Scheduling & Cancellation Policy *
Sessions will be scheduled at a time and location mutually agreed upon by Client and Bri Yankowski Photography. Bri Yankowski Photography reserves the right to schedule times and locations based upon business, artistic, and/or technical needs. All efforts will be made by Bri Yankowski Photography to keep the scheduled time and date. Should Bri Yankowski Photography have to cancel a session, and alternative arrangements for the Session cannot be agreed upon, the full retainer will be returned to Client. Client agrees that non-emergency cancellations require 24 hours notice. Every effort will be made to reschedule cancelled Sessions. Because of limited availability of Session times, non-emergency cancellations will not result in a return of the retainer. Retainer may be transferred to a rescheduled session. Client will forfeit any retainer not applied to a rescheduled session. Any non-emergency cancellation received less than 24 hours before the session will require a $25 rebooking fee in addition to the retainer. Client agrees that failure to appear at the scheduled time and location without advanced notice will result in an automatic forfeiture of retainer. In order to reschedule in the event of a failure to appear, the Client will be required to pay a second retainer. Only one such retainer will be credited toward the Session Fee. If, in the sole opinion of Bri Yankowski Photography, inclement weather or adverse conditions prevent creation of a portrait meeting Bri Yankowski Photography's artistic standards, Bri Yankowski Photography retains the sole right to elect an alternative location or date for the Session. In the event that such conditions prevent a Session, Client and Bri Yankowski Photography will mutually agree upon an alternative date and time.
Non Liability for Child Behavior *
Bri Yankowski Photography understands that sometimes, children just have a bad day and do not want their pictures taken. Every effort will be made to get a full session's worth of photographs (18-20 final images) despite the behavior of Client's child/children. However, Bri Yankowski Photography assumes no liability for inability to get an entire session's worth of photos, or any specifically requested photos, due to a child's behavior. In the event that behavior of a child results in less than an entire session's worth of photos, an additional mini-session can be scheduled for an additional cost to the Client. Bri Yankowski Photography maintains full discretion to stop a session and refuse to shoot further photos if children act in a manner potentially harmful to equipment, themselves, or the photographer. In the event of such a cessation, the entire Session Fee and Deposit are forfeited and no images will be provided. The Session will not be rescheduled. Any damage to equipment and/or studio caused by unruly children will be the sole responsibility of the Client. Bri YankowskiPhotography maintains the right to charge client for the full replacement value of any damaged equipment, including but not limited to cameras, lenses, flashes, strobes, lighting accessories, backdrops, props, etc.
