My Great Grandmother celebrated her 100th birthday. We wanted to make it memorable by taking a family portrait while we can seeing that she doesn't have many moons left. We were enticed with the savings that we thought we were getting by choosing Whitney as our photographer. In hindsight, I would have paid the extra money for someone with manners. We wanted the portrait done at our Grandmothers house in which she lived her entire life. We spend days of hard labor to fix up the home and get it in perfect shape for our anticipated portrait. I was disappointed when Whitney arrived late with the excuse that she had "bubble guts." I wasnt sure what that meant until I used the google search engine and found disturbing results. She was setting up her equipment and lights in the living room when I noticed she was passing flatulence. Upon confrontation, she then tried to pass blame onto my dear Great Grandmother who sat their innocently in her 90 year old rocking chair. I was hoping that by tolerating her poor attitude and manners that her work would be worth the hassle. Her photo arrived 4 months later and in poor condition. It looked like it sat in the back of someones car. It had dirty foot prints all over it and was wrinkled in many places. It was bittersweet that my Grandmother was not able to see her last photo. She sadly passed away before the photo arrived. I'm just glad she wasn't able to see the poor quality of a portrait that we all worked so hard to prepare for.
