PHOTOGRAPHY CONTRACT

Terms and conditions

Session fee is $175 and pay is only for the photographer's time and artistic vision during the session.

Your session fee includes an initial consultation via phone, email or in person, and approximately one hour of coverage on day of session. It also includes images in an online password-protected gallery for viewing and ordering purposes once all post-processing is completed.

Print prices are separate from the session fee.

There is a $500 minimum order requirement with the commitment of the "original experience" session.

A re-hosting fee of $25 will be applied for each additional day required. 

You are encouraged to share your gallery with family and/or friends for viewing. Orders may be placed either online, through the proofing gallery, or directly through me.
