If you choose to purchase a digital image only package with 15 or less images they will be sent to you via digital download following payment. If you choose a digital package which includes 30 images your images will be provided on a USB which you will be able to take home on the day of your viewing appointment following payment.

 

Display

 

Unless you request otherwise I am free to display any photographs taken on the following; website, portfolio, literature, social media, display areas, exhibitions, competitions, advertising or slide shows.

 

Images

 

I will provide a pleasing colour balance but cannot guarantee exact colour matching owing to anomalous reflectance caused by a combination of certain dyes and materials especially man-made fibres. It is sometimes impossible to record digitally the exact colour as seen by the human eye. All images are professionally post processed and I will never release unedited work.

All images will be adjusted for skin blemishes, exposure, brightness, contrast, sharpness, etc.  Judgement regarding these corrections and the number of images put forward to the client for preview shall be deemed correct.

 

Liability

 

I will have no liability in the event of photos being lost due to equipment malfunction. I will hold no liability in the event that the content and/or presentation of the images are not satisfactory to the taste of third parties.

 

Mini Sessions

Mini sessions are to be booked online via the Mini session booking app. Payment in full at the time of booking is required and will secure your slot. Refunds will not be given if you chose to cancel your session or you fail to attend for your session. If you wish to re-schedule you must give at least 24 hours notice. If less than 24 hours notice is given and you wish to reschedule your appointment a re-booking fee of £30.00 will apply.

 

You must arrive on time for your session. If you are late time will not be made up as sessions are scheduled back to back.

 

 Following your session I will pick and edit the best images from your session. Your images will available to download from a private online viewing gallery 7 days after your Studio Session. You will not have a gallery of images to choose from. If your package includes 3 images you will receive 3 images only and you will not have a gallery of for example 10 images in which to choose your chosen 3 from.

Copyright

 

Any images or copies of images whether stored digitally or otherwise remain the property of Rachael Arnold Photography.

 

Cancellation

 

The Client may cancel a session at any time by giving notice  but in doing so shall forfeit any monies paid. If you are sick, please give 24 hours’ notice to reschedule your session. If 24 hours’ notice is not given or client is a no show, then a re-booking fee of £65.00 will be charged if you wish to re-book. If the event is cancelled by Rachael Arnold Photography due to illness, injury or other cause beyond the control of the parties, any deposit paid will be returned to the client.
