    Photographers Hindered by Company's Rules

    The photographers themselves are talented, no doubt. However, the excessively rigid guidelines imposed by the company hinder their ability to deliver their best work. Working with babies and small children demands flexibility and a willingness to adapt plans. Unfortunately, Life365 insists on a specific list of shots, risking consequences if deviated. The company appears indifferent whether these mandated shots align with the customer's preferences or the child's comfort. The impractical rules, attempting to coerce our toddler into unwilling poses, thwarted our efforts to capture the desired quantity of shots. We will fulfill the remaining sessions from our purchased package and then part ways with Life365.

    Keep Your Money and Run!!!

    My wife and I have been a "VIP Member" for the past few years - Just a fancy way of saying we pay over $100 per year to have a photoshoot. Here are the RED FLAGS - read and decide if you want to do business with this company:

    - There is NO business number listed anywhere - and if there is - good luck having them contact you back - they'll tell you to e-mail their customer service e-mail 1st - then you a receive an automated response telling you that they'll contact you in 48 hours. What kind of VIP service treats their members like "drop your card in a fish bowl and you're lucky if we call you back". If they don't want to talk to you - they won't.
    - The rep tells me they're under new management - which is fine - tells me they don't book until 5 weeks out - said they'd call me on a specific date and time to book in our shooting date....did they call? Haha..Nope! I had to contact them, left a message, and finally received an e-mail from them 2 days later that said they don't have any photographers in my area. I live in DALLAS, TEXAS (population of 1,288,457) - and you're telling me there's not 1 photographer here? WTF?!!!
    - I obviously asked for a refund for the yearly VIP membership b/c they couldn't service me, there's no photographer in my area, and it is not possible to have my photoshoot b/c of all this. I get a response saying they've cancelled my membership but there are "no refunds on VIP plans. All of your earned loyalty rewards will remain available for you to use in the future". REALLY?!!!

    My advice - there are millions of better photographers and companies to work with out there. Don't waste your money or time with this company. Take your money and Run!!!

    I've never had to write a bad review on Google and this is my 1st one. At this point - the new owners might as well close the company and re-open with a new company name.

    The angles were terrible

    I loved my photographer's personality. I don't know his name, but his photos are average. It would have been easy to take them myself. The angles were terrible. The cost was insane! Danielle worked with us to provide us with the most affordable option for those that were nice. My cousin takes photos, and I would have made a payment, but I didn't.

    It was very unprofessional

    The company called my wife and said the representative who was at the hospital said we wanted to see pictures. However, we didn't; therefore, we informed the company they called was not true and proceeded to end the call. It was very unprofessional. I hope the person who called is blessed! If I had the chance, I'd use ZERO scores.

    The company is a total disaster. Not knowing how to contact anyone at their contact numbers is ineffective. You may send them an email, but nobody ever replies.

    Fuzzy and dark

    I've been a loyal customer since the year 2017. Recently, I was disappointed. The photos they sent me and those that looked fuzzy and dark were not touched up. There was a grey box over my pictures, which weren't exactly the size I expected. My rep has called me and also the company many times. They've been deaf to my calls and messages.

    Avoid using

    It has been a while since I received my photos from December. I am not able to contact them. No one returns calls or replies to emails. Avoid using them. I think that I will have to bring it before the courts.

    This is very unprofessional and takes advantage of new mothers.

    It was not worth it. The photographers were great. However, they scared my son, and the photos turned out horribly. The lighting was terrible, and they didn't edit or remove any details. I've attempted to communicate with them several times, but nothing. I purchased an ebook from them, and it appears that a rookie created the book. The person who conducted that meeting took advantage of our delayed meeting. I only enjoyed a handful of photos, and it ended up urging me to purchase the book when I wanted three. I agreed but then called them 20 minutes later to cancel the purchase because my husband was highly disappointed and never returned my call and then decided to mail me an invoice the next day, saying it was a final sale. I contacted customer service, and they told me they had already sent me the digital copies, so they had nothing to do with the issue. I received my book three months later, and it isn't perfect. THEY EVEN MESSED UP THE PRINTED PICTURES. I want to upload the photos to show how bad the work was. I spent almost $400! This is very unprofessional and takes advantage of new mothers.

    He made the process simple.

    My experience with Life 365 photos was overwhelming. Let's begin with the photographer. We set up a photo shoot, but within 30 minutes of the shooting, the photographer asked to reschedule to an earlier date. I thought the reason was that my children were not as cooperative as I would like, and I was frustrated by it was all the more reason to decline her request. The second photo shoot went smoothly. However, when it was time to look over my photos, the first photo shoot did not exist. Therefore, I was working on my second review, which I needed to take to be able to. The thing is, when I informed them of the missing photos from the first review, nobody contacted me for some time, and when I decided to reach out to them and got a response that said the missing photos were not discovered. I was able to get discounts and an incredible agent named KEN. Ken is the only reason I'll be considering Life 365 once more. Thank you again, Ken; You're the best. He was extremely accommodating and worked with my schedule, which was a huge plus. He made the process simple.

    They are lying.

    They are lying. I've worked with them on a deal worth $150 for a couple of digital images. After that, they phoned me and told me the package would include free photography. However, after spending time with me, they began with $800 boxes.

    The quality of the images is fantastic.

    I was delighted with my experience working with photographer Keith. He was terrific with my kids and very accommodating. My family was pleased with the whole experience. The review of the pictures with Denise was a pleasure. She was highly knowledgeable about the different packages. The prices are a bit high in cost, but they can set up excellent payment plans. The quality of the images is fantastic.

