were just some things that seamed like quick fixes and obvious to me. And this is why I am assuming the photo shoot would have been different if we paid full price (not that it should be that way). I think it should have been a chance to show us (me) that this was really worth the investment. I could choose 10 photographs and it was actually hard as I really only liked a few of them. Maybe I am being too picky. I wanted both girls in focus, I wanted their dolls we brought more in view, I didn't like all the squinting outside, or a lot of the compositions. I wanted a good shot(s) of the two girls and a great one of the family. I didn't want any of my husband and I (which I kind of expressed - not to seam unloving towards my husband) and didn't need any of the girls individually. I felt we wasted time on this. (This is why I used a Groupon. Not because I do not value professional photographers time, skill and talent but because I didn't know what to expect from a professional photo shoot. I felt things were rushed and after noticed the time and we were there for 40 minutes total for an hour long shoot with extra paid for outside shots. I do love a lot of the photos on her blog/portfolio and have a few shots that I like (not love). So possibly an excellent experience for someone else.

We were very happy with our photo session. Even my husband felt at ease and was pleased with the whole experience -- and that is not his typical reaction to our annual family photoshoot.
