A. Session Fees
Client agrees to pay photographer a non refundable session fee at the time of booking to secure their appointment date and time (or due date). The remaining balance is due at the session. Your session fee covers the time and talent of photographer and creative editing of images, as determined by the photographer, and viewing gallery of approx 30-40 images for full sessions and 20-25 for mini sessions. Some sessions will include an amount of digital images. Please be sure to review all pricing details. Pricing information can be found on the "pricing" page at www.poshprettyportraits.com. There are no refunds or exchanges of any kind due to the custom nature of portrait photography.
B. Rescheduling/ Canceling
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 without penalty. Should client fail to give 24 hours notice, or decide to completely cancel the shoot, this session fee is forfeited and will not be refunded. Photographer reserves the right to reschedule or cancel due to illness, weather, equipment malfunction, or other circumstances beyond her control.
C. Re-shoots / Refunds
Re-shoots are determined at the discretion of the photographer. There are no refunds.
After twelve (12) months, 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.
All payments are due in full unless payment arrangements have been made. Orders will not be processed until payment in full is received. If client has arranged a payment plan, order will be placed after the final payment has been received.
Photographer is not responsible for the damage of portraits after delivery to client, including damage caused during transit by US mail. Client assumes all responsibility for the safety of all portraits upon receipt.
G. Your Session
Newborn sessions are conducted at my home studio located at 3964 Garfield Ave, Hamburg NY
Please be prompt for your session. I schedule around best lighting times and the "sleepiest" times. We will plan to begin your session at about 10:00 am. For newborn sessions I allow a 30 minute cushion (between 10:00 and 10:30 am) as getting out of the house with a new baby can be difficult. Arriving late to your appointment will result in lost session time. If you are running late, please let me know. Your session may need to be rescheduled if you arrive over 30 minutes after our scheduled start time. If you fail to show for your scheduled appointment or your session has to be rescheduled due to tardiness, an additional $50 deposit will be required to reschedule.
If you have not already, please review samples of my work to make sure that my style of photography and editing is a good fit for you (these can be seen on my website at www.poshprettyportraits.com or facebook.com/poshprettyportraits). When you book with me, you are giving me full reign over session styling and artistic editing of photos. I will be choosing the best of the images to edit and present to you so if you see anything that you don’t care for during the session, PLEASE speak up. It won’t hurt my feelings as I want to make sure I’m providing you with pictures that you will love. My newborn editing workflow includes brightening, removing any baby acne and prominent skin flakes, reducing redness and yellowing caused by jaundice, softening skin to even out blotchiness and give a smooth texture, adding a slight "glow" to the skin, and sharpening to bring out features. If either parent is opposed to any of this, my style of photography may not be a good fit for you. Better to discuss this now then after the session as there are no refunds.
H. After the session
You will receive an email to view and/ or download your images online within two to three weeks. If you would prefer to receive your digital images on a flash-drive, one can be purchased from your viewing gallery for $59. Please note, again, there no refunds or exchanges on fees paid due to the custom nature of portrait photography.
