Read carefully. These terms will apply to all services provided by L&I.T Photography to you, the customer. We will not accept any variation to these terms and conditions unless specifically agreed upon in writing by L&I.T Photography. By making a booking you have agreed to these terms and conditions in full.
The standard $50 booking fee secures the date, time and services of L&I.T Photography and is nonrefundable in the event of client cancellation, it being the agreed loss suffered by the photographer due to cancellation. The booking fee will be subtracted from the final payment amount, which must be received at the end of the photo session.
For best results, newborn sessions should be scheduled within 2-3 days of birth. It is the responsibility of the client to contact the photographer as soon as possible after the birth to schedule the session.
Should the client opt to reschedule a photo session due to weather, illness, or other personal conflict; dates and times are subject to the photographer’s availability.
All sessions must give 72 hours notice to reschedule. A session must be rescheduled within one month of the original session date, with the exception of newborn sessions those must be rescheduled within one week of the original session date, or will be considered a cancellation and deposit will be applied.
Display and Model Release
L&I.T Photography may use any images included in this contract in their web site, portfolio, social media, blogs, literature, display areas, exhibitions, competitions, advertising or commercially. Discretion will be used in selecting images displayed publicly. Client will not be compensated for any usage described above. L&I.T Photography will not sell these images to any third party without additional consent from you but L&I.T Photography does work with vendors and does allow vendors to use images with their products in them on their website and social media.
Due to the weather, willingness of subjects or mood of the subject it may not be possible to capture all of the images requested.
If subjects are unwilling or uncooperative the photographer will not be held responsible. L&I.T Photography will do the best to capture your child's personality whether it be posed or un-posed moments. However, it is the ultimately the parent’s responsibility to keep your children under control during the session. If your child chooses to constantly act up or be disrespectful, is uncooperative, will not stay in the photo area, or is crying the entire time, we may have no other choice but to stop the session. L&I.T Photography, will however put forth every reasonable effort to finish a session. If the session is stopped due to this reason, there will be no refunds. If the gallery cannot be built out of any of the shots taken during the session, L&I.T Photography reserves the sole right to decide if the session will be rescheduled. The reason for no refund is because this spot was reserved for you and you alone. Therefore, L&I.T Photography is unable to book any other appointments during the time you reserved. In the case that you will need to re-book due to an uncooperative child, and the session was not decided for rescheduling by L&I.T Photography, there will also be the standard $50 rescheduling fee due to the fact that everything needs to be set back up for your session and reserve another appointment date for you.
Your online gallery link will be e-mailed to you within 2-3 weeks of your session. Images can be accessed by a private username and password provided by L&I.T Photography. After the gallery was delivered, you have 14 days to make your selection that you want thoroughly edited. You are more than welcome to purchase additional edits for $20/edit. If there are more images in your selected folder, when you submit, than your package came with we will send you an invoice to the registered email for the additional edits. Once the invoice is paid then we will put your name on the editing list. We do not touch your gallery, or consider the favorites submitted until all invoices are paid. If after 14 days no images were chosen for further editing, we take it that you are happy with your gallery and we no longer accept submissions. The selected thorough edits will be delivered in about 3-4 weeks after submission. After the thorough edits are uploaded to your gallery the gallery will be viewable and downloadable for 30 days. After this we don’t guarantee that we will still have backups of your images. If you need them reuploaded and we have them, there is a $50 unarchive/reupload fee that we charge.
