The session fee is due at the booking of your portrait session. Session fees are non-refundable, however with 48 hours notice it can be rescheduled in case of an emergency.
If you or a family member are sick on the day of the session please call the studio to reschedule. If you try to keep the appointment, We will most likely request that you reschedule, if we notice you or a family member is sick. Sick or uncomfortable people do not like to be photographed and we know that you will not love your portraits nearly as much, as if he or she was in good health.
In the event that the photographer is ill and not able to attend your photo shoot, you will be contacted with as much notice as possible and your photo shoot will be rescheduled.

While Michelle and Charlie - Silverlock Photography Limited do capture many images during your session, you will see only those images selected by us, the artist, for previewing. We carefully render each image to ensure maximum artistry and technical perfection. Images with eyes closed (blinking), heads turned, duplicates, etc. will not be shown and are removed from my archives permanently after the artist rendering is complete.
