We are pleased that you have selected Amanda Valentine Photography for your studio or on lo- cation photography services. Amanda Valentine Photography is honored to photograph you and your family in our unique artistic style. This letter sets forth the terms and conditions of our engagement.
Session Fee is $350.00
• A non-refundable session fee of $175.00 is due on the date that your session is first scheduled. Amanda Valentine PHOTOGRAPHY SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO CANCEL YOUR SESSION DATE OR TO GIVE IT TO ANOTHER CLIENT IF IT DOES NOT RECEIVE THE SESSION FEE one week before YOUR SESSION IS SCHEDULED. The fee shall be good for services performed on the originally scheduled date. In the event that you need to re-schedule that date, pricing and our availability to provide services on such date will be reviewed. In the event of a cancelation, your session fee will be honored for one year. Amanda Valentine Photography makes no guarantee that it will be able to provide services or the pricing above for any re-scheduled session.
• Only the person being photographed may attend the session; provided, however, that in the case of children and infants, up to 2 parents may also attend. Parents attending sessions are kindly asked to adhere to any instructions from the photographer and to refrain from interfering with the photographer’s work. Personal assistance, nanies, caregivers, friends and siblings may not attend sessions unless they are being photographed. ABSOLUTELY NO PHOTOGRAPHIC, VIDEO, FILM, DIGITAL, TAPE, CASSETTE, OR RECORDING DEVICES OF ANY KIND ARE PERMITTED DURING A SESSION.
• Amanda Valentine Photography reserves the right to terminate any session due to any failure of the client to adhere to the requirements set forth in this Agreement or if the model(s) being photographed are unwilling to be photographed or if anyone in the session is behaving in a manner that the photographer dems inappropriate or inconsistent with the purposes of the session. In the event of any such termination, Amanda Valentine Photography may offer to schedule a new session in its soled indiscretion; provided, however, that it is under no obligation to do so. Under no circumstances will the session fee be refunded.
• Parties being photographed must be dressed, made up and prepared at the exact designated start time. Sessions will begin and end promptly as scheduled. Additional photographer and studio time may be purchased in half-hour increments for $75 per half-hour (photographer availability and schedule permit ting). Photographer/ Owner captures the “esence” of your children; the finer details (combed hair, clean faces, jewelry etc.) are the parents’ responsibility. Removing these items before the session will be much simpler and more cost effective for the client.
• We offer light retouching services. Additional time will be billed at a rate of $75.00 per hour. (Removal of jewelry, wrinkles, tan-lines, etc…)
• ALL PRINTS MUST BE PAID FOR IN FULL. ALL SUCH PAYMENTS ARE FINAL AND ARE NOT REFUNDABLE. It is recommended that you prepare lists of the types and quantities of prints that you expect to order. While you are free to add items to your order, any removal of items in this order, once you have left the studio, will incur a $75.00 fee which will be billed at the time your portraits arrive. After your images have been delivered, all edited images will be available for download for six months and unedited images will be purged. Images can be unarchived for $300.00.
• You will be notified when your images are ready for download, at that time, you will be provided with a weblink to download. While we anticipate that images will be ready in approximately 2-3 weeks, Amanda Valentine Photography makes no guarantee in this regard. Rush orders can be placed for an additional charge of $150.
