This place is basically a meat market. They process clients like cattle and the quality is pitiful for what you pay. I showed up on time. No one greets you at the door. A teenager finally "processed us" after 15 minutes. I used a small bathroom to change small 2 girls into dresses. Then I was instructed to "go downstairs" where Sundra Paul never acknowledged me. She just began taking pictures like a "robotron". She took 12 photos then said "alright girls - Santa's leaving". The teenager then ushers you upstairs to review photos - where someone will try to "sell you a $550 package". This doesn't include Santas sitting fee. 3 weeks later, I received a call telling me the photos were ready. They provide no option to mail the photos so I had to travel a total of 180 miles in 2 trips. She doesn't process her own images - instead opting to send the images to a mass editing service. She also uses Animoto to "create" a horribly fast paced DVD Slideshow that ends abruptly after displaying 12 blurry photos where one or both of my children had their eyes closed. Total time waiting for instructions - or "waiting to be sold": 50 min Total time with photographer: < 15 min Sundra Paul advertises her business as "Fine Art Photography". The truth is - the whole experience made me feel like I was at Walmart. Save your money. Bypass this business. Use a different photographer.
