Because we have experienced several session no-shows this summer , we are having to require a non-refundable deposit be paid to reserve a session slot. Please keep in mind that when we reserve a slot of time for a session, we turn away other clients for that time frame. If someone simply does not show up for a session, that eliminates part of the income that keeps About You Photography Inc in business. It does not matter what the reason for the no-show, the fact is that the time slot in question effectively is dead time, and at times, goes into the negative as we’ve driven to location shoots miles away from the studio and had a few no shows. That means the fuel used, vehicle wear, time spent driving, etc, causes a negative balance for that time frame.
There is a $25 (Check or Money order) non-refundable deposit if paying by cash, check, or money order or, if paying deposit via paypal, $25.75 to reserve your session if being photographed in our studio, $50.00 (check or money order) or $51.50 non-refundable deposit if being done on location elsewhere. Full payment is due at the time of session as well as signed contract. We will not photograph any sessions in which the contract and payment due is not completed.
