Kala Rath Photography, LLC | Studio Policies

The session fee is due in full at the time of booking in order to guarantee your appointment date and time. You may reschedule this session, provided you give us a minimum of 48 hours notice; however, we ask that you limit rescheduling to one time only.

Session fee does not include and prints or product. Session Fee includes time and talent of photographer, the pre consultation appointment, the in person viewing appointment and our time spent enhancing and processing the images to make them of our quality of standard.

If you must cancel your session due to illness or other personal emergency, please do your best to provide the studio with 48 hours notice so that your session time can be made available to other clients. Failure to provide adequate notice of a cancellation or multiple rescheduling will result in the forfeiture of your session fees, and another session fee payment will be required to hold your new date.

Cameras, camcorders, or recording devices of any kind are not permitted at your photographic session. Please leave all camera equipment and devices at home.

Attendance at photo sessions is limited to those individuals being photographed. In the case of children and newborns, attendance is limited to two parents only. Siblings are welcome if they are to be photographed as well. Please do not bring personal assistants, nannies, caregivers, or friends to your session. Having additional people present is very distracting, not only to the photographer but also to those being photographed.

Your session will begin promptly at the agreed upon time. Please be dressed, made-up, and ready to begin at this time. (Because the session length is predetermined, any additional time required to prepare yourself or children once you’ve arrived will reduce the amount of time we can spend in-session, and further limits the amount of images captured.)

All orders from your session will take place at a special appointment created for this purpose, scheduled for two weeks after your session. This appointment will last one hour, and all individuals who wish to place an order (or have input into your family’s order) are encouraged to attend.

Ordered images will remain on file for one year from the date of your portrait sitting. Unordered images will be purged after 30 days of the first viewing.

Reprint orders can be made at any time throughout the year while your images are on file. As always, there is a minimum print order amount of $200, so it is best to place all orders at one time to avoid having to meet the minimum each time.

Due to the custom nature of the products and services provided by Kala Rath Photography, all sales are final. Items cannot be returned or exchanged. You may add on to your order at any time, but a sale is considered final at the time it is made.

Custom designs, layouts, and albums will be proofed to you within two weeks of your order. You are granted one opportunity to make up to three changes within your layout. All requests for changes must be made at the same time, as only one additional proof will be created. We reserve the right to make final decisions on artistic layouts.

Digital files are not included with your session fee, but can be purchased with our top collection, or on their own.
