“Your worlds greatest possession”
terms & conditions
The acceptance of the booking is based on agreement by the client of the terms and conditions stated herein.
There is a non refundable session fee of €120/100 to secure your booking.
The session fee covers my time during the session and the creativity of editing work. Images and products are purchased after/separately from the session fee.
Once your booking is made and the session fee is received, you will receive a client guide with all the information and tips for your session. If we haven't already done so we will have a quick consultation through phone call or email so I can make sure you receive a session that meets your needs.
Cancellation / Rescheduling of Sessions
Transferring your session fee to a different day is allowed if requested at least 6 days before your photo session.
I understand that children can be unpredictable and fall ill at any time. In the event of sickness prior to the session, the client agrees to make every possible effort to inform Lasting Memories Photography no later than 2 hours prior to the start time of the photography session. The session can be transferred to a new date which will be at the convenience of both parties within a maximum 1 month period. Lasting Memories reserves the right to re-schedule outside of this time limit due to any existing commitments.
If the client fails to reschedule within the 1 month time period, Lasting Memories Photography has the right to cancel the booking with all payments made non-refundable.
In the event of any person falling ill during the session, LM Family Photography reserves the right to postpone the photo shoot and re-schedule at the convenience of both parties.
The charges in the contract are based on LM Family Photography price list at the time of booking.
If after the ordering period the client decides to purchase more images or products, the prices will reflect the price list of the time of ordering the additional images. So the prices may very to your contract prices.
If in the opinion of the photographer, inclement weather or other adverse conditions prevent the creation of a photo shoot, Lasting Memories Family Photography may elect to use an alternate location or to reschedule the photo shoot.
The studio is shoe free. LM takes pictures of little ones and this will ensure the hygiene and safety of all babies crawling and sitting on the studio floor.
Please avoid any self tanning products on your skin. If you choose to wear tan, I am afraid that we won’t edit out tan lines or yellow skin.
Please be on time, if the client is more then 30 min late, the session may be cancelled and the session fee is non refundable.
All backdrops and sets will be prepared before the client's arrival, to ensure a quick session flow.
The client is always very welcome to tell the photographer during a session, if the client doesn't like something and the photographer can move on from that particular set.
Once the session is over we will make an appointment for you to come back to the studio for you gallery viewing, you will be shown a beautiful slideshow of your final professionally edited images. You will then have the chance to view each image individually. This usually takes place 3-6 weeks after your session.
At the gallery viewing you will select the products and wall arts that you would like to purchase. It is important to pick a gallery viewing date that suits you financially as sales are final on the day. Payment is accepted by cash or can be paid by card on the day. If needed a payment plan can be set up and we can arrange this accordingly. No products will be given until payment is made in full. In the unlikely event that products are not selected on the gallery viewing day each product price will remain at that price for 14 days, after this period there will be a €100 increase on each product price.
Your chosen digital images will be sent to you via an online link to your private gallery for download in full resolution.
The gallery with all edited images will remain active for a few years.
No part of the order, will be delivered until the balance is paid in full.
All images are edited based on the photographers portfolio at the time of booking. The client booked the photographer based on the portfolio, it is up to the photographer on how each session is edited.
You can collect the images at the studio or I can post them out. If you ordered wall art there will be an additional postage charge.
LM Family Photography owns the copyright to all photographs. No image can be copied, scanned or reproduced in any form whatsoever without the prior consent of Lasting Memories Family Photography. The client may not alter or add to or manipulate a picture by any means or reproduce a picture in whole or in part as an element within, or as a montage with, another picture without photographer’s written permission.

Vouchers are non refundable. Under no circumstances the value of a voucher will be paid out to the original buyer or the person that holds the voucher.
