PHOTO SHOOT POLICIES
PARENTS OF TEENS (16 years and up). All teen clients must be accompanied by an adult/legal guardian and be present at all times. However, we do not allow the parent or legal guardian to enter the area where the session is taking place. Our studio has a lounge area where you can sit, relax, read a magazine or observe your Teen's seesion. For location sessions, we will meet you and your teen at the location. Sorry, but we do not work with clients under the age of 16 (except for actors that need headshots).
PERSONAL CAMERA | PHONE. We do NOT allow personal cameras, cell phones or video cameras into our studio or on location sessions at any time or for any reason.
DEPOSIT. The deposit fee for both Adult and Teen sessions is $125.00 and it must be paid when reserving your session date/time..
SESSION FEE. The session fee is non-refundable but may be applied toward a re-scheduled session within 6 months with a 48 hour cancellation (**see exception below). The balance of your session fee will be due at the end of your session. We do not accept personal checks. Cash, cashier's checks, Visa and MasterCard are accepted. Thereis a 2% fee for credit card payments.
RE-SCHEDULING. If you need to re-schedule your seesion, we require a 2 day business day notice. Re-scheduling with less than 2 business days (48 hours), will result in the forfeiture of your deposit.
**IF WE HAVE TO RE-SCHEDULE. If we have to re-schedule your session, you will receive a 25% discount off of your remaining balance. You may also receive a full refund of your deposit if you would prefer to cancel the session entirely.
LATE ARRIVALS. If you are late for your shoot, know that it will result in less shoot time and fewer images/looks as we may have another booking after yours. If you are over 40 Minutes late, it will be considered a cancellation and will result in the forfeiture of your deposit.
CANCELLATIONS & NO –SHOWS. We require a one week notice for cancellations. Believe it or not, there have been those ocassional clients that haven't shown up to their sessions because they simply forgot. Keep in mind, that it takes time for us to prepare for our bookings. Our time is valuable, just like yours is. We make every effort to work with your schedule and time constraints, so we know that you can appreciate our side of things. If you forget your session entirely and/or just simply decide not to show up, it will result in the forfeiture of your deposit.
PRINTING. We have partnserships with many different printers across the country. If you require any of your images to be printed, additional fees will apply.
RESHOOTS & REFUNDS. Photographs are artistic creations. Interpretation of artistic creations is extremely subjective. Because of this, there are no reshoots or refunds other than for technical failure or malfunctions where the client does not receive proficient images in clear focus. That rarely happens.
