Once the order is placed, it typically takes 1-2 weeks to have it in your hands.
Since I do run a legal business I have a few rules (or recommendations ?!)
that I ask be followed and a few things that I just want you to know:
Your session will not be considered "booked" until your portrait agreement is signed/returned and your Retainer fee is paid.
If you or your child are sick (fever, rash, severe cold symptoms, etc.) within 24 hours of the session you MUST reschedule.
I do not release RAW (un-edited) files at all, ever!
Sales tax will be charged on all orders that contain products (prints, canvases, albums, etc.)
Read your portrait agreement! It will answer almost all of your questions.
Be kind. ALWAYS be kind. Even in emails, especially on social Media!
