SESSION FEE / PAYMENTS

Due to the limited slots and back to back booking, mini session fees are non-refundable and are due at the time of booking. Your session fee includes 1 photography session, basic retouching of the selected images of your choice, hosting of the gallery, and digital download of high-resolution images with print release for your use.  The price of the session and number of images included depends on the individual mini session being promoted.  Additional digital images can be provided at an additional cost of $12.50 per image and multiple printing options are available at an additional fee.  

Basic retouching includes light blemish/scratch, teeth whitening, softening of under eye area where necessary.  Complex retouching includes but is not limited to removal of scars and heavy blemishes, excessive tan line removal, tattoo removal, subtle face or body slimming are not included in mini-sessions but can be provided for an additional fee at the client's request.

CANCELLATION AND RESCHEDULING

Please note that your session fee is non-refundable. In the event that you cancel your portrait session after it has been scheduled, no refund of your session will be made to you.  However, as we understand that schedules may change, in the event that you need to reschedule your session and you provide at least twenty-four (24) hours advance notice of same, your session fee may be applied to the next mini-session event (date to be determined).

If the Photographer is unable to perform to the guidelines of this contract due to fire or other casualty, act of God, act of terrorism, or other cause beyond control of the parties, or due to a grave illness of the Photographer, and if the Photographer is unable to provide another photographer that is agreeable to the client, then all fees paid by the client will be returned in full.  

NAME / JOB / TITLE

Your images will be ready to view 5 business days after each session via a private online gallery hosted on our website. Once the images are uploaded to the online gallery, the client will have a 14-day window to make selections and/or download their selections.    The gallery will close after 14 days.  If the client requests the images be re-posted to the gallery after the 14 days has expired, a $25 re-posting fee will be issued and the images will be re-posted to the gallery for an additional 14-day period.   The client will be responsible for downloading their images to a device for personal use.    After this, all sales are final.  There are no returns on files, no exceptions. 

MINI-SESSION DETAILS AND POLICIES

Mini-Sessions are scheduled back-to-back, any client that is late to their session, will lose that time from their session.  To avoid this, Clients should intend to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to their session start time.  

LIFESTYLE MEMORIES Photography will use this time wisely and try to capture the best possible images in the allowable time frame.  This will include entire family images, images of siblings together, and images of children individually, as long as time allows and children are willing to be photographed.  The session schedule will indicate if pets are welcome and again will be contingent on time and if the pet is willing to be photographed.  Sorry, there will be no time for clothing changes. As mini-sessions and their inclusions are offered at a discounted rate, no other offers or discounts apply, and re-shoots are not offered.  

It is the Client's responsibility that any children involved in the photography session arrive in the following condition: 

·       Healthy (free of illness)

·       Full belly (Hunger = unhappy children)
