However, If you are more than 15 minutes late, but are still on your way and have notified me via phone or text, time will be taken from the top of the session. For example, you are scheduled for an hour session and show up 30 minutes late, you will have 30 minutes left of your session.

Client Responsibility:
  

Legal Guardian/Senior has viewed Client Prep Cheat Sheet.

         
Tan lines are a distraction and take away from your photos. Use Sun Block every day. Don’t tan in the natural sun or tanning beds for an entire 2 weeks before your session. You could appear really red or even burn. I also do not recommend using Spray Tanning of any kind, it appears very orange in the images. Tan lines and skin color correction are not included in the complimentary retouching.

The client shall assist and cooperate with the photographer in obtaining the desired photographs, including but not limited to specifying person and/or scenes to be photographed; taking time to pose for photographs at the photographer's directions. Imagine Image & Design/Kara Milianta shall not be responsible for photographs not taken as a result of the client's failure to provide reasonable assistance or cooperation.
