Holding a Date With A Retainer Fee

Once you’ve decided to work with me, we’ll pick a date (likely a rain-date as well) and I’ll take a retainer fee of  half your session-fee+travel fee (if one applies) price (and half of the Digital Gallery Rights if you know you want to purchase that as well) to hold your shooting date and time.  

When I set aside a date on the calendar for you, I am blocking it out from booking any other session at that time so a small humble commitment is required in the form of a retainer fee.

The retainer is non-refundable but if something unpredictable makes it impossible to shoot (child splits lip, parent gets sick, spouse has to work last minute, etc.) you can reschedule within 30 days without losing that fee.   If I’m the party who gets blindsided by illness, I make a mistake or something makes it impossible for me to shoot that day;   you never lose your retainer and I do my best to reschedule sooner than the 30 days and certainly at your earliest convenience.

You can make that retainer payment (including any applicable travel fee or the Digital Gallery Rights if you’re sure you want that too) by clicking the “MAKE A PAYMENT” button below.   I collect the balance of the session fee on the day of our shoot.

I also accept cash and checks.

Props For Pix

If you buy a prop (blanket, fabric, basket, hat, beanie, tutu, etc) and I LOVE it and you can part with it, I’ll buy it from you for 70% of what you paid for it and deduct that amount from the balance of your Digital Gallery Rights purchase.
