My experience at this photo studio definitely left a "lasting impression"---unfortunately not a pleasant one! If you are planning to take your child for portraits or seasonal pictures, seriously consider going to one of the other local portrait studios to support the Redlands business community. Mr. Doug Jirsa is not your "friendly", "neighborly" or even professional photographer as their website would have you believe. For instance, when I enquired about the background setting for my daughter's photo shoot, Mr. Jirsa reacted very defensive and discourteous. Even my daughter commented on his “rudeness”. I am not someone that tries to control every situation but like most mothers, I feel I know which background setting suits my daughter best. In any case, my encounter with this photo studio was nothing but disappointing.
