Studio Policies & Contact Information
Every business has policies to keep communication clear and put everyone on the same page about how things will work. This agreement is between Lynn Clark Studios, LLC, (“I” and “me”), and the client signing the document (“you”).
Please carefully read this document, then sign it to indicate you've read and agree to follow these policies.
YOU'RE BOOKING A BOUDOIR SESSION
You are booking a boudoir session. That means you will be photographed in lingerie and likely nude, and posed in provocative ways. It is likely that I will touch you to adjust your clothing and hair or to direct a pose. I will probably see you with no clothes on. There will be absolutely no sexual activity allowed during your session. If any sexual activity occurs, your session will be terminated immediately and you forfeit your session fee with no opportunity for rescheduling.
YOU'RE AT LEAST 18 YEARS OLD
You must be 18 to do a boudoir session with me. You will provide your birthday at the end of this form for my records.
rescheduling: at least 14 days notice to avoid fee
You may reschedule your photoshoot appointment 1 time with at least 14 days notice before your session date and start time without penalty as long as your new appointment falls no more than 31 days after your original appointment.
If you ask to reschedule your appointment with less than 14 days notice before your session date and time, you may need to pay rescheduling fee up to the amount of the session fee to book a new date. This rescheduling fee is not a penalty but as payment toward unanticipated losses I may incur ("liquidated damages").
Should I need to reschedule your appointment for any reason and within any timeframe, I will apply your session fee to your new date without penalty. Should I need to cancel your appointment, I will refund your session fee in the manner it was paid, and you will receive your refund according to the policies and practices of that payment manner (ie, my credit card processor or bank).
Session Fee is Non-Refundable
The session fee is non-refundable once you've paid it to book your session. If you cancel your appointment for any reason, fail to reschedule a confirmed appointment that falls no more than 31 days of the original date per the rescheduling policy above, or fail to show for your appointment, you will forfeit your entire session fee not as a penalty but as payment toward unanticipated losses I may incur ("liquidated damages").
HAIR AND MAKEUP ARTISTRY ARE INCLUDED AND REQUIRED
In-studio makeup and hair styling services are mandatory for Signature Boudoir Sessions and in-studio makeup service is required for Mini Sessions. The cost of these services is included in the session fee. If you decide not to use my licensed hair and makeup professionals, your creative fee remains the same. Tipping your stylist is not required but certainly is appreciated ($15-$30 is a good range).
PLEASE CONTACT ME ASAP IF YOU'RE RUNNING LATE
If you are 20 minutes late to your photoshoot appointment, your session will be shortened by excluding 1 of the included outfits. If you are more than 30 minutes late, your appointment is considered cancelled and the cancellation policy applies.
YOU WILL APPROVE YOUR STYLING BEFORE PHOTOGRAPHY BEGINS
You are ultimately responsible for choices in wardrobe, makeup and hairstyle. Please be sure to tell me if you'd like anything changed with your hair and makeup before your stylist leaves the studio and with outfits we start shooting. No refunds or reshoots are available if you dislike your styling or outfits in your final photographs.
I DON'T PHOTOGRAPH COSTUMES OR PROPS
With rare exception, I do not photograph costumes or props in your session. This includes fishnet dresses, feather boas, Halloween-styled costumes, baseball bats, snowboards or other items.
NO WEAPONS ALLOWED IN the studio, even as a prop
I do not allow weapons of any kind, including but not limited to firearms and knives, on my business premises. If you have a concealed-carry permit, I kindly request that you leave your weapon locked in your vehicle.
AVOID SPRAY OR SELF TANNING WITHIN 7 DAYS OF YOUR SESSION
I prefer that you do not tan at all for your session. Should any tanning agent cause damage to studio props, linens, furniture or other items you will be liable for the cost of repairing or replacing those items. Heads up: You will likely look oompa-loompa orange at worst and muddy-skinned at best, and the retouching fee to bring your skin color back to normal requires an additional per-image editing fee.
I SHOW YOU ONLY MY FAVORITE PHOTOS
Deciding which photos to show you is part of my artistic process. The number of images and specific images presented is at my discretion.
RETOUCHING: YOU WILL LOOK LIKE A HUMAN BEING ... & beware tan lines
I hire professional retouchers for all of my editing. We do not take 10+ pounds off of you or 10+ years off of you or completely remove skin folds. Tattoo removal and retouching of tan lines will require a per-image fee. Retouching beyond what I deliver in your final gallery may require a per-image retouching fee. I do not release unedited or raw images.
