I’m glad we didn’t cancel. I was exhausted with my kiddos, just getting dressed. Great experience and we got a few nice pictures!

The experience of the session was fine. My ten month daughter did not seem to be on mood for the session but the photographer was good with her. She managed to get few good pics. We got extra photos printed to 8*10 photos but they did not do any photo enhancements though I saw she added the cost in our bill. By enhancements I mean simple brightening of photo and nothing fancy. When we put these photos in frames, it clearly looks very dull and my friends actually thought we got casual phone clicked photos printed:( disappointed with this. We wanted to buy extra services from them but now not so sure if we will get any.

Went in for family Christmas photos. The photographer basically just snapped the pictures. Our poses were aweful, the centering was horrible, she didn’t engage my young children to smile at all. I was disappointed. I could’ve just gone to a park and asked a stranger to take a picture and it probably would’ve been better.

Our Picture People is inside Sears at Oakridge Mall in San Jose. We arrived 10 minutes early and didn't have to wait. They took our 3 boys in (ages 5, 11, 12) for their shoot and we stayed out so the photographer could do her job and she did not disappoint, awesome pictures. We purchased the package with the Holiday cards and gift tags and they were so cute! Another large family came in while we were waiting for our prints and overtook the lobby and the associates, we politely said we'd return the next day for our prints because they suddenly had their hands full. They are professional and polite and if you tell them something specific you'd like for a shot they do it. ALWAYS EXCELLENT ALWAYS SUPER. This time I didn't spend more because we really just wanted the cards, so our total cost was $3 for the tax. But please know you have to pay for tax (another client was yelling at them about that) and it says so in the terms of use. Be kind to these folks, they are recording your memories.

The camera girl was super helpful with my 4.5 year old and captured pictures that I could never get. Great customer service at this location.

They just make it easy and stress free, even with a toddler who didn't want to sit still for even one picture, we still walked away with over 20 super pictures.

Our son's pictures turned out great! She was really good with our son and patient. I wish I had her name because she was very cheerful and very creative. She was a young Caucasian lady with MOD at the bottom of her name on her badge. I would recommend this place to my family and friends

The staff is no patience. My baby cried and they look angry. Never choose it again.
