CANCELLING THE SESSION
In the event of an illness or misadventure, please call as soon as possible to reschedule. Elisabeth Franco Photography maintains the right to reschedule at any time should it become necessary but will do her upmost to negotiate a mutual acceptable rebooking. The request must be made no later than 24 hours prior to the start of the photography session.
If you have a sick child and you try to keep the appointment, Elisabeth Franco Photography will most likely request that you reschedule if it is noticed that your child is sick. Sick or uncomfortable children do not like to be photographed and we know that you will not love your images nearly as much as if he or she was in good health. The session can be transferred to a new date at the convenience of both parties.
If the Photographer has to cancel the appointment due to illness an alternative date will be offered where possible. Where not possible, the photographers liability shall be limited to a full refund of the session fee.
For cake smash sessions where the Photographer has commissioned a custom cake, a fee of £30 will be charged towards a new cake if the session can not be moved to the next day or day after because of prior bookings or the child remains ill.
Personal cameras, camera phones, camcorders or any other recording equipment is NOT permitted during any session, either in the studio or on location, without the express permission of Elisabeth Franco Photography.
The images on this site are from a large number of sessions and it is not possible to offer every pose or set up in each session. Every session is unique to each client. If a particular pose, prop or photo is wanted, the Client will discuss any requests before the day of the session. The Photographer will make every effort to comply with requests for specific photos. However, this will be dependant on the willingness/co-operation of subjects, it may not be possible for all or any of the images requested or expected to be captured.
In the event of an unsettled baby, some requested props or poses may not be suitable and the Photographer will use alternative props or poses. Please note, not all poses and shots are guaranteed.
The Photographer will end the session at her discretion when it is determined that adequate images in terms of quality and quantity have been captured. There will be no refund or credit for unused time.
The Photographer will do everything she can to produce good quality images. However, if your baby won’t settle or co-operate resulting in little or no images taken then the Photographer cannot be held responsible. In this instance the Photographer will offer the chance to re-shoot at a time suitable for both parties, although for newborn sessions it cannot be guaranteed that it will be in the 2 weeks time frame.
