Session fee. The session fee pays for makeup & hair artist as well as 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 booking. Session fees are non-refundable, however we accept a one time rescheduling a maximum of 7 days before your session date. Payment for any product orders shall be submitted to the Photographer at time of reveal/ordering session.
Personal Cameras. Personal cameras are not allowed in studio during your session. Please refrain from taking phone images or video recording. 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.
Reveal & Ordering Appointment. You will view your portraits at a personally attended reveal session. You will be asked to order at this time. Please make sure all decision makers are present. Clients who cannot make a decision about products or images during their viewing appointment may schedule an additional ordering appointment for a £49 fee. Once your order is placed in-person, your ordered digital images will be uploaded to an online storage where you can download your files as well as print products from them. Due to the downloadable nature of this content, once files are removed from the studio the sale is final and non-refundable. We do NOT offer online galleries for ordering. Digital files cannot be released outside the studio until full payment is made.
Payments. Due to the custom nature of the work, payment for any wall art or additional folio boxes must be placed in full and is subject to a 50% cancellation fee should you change your mind about an order after it is placed. Once an order is sent to the lab or digital files are submitted to the client either by USB or electronic transfer, the order is deemed non-refundable. Payments may be made cash, Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, Apple Pay and Android Pay. PayPal Credit payment is also available.
Product Delivery . Folio box with standard 7×10 matted prints can be collected on the day of your reveal & ordering appointment. Any additional 7×10 prints and boxes will require 7 – 10 days for production and shipping. Please allow 4 weeks for any wall art orders to be completed. Your portraits are an investment and an heirloom that should not be rushed.
All ordered images are kept on file for a period of 1 year. Un-ordered images are removed from our archives after 30 days. Re-orders placed more than 30 days after the preview appointment, require a minimum £199 re-order.

Artistic rights. While Renata does capture many images during your session, you will see only 20 – 30 images selected by her, the artist, for previewing. She carefully renders each image to ensure maximum artistry and technical excellence. Images with eyes closed, heads turned, duplicates, etc. will not be shown and are removed from our archives permanently after the artist rendering is complete. Requests for additional image re-touching will be honoured at a £49 per hour retouching fee and at the discretion of the artist. Re-touching will be performed to the artists desired outcome and is considered the final version. Artist will not perform any re-touching she does see as fit for the image.
Creative Control. The Photographer retains creative control of the session. This control is including, but not limited to, the adjustment of hair, makeup, jewellery, clothing, and clothing straps.
