Photographer has the right to reschedule due to illness, weather, equipment malfunction, or any other circumstances beyond their control. Sessions will be rescheduled at the photographer’s earliest convenience. Please note: when arriving to your session, please be on time. Any amount of time you’re late, will come out of your session. ((15 minutes late to a 60 minute session now makes your session 45 minutes.))
4. Re-shoots / Refunds
Re-shoots, in their rarity, are determined at the discretion of the photographer. Re-shoots or refunds will not be given simply for poor choices of clothing, hair or weather related issues, misbehaved children, or by not following the recommendations of the photographer. Due to inclement weather, sessions will be rescheduled at the photographer’s earliest convenience.
Albums are to be downloaded within 2 weeks of receiving your digital gallery. They will be removed at that time. There is a $25 fee to have them redone. All images may be removed from photographer’s hard-drive after six months. Photographer is not responsible for loss or damage to the digital files due to circumstances beyond photographer’s control. Please be sure to back up your images to your own external hard drive, flash drive, or disc.
Apart from the session fee, all remaining moneys owed are due no later than one week prior to the session. A $50 late fee will be added for payments not made in a timely manner.
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.
8. Social Media
The photographs that the photographer has taken of myself and/or my minor child may be used on social media sites for use in advertising.
Photographer is not responsible for any injuries inflicted upon any participating parties. Client(s) will be responsible for their children and for themselves and release photographer from any claims against their person or their business.
10. Copyright & Penalty
Mandy Stewart Photography owns all copyrights to the images created during sessions. A print release is given with each session to print for personal use but the images are not to be edited or altered in any way. Please note – this includes, but it not limited to, Instagram filters.
Photographer has the right to edit all images as she feels looks best. All images will be given in color, and any images that have similar duplicates will be given in black and white. Soft touch ups will be made upon the photographer’s discretion. Any additional editing requests beyond what is given in the finalized gallery will be done at an additional charge of $15 per image. This will also cause a delay in receiving those images, as there are other sessions to be completed as well.
Note from Mandy: I work hard to create these images. I know you want to share them on your own social media pages, which is why I share sneak peeks on my Facebook business page. Therefore, I simply ask that you not right click, copy+paste/drag+drop, but rather share the link to my original post. Once you have received your images, they are not to be altered in anyway, including but not limited to, Instagram filters.
