Rescheduling & Cancellations

Bad weather, need to reschedule - I keep an eye on the forecast several days leading up to your session, I have spent lots of money on many apps to help make an educate guess on what to do with the predicted weather, then I realized that was silly. We live in St. Louis and the weather is never right. But in the case that rain or snow is expected during your session, I will send an email or call to reschedule with my next available date.

 

If you need to reschedule, as a courtesy, please notify me via email 24 hr. prior to your session time. We will reschedule the session for a date / time that works for both of us. Sessions must be rescheduled within 6 months. There will be a $50 fee for any additional rescheduling.

 

Image Editing& RAW Files

Images are edited as needed to ensure proper color balance, exposure and sharpness. I do not edit images to reduce the look of cellulite, make someone appear thinner, to remove braces etc. Acne removal is available for an additional fee.

RAW files are not for sale.

Images can be purchased as high-resolution jpegs (digital files) only.

All images should be downloaded to a computer to guarantee the best resolution saved.  Loren Ashley Photography is not responsible for any images printed at a lab other than Loren Ashley Photography.

 

Client Gallery Availability

Client galleries are available for 14/21 days depending on the collection you purchase. Prints and other photo products must be purchased within this time period.

Session images will be purged from my hard-drive 60 days after the gallery delivery date, except as needed for promotional purposes, per my sole discretion. I am not responsible for any loss or damage to digital files due to circumstances beyond my control.
