Usage of Images
The session fee pays for the time and talent of the photographer and for your in-person viewing appointment. It does not include any finished portraits.
The session fee is due at the time of booking. Session fees are non-refundable, however with 48 hours notice it can be rescheduled in case of an emergency.
If you have a sick child on the day of the session please call to reschedule. If you try to keep the appointment, we will most likely request that you reschedule if we notice your child is sick. Sick or uncomfortable children do not like to be photographed and we know that you will not love your portraits nearly as much as if he or she was in good health.
Please bring only the subjects to be photographed to the session. This is especially important with children, as we will need their full attention on her rather than looking at other members of the family. Of course parents are always welcome!
Personal cameras are not allowed in studio during your session. Please refrain from taking iPhone images or videotaping. We work very hard to ensure your session is captured artistically and creatively. We ask that you respect our livelihood and refrain from taking photographs of what we are creating.
You will view your portraits at a personally attended slideshow. You will be asked to order at this time. Please make sure all decision makers are present.
Payment for the products is payable at the viewing. This can be made by Credit or Debit Card, Cash or Bank Transfer.
Decisions at the Sales Viewing are final and no changes can be made afterwards.
While we capture many images during your session, you will see only those images selected by us for previewing.
We carefully render each image to ensure maximum artistry and technical perfection. Images with eyes closed,heads turned, duplicates, etc. will not be shown and are removed from the archives permanently after the artist rendering is complete.
Due to the custom nature of the work, payment for your order must be placed in full at the sales viewing and is non refundable.
Please allow 4 weeks for your order to be completed. Some orders may take longer. Your portraits are an investment and an heirloom that should not be rushed.
You will be notified by telephone or e-mail when your order is ready for pickup or delivery.
All ordered images are kept on file for a period of 1 year.
The Copyright Act protects photographers by giving us the exclusive right to reproduce your photographs. Violations include, but are not limited to, making illegal copies, scanning, printing from home or downloading from our website. However should you purchase the digital files you have the right to print them for personal use only.
We reserve the right to use images for marketing and promotional purposes. This includes online as well as print.
