Where I hold and store information about you
You would have communicated with me via email, Facebook, Instagram or by phone to inquire about my services. To service you the best I can, I need to know who you are, how to contact you and on hiring me, I will ask details about you and your baby or children including their ages. Your information is kept on my password encrypted computer and is not shared with anyone. I will use your information to contact you prior to the shoot to discuss and confirm details and will hold onto it until you have chosen, paid for and received your images. After this, I may delete your contact details or you can opt-in to receive information on any future promotions. At any time after opting in you can request that your contact details are deleted and they will be. To access a private gallery of images online, I will email you a link & password.
Storing Your Images
Your images are recorded at the shoot on a memory card inside the camera. To process these raw images I transfer them to a hard drive which is linked to my password encrypted computer. They are backed up onto another second hard drive for protection. I select a portion of the images and edit them, the rest are deleted.
Once you have chosen and paid for your product I will store the edited jpegs for safekeeping should you need a reprint in the future and for me to use for marketing. I do not guarantee back up of your chosen jpegs after 5 years, please back up your purchased digital copies in several places.
I will contact you it will be about your photo session, via text email, IM, or phone. Your details are kept on 17hats, a system created for photographers to help with workflow. Should I get in touch directly regarding promotions, you will be invited to be added, rather than added automatically.
Use of Images: Facebook, Instagram, Website
Before your session, you can access my standard client agreement form online and also you will have a copy sent in an email. On session day. I will ask you to sign a copy of the agreement and this includes permission to use your images for marketing, including my website, Instagram or Facebook. An amendment can be made to this form, should you prefer not to share some or all your images publicly. You can opt out at any time but remember that images posted on social media platforms, copied and shared by others may still be accessible. To change your permissions please inform me via email
Promotional Model Calls & Competition Winners
Competition winners or model calls that choose to opt out of images being used for marketing purposes will be charged the appropriate session/package fee and costs of any products received.
If you have any questions please ask.
