2017 Policies & Session Contract

Sessions & Session Fees

* Your session fee includes my time, travel, editing/retouching and online viewing.  NO Digital images or prints are included with your session fee

* $150 of your session fee will go towards your Purchase

* If you are a part of the 1st year package, you will receive a $100 print credit towards each session.  Sessions cannot be combined into 1 order, and must be ordered separately.

* There is a $250 minimum order requirement for every session, which means you must spend a total of at least $250 on prints or a package

* Your session fee is NON-REFUNDABLE but may be applied towards an order from a previous session or towards a new session within 3 months of the original session date.  If you do not schedule within 3 months, your session fee and print credit will be forfeited.

* All sessions are done on-location (with the exception of newborn sessions) which means they may be rescheduled due to uncontrollable weather circumstances.  Please be prepared to reschedule if necessary.  There are no refunds due to weather, but your session can and will be rescheduled at the earliest possible date/time.

* All newborn sessions will be done in my home studio Monday – Friday in the early afternoon around 11am.

* If your child is sick or unusually cranky, please call and reschedule your session, I would rather reschedule, then try to photograph a sick and unhappy child 🙂

* If your newborn session goes beyond 3 hours, we will reschedule for another day.

* There will be no cameras or camera phones allowed at any session.  If I see anyone taking pictures during a session, I will have to stop the shoot.

* In order to secure your date on the calendar, you session fee must be paid.

*  PLEASE make sure you are familiar with my current pricelist and packages.  They are listed below in this document and on my website under pricing.

*Cherise Kiel Photography has the right to artistic expression.  Some images will be presented in black & white or with some artistic editing.  How you see your images in your gallery is how they will be presented to you if you purchase the digital images.



* Images will be available in an online gallery within 5-10 business days from your session date.

* Your session will only be put online for 10 days.  You must place your order within those 10 days.

* If your session expires before you place your order, there will be a $50 fee to have them put back online.

* If you have not placed your order within 3 months of your session date, your $150 will no longer be applied towards your order and you are subject to the current pricing structure

* Your order will NOT be placed until the final balance is paid.

* Once an order is placed and the balance is paid, it can take up to 3-4 weeks to receive the final product.  Any orders containing images 16×20 or larger will require a pickup at my home to avoid damage in the mail (unless the recipient is out of state).



* If you are unhappy with your images, you may request a reshoot.  Reshoots must be done within a 4 week period of the original session (unless Cherise Kiel Photography’s calendar is already filled).

* If you request a reshoot, your original photographs will no longer be available for purchase, and a whole new session will be done to better suit your needs 🙂

* There will be no refunds provided if you are unhappy with your images.  But a reshoot will be allowed and Cherise Kiel Photography will do all in our power to achieve the images you desire.



* I for good and valuable consideration, the receipt of which is hereby acknowledged, hereby irrevocably authorize Cherise Kiel Photography to use photographs of me and or my property and authorize him/(her/their and his/her/their assignees), licensees, legal representatives and transferees to use and publish (with or without my name, company name or with a fictitious name) photographs, pictures, portraits or images herein described in any and all forms and media and in all manners including composite images or distorted representations, and the purposes of publicity, illustration, commercial art, advertising, publishing (including publishing in electronic form on CDs or internet websites), for any product or services, or other lawful uses as may be determined by the photographer or Cherise Kiel Photography.  I further waive any and all rights to review or approve any uses of the images, any written copy or finished product. I am of full legal age and have read and fully understand the terms of this release.  If the subject is underage, I am the parent or legal guardian of the minor and have the legal right and authority to execute the above release on behalf of the minor.

* Please do not enter any photos from Cherise Kiel Photography into any contests without my written consent unless you have purchased a CD of images from me.

* If you use a photo from Cherise Kiel Photography as your facebook profile, please DO NOT crop out my logo.  I greatly appreciate it.

* Please do not print, copy, save, scan or “screen shot” any of my portraits.  The resulting quality is very poor and I do not want that quality associated with my name.

* Please DO NOT edit, add filters or alter my images in any way.
