A. Session Fees
Client agrees to pay photographer a deposit at the time of booking to secure their appointment date and time. This is a non-refundable deposit fee of $50.00 that goes toward your session. The remaining balance is due at the time of the session. The session fee covers the time and talent of photographer, basic retouching and editing of images, as determined by the photographer. Additional digital images may be available for purchase.
If an illness or situation prevents a photo session from taking place, client may reschedule their session at least 24 hours prior to their shoot for a fee of $40.00. Should client fail to give 24 hours notice, or decide to completely cancel the shoot, this session fee is forfeited, will not be refunded and client is responsible of paying remaining balance of their session fee. Photographer reserves the right to reschedule due to illness, weather, equipment malfunction, or other circumstances beyond their control.
After one (1) month, all images will be purged from photographer’s hard-drive, except as needed for promotional purposes, to be determined by photographer at photographer’s sole discretion. Photographer is not responsible for loss or damage to the digital files due to circumstances beyond photographer’s control.
Prior to the session beginning, all payments must be made in full. Any unpaid balance must be paid upon arrival on the day of the photo shoot.
