Headshot Deposit and Cancellation Policy
Upon booking, a $100 non-refundable deposit is required, which will be applied to your session’s total cost. Should you need to reschedule, please notify me at least five days in advance, and your deposit will be honored for one rescheduling. Any subsequent postponements will necessitate a new deposit.
Cancellations or rescheduling made less than five days prior to your scheduled session will result in the forfeiture of your deposit. No-shows not only forfeit the deposit but may also impact future bookings with us. Exceptional circumstances will be considered, but let’s keep it professional and ensure timely communication. Your commitment is appreciated, and I look forward to our session.
The remaining payment (session fee minus deposit) must be paid by the day of your shooting. Credit card, cash, Zelle, Venmo or Cashapp is fine, but no checks will be accepted.
Policy on Reshoots and Refunds:
Our sessions at F-Sequence Studio are built on clear communication and collaboration. Throughout the shoot, we’ll review images together, ensuring that the direction aligns with your vision. It’s essential for both of us to actively share feedback regarding lighting, framing, backgrounds, and hair and makeup. Given the subjective nature of photography as an art form, it’s crucial to understand that reshoots, revisions, or refunds are not typically offered. Exceptions are made only in cases of technical issues that hinder the delivery of the agreed-upon, high-quality images. An example would be if the power goes out, camera dies, etc.
How to ensure good results:
Again, communication! Share your vision and wardrobe with me and absolutely ask questions! Never walk blindly into a photo studio with no idea what we’re shooting, or put your shoot entirely in the hands of a photographer whom you’ve only just met.
If I reach out and ask about wardrobe, it does nobody any favors if it takes 4 days to reply with an out of focus photo of a pile of rumpled clothes on a bed. Your headshots are not the time to get lazy.
I’ve had clients literally tell me that they are my mannequins and to pose them. How do you think those shoots would have turned out if I went along with that? No, instead I make every effort to create a vision with each client and get them excited for their shoot. If they’re still not excited to work with me, then we can always shake hands and walk away.
