Why do packages have different numbers of photos?

It's due to the way photos are captured and edited. Studio photos, taken with artificial lighting, and lifestyle natural light photos go through distinct post-production steps. The editing process for studio photographs tends to be more comprehensive and time-consuming. Each photo becomes a work of art, carefully polished to perfection. Lifestyle photos, on the other hand, do not require the detailed editing.

 

Rewards and ways to save.

  • When you book two full sessions (for example, Maternity and Newborn sessions) at the same time, you get a $50 discount.

  • 10% off a full (1 hour +) session for returning customers,  not eligible for minis or bundles.

Privacy of your photos.​

As a client of Picstoria Photography, you can decide on the privacy of your photos when booking. Additionally, during our session, you will be asked whether you agree or disagree with the use of your photos on social media (Facebook or Instagram posts and stories), the website, and/or advertising.

As an owner of Picstoria Photography, I value your privacy and respect you decision. I would be honoured if you wouldn't mind me sharing your photos with my followers on social media or here on the website!

If you are not comfortable sharing your photos publicly, you don't have to pay extra for the privacy of your photos. However, you will still be asked to sign the standard photography contract when booking.

 

Copyright and Client's use of photos.

 

The contract states photographer's copyright and ownership of the produced images (per the Copyright Act of Canada). 

The client’s rights are limited to personal use only. Photographs may not be sold or used in advertising. This means you can share photos with your family and friends (privately and on social media),  and make prints for personal use (for example, holiday cards, photo albums, prints on the wall).

Timing and payment.

  • Photo proofs are sent during the week following the photo session. Final retouched high-resolution images are guaranteed to be delivered via a private online gallery without watermarks within three weeks after the client makes their selection through the gallery of photo proofs. During less busy seasons, the timing is typically shorter (1-2 weeks), and this will be specified during the session.

  • A non-refundable deposit is required at booking and will be applied to the cost.

  • No part of any order, including previews and photo proofs, will be delivered until the balance is paid in full. The balance is due on the day of the session.
