Newborn galleries take time to edit due to baby skin tones (red, jaundice, etc) and baby acne/flaking. It is my policy to smooth the skin and edit any scratches, blotches and blemishes on baby's face and body. General turn around time for this is 14 business days from the day after your session.
Maternity, Milestone and Family sessions are most often completed in 7 business days from the day after your session. Only light retouching is done for these sessions. If you request additional editing be done (body slimming, wardrobe modifications, head swapping, wrinkle removal, etc) there will be an additional charge per file. Price will be determined based on the requests
Birth and Weddings will be complete in 6-8 weeks.
If an illness or situation prevents a session from taking place, client may reschedule their session at least 48 hours prior to their shoot without penalty. Should client fail to give 48 hours notice, or decide to completely cancel the shoot, this session fee is forfeited and is considered liquidated damages to the Photographer. Photographer reserves the right to reschedule due to illness, weather, equipment malfunction, or other circumstances beyond their control.
Re-shoots / Refunds
Re-shoots are determined at the discretion of the photographer. Re-shoots and refunds will not be given for poor choices of clothing, make-up, hair or weather related issues, or by not following the recommendations of the photographer.
After twelve (12) months, all images will be purged from photographer’s hard-drive, except as needed for promotional purposes, to be determined by photographer at photographer’s sole discretion. Photographer is not responsible for loss or damage to the digital files due to circumstances beyond photographer’s control. After fourteen (14) days, images from your online gallery will be archived. After that time, there will be a $25 fee to retreive said gallery. It's strongly encouraged that clients download all images and back them up to an external hardrive, a USB or something of that nature.
All payments are due in full unless payment arrangements have been made. Orders will not be processed until payment in full is received. If client has arranged a print or canvas order, order will be placed after the payment has been received.
Photographer is not responsible for the damage of portraits after delivery to client, including damage caused during transit by US mail. Client assumes all responsibility for the safety of all portraits upon receipt.
I hereby give to Tina Jones Photography the absolute and irrevocable right and permission with respect to the photographs that he/she has taken of myself and/or my minor child in which he/she may be included with others:

I hereby release and discharge photographer from all and any claims and demands ensuing from or in connection with the use of the photographs, including any and all claims for libel and invasion of privacy.
Photographer is not responsible for any injuries inflicted upon any participating parties. Client(s) will be responsible for their children and for themselves and release photographer from any claims against their person or their business.
Copyright & Penalty
Tina Jones Photography retains all copyrights to all images created during client’s session. A print release will be included 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 Tina Jones 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 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.
*No cameras/camcorders/any type of recording device (this includes cell phone cameras) are allowed during the session unless prior arrangement has been made between client and photographer, including a written agreement. The photographer will not continue if there are other cameras or video taping during the session.
*Session starts at the agreed upon time. It is strongly encouraged that client arrives 15 minutes prior to the start of session. This allows for any last-minute feeding, changing, and relaxing before session begins.
*Please do not bring any children not being photographed to the session.
*Please make sure hair is combed and face is clean and free of runny noses or eyes.
*Please avoid eating or drinking red or orange food or drinks before session, as red and orange tend to leave a stain on the face.
