* A. Session Fees
Client agrees to pay photographer a 50% non refundable deposit at the time of booking to secure their appointment date and time. This is a non- refundable retainer fee that goes toward your session. The remaining balance is due at the start of the session. Your session fee covers the time and talent of photographer and creative editing of images, as determined by the photographer, and images to be downloaded (amount determined by package) by client via dropbox.com. Images are available on a disc (or portable USB) for additional charge. Please be sure to review all pricing details. Pricing information can be found on the "pricing" page at www.blairheagerty.com. There are no refunds or exchanges of any kind due to the custom nature of ‘for hire’ photography.
* B. Rescheduling/ Canceling
If an illness or situation prevents a photo session from taking place, client may reschedule their session at least 24 hours prior to their shoot without penalty. Should client fail to give 24 hours notice, or decide to completely cancel the shoot, this session fee is forfeited and will not be refunded. In the unlikely event of illness, weather, equipment malfunction, or other circumstances beyond her control, Photographer reserves the right to reschedule or cancel (In this case, your session deposit fee will be refunded).
* C. Re-shoots / Refunds
Re-shoots are determined at the discretion of the photographer. There are no refunds (aside from exception mentioned above).
* D. Archive
After six months, 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. Photographer is not responsible for loss or damage to the digital files due to circumstances beyond photographer’s control.
* E. Payment
All payments are due in full unless payment arrangements have been made. 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.
* F. Damage
Photographer is not responsible for the damage of portraits after delivery to client, including damage caused during transit by US mail. Client assumes all responsibility for the safety of all portraits upon receipt.
* G. Your Session
Please be prompt for your session. Arriving late to your appointment will result in lost session time. If you are running late, please let me know. Your session may need to be rescheduled if you arrive over 30 minutes after our scheduled start time. If you fail to show for your scheduled appointment or your session has to be rescheduled due to tardiness, an additional $50 deposit will be required to reschedule.
If you have not already, please review samples of my work to make sure that my style of photography and editing is a good fit for you (these can be seen on my website at www.blairheagerty.com). When you book with me, you are giving me full reign over session styling and artistic editing of photos. I will be choosing the best of the images to edit and present to you so if you see anything that you don’t care for during the session, please speak up.
