Reservation of session date: Upon this signed agreement and the deposit of $50 per session, paid via email money transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org with a password of minisession, your session date will be secured. The fee is non-refundable unless enough notice is given in order to rebook the session time. The remainder of the fee is due on the day of the session via cash or email money transfer.
Mini session location: Mini sessions will be held at Avec Maman Studio at 49 Pownal Street - Suite 301 in Charlottetown. Please note that the studio is on the 3rd floor and there is no elevator available. If anyone in your party has limited mobility, contact me about the possiblity of an alternate mini session date at an accessible outdoor location.
Session starts at the agreed upon time. It is strongly encouraged that you arrive early to the session as I am unable to extend the session times in the event of a late arrival.
For young children, it is especially important to sell the session to your child as a fun experience, rather than a task they need to perform. Please trust that the majority of children respond best to the photographer asking them to perform tasks rather than Mom and Dad. Bribery is best treated as a last resort :)
Gallery and files: Your online gallery with approximately 10 full resolution files included with your mini session package will provided to you via email within one week of the session.
