Images may be used for advertising or portfolio purposes. However, if for any reason, be it personal or legal, you may not wish images of you or your children used for marketing purposes by Little Grasshopper Photography, the model release may be amended.
As per Australian Copyright Law, the photographer (artist) inherently retains copyright ownership to all images. By purchasing the images, you receive rights for personal use and display of your images with certain limitations. When purchasing a digital file you will be given rights to make copies (for personal use only).
I present to you only the images from your session that fit my professional and artistic standards. These will be presented to you in their fully edited format, and originals/rejected images will not be available.
Standard editing and portrait retouching are included (lighting and colour correction, skin smoothing, spot removal, and standard sharpening). Further retouching will require an additional $35 fee per image to be paid before editing can be completed.
Family sessions can last up to ninety minutes, but in most cases, they last for one hour. I have a range of poses and set ups that I gradually move through in this time. If there is an example of my work that you are particularly fond of, or if you have special ideas for your own family session, please let me know in our pre-session consultation.
I invite you to bring as many outfits or props as you would like, however, I cannot guarantee that we will have time to wear them or use them all and if multiple changes occur, I cannot guarantee you will receive as many images due to time constraints.
Lastly, as I do not charge a session fee, I do not allow last minute rescheduling unless in very special circumstances or in a case of bad weather. I do not continue to work with clients who are no shows. This applies for all appointment types.
TRAVEL & USAGE FEES
A travel fee will apply for desired locations outside of the Canberra region. If the desired location requires a usage fee or permit, this will be the responsibility of the client.
Any specials or discount options available in your first sales appointment are limited to that sale. Fees for prints, products, and digital files must be paid in full before orders are fulfilled. Product prices are valid for sixty (60) days from the session date in the event of a price increase. Images will only be presented to you at your reveal & ordering appointment(s). After 30 days, if orders are not placed, images will be archived and a $50 archival fee will be due to reinstate order. After one year from session date, images are not guaranteed to be available for purchase. All orders are final, and may not be adjusted.
Product orders may be purchased on a monthly payment plan if necessary, with a minimum payment of $250 per month. Product orders will be prepared and only fulfilled once the total balance is paid in full.

RAW or original files will not be available for viewing or purchase. Only image files that have been purchased with a print release may be printed. Social media or ‘web’ digital image files are for online sharing purposes only, and may not be printed, have the watermark removed, or be edited or drastically cropped in any way.
