Booking a photo session means that you, the Client and me, the Photographer, agree to the session.
This legally binding contract represents the entire understanding of the requirements, schedule and payment terms of a photo session. All sessions will happen in the mentioned in the advert location.
A 50% of session value deposit is taken on booking. This secures your slot with me. This is a non-refundable deposit and should you cancel for any reason you will lose your deposit. Your deposit is taken off the total amount owing for the session. 
Payment can be made by cash or bank transfer. The remaining Payment must be paid on the photo shoot latest. Any photos taken will not be released until payment is made. 
All photographs shall be previewed and downloaded by the Client. Because it is a digital file and not a physical product, unfortunately, no returns can be made.
Prints, wall arts, albums, photo gifts can be purchased additionally.
On any MINI SESSIONS, cancellations are not acceptable. During the nature of the session (eg Christmas mini session I shoot just on a few specific days in the year) any cancelling or non-shown on the session will result in a losing deposit fee result. 
Mini Photo Sessions take approximately 20 minutes and the schedule is tight in according to other Clients so ANY late arrival will result in a cancellation.
The photographer is not responsible for any injuries inflicted upon any participating parties. Client(s) will be responsible for their children and for themselves and release the photographer from any claims against their person or their business (Paulina Bieleninik Photography). The photographer is not liable for any damage that has arisen for the other party. Unless there is gross negligence or intent on the part of the Photographer or persons engaged by her. The liability is, in any case, limited to the amount of the invoice or, if and insofar as there is insured damage, to the amount actually paid out under the insurance. The photographer is not liable for colour deviations or photo prints on products that are not supplied by her. The photographer is not liable for the delivery of less or less good photos than normal due to unforeseen circumstances that are beyond the control of the photographer. Think of children who do not cooperate, instructions that are not followed, weather conditions, illness or injury. The Client understands and accepts that the photographic coverage will be as Photographer's professional expertise determines. Special requests are not binding instructions although every effort is made to comply with the Client’s wishes. In the unlikely event of total photographic failure or cancellation of the contract by Paulina Bieleninik liability shall be limited to a full refund of all monies paid. 

To keep everyone safe the maximum amount of people that can be in my home studio in the same time is 5.

The images on this site are from a large number of sessions and it is not possible to offer every pose or set up in each session. Every session is unique to each client. If a particular pose, prop or photo is wanted, the Client will discuss any requests before the day of the session.
The Photographer will make every effort to comply with requests for specific photos. However, this will be dependant on the willingness/co-operation of subjects, it may not be possible for all or any of the images requested or expected to be captured.
In the event of an unsettled baby, some requested props or poses may not be suitable and the Photographer will use alternative props or poses. Please note, not all poses and shots are guaranteed.
The Photographer will do everything she can to produce good quality images. However, if your baby or child won’t settle or co-operate resulting in little or no images taken then the Photographer cannot be held responsible. In this instance the Photographer will offer the chance to re-shoot at a time suitable for both parties.
Client must inform me on booking if anyone attending photography session suffers from any health conditions including allergies, photosensitive epilepsy, medical issues, physical difficulties and disabilities etc.
The Client is responsible for the children's safety during the photography session. The Client must therefore ensure that a responsible adult, other than the Photographer, is present at all times to supervise the children.
