Session Terms & Conditions
All clients are required to sign my permission form and contact for my records. It has been put in place so you know exactly what a photographic session entails and to ensure that I am able to deliver to your expectations. Please read all information and please keep a copy for yourselves. If you have any questions, please contact me before the session date. Thank you.
The Creative Session FEE – Investment
Creative Session is £95, for newborn sessions it costs £120. The session fee is required on booking. The fee covers the photographic session in your home, my home studio or on location for the agreed duration and guarantees the time and date allotted for you. Should payment not be received in this time frame, Lorna reserves the right to offer the date and time to another client. This fee does not include any digital files or presentation products which can be purchased separately following the session. There is a minimum product order of £250.00, this can be paid at booking with the session fee or on the day of the session.
On location, the client is responsible for any additional fees and costs related to location choice (admission fees, parking etc.). Travel up to 25 miles (round trip) from CF72 area is included. Time and travel above this will charged at 50p per mile and can be paid during booking.
The fee is not refundable in the case of cancellation by the client.
If someone becomes ill, please call as soon as possible to reschedule. Lorna allows for sessions to be rescheduled twice with 48 hours notice at no extra cost.
An additional charge of £35 rescheduling with less than 48 hours notice will incur. No shows forfeit the deposit. Rescheduled dates must be within 30 days of original session date.
In the unlikely event that Lorna is unable to perform due to fire, an act of god, illness or accident or any cause beyond her control, the client session fee will be returned and the client will have no further liability with respect to the contract. This limitation on liability shall also apply in the event that photographic materials are damaged in processing, lost through camera or media malfunction, lost in the mail or otherwise lost or damaged without fault on the part of Photography by Lorna (hereinafter PBL). Other cameras, including video cameras, are not allowed at the session due to copyright reasons, and also this can be a huge distraction to all involved in the session.
PBL is not liable for any accident or damage made by yourselves or your children during the session. Please note that your children remain your sole responsibility for the duration of the session.
Proofing & Ordering
Lorna will arrange to present you with your edited proofs (minimum of 15 images) within 2 weeks of your session. At this time you will be able to view product samples and decide on your favourites.
Please be prepared to place your main wall art order at this stage. Following your ordering session, an online gallery will be launched. This gallery will be hosted for 4 days and will allow you, friends and family to view the images and make further orders. Republishing the gallery after 4 days can be arranged at a small cost of £15.00, the gallery is available for 4 extra days after that.
Prints & Products.
All images from your session will be kept on file for one month following the expiry date of your online proofing gallery, after which time they will be deleted from my system.
All ordered images will be held on file allowing you to order more images in the future. Full payment is required at the time of ordering and orders can not be processed until payment is received. Allow 2 – 3 weeks for your orders to arrive from time of payment. Additional time may be needed for large artworks such as canvases and albums etc. Please inspect your images very carefully in your gallery. Once images and products are ordered they may not be returned. All sales are final and non-returnable.
Changes & Edits
If you have a request for a small change to an image, please let me know when you place your order. I can address minor changes at no extra cost, but more involved requests will be billed at £25 per hour. I will inform you of the estimated duration of work. Payment must be received in advance of extra work carried out.
Changes to design work in photo albums can be made. You may choose colour, text, and exchange an image for free, in total you can make up to 3 small changes to that design. Additional changes will be charged at £25 per hour. Once the requested changes are made they are final. Full payment of product and changes would be required at the time of ordering.
Handle your portraits with extreme care. Damage incurred as a result of improper handling, framing or hanging is the responsibility of the client. You have decided to invest in the services of PBL to capture you and your family based on viewing samples of her work. Each session is different therefore Lorna may be unable to capture certain shots, which may be requested.
Although PBL uses high-quality materials and printers, please be aware that colour dyes used in photographic products may fade or discolour over time due to the inherent qualities of dyes. This agreement releases PBL from any liability, for any claims whatsoever based on fading or discolouring due to such inherent qualities.
Pricing is subject to change at any time. Pricing is locked in at the time of booking and will be honoured for 30 days from the session date providing session fee is paid at the time of booking.
If PBL feels that your portrait needs cannot be met, your session deposit will be returned and another photographer recommended. If PBL feels that the client has breached any points outlined in this client agreement, session deposit will not be returned.
