I, [swift_email name=”email”], and Janine Speake Photography agree to the following:
A. Session Fees
Client agrees to pay 50% of their fee to book a session and reserve a spot with Janine Speake Photography. This is a non-refundable fee that covers the time and talent of photographer, use of props, and creative editing of images, as determined by the photographer. Prints, products and digital images included in the fee will be listed below. Please be sure to review all pricing details. Pricing information will be discussed during the pre- session consultation and will be emailed to the client for reference. There are no refunds or exchanges of any kind due to the custom nature of portrait photography.
If an illness or situation prevents a photo session from taking place, the client may reschedule the session at least 24 hours prior to the shoot without penalty. Should the client fail to give 24 hours notice, or decide to completely cancel the shoot, this session fee is forfeited and will not be refunded. The photographer reserves the right to reschedule 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 thirty (30) days, 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. The photographer is not responsible for loss or damage to the digital files due to circumstances beyond photographer’s control.
All remaining payments are due on the day of the shoot unless other payment arrangements have been made. Editing and 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. All payments must be cleared before any products can be ordered.
The photographer is not responsible for the damage of portraits after delivery to client, including damage caused during delivery by Royal Mail. Client assumes all responsibility for the safety of all portraits upon receipt.
G. Your Session
The client should take the time to review samples of the photographer’s work to make sure that her style of photography and editing is a good fit (these can be seen at www.janinespeake.com or facebook.com/janinespeakephotography). When a client books with Janine Speake Photography, he/she gives the photographer full reign over session styling and artistic editing of photos. The photographer will be choosing the props that will be used and the best of the images to edit and present so if the client has specific likes or dislikes these should be discussed well in advance of the session. It is the photographer’s goal to provide all clients with pictures that they will love. Her 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, and sharpening to bring out features. If either parent is opposed to any of this, her style of photography may not be a good fit. Better to discuss this now then after the session as there are no refunds.
H. After the session
Your final images will be available 5-7 days after your session. Your images will be viewed by yourself in a private, password protected gallery. At this time (and only this time) the image gallery will be presented and you may choose your digital files/products included in your session fee. All parties that will need to be involved in the financial decision must be present. Your gallery will be active for 7 days.. If you need longer please allow for a £25 administration fee. Please note, again, there no refunds or exchanges on fees paid due to the custom nature of portrait photography.
