Studio Policies & Terms •The session fee pays for the time and talent of the photographer and for your in- person viewing appointment. It does not include any finished portraits. The session fee is due at the time of your portrait session. Session fees are non-refundable, however with 48 hours notice it can be rescheduled in case of an emergency. •If you have a sick child on the day of the session please call to reschedule. If you try to keep the appointment, We will most likely request that you reschedule if we notice your child is sick. Sick or uncomfortable children do not like to be photographed and we know that you will not love your portraits nearly as much as if he or she was in good health. •If you have or are having a boy, please DO NOT CIRCUMCISE your child before your session. We will be swaddling your baby tightly while he is naked, and moving him from one position to another constantly during the session. This is very painful for a child who has just been circumcised. We will NOT photograph a newborn who has been circumcised less than 6 days prior to the session.•Please bring only the subjects to be photographed to the session. This is especially important with pets and kids, as Shari will need their full attention on her rather than looking at other members of the family. Of course parents are always welcome! •Personal cameras are not allowed in studio during your session. Please refrain from taking I-phone images or video taping. We work very hard to ensure your session is captured artistically and creatively. We ask that you respect our livelihood and refrain from taking photographs of what we are creating.•You agree to hold harmless, Shari Brownlee, her representatives, employees and Brownlee’s Portrait Cottage, from any dispute in the event you become injured during your session or while on the studio premises. Brownlee’s Portrait Cottage and its representatives will not be held liable for any injury incurred by you or your family, or any damage to your property during the photo session or while on studio premises.•You will view your portraits at a personally attended slideshow. You will be asked to order at this time. Please make sure all decision makers are present, as additional ordering appointments incur a $100 fee.
It is illegal to copy or reproduce our photographs in any manner without our permission and violators of this Federal Law will be subject to its civil and criminal penalties. Please understand, the photographer wishes to maintain complete control over the print quality, finishes and presentation of the images and any reproduction outside of the studio may lower the quality of the image and scar our reputation for providing superior portraits.
