The quality is sub-par. My kids always have to have retakes. Each year I'm disappointed that I spend more money than you get back in value. The photos have been off-center, my girls are either half smiling, eyes half open, it's always something that I feel could easily be avoided in this digital age! I once chose the Retouching option hoping for better results and they looked ridiculously fake and completely computer-generated. My three girls have all had their Pre-K photos done (two years each) by local, professional, independent photographers for a slightly higher fee and I've never been disappointed. The only reason I continue choosing school photos is for my kids to have class photos to cherish.

Horrible. Would leave zero stars if I could. Paper is cheap crap, images are flat, my daughter's skin is green and the Photoshop line around my son's head is so strong it looks like it was drawn with a marker. If my school district uses Geskus next year I'll be having pictures done elsewhere. It's been 3 months and every time I look at these pictures I get angry that I paid money for this crap.
I wish I could give this company zero stars. My kids' school district chose Geskus this year (we've always had Life Touch before) to try and save parents money, I do appreciate the thought. However the savings for my family was less than $10/child. You get one background choice, the background I wanted was an extra $3, that same background is FREE with Life Touch. Naturally I stayed with the one no extra cost background. Let's talk quality or lack there of. There are print lines through my child's forehead, he looks super imposed on the background and the wallet sizes look blurry. The paper is glossy and terrible quality and each photo sheet is in a stapled book, which makes cutting out the photos inconvenient. None of those are things that can be fixed with retakes.
Best you can get! Absolutely accommodating, the pictures turned out beautiful. Definitely recommend!
Kathleen Berry of Life. Love. Shots. did a phenomenal job photographing our wedding! Not only was she extremely professional, she has a very creative eye and captured timeless moments beautifully! Katie went above and beyond the call of your run of the mill photographer by spending well over 12 hours with my wedding party the day of the event capturing everything from getting ready to the end of the reception. She was easy to communicate with and took suggestions to heart while expressing her ideas and having no problem taking charge when necessary. As the bride, the last thing I wanted was to have to wrangle my photographer and have important shots missed, and with Life. Love. Shots. I didn't have to think about that for a moment. I had countless guests from the wedding day express to me at the event and after how fantastic of a job she did and how well she seemed to "fit right in" with our group! What else could one ask for on one of the most important days of their life?! I highly recommend Katie Berry with Life. Love. Shots. to anyone looking to immortalize any important event with beautiful, timeless art that will last forever! A breath of fresh air in the hum drum, run if the mill world of photography!!~Sarah
They did our school pictures. Not only were both off center (one severely), but I had to call them when I received the proof to correct it. They assured me it was fixed and I could order. So I did. Turn around time is 2 weeks per the ordering site. 2 1/2 weeks later I call them and ask where my photos are. They tell me they notice they were off center after printing so they sent them to reprint. Why was I not called? I asked when they would come in. They did not know, the woman on the phone was short, cold, and just shy of being rude.I am about to cancel my order and do a charge back if they refuse a refund.
