Print Orders: We will set up your view and ordering session the day of your scheduled session.  You must make your print purchases at this time.  No changes can be made after your ordering session; unless you wish to add to your order.  After your ordering session is complete then I will provide you with an online gallery to share with friends and family.  The gallery will be password protected.  If other family member wish to order prints they may do so at this time; but I do not drop ship orders unless their personal order is  over $200 in print value.  If any online order is less than that; then I will order the prints and give the prints to the original client to give to their family members unless other arrangements are made by the online ordering client.   Your online gallery will be password protected and only active for 3 days.  Please have your family members orders placed within the time frame to avoid any extra time-extension fees. ($50 reactivation fee for galleries that are extended over the 3 day initial period; once inactive client must pay $50.00 to extend their gallery for an additional 3 day time period).

Digital orders:  A print release to www.mpix.com will be given to you when these files are purchased.  Due to the nature of digital photography and various labs,  mpix.com is the only lab I recommend you printing digital images from.  General stores printers are not calibrated to the standards of custom portraiture and images with lose their professional look if printed any where else.  Please understand that your reprint rights will only be given to this lab for prints.

Sales are Final: Due to the custom nature of each session, all sales final.

Re-Shoots: Re-shoots are at the discretion of the photographer; and are not given for regretful personal choices such as hair and clothing choices.  Please understand that with my style of photography sun-flair and sun-haze in photos are a part of my artistic imagery.  Your photos may have these aspects in your images and that it is not a defect.
