Hi, mods feel free to delete if this isn't the appropriate sub.
I just want some advice about how to approach this situation. So yesterday I decided to get a "college senior" photoshoot because my high school portraits turned out bad. The photographer I approached is known for her high school senior pictures, and she charges about 225 for an 1-1.5 hour session. When I contacted her I said I wanted the 225 session but she said that since I'm not in high school she would charge me less, only 180. Yesterday I went through with the photoshoot, and at the shoot was only 30 mins long. I didn't have the guts to speak up at the moment because she was already in her car and leaving by the time I looked at the clock and realized how little time has passed.
Now technically I do think it is my own fault for not clarifying the amount of time the session would be before I paid her my despoit (the $180) but I do just feel very sad about how rushed it was. Reading our emails she did say this would be a "special session" but she didn't clarify what that meant. I probably should have asked though. It was also super cold so I wonder if that was a factor.
Anyways, I was wondering if it would be rude to text her today and bring this issue up? Should I tell her that even though I appreciated her work, that the session was shorter than I expected? My ideal situation would be to have her shoot me for another 30 mins to an hour but I'm worried that instead my bringing up this issue would cause drama and make her mad.
