Session Details

ABSOLUTELY NO PHOTOGRAPHIC, VIDEO, FILM, DIGITAL, TAPE, CASSETTE, OR RECORDING DEVICES OF ANY KIND ARE PERMITTED DURING A SESSION.

Parties being photographed must be dressed, made up and prepared at the exact designated start time. Sessions will begin and end promptly as scheduled. Amy captures the “essence” of your children; the finer details (combed hair, clean faces, jewelry etc.) are the parents’ responsibility. In order for your child to be comfortable with Amy, and therefore get more natural smiles, she may ask you to step away for a moment if you are comfortable with that. Often times children react better when they are not being given instructions like “Cheese!” from several people.

Terms & Conditions

Proofing Session & Print Orders

If your package includes product, you will make your choices on those items at this time. This proofing session will last approximately 1 hour. During the proofing session, you will view images on a computer and/or printed proofs. By ordering prints you accept that the prints will look like the images you viewed in your proofing session and Amy Salessi Photography will require you to sign a document to that effect before placing any print order. Additional family members are welcome to attend the proofing session to assist in the ordering and to order for themselves. To avoid confusion, please group all family orders (grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc) into the order under the client’s name. At delivery the client is responsible for dispensing orders. All print orders must be placed at the time of your proofing session. PAYMENTS ARE FINAL AND ARE NOT REFUNDABLE. It is recommended that you prepare lists of the types and quantities of prints that you expect to order prior to the session given the time limit. While you are free to add items to your order, any removal of items in this order, once you have left the studio, will incur a $50.00 fee which will be billed at the time your portraits arrive. Canvas print orders are final once placed. After date of your proofing session, all ordered images will be archived for three months and unordered images will be purged. Images can be unarchived with a minimum order of $300.00.

Online Proofing

Online proofing may also be available in the event an in person ordering session is not possible to schedule but is the decision of Amy Salessi Photography. Online ordering galleries will only be available for two (2) days, and all orders and payments must be received within two (2) days. After the expiration of the two (2) days, the online gallery will expire and a re-hosting charge of $25 will be added to your final payment if you cannot order within that time. The re-hosting charge will allow for an additional 5 days to place your order. No orders will be processed without having received payment in full for the order.

Completed Orders

Completed print orders may be picked up during normal business hours. You will be notified when your prints are ready and, at that time, you will be provided with alternative times to pick up your photographs. While we anticipate that print orders will be filled in approximately 2 weeks, Amy Salessi Photography makes no guarantees in this regard. Rush orders can be placed for an additional charge of $50.

Amy Salessi chooses which images to edit prior to the proofing session. Basic edits include color adjustments, sharpening, overall smoothing, etc. Any additional edits requested will be billed at $50/hr. This includes any body slimming, merging two pictures together, adding in backgrounds, etc.
Every image is NOT edited in color and black/white. It is up to Amy to decide what looks best when editing and show that to the client. Requests can be made for additional pictures in black/white.

The amount of proofs shown varies from session to session. Amy has the final decision in how many to show the client. Full sessions average 30-50 images depending on how the session went (if kids cooperated, client was on time, etc.)
