Images will be available for viewing approximately 2-4 weeks following your session date. The online gallery/shopping cart will be live for 10 calendar days. All orders must be placed and paid in full within 10 days of the post date. Due to the nature of custom photography, all sales are final.

Please allow 2-4 weeks after the order is placed to receive print orders. Specialty products may take 4-6 weeks to receive.

Single digital files can be purchased for $60 each AFTER a $175 minimum purchase requirement is met. All digital files purchased include a print release.

8. Truth in Photography Clause
Photography is an artistic interpretation of what a photographer sees when taking a photograph. The interpretation includes the subjects, the posing, the location available and the lighting available at the time of the session. There needs to be a level of trust between the photographer and the subject(s) for the end result to be pleasing to the subject and the photographer. If any party or parties in your session are unwilling to be open to posing or expression suggestions, it is best to discuss this with your photographer before the session begins.
