Your session is officially booked when payment is received AND a contract is signed. All contracts, photo releases, and invoices are sent via email.
Payment can be made by credit card via the invoice link I send to clients, or cash/check. Payment must be received prior to receiving proofs and is due at the time of your session. A $50 non-refundable retainer is required to secure a time and date.
Clients are asked to sign a photo release to allow their photos on the website and my social media channels. All promotional sessions require a release. For sessions where a release is optional, I retain copyright regardless of release but will not post your images if you request they remain private. You can view the photo release here.
The success of your session is dependent upon your cooperation.
I will gladly reschedule for weather-related problems. I will generally contact you in advance if weather is going to be questionable. If something else comes up, for example, a sick child, please let me know as soon as possible to determine the best course of action. Most times of year, I am able to reschedule at a mutually convenient time. Cancellations for non-emergency reasons without notice/no shows are subject to the session fee.
I retain copyright on all photos.
My stock and editorial photos are available for purchase here.
