Prints are optional and can be discussed prior to or after your photo session.

Digital Image Delivery

While images are shot during your session, the best ones are a smaller set. I will filter the subset for the most flattering and desirable images. will be edited and delivered in 1 sometimes, 2 weeks. Digital images will be stored in a secure location with private access to viewing and selection for 30 days.

Editing Process

My goal is to get your photos looking as good as possible at the photo session.  All photos are post-processed for color enhancements, optimal exposure and sometimes cropping among other edits.  Skin smoothing and removal of non-permanent artifacts will be applied.  Body and facial shaping is not part of the process. 

Prints

When material prints - paper, canvas, metal, or merchandise - are requested, shipping and handling costs are calculated based the location of the shoot and the destination address.  

Rescheduling

Requests to reschedule a photo shoot within 3 days of your original booking may incur a $50 fee.

Cancellations

For most photo sessions, your deposit can be refunded if requested at least 7 days from your original reservation.

Weather

Your photoshoot can be delayed (same day) or rescheduled due to rain.  Hawaii rain showers are generally brief. Your deposit would remain in effect and put towards your rescheduled shoot. 

Travel

For Oahu location shoots outside the Honolulu/Waikiki area, a Travel Fee is added depending on the specific location. 

Re-Shoots

Every effort is made to get your best photos during the session, and when necessary, post-processing can fix some issues. However, re-shoots due to your dissatisfaction with clothing, facial expressions, hair, wind or other matters are beyond my control.  For those reasons and to ensure your satisfaction, a 25% discount will be applied to a re-shoot if scheduled within 2 weeks from initial session.
