Amber J Photography's Studio Policies

Please only bring those subjects that will be included in the photographs. Too much commotion in the room could disturb your newborn and make them become restless. We also request that you bring along someone who can take siblings to a local park or back home after their part in the session is complete. We ask this because some sessions can take a long time and young children will become restless while they wait.

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

If you are having your child circumcised, we ask that you wait to have it done until after your session, or that you wait until at least 6 days past the date of circumcision to have your session.

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

There may be times where you are asked to feed your newborn. Full babies are happy and sleepy babies. If you are breast-feeding and would like privacy, we are happy to step out of the studio until you have finished feeding. If you decide that you would prefer to wait and feed your child after the session is finished, we will end the session immediately. If we have to end the session due to this issue a refund will not be offered.

After your session is ready for you to view, we will have you come back to the studio for an 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. The ordering appointment is included in your session fee. 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 Session.

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. You have the right to refuse any pose(s). Safety is our number one priority at Amber J Photography, and we will NEVER put your newborn in an unsafe situation.
