If she is indeed getting her book, which I hope you do BTW, but if she is, I'm going to guess that he had to pay some crazy rush delivery and processing fees to get it done. Your book, which was ordered the 27th... so 7 business days ago... probably isn't even done printing yet!
I would say your book will probably be here by the end of the week, maybe next week.
As for the 30 prints, for a portfolio shoot, that actually sounds about right.
Piggybacking on Trisha's comment, I will say that the album that I got which was included in my session, was only 20 shots. If I wanted more than that, I had to pay extra. Since I knew that I wanted a more comprehensive album, I made another album myself.
With the album from my photog, I think I submitted the pictures that I picked out around Mother's Day & I didn't get the album at my door until the end of May. So thats like a 2 week turnaround.
Like Desiree mentioned, I also think that it matters as to the type of album this is. Did he specify the type of album that you'd receive? Is it an album that has the actual pictures on the pages (I don't know the professional name for it), or is it an album like the one you'd usually get if you made it online using Publisher, Shutterfly or Snapfish?
For instance, I did not expect this but the album that I got from my photographer was one where the prints were actually on the pages. Like they were the actual print.
In any event, I know with the online site that I used, it took about 2-3 days to process the order & then it took about 4-5 days to ship depending on whether you use Express shipping or normal delivery. So if he's using some type of online company I guess the album could be done in a short time frame.
My only advice is along the lines of what Desiree asked you. If he were'nt responding to my emails or phone calls, I'd go to his studio/unfinished basement, during business hours & try to get it resolved.
I do hope that this gets resolved for you.
