Susanna Stables Photography will do its best to produce more than discussed with the Client but there is no guarantee that any particular number of proofs will be produced. Proofs will be available to view at a viewing appointment within 2-3 weeks of your session.
The proofs provided in the gallery are final, images that do not meet the exacting standards of Susanna Stables Photography are deleted in the first part of the editing process and are non-recoverable.
Whilst every effort is made to ensure images presented in the galleries are edited to the highest standards the Photographer makes no commitment to the extent by which images will be ‘fixed’. For the avoidance of doubt you can be assured the Photographer will endeavor to correct any non-permanent blemishes and make changes to the image that improve the finished result.
On viewing your gallery you (the Client) are responsible for pointing out any additional editing you may feel is necessary BEFORE placing your order. We are unable to accept responsibility for issues with images that are noticed after your product has been ordered unless it can be proven that they were not visible at the time of ordering (e.g. Obscured by the Copyright Watermark). If the Client feels extensive re-touching is necessary for their own satisfaction then there may be an additional charge for this.
Susanna Stables Photography shall be entitled to use it’s judgment regarding the style and artistic input in the production of pictures. This includes but not limited to poses, props, and the number of images taken. Due to weather and the willingness of subjects it may not be possible to capture all the pictures requested, or images of the Clients full expectations. In the event of uncooperative children at a session of any kind, for any reason, Susanna Stables may not be able to capture any, or all the images the Client may have requested or expected. The Client is responsible for all children at all sessions.
