POST SESSION

Upon post-session processing, your images will be uploaded to a private online gallery that is password protected.  You are free to share this information with anyone you'd like.  The gallery expires after 30 days.  After the expiration there is a $25 reactivation fee.  Once the gallery is uploaded, all unedited images from family and senior sessions are removed from our hard drive three months after the gallery is shared.  All unedited wedding images are removed from our hard drive six months after the gallery is received by the client. 
 

ADDITIONAL EDIT FEE
 

All touchups (stray hair, blemishes, color correcting) is included in your sitting fee.  Each additional photo or edit request by the client that is not included in the session fee is an additional $10 per image.  We will not Photoshop heads, reshape your body, change the color of your clothing etc. since it will change the overall look of the final image.
