policies and procedures
Please read before booking to ensure you get the most out of your shoot.
To get the most out of your photoshoot, please ensure that the property is ready before we arrive on site. The home should be as clean and decluttered as possible— less is more, so consider removing excess decor or family photos if possible. Other preparations include opening and raising blinds as desired, turning lights on, turning fans off, and removing cars from the garage or driveway. We don’t mind helping with minor adjustments to improve a shot, but if you need other assistance moving large furniture, rugs, etc. please plan accordingly.
We do offer sky replacements in all photo packages, so a cloudy sky will not necessarily affect the outcome of your photos. BUT in the event of unfavorable weather during the time of your photoshoot, you may opt to reschedule if you prefer. Please reach out to us asap, and we will find another day and time for your shoot.
Cancellations made within less than 24 hours of your appointment may be subject to a $50 cancellation fee, with the exception of those due to unforeseen weather conditions.
Rates include travel within 35 miles and time spent on location shooting (1-3 hours depending on size of home/property or services requested). Properties outside of this 35 mile radius are subject to a travel fee of $0.60/mile for the total distance; this accounts not just for mileage, but also time spent traveling to and from the location.
Payment is due at or before the time of the shoot, unless specified otherwise. I accept cash, check, Venmo, or Square payments (subject to a 3% service fee). Failure to pay voids any usage rights for any media provided.
In the unlikely event of loss of media before delivery, we will refund you any payments received for said media.
All Photographs shall be the sole and exclusive property of the Photographer, including but not limited to all copyrights and other intellectual property rights therein, in perpetuity. All rights not expressly granted herein shall be reserved by the Photographer. Modification of Photographs and/or incorporation of Photographs in any layout, concept, reproduction, or publication shall not constitute a Joint Work. Photographer shall have the sole power to enforce its copyrights and any other intellectual property, including without limitation all registration, renewal, and reversion rights, and the right to register and sue to enforce such rights against infringers.
