COVID 19 Questions
Q. What happens if my family gets Covid 19 before the session? A. You must wait or reschedule two weeks our after you’re not sick anymore before we can do the session. We will hold your deposit for next time. No refunds.
Q. What happens if the state or beaches get shut down because of Covid 19 and I’ve paid my $75.00 deposit? A. We will reschedule your session. No refunds because of the loss of business. We will extend the $75.00 deposit holding policy time frame by 6 months. You’ll now have 1.5 years to use your $75.00 deposit as a credit.
Q. What precautions are you taking while on a session? A. I take my own temperature each day. I try to stand at least 6 feet away at all times from myself to you and your family. For families who would like a (NO CONTACT) session. I can email you the required paperwork you must sign before the session for a full no contact session. Don’t worry, I’m a lot more than six feet from you while we shoot.
Q. What happens if the photographer gets sick from COVID 19? A. Won’t happen! J/k We will do our best to book with a backup photographer for the same price and location. Or we can just schedule for next year with a $75.00 credit and $50.00 off coupon for the next session. So that would be $125.00 off. You also would not need to pay the $75.00 to hold your next date or time. You would have one year and six months to book your next session before you lose any money.
