G. Your session
Newborn sessions are conducted at the photographer's home studio located at M22 8DY.
Client should be prompt for the session. The photographer has scheduled around he "sleepiest" times. Newborn sessions begin at about 9:30am. For newborn sessions the photographer allows a 30 minute cushion ( between 9:30-10:00 am ) as getting out of the house with new baby can be difficult. Arriving late to the appointment will result in lost session time. If the client is running late, he/she must notify the photographer. The session may need to be rescheduled if the client arrives over 20 minutes after the scheduled start time. If the client fails to show for the scheduled appointment or the session has to be rescheduled due to tardiness, an additional £50 deposit will be required to reschedule.
The client should take the time to review samples of the photographer's work to make sure that her style of photography and editing is a good fit ( these can be seen at www.justynawiniarz-photography.co.uk or www.facebook/Justyna-Winiarz-Photography-348609395349219/ ). When a client books with Justyna Winiarz PHOTOGRAPHY he/she gives the photographer full reign over session styling and artistic editing of photos. The photographer will be choosing the props that will be used and the best of the mages to edit and present so if the client has specific likes or dislikes these should be discussed well in advance of the session. It is the photographer's goal to provide all clients with pictures that they will love. Her newborn editing workflow includes brightening , removing any baby acne and promonet skin flakes, reducing redness and yellowing caused by jaundice, softening skin to even out blotchiness and give a smooth texture and sharpening to bring out features. If either parent is opposed to any of this, her style of photography may not be a good fit. Better to discuss this now then after the session as there are no refunds.
H. After the session
At the time of the session a viewing/purchasing session will be scheduled ( within four weeks ) . At this time ( and only this time ) the image gallery will be presented and products may be purchased. All parties that will need to be involved in purchasing decisions must be present ( no online galleries will be made available and additional viewing appointments will incure a £25 non-refundable fee ).
Only images that are watermarked and specially formatted for web viewing by Justyna Winiarz PHOTOGRAPHY can be posted or shared online. Images may not be altered in ANY way by the client ( no cropping, black/white conversion, filters, etc. ). Clients may NOT post the high resolution print files online. Clients are advised to turn off the Facebook's "photo enhancement" feature before posting images as it will greatly distort the image quality.
