• Once this form is completed, and your deposit is made, pricing is guaranteed.

• Final payment is due before or on your session date.

• In the event of a cancellation of the session, the $250 deposit received shall be retained by Joyful Emotion Photography (Jessica Handjiev) and shall be non-refundable except for clients who have booked a fall session and in the event that weather becomes an issue and we run out of opportunities to reschedule.

• If you need to reschedule your session, you are required to give Joyful Emotion 2 weeks notice. If you fail to give enough notice, a $100 fee may be added to your invoice.

• I will do my best to capture any special requests, however due to the unpredictable nature of child photography, Joyful Emotion Photography (Jessica Handjiev) does not guarantee the delivery of any requested or expected photographs.

• If you feel that the session did not go well and you are concerned that your family/kids just had an off day and you are worried about what the images will look like, you can decide to schedule a “REDO” session. There is a fee of $250 for this and you do have to let me know that day, before any post-processing work is done. Otherwise if you wait to see the images first, full fees will apply to do a reshoot. I will almost never suggest a redo and just do my best to capture the best images possible so it is completely up to you to decide if you would like to pay the extra fee to reschedule.
