DD was christened at the beginning of December and a friend of DHs who is trained in photography but doesn't do it as a living did the photos for us. The thing is, we still haven't got them back.

She had some personal issues just after the christening, which I completely understand and gave her some time, but it's almost May and we still don't have them.

Wibu to message her and ask her what's going on? I haven't had any contact with her, it's all been through DH, but he doesn't want to bug her (he hasn't spoken to her in over a month)

Was this a paid arrangement or a favour?

Of course you can send her a friendly message asking whether she's been able to sort out the photos yet as you are looking forward to seeing them.

Unfortunately I hope you have some back ups because it doesn't sound too hopeful.

Yanbu, you aren't hounding her!
Did anyone else take any photos at all?

A friendly message just saying if she could send them over, sure. Particularly with digital being so easy to do. You could even mention drop box of shall I give you a USB stick if it's easier etc

Sorry, started watching Netflix and forgot.

It was a prearranged paid for agreement. And no, not really sad she said she would put them on a USB anyway so we could have all the photos but she's printing s few off herself for us.

Thank you, I will message her tomorrow.

Don't "message her", pick up the phone and speak to her!

If you paid for them then of course you're within your rights to chase the photos!

If you've paid her then I don't see the issue. Ask for them.

Just ask nicely. If she's having some personal issues, well, that happens. But maybe she can give you a timescale for when she might be able to get the photos to you. Most people respond quite well to being asked nicely.

In my experience, if she's going through some shit a message is easier to deal with than a phone call which can catch you off guard, particularly if it's not someone who you normally talk to