YOU WILL PURCHASE PRODUCTS AT YOUR ORDERING APPOINTMENT
You will place an order for your boudoir products at an in-person or virtual ordering appointment within 21 days after your session. If you choose not to attend an ordering appointment within that timeframe, your photos will be deleted unless other arrangements have been made.
Rescheduling, Cancellation and Late Policy for Ordering Appointments. Please be respectful of my time.
- If you need to reschedule your ordering appointment, or if you're running late, please let me know with as much advance notice as possible.
- If you no call/no show for your ordering appointment your photos will be deleted within 48 hours.
- If you cancel your ordering appointment and do not reschedule your appointment for a date within the 21 day window after your session, your photos will be deleted unless other arrangements have been made.
The total cost of your product order is due in full at your ordering appointment unless you enter an installment agreement under separate contract.
Products and prices may change at any time and without notice. I collect Colorado combined sales tax on all product orders.
ALL SALES ARE FINAL
No refunds or order changes are available once you've placed your order. No refunds are available if you decide to remove images from your album during the approval process. No parts of your order may be cancelled once placed.
Virtual Ordering Appointments: tech requirements
If you live at least 50 miles away from my studio, we may opt to do a virtual ordering appointment using video conferencing technology. To be eligible for a virtual ordering appointment, you'll need the following technology:
- A computer (no phones or tablets)
- With a microphone and
- With Internet service that allows you to stream Netflix
If you don't have this level of technology available to you, you'll either need to come back to my studio for an ordering appointment or purchase a full digital collection (available via digital download) to use to choose photos for printed products.
YOU MAY GIVE ME PERMISSION TO SHOW YOUR PHOTOS ... OR NOT
You get to choose how I may or may not share your boudoir photos on a separate agreement called a Permission Slip. There is no advantage for giving me permission nor penalty for not giving me permission to share your portraits. Your permission is fully revocable in writing. I am not responsible for removing images from use beyond the places I have posted them--for example, if I post a photo on my blog and a visitor pins it to Pinterest, I am responsible only for removing the image from my blog. I'm not responsible for the actions of third parties. I am not responsible for any harm that results from your images being shown publicly.
YOU MAY NOT REPRODUCE, EDIT, SCREENSHOT OR PUBLISH IMAGES
All photographs produced during your photography session are protected by US Copyright Law. Any reproduction of my work, including taking screenshots during your ordering appointment or taking photos of finished items without my permission, and any unauthorized alteration of your portraits (cropping, changing colors, adding filters, editing in any software) is a violation of Copyright Law and will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
Unless we make other arrangements, you will return to my studio to pick up all of your products at once.
RUSH DELIVERY is available with a rush fee and administrative fee. Please let me know at your ordering appointment if you need your product sooner than the given timeframe.
DIRECT SHIPPING is available SIGNATURE REQUIRED at no cost if you live outside the Denver-Boulder metro area (for example, Colorado Springs or Fort Collins), or at cost if you live outside the contiguous United States.
LOCAL DELIVERY is available SIGNATURE REQUIRED for Denver-Boulder metro area clients for an additional shipping or delivery charge. Albums and wall art will require separate shipping and handling charges, starting at $25 per item.
YOU MUST NOTIFY ME within 3 hours of receipt if you find any issues with your items.
DIGITAL IMAGES: USAGE AND STORAGE
If you purchase digital images, you will receive a print release that allows you to print your images up to 8 inches x 12 inches. Your images are for your private use--no commercial use is granted. Be sure to copy your images from your flash drive to your computer, then back them up to the cloud or another secure place.
I do not guarantee to save and store your images beyond the time your order is delivered to you. I may delete them from my system at any time and without notice.
LIMIT OF LIABILITY
In the unlikely event that your photographs are lost, stolen destroyed for reasons beyond my control before your product order is placed, I will photograph you again if possible. If a re-shoot is not possible, my liability is limited to the return of all payments you’ve made to me minus any costs I've incurred. My liability shall not exceed payments you've made.
This agreement between Lynn Clark Studios, LLC, and the client, named below is governed by the laws of the State of Colorado. Any disputes will be handled through arbitration.
I have read and accept the terms and conditions stated above. I am legally allowed to enter into binding contracts. I authorize this contract to be valid approval for photography sessions without additional signed contracts or written authorization.
