Ellie Bean can be hard. I use them a lot... Some of the pictures I have gotten back are OK but not amazing. I try to pick people that have done modeling before and have a good track record - also ones who obviously use pro photogs. Also I like to send a couple small things to a model first and if I like the pictures then send them more stuff (dresses or whatever)
I would ask to reshoot them. Honestly I know it sucks (I'm the same way, don't want to cause waves and/or hurt feelings) but it does state in their Ellie Bean contract aht the boutique may request that you re shoot if the pictures aren't what they wanted.
You probably should also be specific about what you want so that the Mom knows - like full body shots, etc.
