I last used Mainstreet Portraits for Christmas photos of my two toddlers. I was very pleased with the photographer. She did a great job setting up two kids under age three and was successful in getting smiles, etc. I elected for plain backgrounds and simple props. I didn’t feel like tacky backgrounds and props were being pushed on me.
Another thing I really liked was the immediate proof viewing on the computer, the ability to see different effects and options, and how clear the screen was (unlike other studios I have visited where you had to guess what your final photo would look like through the fuzzy image). You get to take a really nice proof sheet with you to make your portrait selection at home too.
