Retainers & Pricing (in further detail)
Retainers are required for each session at booking. All sessions $200+ can be split into smaller payments, but packages less than $200 must be paid in full. The retainer for packages over $200 varies depending on the total price, including tax, but the amount is half of the total. Example: If your package is $400, the retainer is $200 (or you can pay in full, the retainer is still $200). If the session is less than $200, the 'paid in full' amount also acts as your retainer. Retainers are non-refundable. If you would like a refund for any reason the retainer will not be returned to you, only the rest of the amount paid. *Package prices are non-negotiable, and you cannot use promo codes or offers towards other packages that are meant for specific promo packages.
Facebook Appointment Requests
Appointment requests are only approved after a payment has been made. Only paid time slots are secured on my schedule. Clients can pay for packages in-full on this website or smaller payments can be made (depending on your package total) using this link: Paypal.me/charlinjanene. Please make sure that your payment has been made before submitting an appointment request in order to get it approved. Unpaid requests will be denied approximately one hour after being submitted.
Removal of watermarks from free session image files is prohibited. Adding filters, emojis, cropping, or changing the resolution, etc. of the image files is prohibited. No changes can be made to my image files whether a package is paid for or not. You cannot add emojis or anything else and then post the image(s) publicly to social media, that is not the image file I provided, and cannot be altered in any way - it is a negative & false representation of myself and my business.
Regional Price Changes
All Outdoor/Indoor Sessions in surrounding counties of the Fayetteville/Fort Bragg area i.e. Moore & Harnett have their additional fees for travel WAIVED starting May 30, 2021.
Teeth whitening, facial bruising, eye bag or line removal, skin texture adjustments, minor scar & scratch/cut removal, and minor background spot removal or correction are additional services. Minor retouching of any of the items listed start at $25. Major unnatural retouching such as background replacement or removal, removing or adding a person or people, or enhancing facial features (including skin lightening) are not offered services & cannot be outsourced for someone else to alter my work.
Gallery Expiration Policy
If a gallery sits more than 24 hours without selections being made the gallery will expire and archive. You will be charged an additional $15 + tax reactivation fee to remove the images from archive in order to make selections past 24hrs.*No checks or eChecks permitted. Also, images that have been selected will only be available to download for one week. If the photographs have not been downloaded by then you will be charged $25+tax to have the entire album added to my Dropbox account again for download.
Gallery Selections & Downloads
Galleries are created using Dropbox, galleries expire after one week, so please make selections within 24 hours by commenting under each desired image. If selections are not downloaded before the one week deadline ends the gallery will be deleted and cost $25 + tax to have image access added a second time. If images are not selected within 24hrs there is a $15+tax charge. A print release is attached to each gallery. The print release allows printing in-store. You can print anywhere online without it. Once selections have been made in Dropbox albums and the watermarked images have been removed and replaced with the watermark-free image I cannot upload all images again - you've had time to download those images and therefore cannot download any additional images beyond your package amount without paying extra for them. If you have any issues with making your image selections within 24hrs please let me know. I will not send an invoice if you have an emergency or other important matter preventing you from looking at the album. Invoices for $15 or $25 are not automatically sent over, they are done manually according to clients' situations. Do not assume that you will be charged right away after an album archives - it won't happen. *Dropbox album instructions are now sent separately from the Dropbox access email with the 'go to folder' button. Instructions were sent with Dropbox albums originally, but they weren't being read, so that feature is no longer available. Please read & confirm you understand the directions, then your access will be granted. If you still have additional questions after confirmation you have not read the instructions. Only confirm if you've actually read & understand them. Thank you.
*** Please read the gallery instructions thoroughly, they are sent to you before your Dropbox access is emailed. ***
