Mini Sessions - and the reasons I do not offer them :)

Mini Session is another name for cheap photography! It takes some time to make the clients to relax, and to get the best light and angle in order to create the beautiful images the photographer – and the client – want to achieve. You just cannot get the best results in a rush .

Mini Sessions also take just about as long to do as a regular session. The only savings in time is that I would be spending less time photographing my clients (30 min) but everything else that I would normally do for a normal session is just about the same. Client communications, payment collection, prepping and setup, photographing, post productions, selling, image delivery and so on are absolutely the same.

And I fully believe in order to get those raw, vulnerable, candid, joyful and passionate images I have to spend some time with the subject that is being photographed.

Mini Sessions are, in my point of view, the fast food of the photography. And this is the reason I do not offer them.

 

Digital Images: Your right to print your story in the sizes you wish, forever.

When purchasing a digital image, you are purchasing the right to make unlimited, royalty free, a lifetime license to make prints for personal use such as electronic and hardcopy form. These images are not to be sold or given to any third parties or contests without prior consent.

You will receive your images fully edited, in high resolution, with no watermark logo, to be easily downloaded via gallery.

 

Although each session package include a certain number of images, I also show the families a gallery with extra, non edited ones. In case you want to purchase extra ones, they will be edited and they cost $25 each.

 * In the interest of fairness to all of my clients, please understand that session fees, prices, and business policies are non negotiable.

 

*Prices are subject to change at anytime without notice.  If you have already booked a session, the price you booked it at will be honored.

About my editing process

After your session, I will choose your best images and hand-edit them. Each of your images will be meticulously edited and retouched, making them look simply amazing. Distraction elimination, cropping, contrast, sharpening, blemish removal, skin smoothing, color correction are some of the skills that I utilize regularly to create a gallery of images you’ll be proud to display.

Please note that some images also look best only in black & white and, if you don’t see the colorful version of that image, it’s because, while in my process of editing, after I choose the best ones I’ll make editing choices that will look the most artistic as possible.

And if you are a lover of the timeless quality of black & white photos, know that as I hand-edit each of your images I will add a black & white version of your favorite ones, in case that image will convert well (not all images converts nicely in black & white), each one checked for perfect tone and contrast.

In that way, you can have both worlds – images that best fit your personal taste.

Payment

$100 session fee is payable when you book your session and this secures your date and time in the diary. This fee is non-refundable but fully transferable to another date if at least 7 days notice is given. This does not include illness as I understand this can happen at anytime. I always prefer to re-schedule appointments due to illness, as I want to get the very best images. I accept cash, checks, credit cards & Paypal. The remaining is due prior your session day.

Refunds

In the case of camera failure, bad weather, or any other unforeseen incident that prevents Ale Cifali Basher Photography from shooting on a scheduled date, the client will get a full refund of their Session Fee, or rescheduled if desired. If you need to cancel your session, please give me a week notice if possible and I will be more then happy to reschedule a different date and time for your session. There will be no refunds if you fail to attend the activity on the day and at the time listed, when the booking was made.

Model and Print Release

A model and a print release contract will be sent to you by email and will need to be digitally signed prior your session. Minors will need to have their contracts signed by the parents. You can read the contract  here. 

*All images are not to be sold or used commercially or in contests without prior consent.

* In the interest of fairness to all of my clients, please understand that session fees, prices, and business policies are non negotiable.
