Amber J Photography's Studio Policies

The remaining balance of your session fee is due prior to the start of your session. We will not begin taking any photographs until your balance has been paid. Please arrive on time for your session. If you are going to arrive late, we would appreciate a call or a text to let us know. If you are more than 15 minutes late, Amber J Photography LLC reserves the right to cancel your session and keep your retainer. If you need to reschedule your session, we will be happy to work with you.

Rescheduling: If you must reschedule your session due to illness or other personal emergency, please do your best to provide the studio with 24 hours notice so that your session time can be made available to other clients. We allow for one time of rescheduling at no additional cost. If your session is on-location, we wait until an hour before your session time to determine if inclement weather is going to be a factor. There have been many instances where the weather turned absolutely perfect just before a shoot.

Please only bring those subjects that will be included in the photographs. If we are in the studio, too many people could be distracting to younger children. We want their full attention on us.

No personal cameras are allowed during the session. Please refrain from video recording, or taking cell phone pictures.

 If you have a sick child on the day of your session, please call and reschedule. Unhealthy children are unhappy children.

Pets: We love animals, however, we do not allow pets in our studio. If you would like to bring along your pet to an on-location session, we would be happy to include that family member in your portraits (as long as the location we have chosen for the shoot allows animals).

After your session is ready for you to view, we will have you come back to the studio for your ordering appointment. You will get to enjoy a slideshow of the images from your session, and place your order.  We do not offer online galleries. Should you be unable to make a decision and need to schedule a second viewing session, there will be an additional fee. Please have all decision makers at your ordering appointment.

You agree to hold Amber Johnston and any representatives of Amber J Photography, harmless from any dispute in the event you or your family become injured during your session or while on the studio premises. Amber J Photography and its representatives will not be held liable for any injury to you, your children or your family members, or for any damage to your property during the photo session or while on studio premises.
