Terms & Conditions

I am pleased that you have selected Jen J Photography for your photography services and am honored to photograph you and your family! This letter sets forth the terms and conditions of our engagement. By paying the associated fees for your photo session, you agree to the following terms:

  1.  The paid fee shall be good for services performed on date agreed upon by you and Jen J Photography. In the event that you need to reschedule that date, I will retain your fee as a credit toward a session at a future date. Pricing and my availability to provide services on such date will be reviewed and every attempt to reschedule your session will be made. If you request to reschedule this second appointment, at that point your session fee is forfeited and a new session fee will be charged if a new appointment is desired. In the event of a cancellation for unforeseen reasons including but not limited to sudden health problems, moving, or job loss, your session fee may be fully refunded at the discretion of Jen J Photography. Mini-sessions may not be rescheduled except at the photographer’s discretion but may be refunded if requested 48 hours prior to the scheduled session.
  2. Only those who are being photographed should attend the session, however I recognize it may be helpful to have a nanny, caregiver, or grandparent present to help with children. Anyone attending sessions are kindly asked to adhere to any instructions from the photographer and to refrain from interfering with the photographer’s work. ABSOLUTELY NO PHOTOGRAPHIC, VIDEO , FILM, DIGITAL OR RECORDING DEVICES OF ANY KIND ARE PERMITTED DURING A SESSION without permission from Jen J Photography.
  3. The session fee pays for your in-person or phone pre-session consultation, the agreed up length of photography time at your session (30 min. for mini-sessions), image preparation and all edited high-res image files available for download and personal use. Images may not be submitted to contests, sold, or represented as any other than the work of Jen J Photography.
  4. Jen J Photography reserves the right to terminate any session due to any failure of the client to adhere to the requirements set forth in this Agreement or if the subject(s) being photographed are unwilling to be photographed or if anyone in the session is behaving in a manner that the photographer deems inappropriate or inconsistent with the purposes of the session. In the event of any such termination, Jen J Photography may offer to schedule a new session in its sole discretion; provided, however, that it is under no obligation to do so. Under no circumstances will the session fee be refunded.
  5. Parties being photographed must be dressed, made up and prepared at the designated start time. Sessions will begin and end promptly as scheduled. Additional photography time may be purchased in half-hour increments for $150 per half-hour (photographer availability and schedule permitting). Photographer/Owner captures the “essence” of your children; the finer details (combed hair, clean faces, jewelry etc.) are the parents’ responsibility.
