H. Copyright & Penalty
Lilac Blossom Photography retains all copyrights to all images created during client’s session. A print release will be provided with digital files to print portraits for personal use up to designated size listed on print release. The print release does not allow publication of your portraits (i.e. entering in contests), selling or altering of your images without the photographer’s written permission. It is illegal to copy, scan, download, print, share, alter, or otherwise steal any image created by Lilac Blossom Photography during client’s photo session. This applies to "sneak peek" images, images posted in an online proofing gallery, blog, Facebook, or hard copy images. If client steals images via any method listed above, or any other method, client will be invoiced for the cost of EACH digital image client has stolen, at photographer’s current price per digital file.
Note from photographer: I work very hard to create images that reflect you and your family, while keeping in line with my artistic vision and creativity. I know you will want to share them and include a sneak-peek for that very reason. However, I ask that you simply link back to my blog/website/facebook/Instagram page instead of right-clicking, saving, and sharing the image via your own page. I hope that you will respect not only my hard work, but the time, money, and dedication that I have put into training and equipment to capture these images for you. Please do not steal them.
I. Cancellations, Returns and Refunds
If an illness or situation prevents a photo session from taking place, client may reschedule their session at least 24 hours prior to their shoot without penalty. Should client fail to give 24 hours notice, or decide to completely cancel the shoot, this session fee is forfeited and will not be refunded. Photographer reserves the right to reschedule due to illness, weather, equipment malfunction, or other circumstances beyond their control.
Due to the custom nature of newborn photography, there is no guarantee on the number of poses or types of poses to be provided. During the session, all attempts will be made to soothe and comfort the baby to assist in providing a variety of poses and backdrops. If your baby (or other members of the family) are uncooperative, and all reasonable attempts have been made to soothe the baby, it is not the fault of the photographer. Alternate posing will be performed and therefore no refunds will be issued.
Lilac Blososm Photography has a strict NO REFUNDS POLICY. Once a transaction has been completed (i.e., the client selected and paid for the photos and then Lilac Blossom Photography sent the client the correct photographs) it is then considered non-refundable. A wide selection of images that are in line with Lilac Blossom Photography’s portfolio standards will be included in the online gallery. Refunds will NOT be given due to “not liking a photo or gallery”, selecting an incorrect photo from the gallery, or any other reason. If a mistaken photo is sent to the buyer, as documented on the favorited settings in the gallery, Lilac Blossom Photography will send the correct photo to the buyer free of charge.
