NO CALL/NO SHOW

If you are 30 minutes late to your session, Crystal has permission to leave the location, and you will not be refunded.

Editing

Crystal will edit your session using photoshop to ensure the best lighting and quality of your photos. Minor changes in photoshop might be made for artistic purposes such as opening closed eyes, when possible, removing minor blemishes or bug bites from a face, liquifying occassionally (making a maternity bump more round in a close up or slimming arms), removing objects that are distracting to the eye and within my ability to remove. All of these edits that Crystal decides to edit for the artistic quality of the photo are included in your session fee. I do not heavily photoshop nor digitally alter your appearance, teeth, hair, or clothing. Any additional requests from my initial shared edited photos will be a photoshop outsourcing fee of $35 per photo.

Normal editing turn around time is within 2 weeks from the date of your session. I no longer offer a rush edit option. Your gallery will be available to you through shootproof and a link + password shared via email!

Zero Tolerance

Harassment, discrimination, threatening, foul language, abuse or any illegal or inappropriate behavior are not tolerated. If you act in this manner, your session will be canceled or ended immediately.
