Alicea Rose Photography reserves the rights to publish images taken in your session in the form of media for social networks, website, promotion, editorial, trade, and any other lawful purposes.
Newborn Baby's Arrival and Session Date: It is the client's responsibility to inform Alicea Rose Photography within 24 hours of baby's birth in order to guarantee a session within the 5-10 day period.
Session Arrival: Clients must arrive on time to their session. Late arrivals will result in less session time which will result in less images. Clients that arrive more than 30 minutes late will result in a complete cancellation of their session with no refunds given.
Session Times: Newborn and Baby sessions are held Tuesday-Thursday and Saturday-Sunday and begin at 10am. Newborn session times are UP to 1-3 hrs depending on your package. All sessions are held by appointment only.
Illness: If you or your child is sick, please contact Alicea at least 2 hours prior to your session to reschedule. Sick babies do not do well for their sessions and it's best to reschedule to a time when they are feeling better. Teething babies should be given pain relief medicine or other mediums at least 30 minutes prior to the session start time.
Working with Babies: Working with babies and infants offers no guarantees. Each child is his/her unique person and each child performs/poses differently. Your baby's comfort is our main priority and baby will never be put in a position/pose that is uncomfortable for them. The best time to photograph newborns is around 5-10 days new. Older babies may not sleep as well, tend to need to feed more and do not tend to pose as well. Posing of newborns or older babies may be modified at any time to accommodate baby's disposition, time restraints and session preparation.
Family and Older Siblings: Newborn and Baby sessions are limited to immediate family only while the main focus is on your baby. In order to keep the studio calm, safe and distraction-free during a 2-3 hour newborn session, older siblings are not permitted in the studio during the baby's posed photos. Older siblings must be arranged to leave the studio after the family/sibling portion of the session has been completed. Extended family will not be included in newborn and baby sessions and are not allowed to stay during any portion of the session.
The success of a sibling shot can depend on the overall cooperativeness of your older child. It can be a confusing time for a toddler and they may not be willing to participate. No shots with your brand new baby and your toddler will be guaranteed.
Creative License: The photographer will make all final decisions in regards to session styling, props, color, blankets, and accessories. Of course, your color preferences will be taken into consideration and accommodated. Special shot requests must be made prior to booking. Gallery image selection is done by the photographer. Raw, unedited images are not available for viewing.
Payment: Session Packages are due in full on the day of your session. Invoices are paid directly through your client portal. Gallery images will not be released until your session has been paid in full. Booked sessions are guaranteed the price quoted at booking. Pricing may change without notice. Session deposits are non-refundable. Re-shoots are not offered and pricing is non-negotiable. Due to the nature of custom portrait photography all sales are final.
Waiver of liability: Client expressly releases Alicea Rose Photography from all claims, damages and liabilities that may result from incidents that occur during the portrait session and while the client is on the premises. This waiver of liability includes a waiver of any claim. The client also agrees to hold harmless Alicea Rose Photography for any damage to personal property during the session.
Alicea Rose Photography reserves the right to refuse service to anyone.
