General Policies

The following is what you should expect when booking a shoot with Sarah Stewart Photography. We strive to provide you with timeless images, and a relaxed yet professional shoot environment.

Session Details
You can expect a relaxed and non-rushed environment when shooting together. I want to capture your moments, your personalities. Trust in us to provide you with images that you can cherish forever.
A contract will be signed at the studio before the shoot. All models must be 18 years of age, unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Booking a Session
You can contact me through e-mail or phone to consult about a shoot. Once you choose a date, you will make a deposit via etransfer, cash, debit (via papal), or credit card. Your deposit amount is 50% of your package cost and is required to reserve a date. If you can't make the date you reserved, you can can reschedule for another date.

Once you have reserved a date with your deposit, you will be sent a document containing shoot specifics (what to bring, how to prepare, etc.). From there, we will continue to consult through phone and e-mail about your shoot.

The remainder of your package price is due 24 hours prior to shoot time.

Ordering
When your proofs are ready to view, you will be sent a “contact sheet” of images via e-mail. You may then choose the predetermined number of images from your package to be processed. The processed images will be sent to you as ready-to-print digital files.

You may order additional images above the number included in you package for a per image fee.

Positive Vibes
The right attitude can make or break a shoot! Please come prepared to have fun, let loose, and be yourself.

Parents – don't worry about fussy or rowdy little ones. We are parents and thus are extremely patient with children. We also allow for feedings, snacks, diaper changes, etc.

Models – just be relaxed and have fun! If you are nervous about posing, coaching is available. If you are nervous about looking good, don't be! We will be sure to use the best lighting, angles, and post processing for your body type and really show your best side!

Fully participating with a great attitude will ensure a positive working environment and spectacular photos!

After our Shoot

You will be provided a digital contact sheet with proofs within 2 weeks of your shoot date. Be aware that you may not see every single frame that we shoot. I reserve the right to exercise artistic control and discard images that do not meet my standards.

Payment
I accept etransfer, cash, check (must be cleared before shoot date), debit (via paypal), and credit card. A 50% deposit is due upon booking and the remainder of your package cost is due 24 hours before your shoot time.
