SESSION POLICY

PLEASE READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL OF MAVEN PORTRAITS' POLICIES BELOW BEFORE BOOKING

 

 

 

 

BOOKING & PAYMENT:

Photo session must be scheduled at least 48 hours ahead of time.

Payment is due upon booking. Due to custom nature of photography, there will be no refunds but in case of cancellation it will be use towards your rescheduled session. If no payment is received, the photographer will not be expected to attend said session.

Travel fee will be included for locations over 10-15 miles of Hazleton PA. Clients are responsible for any entrance fee, parking, permits etc depending on location.

We accept cash, check, Paypal & credit card. Returned checks are subject to a $50.00 returned check fee.

 

CANCELLATION

With a minimum of 24 hours prior notice, photo session maybe rescheduled one time for no extra fee.

If clients cancel their appointment on session day there will be $40 cancellation fee.

If clients don't call at all and don't show up for their session, they will indefinitely lose the full session fee. No exceptions!

 

SESSION TIME/COOPERATION/NO SHOWS:

Photo session starts on time. If clients are late, the session will still end at scheduled time. (Example: Session is scheduled for 1 pm to 2pm, if clients come later than 1pm it will still end at 2pm). If there are no other sessions scheduled after, clients may add more hours to their session for $50/extra half hour.

For outdoor photo session, since we're relying solely on sunlight for main light source session will only be scheduled 1 hour before sunset (golden hour) when the sunlight is best. Because of limited time frame Maven Portraits will wait 15 minutes before leaving the location. If clients are over 15 minutes late, the session is considered cancelled and clients will lose their whole retainer.

Photographer is not responsible if Client and/or key individuals fail to appear or cooperate during portrait sessions, or for missed images due to clients lack of communication.

No Cameras/Cell phones, or other photographic, or recording devices are allowed during the sessions. This is very distracting to the subjects and the photographer. Please use cell phones in different area then where sessions are being held.
