Reproduction Rights: In accordance with Federal Law no reproduction rights are granted for any image provided. However, in the event that you receive or purchase digital files, they may only be reproduced for personal use and never sold or re-licensed.
Release of Unedited Files: It is our policy that we do not release unedited or RAW photos due to the unique nature imbedded data that each picture contains as well as the unique properties of each individual photo. Before you are shown pictures from your session, each picture is selected for composition, color, focus, among other creative elements, then edited so that you may enjoy your photos for its maximum potential. Releasing RAW or unedited photos is not an industry standard as it has the potential to harm or diminish our brand as we can't guarantee the quality of the output.
Orders: Because of the uniqueness of your photos, all orders are final when placed. Defects in workmanship will be promptly corrected. Additional costs may be incurred should you change your mind about which photo(s) you want to have after those photos have been produced. If a photograph becomes damaged once you have taken possession, we will gladly offer a replacement for an additional cost.
Payment: We accept all major credit cards including Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express, as well as cash. Payment is due in full at the time of your session.
Retouching & Style: We will do our best to accommodate your blemish removal and other retouching requests. Some requests are not possible and others may be so complex that an additional fee is required. In the case of all toning, retouching and other adjustments, please be aware that everything we create is custom printed and in doing so, variances are a normal part of the process. When in doubt we will rely on our professional experience to create what we believe is the best presentation of any given image.
Discounted sessions, sessions benefiting charity, and free sessions are not eligible for photo credits towards the purchase of prints.
