The session fee pays for the time and talent of the photographer and includes:

• a telephone/in person consultation to understand your requirements and needs
• the time and talent of the photographer with no time restriction
• the use of props and accessories required for the session
• a gallery of about 20 images (carefully selected and edited by the photographer) from where you can make your selection

  1. The payment of the session fee is required at booking to secure the date. It is non-refundable but transferable to another date should you cancel 48 hours before.
  2. The session does NOT include digital files or products. They can be purchased separately.
  3. Photography by Valentina reserves the copyright of the photographs and the right to use them in advertising, marketing pieces, competitions and reproduction.  All images are copyrighted by Photography by Valentina, even those you purchase.
  4. Copying, scanning or reproducing images is strictly prohibited. Print-screening images from this website is also against the law. Please DO NOT COPY or save photos from my Facebook page, website or other social media. If you order your files we will provide web-seized watermarked files of the photos. Please keep the logo and do not alterate the image.

  6. Gallery will stay live for 3 days within you have to make your order. Gallery can be activated again when expired with an admin fee of £25 that will allow the access for another 3 days.

  8. Album, frames, prints and all the products are not refundable. Orders cannot be cancelled for the custom nature of the products.
  9. If your child is sick please give me at least 24 hours notice and we will reschedule at no cost. I am aware emergencies can happen with babies. However, if there is no call,  50% of the session fee will not be refunded and an additional 50% need to be paid for the next session. A delay of 30 minutes is considered as no show.
  10. If you have or are having a boy, please DO NOT CIRCUMCISE your child before your session. We will be swaddling your baby tightly while he is naked, and moving him from one position to another constantly during the session. This is very painful for a child who has just been circumcised. We will NOT photograph a newborn who has been circumcised less than 6 days prior to the session.
