Rescheduling for Medical Reasons

Styling & Pre Session Phone Consult
Please phone our Studio at least 7 days prior to your Session, to ensure all your stylisation requirements and last minute details are arranged. Styling consultations ensure that our clients have the opportunity to communicate on clothing options, makeup, hair styling and other essential information to prepare. This consult assists us in creating a detailed 'photography run sheet'. This ensures that the Session timing is correct and that we are able to prepare a high calibre photography shoot. If this consult is not provided 7 days prior, the Session will be postponed, until such time that the required preparation is completed.
Who owns the copyright of the images?
Alise Black Photographic Studios owns and retains all ownership and copyright over the images photographed. You are given the option to sign a separate model release if you are happy to have your images viewed publicly. The privacy and confidentiality of our clients is of the upmost importance. When purchasing digital copies of the images, you are given a release to use them for your own personal promotion and reproduction worldwide. For example, print media, social media platforms, copies for family and on your business website. See our products & packages guide for more details.
What if I'm running late to my Session?
Please call us immediately. We ask that you please ensure you arrive promptly at your scheduled arrival time. This is so you can complete your consultation form, prepare your outfits, begin to relax and make the most of the experience. We will always endeavour to accommodate all guests where possible, however we will not compromise a Session or extend other client’s waiting times. If you arrive more than 15 minutes after your arrival time this would compromise our next booked session at least 40 minutes. In this instance, unfortunately you will miss out on your Session and any monies paid will be forfeited as a cancellation fee. We trust you understand this, as it is in the best interests of all our guests.
Other questions and last minute details
If you have any other questions about our Studio or your Session, we will be more than happy to discuss them with you. We look forward to seeing you soon!
