6.5. A Flash In Time Photography does give the clients the option to choose the location. In the event the client chooses the location and its private property, no trespassing, etc. Please make sure you recieve written permission to have photos taken at that said location for the session date and time. In the event where permission wasn't granted and we recieve penalties or any reprocussuons the client agrees to pay for all fees following the issue as it was not A Flash In Time Photography's choice of location.

7.1 I do offer printing through a professional photo lab for my clients although it is ultimately up to the client where they choose to print their photos. I strongly advise against using any local pharmacy/grocery store for printing as their quality lacks greatly and the colors may be off. In the event a client chooses to use a local store for printing and their images don't turn out as they were hoping, A Flash In Time Photography is not held liable or responsible for this. No discounts, refunds, or favors will be issued as this was the clients decision to print where advised not to.
Photo labs I strongly recommend for self fulfillment:
Miller's Photo Lab
Nations Photo Lab
8. SESSION TIMES & RETAINER FEE
8.1 Session times are on a strict time basis. Under certain circumstances A Flash In Time Photography will allow the session to go over the end time but the client will be charged for the extra time at the hourly rate. Please make sure to book enough time so we can capture all the images you would like.
8.2 A Flash In Time Photography requires a non refundable retainer fee to be paid on day of signing before securing the booking date. This retainer fee secures your Photoshoot date & time. The date and time remains available to any client until the retainer is paid. Once the retainer is paid I turn down all other commissions for said date and time. The remaining balance will be due on the day of the photoshoot. I gladly accept cash, Facebook Pay, and Paypal. No checks will be accepted.
8.3 The retainer is non refundable no matter the circumstances!

9.1 No rescheduling!! If you need to reschedule please be aware you will have to pay a new retainer and a rescheduling fee for a future date and time if you would still like photos done.
9.2 If you do not show or cancel completely the retainer will be forfeited.
9.3 If you are 10 minutes (or less) late to your session the end time does not change. Please be on time and ready to take photos at the start time of your session. A Flash In Time Photography is not held liable for lost time because the client didn't show up on time.
9.4 If you are more than 10 minutes late A Flash In Time Photography will not take the photos on that said day and time and the retainer is forfeited and you must pay a fee if you would like to reschedule along with a new retainer for a new session. A Flash In Time Photography is not held liable for the client not showing up on time. Under some circumstances A Flash In Time Photography will still agree to do the photos if I am able to depending on time but there will be a late fee. Please be advised this is not a guarentee and A Flash In Time Photography has every right to deny the photoshoot without explaination.
9.5 If you do not show up at all to your session the retainer is forfeited and you will pay a fee along with a new retainer for a new session if you would like to book again.
9.6 In the event something tragic happens or an illness occurs, A Flash In Time Photography will contact you within 24 hours to reschedule, there will be no fee for this. In my 5 years of professionally doing photography I've never had to reschedule and I always strive to make it on time to every single session.
10.1 If the weather is non permitting A Flash In Time Photography will contact you and discuss options for rescheduling. You do have the option to keep the session even if the weather is non permitting but A Flash In Time Photography does hold the right to cancel the session (even during) due to the weather being a threat to equipment or if it's not possible to shoot in. Please be advised that if you choose to keep your session during a day with non permitting weather that the photos may not turn out exactly as you may have hoped (lack of sun, cloudy, etc) and A Flash In Time Photography is not held liable for that if you chose to keep your session. If A Flash In Time Photography does cancel the session during the shoot because the weather is too much you will still owe the full balance and there will be no refunds as we tried to reschedule but the client decided to proceed and that is out of our hands.
10.2 There are no fees for rescheduling due to non permitting weather. As long as A Flash In Time Photography agrees the weather is non permitting.
