    Hello, wow! I was wondering when the day was going to come when I would stumble upon an article like this…..and here it is. I will have to be honest and say that I am a Lifetouch employee, and have been for about 5 years now. I love what I do, who I represent, and all that we stand for; a company that can mold to and partner with the schools we service, have streamlined systems in place that are almost unbeatable, and contribute back to so many communities with great services, and the best formulated photo systems in the industry.

    I do have to say though, to local studios—there are a few services that are not able to be matched—and that schools find very valuable, priceless in fact; stuff that the smaller guy just can’t produce. For example: Lifetouch protects all of their customers with a safety net-rapid response missing children program that is partnered with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children(AKA ‘Milk Carton people’ , and the organization the ‘America’s most Wanted’ ‘s John Walsh leads.) There is no way at this point that ma and pa can provide a service as powerful as this.
    Lifetouch is also flexing to what parents want, instead of what the local photo studio wants. Lifetouch is asking moms what they want, and turning on a dime when doing so(wha?? cruiseliners can do that?? yes we can!)—Lifetouch offers pose selection, retouching at minimal rates, and retakes at no charge; no questions asked. Many local studios are losing sight of customer service whereas Lifetouch is not, it is a company built on American values, beliefs and tradition–and customer service and satisfaction is #1.

    These are just a few ways that make Lifetouch almost untouchable—there are several more, but hey–if you’re one of our customers or schools–you’ll find out soon enough—we are the best—and when you own part of the company as I do(and all of Lifetouch employees)–you love what you do, and you’ll fight for it!
    Best of luck to all, and I hope my feedback was helpful!

    Your loyalty to Lifetouch is very admirable. I have to agree that many Lifetouch territories do contribute back to their communities. But, like Walmart they can also put some family owned businesses out of business.

    My point to the local “mom & pop” photographers is that there is no reason to feel threatened. There is nothing that a local studio cannot do to compete with Lifetouch, including a program like SmileSafe. If you continue to read on, I mention a service called “Click N Safe”, which I feel offers every value as the SmileSafe program as offered by Lifetouch. Local photographers are more in tune with their customers, the a large company can ever be. In fact, the local photography goes to church, shops, and are neighbors with many of the clients they photograph.
