POLICIES AND PROCEDURES OF KIMBERLY MEADOWS PHOTOGRAPHY
WITHOUT EXCEPTION, all prints, products, and digital files provided by Kimberly Meadows Photography are protected under copyright of Kimberly Meadows Photography. This copyright is non-transferrable. Purchase of prints, products, or digital files does NOT signify a transfer of ownership of any copyrights. Please refer to the Limited Release document provided with your digital files for further information on how you may legally use your purchased or provided digital files. Please also adhere to the U.S. Copyright Act, in your usage of photographic prints and products, outlined below:
The U.S. Copyright Act (Title 17, United States Code) is designed to protect photographers and other artists by granting them the exclusive right to distribute, copy, edit and publish their photography by license, transfer, or sale. The Copyright Act prohibits anyone from copying, scanning, editing or sharing photographic prints, images, or media without the written permission of the photographer. Violation of the Copyright Act can incur both civil and criminal penalties.
>> Once a photography session has been performed, your session fee is non-refundable, as it covers the time and skills invested by Kimberly Meadows Photography up to and through that point. There is a $500 minimum purchase amount when booking a session with Kimberly Meadows Boudoir
>> We require full payment for prints and products at the end of your ordering session (via cash, check, or credit). No order will be designed or submitted until paid in full.
>> No online galleries or blog/social media sneak peeks will be posted until all payments are made.
>> All items ordered during your in-person ordering session will be delivered directly to Kimberly Meadows Photography. We prefer that our clients pick up their orders directly from us. However, prints and products may be shipped to you at an additional cost, and must include insurance.
>> Items ordered via online galleries (by family and friends) will be shipped directly from our lab. PLEASE report any damages due to shipping to us within 24 hours of receiving your item. We have office hours every day of the week, and check voicemail often during non-office hours.
>> Kimberly Meadows Photography reserves the right to reschedule any session due to photographer illness, personal emergency, or inclement weather. If a session cannot be rescheduled due to photographer cancellation, we will refund your paid session fee.
>> Clients reserve the right to reschedule any portrait session within 7 business days before your scheduled date at no additional fee. Rescheduling after the 7 business day policy before the scheduled date of your session will forfeit the deposit amount paid to Kimberly Meadows Photography at time of booking unless otherwise stated by Kimberly Meadows.
>> If you prefer to cancel your session, instead of rescheduling, you may forfeit your $175 deposit fee paid at time of booking.
>> Kimberly Meadows Photography provides archival-quality photographic prints and products, color corrected & calibrated to print EXACTLY as we see on our Kimberly Meadows Photography computer, by our professional print lab. Any digital photos you see (on our website, blog, social media sites, or that have been provided directly to you) may vary from their intended appearance, depending on your computer's monitor and settings. In addition, Kimberly Meadows Photography cannot guarantee the results or quality of photographic prints made by clients or by clients' chosen labs. For consistent, quality results made to last a lifetime, please purchase your prints directly from Kimberly Meadows Photography.
>> Digital files purchased or provided are for personal archival purposes. We include a print release for photographic prints only, in sizes 8x12" and smaller. Digital files may NOT be used to make your own albums, canvases, or any other photo products, without our express written permission.
>> Please back up all digital copies of your photographs in 1-2 places. We recommend an external hard drive or flash drive, as well as online/cloud storage. Kimberly Meadows Photography will make every effort to retain your files for up to 3 months from the date of your session. If you have misplaced or lost your digital files there will be a $75 restocking fee for Kimberly Meadows Photography to re send files.
>> Portraits: your $175 deposit is due immediately upon reservation of your session. We often collect the session fee at your pre-session consultation, via check or cash. However, you may also mail your check, or pay your session fee online, upon request. We will not reserve a date or time without payment.
>> Kimberly Meadows Photography strives to have your portraits ready to view and order within 2-3 weeks after your session. However, due to the level of attention we provide to your images, your wait may be longer. We appreciate your patience!
By booking your session you agree to all policies and procedures set by Kimberly Meadows Photography. All terms are non negotiable and legally enforced by the state of Ohio and Kentucky.
