For the amount of money this woman charges for her pictures, you would think she would at least be pleasant, timely, and give her customers the time in their photoshoot they deserve. Nope, not Amy!! I paid 300 dollars there to have photos taken of my child, so I expected to be treated well. Boy was I wrong. She hurried me through the session, she took a maximum of 15 minutes and then SHE decided there were enough photos. I didn't get nearly as many as I wanted, and I didn't even like ONE photo when they came back. It took weeks to get them and then when I did get them they're were a few missing, I never saw the missing photos for 2 months, and I only got them when I had to call her. Amy, you are very unprofessional, I was completely dissatisfied with your work. You take beautiful photos, but if you aren't going to treat your customers good, lower your outrageous prices. You won't see me back there again. I got treated better at walmart. If any one else has had horrible service at impressions feel free too add.

If you want someone who takes great pictures and the prices are good check out Glenda Bickford on rt 58 in Fowler. I had my grand daughter's pictures taken and they were great and the prices were good also. She will take the time.

She(Impressions) did the pictures for the St. James Gala a couple years ago and I found her to be rude also.She would not let my husband and I pose how we wanted, when I asked her why she simply stated I am the professional not you.I was not happy at all.I also checked her out on FB to see when she has specials because I have heard many good things.Well there was a special posted and I commented with a question as many others did, she answered every other question except mine.I thought that was rude but she made it very clear in a later post that she is very busy so whatever I guess.Just my experiences.I will be going to Wainwight's where I know for sure she is not only professional but nice, prices are decent & satisfaction guaranteed.

i had my daughters taken by her last year! i agree she is way over priced. the kids like having there senior pictures posted on line for all to see. if anyone had a decent camera THEY could take just as good of pictures of their kids. for the prices people are paying they could purchase a nice camera and do it all their self!! i will be doing that this year for my senior. good luck parents and if your going to amy better get a loan......

I remember last year for AYSO soccer, she took the team and individual pics...I picked a certain package and she "ran out" of one of the things included in the package - she included a note in their saying it would be 2 weeks and we would get the one thing she didn't have enough of....guess what ??? it's been a year, and never got anything !!

She's a half-assed business woman!! She was telling people on facebook all this crap about how they would get their pictures back in 10 days after they chose which ones they wanted....yeah right!!! I wouldn't let her photograph a picture of my dog. She is unprofessional and dirty! My friend went to have her take pictures of her grand daughter and by the time she got her up to take pictures of her, her feet were filthy from her disgusting floors! I'd take pictures with my own camera before I'd go to her!!!
Loved it

I thought she was very professional and I had no issues with her at all. The pictures are overpriced but it was worth it because of the quality and the touch ups she did to make the pictures perfect.

Theres no sitting fee and if you're unhappy with your photos dont order any and go somewhere else, so you arent out anything but your time. All I have to say is its better than Gidgets unproffesional attitude and the same old pond setting every single time!

She did the same thing to Hammond Central School this year. She never gave them their class photos.

Wow I am glad she snubbed me & I chose to give my buisness to someone else.Thanks for all the input everyone, it has been very helpful to me.This is what this sight is for, not bashing everyone but sharing experiences so people can have informed decisions from other's experiences.Word of mouth is the best advertisement so I've heard.

first impression

the gouv central school hires her to take the kids pictures and your expected to pay before you can even see them! amy hires some kid to tag along and he takes most of the pictures and they are shitty pics. this is not professional to me and why bother trying to take a nice photo when you already have the cash. not impressed for sure
wow

If you dont like her dont use her to take your pics..i have seen many of her pics and they are beautiful and different..whereas Gidget's are always the same pose and same background.And Gidget is too worried about her personal life and takes weeks to return calls

The people who are sticking up for amy get real....Her prices are sky high this isnt new york city its small town gouverneur. its truely crazy. i had my pictures done by her once and i still havent seen half of my order and its been nearly a year. She goes through quick and she is completely rude her additude needs a change. And i agree you do act like your better then everyone else and you have no reason to be cause your far from it. your bussiness is not gonna make it in this town with your additude and price. i give you a f for effort cause your rush instead of taking your time and you dont take your time whats the sence of even being a photographer?? you amy elliot need a huge reality check and fast.

Ive had pictures taken from her and from Wainwrights. Amy may be high priced for this town but she knows way more about photography then gidget does.
Pretty as a picture

I agree that Amy has high prices, but the pictures were very good,we had tons of poses to choose from and were happy with the results. We did have some trouble getting everything we ordered, maybe she should hire an office assistant to be in the office to deal with picking up pictures and taking phone calls. At no time did I get the impression that she was better than anyone else...I can think of many other people in Gouverneur who walk around with their nose in the air. There is absolutely no way that I would go to Gidget to have pictures taken. She was hired to take pictures for the school yearbook...look at it, who has the most pictures, the cheerleaders...many of the pictures of the other sports teams were few and far between, duplicates, or so far away that you can't tell who the people in the pictre are. This is American and anyone can start a business so we have choices. Hopefully the people visiting this site will gather information and make the right choice for them.

Also Angela Knowlton and a few of her friends are photographers....they do GREAT !!!! AND, all they ask is for a donation and she gives you the disc w/ all copyrights released so you can print off what you want and not have to buy more.
