photo TERMS + CONDITIONS
Current Hourly Rate: $75/hr
EMAIL AND OFFICE HOURS
I am accessible via email Monday-Saturday from 9AM to 9PM Central Standard Time (these hours are different from the times I take photoshoot appointments). If you are experiencing an emergency, or website meltdown, please text HELP to 314-856-5563.
All emails will be answered within 24-48 business hours of receipt except during vacations (you will be notified), holidays, and family emergencies. Email will not be answered on Sundays except when deemed urgent.
PAYMENTS and fees
Balances are due the day of your session. Payments are accepted in the forms of cash, credit and debit via Square, Stripe and Paypal services.
Travel fees will be added for sessions booked with multiple locations and/or outside of the St. Louis area.
deposits and cancellations
For photo sessions requiring a deposit, the deposit goes towards your final payment and is non-refundable, but may be transferred to a new shoot date if you re-book no later than 48 hours (two days) before your original scheduled shoot date. You may only transfer the deposit once; if you cancel your booking a second time, the deposit will be forfeited.
Cancellations are preferred to be made at least 24 hours in advance. I know, life happens! Without at least a 2-hour notice of cancellation, you will be subject to forfeiting your deposit and/or a cancellation fee.
retouching + Edits
I will be happy to remove any impermanent blemished that you are concerned about. However, in effort to capture truth and authenticity, I will never dramatically alter anything about how you physically look. Not even upon request.
Clients are not provided with unedited photos. Unedited photos in proof galleries are not to be screenshot or published/posted in any manner.
Ashlee Nicole Artistry, LLC owns FULL COPYRIGHT to all photographs taken. Each photography package includes a release. I encourage you to promote yourself and your brand. If the images I created are ever to be published (magazine, newspaper article, or any online platform including social media sites), you must credit Ashlee Nicole Artistry, LLC. This copyright/attribution requirement is non-negotiable.
Customer desired restrictions to ANA publishing should be discussed and submitted in writing.
Grant of Rights
Ashlee Nicole Artistry, LLC may use Work in portfolio (including, but not limited to, any website or application that displays Ashlee Nicole Artistry, LLC works). Client and Ashlee Nicole Artistry, LLC agree that when asked, Client must properly identify Ashlee Nicole Artistry, LLC as the creator of Work. Client does not have a proactive duty to display Ashlee Nicole Artistry, LLC name together with Work, but Client may not seek to mislead others that Work was created by anyone other than Ashlee Nicole Artistry, LLC. Draft files of artwork are property of Ashlee Nicole Artistry, LLC, and shall not be used in any matter or posted onto Social Media - Doing so is a breach of contract, and causes Ashlee Nicole Artistry, LLC to forfeit project. In this case, no refunds will be issued.

All communication is between Ashlee Nicole Artistry, LLC's owner, contractors, and the client only and may not be shared, transmitted, or copied by outside parties. Transmitting, copying, or sharing information to other parties may result in legal action. Client will be responsible for all legal fees, arbitration fees, and invoices should this occur.
