Client Contract

Please complete the Client Contract below to finalise your booking.

The following retainer payment is required to secure the date and time of your photo shoot: Package 1 - $250 (full payment) Package 2 - $350 (full payment) Package 3 - $250 (with balance of $800 due before your shoot day). When this payment is received, your date is reserved and is not available to anyone else. Terms of payment are 3 business days after issue of invoice. If payment is not received by the due date of your invoice, the date you requested will become available to other clients.

The retainer payment is not redeemable for cash and is non-refundable, but it is transferable to another shoot (different date or different shoot type offered by Joanna Kate Photography) or another person, providing they agree with the Terms and Conditions of this contract.

If you are rescheduling due to sickness, unfortunately I can only offer a replacement 'weekday' shoot as my weekends are booked well in advance.

We can’t control Mother Nature! If there are poor weather conditions forecast for the day of your session, such as rain, storm or strong winds, we may need to reschedule. I will call you at least 3 hours before the session to discuss Plan B (based on available weather reports and the potential impact on your shoot) or advise you to reschedule for an (mutually agreeable) alternative date.

I recommend allowing extra time for traffic or other unforeseen circumstances, as it reduces stress levels! Your shoot is generally scheduled during ‘golden hour’ so timing is important and often it's impossible to extend your shoot time due to lack of light. If you’re running late, call or text Joanna Kate Photography as soon as possible.

Your photographs will be viewable via a private online gallery within 14 days of your photo shoot. Your gallery will be active for 10 days, during which time you must select your favourite photos included in your package. Your gallery CANNOT be re-activated after the expiry date. Your selected photos will be edited and supplied to you within a week of your gallery expiry.

Cosmetic enhancement of your photos is available for $25/image (3-5 business days) or $35 (24 hours).

I grant Joanna Kate Photography the right to use the photograph(s) either complete or in part alone or in conjunction with any wording and/or drawings for publicity and/or merchandising and/or editorial purposes. I hereby waive any right that I may have to inspect or approve the finished product or products and the advertising copy or other matter that may be used in connection with them or the use to which they may be applied. Specifically, I agree to the abovementioned use(s):

Within 2-3 days after your shoot, I'd love to provide you with a ‘sneak peek’ of your photographs while you are waiting for your photographs to be edited and prepared for your gallery. The ‘sneak peek’ is a few photographs from your photography shoot (ALWAYS professionally retouched) that are posted on my Joanna Kate Photography Facebook page and/or Joanna Kate Photography Instagram account.
