***Please note our Terms and Policies on our website. This includes information regarding our booking, cancellation and ordering policies. As well, please note the following:
Shipping costs are not included in the above costs. The total cost for shipping the prints and book add on is $25. The client’s package will be shipped to the address on file. If the mailing address should change at all, please contact us with a new address so that we may update it. Lori Dorman Photography is not responsible for an incorrect address if the client has not reached out with updated information. Also please note that your items will all be shipped together in one package.
The client understands and agrees that any type of additional photographing, by anyone other than the photographer, during the course of the session is strictly prohibited; via camera, video, cell phone, etc.
*** Cancellation policy: Due to being booked full a few months in advance, there are no cancellations for work or domestic reasons. You will lose your $125 deposit. Arrangements will be made to reschedule your appointment only for stubborn babies who don’t arrive on time or dire illness. If you cancel within 72 hours before your shoot date, you will be charged 20% of the total package of your shoot. Example: 20% of $1595 = $319
*** LATE POLICY:
Since we are all natural light shooters, it’s imperative that you arrive to your shoot promptly on time otherwise it will compromise the available light we need to produce our beautiful photographs. Because of this, unfortunately, if you arrive 30 minutes late for your photo shoot, your shoot will be cancelled and you will be charged 20% of your photo shoot total.
If you leave something behind, we are not responsible for lost or stolen items. So please leave with what you bring!
Regarding belly lines, it’s up to the editors discretion whether it is completely removed or simply lightened. Unless you give us a specific request, we cannot re-edit the belly line after your photos have been completed. That really goes for all of our standard editing, which includes slimming down and covering up stretch marks, scars, etc.
You have been charged nonrefundable deposit to hold the date(s) of your session(s). You will be charged $350 one week before your scheduled shoot, and the remaining balance will be charged 4-6 weeks after your shoot once we’ve received your photos back from editors.
If you have paid in full, you will receive your images once we receive them from our editors.
Once you receive your final set with all your edited photos, you get up to five complimentary re-edits. (This would be after you receive your final already edited photos!) These are minor retouches like removing fly away hairs, stretch marks, slimming down, etc. If you want to re-edit any more than those five, we will have to get a quote from our editors. Additionally, we do not swap retouched photos for outtakes. Outtakes can be fully edited for $25 each, after they are received on your CD.
Credit Card Authorizations:
You have verbally given us your credit card information and authorization over the phone or the website. This credit card will be charged for the session deposit and fee, and any applicable travel fees. By providing your signature you are agreeing to the use of your credit card. Please let us know if you would like to use a different credit card for your product purchase at the time of order. Shipping and handling will be added to your order.
Turn Around Time:
Turn around time for all shoots is 4 to 6 weeks.
We only archived fully paid shoots for 1 year after shoot date. If you request for us to retrieve your photos from our external storage after 1 year there will be a $295 fee for retrieval.
We do post select photos on social media. Your signature indicates that you allow Lori Dorman Photography to show off your beautiful work.
Please be aware that you are coming to a home studio. Our two cats are generally never seen, but just in case you have allergies we wanted you to be aware.
All sales are final. There are no refunds.
*PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU DO NOT ACKNOWLEDGE THIS CONTRACT, YOU ARE GIVING FULL CONSENT AND AGREEMENT TO OUR TERMS AND POLICIES.
