Thank you for choosing Little Treasures Photography! Each of our clients are valuable to us. We want to make your photography experience as easy as possible and to make it fair to our clients as well as ourselves, we enforce the following studio policies for all of our sessions.
Various week days and weekend sessions based on my availability. Sessions are by appointment only.
The session fee includes the photographer's time and talent, phone consultation to help you plan your session, basic retouching, in person viewing and ordering session. It only includes the products or digitals images listed in the summary of the package that you chose. The retainer fee is due at the time your appointment is made. If the client does not show up to the session or does not cancel their session within 24 hours, the $200 retainer fee will be not be refunded. However, if you reschedule your appointment within a month of cancellation, it may be applied towards that new session.
Cancellation and rescheduling
If you need to reschedule your session due to sickness, injury or a scheduling conflict, please contact us at least 48 hours prior to your session. We understand that sometimes "life happens" and we get sick or other unexpected events pop up at the most inconvenient times. No need to worry, just give us a call and we will gladly reschedule your session at our earliest available date.
Respectfully, we also reserve the right to reschedule a session due to illness, emergency, death in the family, inclement weather and other unforeseen events beyond our control. We will be sure to inform you of any such occurrences as soon as possible and will reschedule your session in the earliest date available.
We accept cash, Paypal and credit card payments. Sales tax will be applied to all appropriate sales.
Since we want to give each client our full attention as well as their full amount of time, we ask that you please be on time. If you are over 15 minutes late for your scheduled time, Little Treasures Photography reserves the right to cancel your session.
Portrait viewing session
A single reveal session in the studio will be scheduled for viewing your portraits. The purpose of the viewing session is to make your purchasing decision so please plan to bring all the people involved in this decision. We have a variety of great products and ways for you to enjoy and share your images. We will guide you through the process and help with any questions and make suggestions for displaying your portraits.
Orders are to be placed at the time of the viewing session and payments are due at the time of ordering. A payment plan will be available if necessary. Prints and products will not be ordered until final payment is received.
A high resolution online gallery will be available for 30 days once your paid ordering session has taken place. You may share this gallery with family and friends. Please note there is a $25 fee for re-posting the gallery once it has expired.
We make every effort to ensure complete satisfaction. The studio takes the utmost care with respect to the exposure, development and delivery of photographic products and services ordered. Because of the uniqueness of custom portraiture and products, all sales are final. However, if the studio fails to comply with the terms of this contract due to any event or act outside the control of the studio, the studio’s liability is limited to the refund of the session fee. Defects in workmanship will be promptly corrected.
Please allow 3-4 weeks for your orders to be completed.
Images that you purchase are archived for your future purchase or for re-prints for 2 years from the date of your session. Images that are NOT purchased are only kept for 90 days from the date of your session. After this 90 day period, your images will no longer be available.
Prices are subject to change without notice unless session fee has been paid, then those prices will be locked in.
Little Treasures Photography owns the copyright to all images. The studio also reserves the right to use negatives and/or reproductions for purposes of display, exhibitions, contests and other purposes, unless otherwise specifically stated within your contract. There is a model release included on the contract provided to you prior to your session. Negatives and previews remain the property of the studio, and the studio has the exclusive right to make additional reproductions from them for the client.
It is illegal to copy or reproduce these photographs elsewhere without the photographer’s permission, and violators of this Federal Law will be subject to its civil and criminal penalties. If digital images are purchased, you will receive a copyright release. Even with a copyright release, you are not allowed to alter images in any form.
All clients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
We do NOT allow outside camera/video to be brought into the studio as well as location sessions.
My goal as a professional photographer is to make you excited and happy with your portaits. There is no charge for re-shoots due to technical issues (equipment malfunction, computer malfunction, etc). However, due to the creative nature of what we do, we cannot offer free re-shoots for any reason including dissatisfaction of clothing, facial expressions, hair, wind or other items beyond our control. In the event you would like to schedule another session due to one of the reasons above, we will offer a NEW session at 1/2 price and must be scheduled within two weeks of viewing your session.
Little Treasures Photography is committed to your privacy. Information collected from clients in person, over the phone, in emails or through our website is strictly confidential. We will not sell or exchange names or any other personally identifiable information about our clients with third parties.
