A non-refundable $75 deposit, required to book your session, is applied towards the $150 session fee, and due within 4 hours of receiving my online invoice. I will send the invoice via Paypal. You do not need a Paypal account. It processes as a normal credit card. Please understand, I cannot hold spots for unpaid deposits. If there is a true emergency or illness on the day of your session, you must contact me as soon as possible BEFORE the session and I will gladly schedule another day for you.
PLEASE ARRIVE 15 MINUTES BEFORE YOUR SESSION. In the event you are late, I can only guarantee any remaining portion of your time slot. You may then choose to wait, and if there is enough available light before sunset at the end of all sessions, we can make it up.
Your session and prints: I will take an undetermined number of photographs during your 20 minute session. (As many as I can!) I will then select the best images to edit, maximum 5, to upload to your private online gallery. You may then select from those images the prints you would like made, whether the 2 - 5x7's and 1 - 8x10 (can be one or multiple poses) or one pose for the Christmas cards. Additional prints or cards may be ordered at 20% off! Other products are available at standard pricing: modern canvas gallery wraps, wall standouts, metal prints, etc. Full pricing available upon request.
Clothing ideas: Matchy, matchy is out. Coordinating is in! I recommend combining a couple of solid color tops that mix nicely and avoid bold or flashy prints or big logos. Think timeless (but not boring). Add fun jewelry or cute headbands for girls or hats for guys/boys. Layering always looks great (scarf, jacket, leggings, etc.). Think fun colors that look great on you will make you happy every time you look at your images. #1 tip: If Mom is going to be in the picture, have her choose her outfit first, then coordinate everyone else. :)
Digital images: Under Federal Copyright law, all images are protected and property of gail centeno photography. Images MAY NOT be cropped, altered, edited in any way or printed without permission of gail centeno photography. Doing so is a violation and gives a false representation of my work. Any watermark must remain visible. Digital images provided are for personal sharing through email, social networking, etc. only and are not high resolution images for printing.
Most importantly after all the boring (but essential!) legal stuff: Relax and have fun! This will be a non-stressful and easy way to get some great new pictures and introduce you to the world of custom photography! I love my clients and enjoy meeting new people. Customer service is HUGE to me! I never give less than 100% and absolutely love what I do. I hope it's evident in the images I capture that photography makes my heart sing. Okay, that was cheesy, but it's true. :)
Happy Holiday Mini booking!
