    Portrait Session Terms & Conditions

    I will always do my best to fulfil and, hopefully, even exceed your photography needs. But it’s often best for everyone to have some terms in writing.

    Please read the following terms carefully and tick "I agree" for each one. If you don't agree on something, please give me a call!

    1. SESSION FEE: The session fee pays for my time and talent and for your in-person ordering appointment. It does not include any finished portraits or digital files. The session fee is due in advance of your portrait session to secure your appointment. Session fees are non-refundable, however, with 48 hours notice your session can be rescheduled in case of an emergency.

    2. SICKNESS: I understand that children can be unpredictable and fall ill at any time (adults too!). In the event of sickness prior to the session, you agree to make every possible effort to inform me no later than 2 hours prior to the start time of the photography session. The session can be transferred to a new date which will be at the convenience of both parties within a maximum 2 month period. I reserve the right to re-schedule outside of this time limit due to any existing commitments.

    3. AUTHORISATIONS: Please note that some outdoor locations (parks, buildings) might require an authorisation. I am happy to check with the location prior to the photo session but cannot guaranty their acceptance.

    4. LIABILITY: I will not be held liable for any injury incurred by you or your family, or any damage to your property during the photo session. You understand that I am there to document your family as it happens. Leaving children alone with me should be viewed as leaving children without any adult supervision. I will not coach, advise, or stop children from doing any activity unless I feel they are in mortal danger.

    5. VIEWING & ORDERING SESSION: You will view your portraits at a personally-attended viewing and ordering session. You will be asked to order at this time. Please make sure all decision makers are present, as additional viewing and ordering session incur a €50 fee. The in-person viewing and ordering session will take place in your home or my office in Santry. Skype is also an option.

    6. IMAGE SELECTION: While I capture many images during your session, you will see only those images selected by me for previewing. Duplicates and images with eyes closed, heads turned, etc. may not be shown and are removed from my archives permanently after the rendering is complete.

    7. STORAGE OF PHOTOGRAPHS: I aim to store your image files for as long as I can, but after 3 months from your session date, I will no longer be responsible for storing them.

    8. PAYMENT OF PRODUCTS ORDER: Due to the custom nature of the work, payment for your order must be placed in full and is subject to a 50% cancellation fee should you change your mind about an order after it is placed. Once an order is sent to the labs, it is deemed non-refundable. Payments may be made by cash, cheque, bank transfer or credit card. Please note, if paying by cheque your order/appointment will not be secured until your cheque has cleared. Payment plans available on request.

    9. PRODUCTS DELIVERY: Please allow 4-6 weeks for your order to be completed. Some orders may take longer. Individual prints may be sent using standard AnPost services. Other products, such as frames or photo books may be required to be collected from my office due to the fragile nature of the products or value of their content. In this case, collection must be made by appointment.

    10. DEFECTS: Any complaints regarding an issue with photographic products such as manufacturer’s fault/defect, shall be sent to me in writing (email or post) within 14 days of receipt of the products. I will rectify the problem and endeavour to supply the photographic product to you as soon as possible. After the 14 day period, no returns on photographic products will be accepted and no refunds will be made.

    11. COPYRIGHT: The Copyright Act protects photographers by giving me the exclusive right to reproduce your photographs. Johanna King Photography retains full, unlimited, world-wide copyright on all photographs supplied. These photographs are solely for your personal display purposes. Violations include, but are not limited to, making illegal copies, scanning or printing from home. It is illegal to copy or reproduce these photographs in any manner without my permission. This is a standard condition for most professional photographers. Please understand, the photographer wishes to maintain complete control over the print quality, finishes and presentation of the images.

    12. PROMOTION: I shall only make reproductions for you or persons authorised by you, or for my portfolio, samples, self-promotions, advertising, entry in photographic contests or art exhibitions, editorial use, or for display within my office. If I want to make other uses, I shall not do so without first obtaining permission from you. If you specifically do not want any of your pictures used for self-promotion, please let me know ahead of the session and I will respect your wishes.

    13. PRICES: All quotes shall remain valid for 28 days. All other charges in this Agreement are based on my current price list. This price list may be adjusted without notice and future orders shall be charged at the prices in effect at the time when the order is placed.

    14. FORCE MAJEUR: If I cannot perform this Agreement due to a fire or other casualty, strike, act of God, or other cause beyond the control of the parties, or due to illness, then I shall return your booking fee but shall have no further liability with respect to the Agreement. This limitation on liability shall also apply in the event that photographic materials are damaged in processing, lost through camera malfunction, lost in the mail, or otherwise lost or damaged without fault on my part. In the event I fail to perform for any other reason, I shall not be liable for any amount in excess of the retail value of your order. I have a full public liability and professional indemnity Insurance.

    15. APPLICABLE LAW: This Agreement shall be governed in accordance with the Irish Law.

    16. PERSONAL DATA I will store your name and address details on a private database. These details will not be made available to third parties. Should you wish to have your details removed from my database, please advise me in writing.
