If you are like me, before committing to a purchase or service, you want answers to some important questions about HOW things are done, HOW much it will all cost and WHAT you will get. To make it easier for you, I’ve tried to cover everything I think you might want to know in these points below. I take my photography business very seriously, and want you to have a good experience with no surprises! Absolutely don’t hesitate to ask me to clarify any of these points or ask questions that I haven’t covered here.
On special occasions only, Pop Up or Mini Sessions are held during the daylight hours at a location of the photographer’s choice. There is no retainer fee for these sessions. A model release and liability waiver are signed for all sessions. These special sessions do not exceed fifteen minutes and prices vary depending on the nature of the session. If the client wishes to make other purchases from files made that day, that option is available from the a la carte menu. The session fee is to be paid by email transfer or cash at the time of the session.
Sessions: Sessions are $75 for the first hour and is due upon booking via email transfer or cash. The Session Fee does not include any photography products. Purchases may be made separately from the Collections and a la carte menu.
The Session Fee is non-refundable unless you or I or a family member experiences a medical emergency, or if the weather makes travel unsafe.
Travel fees: Areas outside of the 20km radius of Truro, N.S. are subject to a travel fee of .40/km return trip.
Print and Product Purchases: Products are paid for at the time of ordering. Refunds will always be given when due to a printing error.
Prints are available on quality photo paper, fine art paper and canvas. Other photo products, including albums and cards are also available.
240 dpi Photo Files: If you feed that you need a higher resolution file than a social media file, these a may be purchased for personal use for $75 per file. Depending on the file ratio, they will measure approximately 1500x2500px. Under Canadian law, photographs and files always remain the property of the photographer unless the client purchases the rights to the file/photograph for an agreed upon sum. In this case, a special license would be granted to the client.
Small Digital Files: You can purchase a signed, social media sized file that is great for web viewing and sharing for $30. These files lack the resolution needed for quality printing. These 72 dpi files are signed and measure approximately 900px on the longest side.
Each print purchased receives its accompanying file, as described above, at no extra cost. These files are not suitable for printing but display well on social media.
Price lists and contracts: When you contact me to book a session date, I will send you a link to a price list, the Waiver of Release of Liability/Model Release and the any contract we may need for your event for for you to read. Similar contracts are used by most professional photographers. I will bring along a paper copy to our session for you to sign and will will scan and send you a copy file after the session, if you wish to have a copy.
Print Collections begin at $200. Please contact me for a link to the Collections and A la Carte Price List. You do not have to choose a collection or product before the Session.
Covid-19: Social distancing will be practiced by the photographer at all times. Mask wearing is mandatory when shooting inside. Neither the client nor the photographer will hold the other responsible for developing Covid-19.
When possible, printing is done locally in Nova Scotia. Some specialty items are sent to labs in other areas of North America.
All photographs remain the copyright of the photographer under Canadian law. (Copyright can be purchased by groups and businesses.)
Myra Hencher Photography is a registered business in Nova Scotia, Canada.
Despite all the fine print, having a photography session is a lot of fun! If there are any serious photos to do, we will get them done first and then loosen up. (And maybe get a bit dirty if pets are involved!)
