Here are the general policies and procedures I use to conduct photo shoots. Full details will be spelled out in your contract.
To maximize your session time, you’ll fill out a questionnaire about your project and we’ll follow that with a free 30-minute consultation prior to your shoot. We’ll define your needs and goals so we have all details in place before your session.
It is standard practice for photographers to retain the copyright for images made and use them in their portfolios. Identifiable images can not be sold without property or model releases.
If you require ownership of the photographs, we’ll enter into a work-for-hire contract and fee scale.
Let’s have fun
Know that when we work together, my goal is to always have fun! I love creating great images for my clients and making the process as easy and light-hearted as possible.
Contracts create understanding and protect both clients and service providers alike. Please review them carefully so we understand and agree upon what to expect from working together.
contracts & deposits
A contract and retainer are required to confirm your booking.
cancelations & refunds
If an unavoidable scheduling conflict unexpectedly arises, we’ll work together to reschedule. Retainers are non-refundable except in very special circumstances and at the discretion of Val in Real Life LLC.
My portfolio is available for review before booking. Every shoot is different and will result in variability of images produced. You can be assured I’ll deliver the quality you expect based upon my body of work.
