terms & conditions
here you will find more detail regarding my policies & best practices for photography sessions.
a note about locations
i recommend choosing locations that are very versatile. for the baltimore area, i highly recommend historic fells point, the inner harbor, and downtown. from there, you can get a range of images from historic cobble stone streets to an urban oasis. for annapolis, i firmly believe you cannot go wrong with historic downtown and the naval academy. there are also a ton of natural locations including parks, beaches, farms, and trails within the DMV that are absolutely stunning for any session.
any location that is further than 45 minutes from annapolis is subject to a $20 travel fee payable at the time of your session.
for packages that include multiple locations, they must be within 25 minutes of each other. note that travel time does cut into your session time. if you need to add time to your session each additional 30 minutes is $15.
1-2 weeks after your session, you will receive an image gallery via Pixieset - an easy & free service that lets you download all your images for free and purchase prints if you choose to do so. feel free to forward your images to family & friends, and post on social media once you download your images! just remember to tag me when you post :)
booking & paying for your session
i require a 50% deposit to secure your session date & time.
if the weather is crazy/act of God/i am sick/etc, you can put your deposit toward a re-schedule or you can have it refunded. however, if you need to cancel less than one-week before or you don’t show up to the session, the deposit will not be refunded.
the purpose of the deposit is to lock in your date & time. if you cancel last minute, i could have booked someone else during that period.
i do not write anything down in my calendar until the deposit has been paid, making your desired time slot up for grabs. nothing is booked until the deposit has been paid. the other half & travel fee is due the morning of your session via venmo, paypal or cash/check.
by hiring me as your photographer, you agree to not edit or alter any images. this is a standard practice within the industry and one that should be respected. if you are unsatisfied with the outcome of your images, please contact me directly before fixing them on your own. i am more than happy to work with you to create your desired final product.
