Receipt of this agreement indicates that you have read and agreed to all policies, terms and conditions as outlined below.
Session Policies, Session Fee & Cancellations: The session fee is to reserve my time and is not considered payment towards images and therefore is non-refundable. Exceptions to this include (1) Your consumer rights as protected by law or (2) I fail to fulfill my obligations in regards to the time charged in relation to that which was stated would be provided. Fee is non-refundable if the client cancels for any reason within 48 hours of the session. Exceptions only by agreement with Tiffany Johnson Photography (aka TJP). On the day you cancel, you may nominate another person to take your appointment and have any payments made credited to their session or you may reschedule up to 30 days from original session date.

Completing Session: If a photo session has begun, but completion must be delayed due to weather, client request, emergency or otherwise, the client will be entitled to complete the session within the next 30 days and pay only the prices listed or agreed at the time the photo session began, regardless of price increases. This remains valid for 30 days from the day of session.
