Alright, I just read the entire first post. You friend has absolutely NO rights to the photos. She didn’t pay for them so move on! There is absolutely nothing you nor her can do about it.
Boo hoo, she has no pictures of her daughter… she should have PAID a REAL photographer, then she wouldn’t have gone through that mess.
Yes, the photographer should have been upfront about not being happy with them instead of wasting your friend’s time, but now it’s done. Posting here is not going to help, nor is continuing to harass the photographer. Have your friend write a review on their facebook page wash their hands of it & move the F on!
