Edinburgh Family & newborn photographer

Policies | READ IN FULL *

Thank you for choosing me to capture your family memories! These policies are in place so that there are no surprises. I want your experience to be the best possible.

By paying the booking deposit, you acknowledge that you have read and understood these terms and conditions and agree to abide by them.

Use of photos: I would love to use images taken at your session for promotional purposes for my business. Photos from your session will appear on the blog post and social media. Here are examples of what I am speaking of: PHOTO GALLERY | BLOG | INSTAGRAM. Please let me know if you are NOT happy with me sharing your photos.

  • Travel Fee: If the shoot location is further than 15 miles from the postcode EH14, please add 0.50p/mile to your session fee.
  • Cancellations or need to reschedule: Life happens. I know that illness and unexpected events come up. Please give me as much notice as possible if a need to reschedule comes up. I will exchange the same courtesy should a life event come up.
  • Cancellation due to bad weather conditions: We will work together to find a time to reschedule. We live in Scotland, and the weather changes very quickly. The session cannot be cancelled because of the bad weather earlier than 2 hours before. It might surprise us.
  • No RAW files are available for sale. You will receive edited images only. I do not give RAW files or unedited images under any circumstance. I will decide which images are edited and viewed by the Client. It is understood that I will not deliver every exposure taken. The client agrees to abide by my editing decisions.
  • Re-editing of any images is strictly prohibited. This includes adding filters. Only cropping for printing is allowed.
  • Final Sales: Due to the custom nature of photography, all sales are final.
  • Payment options: Pay via cash, bank transfer, or PayPal.
  • Deposit: Booking deposit is £100. The deposit is due when booking to secure your date and current prices. DEPOSIT IS NON-REFUNDABLE. The booking deposit will be applied towards the total session fee. The remaining balance is due on the day of the photography session.
  • Deposit Deadline: The booking deposit must be paid within the date specified on your invoice. Failure to make the deposit payment within this time frame may result in the session date and time being made available to other clients.
  • Agreement Acceptance: By paying the booking deposit, you acknowledge that you have read and understood these terms and conditions and agree to abide by them.
  • Packages/ Collections: The outstanding balance for the chosen collection is due on the day of the session. For the package, a deposit of £100 is due at the time of your booking, and the remainder of the fee (for all sessions) is due on the day of your first session. Unless otherwise agreed.
  • Additional session time is £200/hour, which will be added to your final invoice.
  • Locations: You can select one or two spots when choosing a Story or Story Album Collection. If you pick two locations, please add £100 to your session fee. Both locations cannot be further apart than 10 minutes by car. The £30 travel fee will be added to your final invoice if the location exceeds that.
  • Online Gallery: Within three weeks of your session, a private gallery will be available to view your images. I will choose the best photos for your gallery. Your gallery will be available for viewing and ordering for two weeks. You may share your gallery link with family and friends.
  • Digital images: I will keep a copy of your photos for six months after the session, after which I won't be able to provide you with copies of your photos anymore, so please back up your files.
  • Prints and albums: Your products will be ready 4-6 weeks after your ordering appointment.
  • Copyright: All photographs created by Dorota Markowska Photography are copyright protected. Clients who purchase digital files may create reprints for personal use only. All other uses of digital files are prohibited and require the express written consent of the Photographer.

  • Modification of Terms: Dorota Markowska reserves the right to modify these terms and conditions at any time. Any changes will be communicated to clients in writing.
  • Liability: Dorota Markowska will not be held liable for any accidents, injuries, or damages that may occur during the photography session. Clients are responsible for their personal belongings during the session.
  • Print release: Your digital images come with a print release. A print release allows you to make other prints, including on various material(s) of the images they have received from you, the photographer. A print release is geared explicitly toward personal usage.
  •  Model Release Dorota Markowska Photography, its legal representatives, heirs and assigns may use any and all proofs and prints for purposes of advertising, display, and brochures, including, but not limited to, use on the Photographer’s website and social media and in photography contests, or for any other reasonable purpose without notification of, released by, or compensation to the Clients.
