Session Client Agreement

Welcome to the Steph Jordan Photography Family!

I wanted to say first, Thank you for choosing me to capture some precious moments in your family's life!

Here’s what you can expect during your session.

  • Before your session, you and I will discuss different locations that will best suit your vision and which package fits your needs.
  • Payment: The session retainer fee is not refundable and due in full upon booking. Your session date and time are not secured until the retainer fee is paid in full.
  • RESCHEDULING: If you or someone in your photo group is ill, showing signs of illness, or has a fever, please provide a notice before your session as soon as possible so we can reschedule for a better time. If we have inclement weather, I will be in touch with you and closely watch the weather app and make a final call within one hour of your shoot. If a reschedule is needed, we will work together to find a date that works for both your schedule and mine. More than two reschedules on the client's behalf due to poor planning that is not due to illness or weather will result in a 50.00 fee per reschedule.
  • If you are more than 10 minutes late to your session, it’s likely that we will have to reschedule, with a $40 rescheduling fee. A no-call no-show will result in a forfeit of your retainer fee. If you find out within 24 hours that you are not going to make it to the session, don’t worry, just give me a call and we’ll work together to reschedule a new time that works for the both of us.
  • What you wear is your choice; there are no refunds post-production if you are not satisfied with your wardrobe selection. We can reshoot the session for an additional fee. For ideas on what to wear, refer to the Steph Jordan Photography Pinterest page for ideas.
  • After your digital images are delivered, you are granted unlimited, non-exclusive rights to print at your printer of choice. Steph Jordan Photography will retain the copyright of the photographic images you have paid for. However, SJP provides the option to print through a professional print lab as a bonus perk!

  • The client will not hold the photographer or the property owner liable for any injury that may occur during the session. The client and all members attending the session will respect the studio and/or property and assume liability for any expenses that occur.
  • Please know that I have my own aesthetic and retouching style; you can view these in action on Please review my style of editing before booking to ensure my style is what you are looking for in your gallery.
