1. By agreeing to book a session with me, you are agreeing to the following terms hereafter:


2. A deposit will be required to reserve a session.

a. Deposits will be paid via the online checkout or an invoice. If agreed upon, Cashapp or Zelle will be accepted.

b. The deposit is non-refundable if the client cancels. However, if I am not able to perform the requested service at the agreed time, the client will be offered the opportunity to reschedule or to be refunded in full.

c. If the client wishes to reschedule from the day and time originally agreed upon, there will be a $35 reschedule fee.

d. If there are packages listed on the website, clients will have the opportunity to either pay a deposit or pay in full ahead of the shoot.


3. The remaining balance will be due by the end of the shoot. Payments can be made via the invoice, or Cashapp & Zelle if agreed prior to the shoot.

a. If there are packages listed on the website, clients will have the opportunity to do so.

b. No photography will be released to the client and no rights to images are granted until timely payment is made in full.


4. The standard return time is up to 4 weeks. This means your pictures will be returned within that time frame. How fast? Depends on the scope of the project. You will have the option to expedite your return time according to your needs.

a. Please do not go out out your way to ask me when the pictures will be ready, early into the time period allocated for editing, unless you have requested expedited service. There is typically a cue, and on average I do not start projects until the following week, unless the project is expedited.

b. If more time is required to complete the project, I will reach out to you and inform you before the deadline.

c. You are strongly encouraged not to schedule last minute, and put pressure on me to expedite edits – I will charge a fee if I am not able to freely complete the project at my pace.


5. Studio reservations are made after the deposit is paid.

a. Studio availability is based on a first come first served basis.

b. There is an hourly fee for rental, and there will be a charge for the next hour if we go over time.

a. All costs for travel to a booked event or shoot are to be paid by the client.

Gas/Toll/Airfare/Uber or Lyft

Hotel accommodations for out of state and multi-day events

In-town transportation, if out of state via rental or Uber/Lyft.


7. If additional equipment is necessary to accomplish the goal of the project, the client will be responsible to cover the cost of acquiring the necessary equipment and tools.

8. Edits – Due to time constraints, there is a current limit of 3 edits per look or outfit

c. You are entitled to up to 3 free revisions.

a. Clients are strongly encouraged to practice their poses or at least have a plan of action ahead of the shoot.
