Photographs are delivered electronically via a secure online album to the email address at the time of booking. These files are uploaded at full resolution so download sizes may be large. Delivery requests for other methods are available for an additional fee using approved media, customer purchase media is not accepted. However;  you are more than welcome to download them and store them on any type of media you wish.

Digital Retention
Although we try to keep your photos available for as long as possible, we do not guarantee the retention of your photos 90 days after your session. Please download your photos accordingly and keep them in a very safe place.

Timeline
Professional photos require a great deal of time and effort, I promise that we work as quickly as possible, but there is no guaranteed turnaround time.

We cannot make any guarantee to products ordered from our professional print labs.

Pricing
Pricing, promotions, and services subject to change at anytime.

During your session
I want you to have the most unique photos possible. I encourage props, clothing, etc. but do prohibit the use of any electronic devices, including but not limited to, cell phones, cameras, etc.

You are responsible for the cost and booking of any locations not owned by Shannon's Photography, LLC. There is a travel fee ($50+0.58/mile) for any location(s) 20 miles away from my studio. Mileage calculated both ways.

Timeliness & Cancellations
I plan my schedule accordingly, if you are more than 15 minutes late I consider your appointment abandoned and the entire session fee is forfeited.

In the event you must cancel the session for any reason, you will forfeit 50% of the session fee if you notify me in writing 48hrs prior to the scheduled time. Notices given after the 48hr grace period, will forfeit the entire session fee. Rescheduling is considered a cancellation and subject to the same policy.

Legal Stuff
This agreement cannot be transferred to anyone else without our permission. Provisions of this agreement found unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
