Terms & Conditions - Blue Bean Photography

CONTRACT: The client will agree to this our standard digital contract and image release prior to the photo session booking.

PAYMENT: The non refundable session fee (deposit) is required at the time of booking to secure the clients photographic slot and is then deducted from the final package price. The session fee books the studio and compensates for Victorias time and skill during the clients session, as well as post session processing, however the session fee does not include any prints or digital images. The client then chooses the package they wish to purchase in addition to the session. All packages are to be paid in full on the day of the photo session.

CANCELLATION: Victoria requires the booking fee from clients to prevent late cancellations. Cancellations have an impact on her diary as these dates are secured with such short notice.
