Mini Session Contract




Due to the limited slots and back-to-back booking, mini session deposits for $100 of the total session fee are non-refundable and are due at the time of booking. The remaining balance of $75 is due at the arrival of your session via card, cash, or check. If the final payment is not complete, the photo session will be canceled. Your session fee includes 1 photography session, basic retouching of the 10 selected images of your choice, hosting of the gallery on my website, and digital download of high-resolution images with print release for your use.  The price of the session and number of images included depends on the individual mini session being promoted.  Additional digital images can be provided at an additional cost of $10.00 per image and multiple printing options are available at a discount.  


Basic retouching includes light blemish/scratch and stray hair removal, teeth whitening, softening of the under-eye area where necessary.  Complex retouching includes but is not limited to removal of scars and heavy blemishes, excessive tan line removal, tattoo removal, subtle face or body slimming are not included in mini-sessions but can be provided for an additional fee at the client's request.



Please note that your session fee deposit is non-refundable. In the event that you cancel your portrait session after it has been scheduled, no refund of your session will be made to you.  However, as we understand that schedules may change, in the event that you need to reschedule your session and you provide at least twenty-four (24) hours advance notice of the same, your session fee may be applied to the next mini-session event (March 27, 2022).

If the Photographer is unable to perform to the guidelines of this contract due to fire or other casualties, an act of God, an act of terrorism, or other cause beyond the control of the parties, or due to a grave illness of the Photographer, and if the Photographer is unable to provide another photographer that is agreeable to the client, then all fees paid by the client will be returned in full.



Your images will be ready to view 2 business days after each session via a private online gallery hosted on our website. Once the images are uploaded to the online gallery, the client will have a 5-day window to make selections.    The gallery will not be delivered by February 10, 2022 after 5 days. Once selections have been made, your finished images will be available via email link for download along with a print release document.  The client will be responsible for downloading their images to a device for personal use. After this, all sales are final.  There are no returns on files, no exceptions. 



Mini-Sessions are scheduled back-to-back, any client that is late to their session will lose that time from their session.  To avoid this, Clients should intend to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to their session start time.  

Lauren Nicole Imagery will use this time wisely and try to capture the best possible images in the allowable time frame.  This will include entire family images, images of siblings together, and images of children individually, as long as time allows and children are willing to be photographed.  Sorry, there will be no pets allowed for this specific mini session and no time for clothing changes. As mini-sessions and their inclusions are offered at a discounted rate, no other offers or discounts apply, and re-shoots are not offered.  

It is the Client's responsibility that any children involved in the photography session arrive in the following condition: Healthy (free of illness), Full belly (Hunger = unhappy children), Well rested (Fatigue = unhappy children), Clean (Face, clothing, etc.).
