I was very pleased with how my kids photos turned out i have 4 children and my money is tight i wanted to buy all the photos so they let me post date 2 checks well to make my long story short my last check was deposited early and put me in over draft i was so upset so i called the local office and spoke with a very nice woman named christi she took care of everything without a hassle it made my day so much better i'm so glad that you guys are honest people and your word is good.i wish you guys a happy holiday and may god bless you all!

I WORKED ALL DAY FOR THEM, IN RETURN I GOT $100 WORTH OF FREE PICS. WHICH CONSISTED OF 4-5X7 AND A COUPLE OF WALLETS. THE CLOTHES THEY HAD TO CHOOSE FROM WHERE DIRTY, RIPED AND THE PICTUES WERE NOT WORTH IT AT ALL. THE SET UP WAS IN A RAN DOWN MOTEL.(THE ROOM ACCUALLY CAUGHT ON FIRE WHILE THERE WERE CUSTOMERS GETTING DRESSED) IT WAS TERRIBLE. YOU CAN GO TO WALMART AND GET 1-10X13, 2-8X10 AND A WHOLE PAGKAGE FOR $4.99 AND I PROMISE YOU WILL GET BETTER SERVICE AND BETTER PICTURES!

I paid them $19.99 for a single portrait of my son, went to a hotel room here in town, I hope that this little po-dunk, political town I live in BANS these people from doing business in this town. They were going to be in the "room" until 8:00 p.m. and they do not answer the phone! Scam me don't you, I will be turning you over to the Better Business Bureau for fraud!!!

I got my children's pictures there yesterday. Granted, the clothing was not the best, they are supposed to be antique pictures and I am sure they are going to turn out well. The photographer was very funny and had my kids laughing and smiling for the pictures. I am excited to see how they turned out!

yes i to worked all day well set allday i had phots taken of all 5 of my grandchildren. to tell the truth i han a great day , they do not force you to take the photo you put your name in the box .they tell you up front that there is a fee .think about it some one has to pay for the film .there is NO hidden charges they work with you any way possible .my photographer was awsom . could not been any better .i look forward to getting my phgtgs back ,even if they are my 100.00 worth i am sure you where not to busy that day so at least you saved money and got pictures to last a life time

this company rips people off ,they charge a setting fee at time of taking pictures and again when you buy pictures ,I will be calling the Attorney Gereral .They are overpriced enough without ripping you off for more money and to top it off I spent over 300.00 and the saleman didn't even say thank you .American Studios Inc you are a joke and I will not ever send anyone to you again

I had a good experience with them. I basically told them how I wanted the pics taken and both kids was in the pic. My free one was a 8x10 of both. They was very polite and tried to work with me on payments. A pleasure to do business with. Some of the poses that I thought I wouldnt like turned out pretty awesome. The clothes are supposed to be ragged looking...something kids would wear as "play clothes" I would recommend them to anyone.

If i would have known what i was getting myself into i probably would have not got My girls' pictures taken with them. First off i was told to have their hair done only to have the guy put a hat on their heads, then the guy taking the pics was not friendly, making me feel like i had to be rushed and it my whole experience of my baby girls first pics unpleasant she was crying the whole time and i felt it was not all that great like they make it seem. they need to get more professional people to work for them, we'll see if it was worth it

I have done these pictues for 3 years now and I will never do them again, thanks to this company.
I picked up my pictures today and to guy was so rude to me because I did not buy the big package telling me how dumb it was and it didn't make any sense. Well if this company had any sense they would not allow people like that to represent their company. I just want to thank them for a horrable experience!!!!!!!!!!

Can anyone tell me about how I can email these people? I have tried to call but no one has answered the phone and I had had my kids pictures took about 2 years ago and got a 8/10 picture free, but the packet I ordered was reduced to half price and at the time I was in a very tight spot cause I was going through the death of my dad. Now I am in a very tight spot money wise, and was wondering if they could just let me have the proofs of my kids pictures. My kids were taken away from me over a lie by DCBS and this would mean the world to me to get these pictures. so if you have any info please let me know my email address is gail_patricia_angel@yahoo.com my pictures were taken in Tiffany Inn Motel in Monticello, KY

I recently went and had my kids pics done and the whole thing was a headache from the beginning!!! The photographer was a totally @ss!!!!!!! He was hateful and RUDE!!!! If I could have gotten my money back, I would have told him to stick the pics...well you know where. My kids are 3 and 4 and he was treating them like they were supposed to know what they were doing. I live 4 hours from where this was and they would not even work with me on the time I HAD to come pick up my "free" 8x10. What a crock. If I had known this I would have never gone!!!

I worked for American Studios a couple times a while back and at the time things were not as them seem to be now. Who was your photographer? and the person who you met with to pick up your photos?
