Retainers and a signed contract are due within 24 hours, otherwise the appointment becomes available again. Retainer fees are non-refundable yet they are transferable with 72 or more hours given. This means you may transfer your retainer to another date if 72 or more hours are given. If you cancel with less than 72 hours’ notice, you forfeit your retainer fee and may not reschedule without a new retainer fee. If you must reschedule, the date is moved to your choice of the next three available dates. I cannot guarantee your original day or the week or time will be available though I do my best to accommodate. Re-scheduling due to bad weather may occur at my discretion only. Notification of any session changes or rescheduling can be made by phone along with written notice sent via email for documentation. If an email is sent, a confirmation of receipt must be sent back by the Photographer via email.
