Session fees are payable at time of booking and are non-refundable. Once your session fee has been received, your booking will be secured in the diary.
In the event of cancellation, I will gladly re-schedule your session if notice of 24 hours is given. Cancellations do have an impact on my diary, therefore, session fees are non-refundable, but can be used towards a rescheduled session in the event of an emergency with 24 hours notice given. If the photographer is unable to perform to the guidelines of this contract due to a fire, flood or other casualty, act of God, or other cause beyond control of the parties, or due to grave illness of the photographer, then all fees paid by the client will be returned in full. Trish Thompson Photography is not liable for costs in excess of the amount the client has paid. This limitation of liability will also apply in the event that digital images are lost through camera malfunction, stolen, damaged in processing or otherwise damaged or lost without fault of Trish Thompson Photography.
Every effort will be made to provide the number of images specified in your package, however this may not always be possible due to the willingness and unpredictability of subjects. Trish Thompson Photography will use its own judgement regarding the style and artistic input in the production of pictures. This includes poses and number of images taken. Due to the unpredictability of babies and children it may not be possible to capture all the pictures requested, or images to the clients’ full expectations. In the event of uncooperative children, for any reason, this may mean that I may not be able to capture any, or all the images the Client may have requested or expected. The Client is responsible for all children at all sessions. In the event that images are damaged or lost through camera or computer malfunction Trish Thompson Photography will re-take the session whenever possible or refund the cost of the session fee if this is not possible.