    The company was awful to work

    The company was awful to work for, and the company's manager, Rick Miller(I think that's his last name), One management team member within the Midwest, was among the rudest individuals I've had the pleasure of meeting. He was a liar about the pay and working conditions. It's a fraud. It is better to go with your family members to private photographers. It's a shame many families are being duped by the overpriced service and getting a poor high-quality photo. Don't make a mistake by spending your money.

    This company is a total fake

    This company is a total fake. They don't treat their employees with respect and frequently cancel on those who have scheduled for photo shoots. Their employees constantly berated people, dismissing half of their newly hired employees without warning, claiming they needed to "save money" even though they had recently hired several employees in the Philippines. Many employees of life365's portraits are now trying to find new jobs due to the rising cost of living. The company was dismissed without warning. Do not think that this is a failure of the company. Other photographers are founded on honesty a, and Life365 portraits, isn't it?

    We received our photos from this business very late

    We received our photos from this business very late. We waited longer than we expected to get the pictures... We paid $600 for photographs and a canvas, only to discover Walmart made the picture... How can I tell? ... since they put their Walmart Photo Center sticker in the rear. The quality was okay, but certainly not worth the price we paid. It was a bit disappointing as I expected this business to produce its work as a professional photography business should. The first and only time we've used this service.

    It's certainly not free

    It's certainly not free. Once your photos are taken, they inform you that you can subscribe for $10. You are able to set up sessions at any time, which is good. However, the costs for prints are outrageously high. Their cheapest price starts at $499.

    Considering the poor customer service practices.

    Life 365 contacted us via phone and told us that they had won a contest to do a photoshoot. They promised us some sizes of photos free of charge. The photographer arrived and informed us the hard copies weren't free, but the digital copies were, and they'd send us the images within three days; three days later, life 365 contacted us to confirm that one picture was for free and to pick the one that was the most damaging. This is a very shady way to conduct business for a highly regarded company. We will not call them back, considering the poor customer service practices.

    Awful customer service.

    Awful customer service. I was told I didn't have to spend $30 on "Designer Images" per photo. However, that's exactly what I received—one edited image. I paid $430 to purchase one usable picture. It was unprofessional to view photographs. The schedule had to be changed the appointment, even after I had taken an absence from work to attend. I would if I could return all the photos and claim my money back.

    I didn't receive the same high-quality work.

    One star is enough for the quality of the photography and customer service. The work is concerned, it isn't worth the money I paid for. My photos arrived in the mail without being retouched. I was told I was going to be edited before being sent. The editing was so poor that each frame had a distinct skin tone. Please take your pictures; I'll be glad you did. I've used this service with my first son previously, and it's disappointing that I didn't receive the same high-quality work.

    This is not very professional and polite.

    My daughter was scheduled to meet with them. The girl came in, gave up, and left crying. The girl didn't give her time to soothe her. She was repeatedly told that it was not a cost and she only needed to pay for the items she wanted to purchase. Was she then presented with an invoice for an amount for convenience? This is not very professional and polite.

    Mr. Elijah was PHENOMENAL! One thing I love about photographers is that they aren't afraid to change your hair or necklace or even adjust your arm. Without a doubt, Elijah was a pleasure to work with. Elijah was hands-on and ready with suggestions to use all the props available. He was extremely kind to our three month old and managed to get our child smiling (we have a severe child, lol). We're looking forward to having more photo shoots shortly with Mr. Elijah! I can't wait!

    I'm not satisfied

    The company contacts new parents and informs them that they'll capture "free" pictures of their children... They invite parents to join them, take pictures, and charge $1,500 for the images. I'd prefer they claim that the photo session is completely free, and should we like the photos, we can purchase them later. Shady and unprofessional business practices. They ruined both our money and time. Beautiful pictures. I'm happy to have them...but I'm not satisfied that they lied to my wife.

    The photographer captured great photos; however, we had to contact them for more than a week to discover why we couldn't look them up on our viewing date, only to find out that our son's photos were missing. We requested an opportunity to reshoot, but no one approached us to schedule an appointment for a shoot reshoot. We have paid for the VIP membership and asked for refunds in the wake of losing the pictures of our son. We haven't received it as well. The communication was poor, and I am still the case trying to contact them for my refund.

    It's akin to the act of stealing.

    They can charge you with cards that you don't have previously in your file. It's akin to the act of stealing. They even attempted $2.00 transactions to determine whether the card would work. This evening they attempted to use the last 43.00 I was carrying on my card! I'mdistraughtt as this money was used to purchase my baby formula, which costs $38.00 for each canister. Our agreement was $97.27 every biweekly. The card that was repeatedly used that wasn't on file is still a mystery to me. This leads me to believe that the man from California recorded my card's number and then kept it for this reason. I'm so angry !!!!!!! I'm going to turn this to the next level with this company!

    They were not all friendly with my kids

    The photographers were good. However, they were not all friendly with my kids (3yr and ten months old). I looked at the pictures, and they looked fantastic until I received my final images. Two of the 12 were in the center, and two were not. The remainder were my kids ' feet and heads cut off or bent. I called them and left a few messages because they do not have representatives to speak with. I went to emails, and they responded and sent me two pictures from the previous package, which were in good condition. The company did not correct or resent any of the photos that were damaged.
    Terrible experience and a total waste of 300 dollars
