When I posted the sneak peak and/or their online gallery of my last two sessions(one maternity, one family), they (the women) were able to nit pic and find something in about half the photos that they wanted fixed/edited/removed/liquified. With one, she wanted her face and thighs thinned out. I did it to two of them becase doing it to the rest she looked weird. She took one of the pics off facebook and used it as her profile pic, which I don't mind at all, but she cropped out the watermark. And she did the same to the rest of the photos that were in the album. I had to put up a friendly reminder status that if you use a photo to leave the watermark intact. She asked me to take down one pic because of the thighs issue. In my frustration with her, I simply took down all but 2 she and some others had commented on. I couldn't take it anymore :bigangry: Then she asks me "where'd the other pictures go, lol". I'm not LOL'ing.
This last one, maternity, was very meticulous in her CC of the photos for me. She asked for small fixes, which i can do and then asked me to replace 3 of them all together simply because she didn't like them. One of them, I'm staring at and dont know what it is she doesn't like because it truly is a lovely picture.
I get the whole customer service thing for paying client, but man, how far do I have to bend? I can't re-edit all, and they're not images that warrent a re-shoot. These two have made me want to pull my hair right out. I know we're alsways more critical of ourselves in photos and I know it's my job as their photographer to produce the best images for them so they're happy with what they see but it seems like i have failed in that respect for these two. Its a bit defeating. I have meant to post some of the family session for CC and haven't gotten around to it.
ok, i needed to vent because i felt slighty hurt in all this. *sigh* Thanks for listening.
