PHOTOSHOOT SESSION

Only the person being photographed may attend the session; provided, however, that in the case of children and infants, up to 2 parents may also attend. If you wish bring someone along with you please discuss first with ADB Imagery. Parents attending sessions are kindly asked to adhere to any instructions from the photographer and to refrain from interfering with the photographer’s work. Personal assistants, nannies, caregivers, friends and siblings may not attend sessions unless they are being photographed or previously agreed upon with ADB Imagery. ABSOLUTELY NO PHOTOGRAPHIC, VIDEO, FILM, DIGITAL, TAPE, CASSETTE, OR RECORDING DEVICES OF ANY KIND ARE PERMITTED DURING A SESSION.

ADB Imagery reserves the right to terminate any session due to any failure of the client to adhere to the requirements set forth in these terms or if the model(s) being photographed are unwilling to be photographed or if anyone in the session is behaving in a manner that the photographer deems inappropriate or inconsistent with the purposes of the session. In the event of any such termination, ADB Imagery may offer to schedule a new session in its sole discretion; provided, however, that it is under no obligation to do so. Under no circumstances will the session fee be refunded.

Parties being photographed must be dressed, made up and prepared at the exact designated start time. Sessions will begin and end promptly as scheduled. Additional photographer and studio time may be purchased in half-hour increments for $75 per half-hour (photographer availability and schedule permitting). Photographer/Owner captures the “essence” of your children; the finer details (combed hair, clean faces, jewelry etc.) are the parents’ responsibility. Removing these items before the session will be much simpler and more cost effective for the client.

Client agrees to be responsible for any damage occurring to any of ADB Imagery’s equipment or property during or as a result of the event or the actions of any session attendees, or as a result of any condition or occurrence at an on-location session which results in damage, other than damage which results solely from Your Name Photography’s negligence.

 

VIEWING / PURCHASING SESSION

All photoshoots include a follow up appointment to view and purchase your images after your photo shoot session. If, at the time of the viewing/ purchasing session you are unable to make a decision and require another appointment, the second viewing/purchasing session will attract a fee of $150.00 to cover our time and expenses. Choose carefully as we do not refund and there is no cooling off period for purchases. As our artwork is uniquely created for you, and you have the opportunity to view your images before making a purchasing decision; we do not allow you to change your order. Once the order agreement has been signed it is part of our process to immediately design, create and finish your artworks. Refunds are not available where a purchase contract is in place, deposits or full payment have been made and a client changes their mind. All final images/artwork will be delivered to the client once payments have been paid in full. No RAW or unedited images will be made available for viewing. Clients will have the opportunity to request special editing/retouching on purchased images at their viewing at no additional cost. Any retouching requests made after the Clients viewing will incur additional retouching fees.

 

CREATIVE CONTROL | REFUSAL OF SERVICE

We reserve the right to refuse to produce images of certain sizes or combinations of sizes if we believe such images would reflect on the reputation of ADB Imagery as a professional studio.
