Cancellation Charges


It's something most people don't want to discuss, receive or issue, but of course something that needsto be in place and discussed. As cancellations, especially last minute ones result in a lot of lose in time, money, expenses and a lose of bookings.

Late cancellations for a portrait/family sessions happen all the time, things come up, children become unwell and this happens a lot and of course often at the very last minute. If this is the case please let me know as soon as you know. Your booking feeyou paid on booking the shoot will stay with me and be used against the shoot when we are able to go ahead. Your deposit is valid for 1 year from the original booking. Please note that if you have cancelled twice with a months notice or less then your deposit will be forfeited. This is due to the fact I will have lost at least 2 bookings due to your cancellations.

I am always very understanding in a real emergency that means the booking is cancelled,  but for reasons such as, you forgot, you double booked with a party your little one had, or you no longer want or need my services etc. , this of course will incur charges.
