Here is our free little image! Its not a really good photo of the photo but no matter what angle I did it at, it just kept reflecting.
Our appointment to view the photos was actually last week but I forgot to go. I was dreading the day so much that somehow I must have made myself forget about it. Anyway, I went for the 2nd appointment yesterday and am completely guilt free. The photographer was extremely nice. The first thing she said after laying out the photos was about the free one before even mentioning the prices she had for the package. I have to admit that I had it in my head to at least purchase a smaller photo for $20, IF there was such a thing (which there wasn't) but there was no need to. She didn't hover or try to push us into buying.
In the end, I told the truth. Aaron wasn't in a good mood the day we went for the sitting and there was only a single smiling shot of him. So I just explained that I was looking for more smiley photos and she was so understanding. This made me feel so much better. She gave me another voucher to come back any time in the future if we wanted to try it again. This is the way to be a good business person. Don't push it, be nice and people will come. If I ever decide that I want to pay for some professional photos, I'd think of her first.
