If the client has been contacted and advised to reschedule due to the photographer’s concerns about weather, and the client still proceeds with the session and it rains, limiting the time and or photos that were able to be taken, the client will be charged for an additional session at the photographer’s session rate to reschedule or shoot additional photos. Due to photography equipment, it is up to the photographer’s discretion if bad weather persists to cancel the session, during the session.If the client has been contacted and advised to reschedule due to the photographer’s concerns about weather, and the client decides to go ahead and reschedule, the client will not be charged to do so. The client will then be put on first alert for the next available session time.
In the event that the client would like additional photos due to appearance out of Nikki Amari Photography’s control (hair/makeup, etc.) in the previous session, the client will be charged for an additional session at the photographer’s rate to reschedule or shoot additional photos.

If the client wants to do a session at a location that charged for access, the client will be responsible to cover fees associated with shooting there, and all parking fees. They are also responsible for organizing the access and any permits related to doing so.

While I do capture many images during your session, you will see only those images selected by the photographer for previewing. Each finished image is carefully rendered by the photographer to ensure maximum artistry and technical perfection. Images with eyes closed, heads turned, duplicates, etc. will not be shown and are removed from my archives permanently. All images are photographed in color, but are available in black and white.
Professional screening and processing of your session takes approximately two to three weeks, but could possibly take longer.
Minimum Print Order
By booking with Nikki Amari Photography, I understand that there is a $50 order minimum. This includes, but not limited to, all professional prints, digital files, and canvas prints.
Gallery Viewing and Ordering Policy
As noted above prints and digitals are separate from the session fee. You do not have to purchase any prints or digitals until you have been given your gallery. From there you will have 14 days (2 weeks ) to view, order, and share with friends. If your order is not placed within the 14 day ( 2 week ) time span a $50 archival fee will be due prior to reopening your gallery for an additional 14 days ( 2 weeks ).
