Father Christmas Terms and Conditions
MINI SESSIONS - Special T&C's
Your allocated slot is 15 minutes, If you are late for your slot, this will eat into your shooting time and the opportunity we have to capture your images will be reduced. Please arrive as close to your session time as possible, there will be an area where you can wait and get yourselves ready. The session is enough time to settle your children in and capture some sweet shots of them. I am aiming to capture at least 3 lovely shots for you. This will depend largely on each individual child on the day. I will always do all I can to build a rapport with children and to get the best out of them and mostly it all works out as planned. If for any reason your little one isn't playing ball regardless of my/your efforts, I am sadly unable to extend or re-book the session for you as this will be out of our control. I suggest we all embrace it and you may receive images with comedy value that really did capture 'the moment', these sometimes make the best Christmas cards too! You can help by ensuring your child is well slept, well fed and prepared. If your little one is teething or has a cold please administer or bring suitable remedies to ensure they're as comfortable as possible. Try to keep the day of the session calm and relaxing for them and leave lots of time to get to us so you are not rushing as this will have an impact on your little one and they will feel any stress or tension their parents have. You may also want to bribe your child with a treat, an activity or special trip.
Please DO NOT give your child sugary treats, foods or drinks in the lead up to the session. Please read your Session Guide carefully as it details the studio address, contact details and what to wear. Next steps regarding viewing, choosing and receiving your FIVE digital images will be given on the day. I will have glitter stars available to use with older children, I will be putting a little in their hands and asking them to blow it. I cannot take responsibility for your child eating or getting glitter in their eyes. We work carefully with the glitter in order to reduce any risks to your child but ultimately you allow your child to use the glitter at your own risk. Please inform us on the day if you are unhappy for your child to take part in blowing glitter stars from their hands. Mini Sessions cannot be moved or cancelled once booked. Please understand that I am dealing with lots of bookings over these few days and have slotted them all together perfectly. My studio is also set up specifically for mini sessions during this special period so these sessions will not be available outside the allocated dates (my studio does not normally look this way ;>), Mini Sessions therefore cannot be re-booked in the event of illness. If your child is too sick to attend the session then you have the option to exchange the £ value of your Mini Session to one of my standard Milestone or Outdoor Sessions instead. This must be taken within 6 months of the original date and will be subject to the normal pricing found here www.photographybyfiona.co.uk This exchange option is given as a good will gesture and is only available to children too sick to attend the Mini Sessions on the day of shooting. Exchanges, refunds, cancellations or session movements cannot be accommodated outside of this good will gesture. The regular T&Cs regarding cancellations do not apply to mini sessions and are replaced by these T&Cs. Bookings are for up to 3 children only, these sessions do not include parents or extended family.
