Deposits & Payments: A deposit of £100 is payable in order to book the session and confirm the date unless other arrangements have been made. The date remains available to other clients until payment has been received. The deposit is non refundable in the case of cancellation and the remainder of the package payment is due when you've decided which package to go for and before your order is processed. Payments can be made in cash or by electronic bank transfer. Details available on request. I do not combine orders so if you are having a maternity session and a newborn session you would need to place your order for each session individually. Please note the minimum purchase necessary for each session on the pricing page.
Changing of Session Dates: Session dates can be moved for newborns when they don't arrive on the due date, new session dates are subject to availability.
Free product included in the session fee: The free storyboard design that is included with your session will be in the form of a digital file. You have printing rights on this storyboard design and you are welcome to have it printed as many times as you would like. The design will be suitable for a 7x5 inch print size only. The storyboard will contain a maximum of 5 images. The free storyboard will be one of those published on your online photo gallery.
