Thank you so much for choosing me to capture these special memories for you. Please take a moment to read over the following as you will have many questions answered and understand how our session moves forth from here.
All images are copyrighted by photographer, Kendra Seiter. It is illegal and unlawful to scan, copy, reproduce or screenshots Kendra Seiter’s work in any manner or medium unless you have purchased digital images from Kendra Seiter Photography and have express written permission to do so.

Thank you for respecting Kendra’s work by choosing not to reproduce her images without such permission.
A non refundable session retainer fee serves to save the date for your session. An exact date for your session cannot be saved until this payment is received, and is due upon booking the appointment. This fee covers time, talent and digital downloads only and serves to secure your session date and current print prices. Your gallery expires 10 days after the proofing gallery is posted and all images or products must be ordered in this 10 day period or a $30 fee will be assessed to repost the gallery. Prints and products are sold separately. If a session must be rescheduled, the session fee can be applied to a future session scheduled within 6 months.
Reschedules due to illness are certainly understandable. I would never want to photograph someone who was not feeling 100%. If someone becomes ill, please call as soon as possible to reschedule. I maintain the right to reschedule if needed due to inclement weather, illness, emergency, etc. Requests for rescheduling or re-shoots are granted only at my discretion.
Before Your Session
Please have everyone dressed and ready to go for the session, as I normally schedule to make the most of the best natural light. I will take a bit of time to get to know small children before actually picking up the camera, so being prepared and on time is important. Another thing to remember is to not make a huge deal out of “You’re getting your picture taken today!” We want the session to be fun and capture natural emotions and expressions.
Please do not bring your own camera, camcorder or other recording device to the session. More than one camera can prove to be distracting to the process. (Births being the obvious exception to this rule)
All orders must be paid in full before any prints or products will be ordered.
If you purchase items that require design work ( cards, albums books, canvases) I will consult you first to get your input on the images, colors, text, etc for the design. try to be as specific as possible. I will then create a design doing my best to incorporate your requests. You can make up to three small changes to that design ( change a color, text, change an image). Additional changes will be billed at $55 per hour. Again, I will inform you of any charges before the work is begun. Once the changes are made, charges apply regardless of whether or not the final product is purchased. Any design work that is not approved within a three month time period but which has been paid in full, will be ordered as shown. There is a great deal of time and planning that goes into layouts, so adding, deleting or moving around specific images can be quite complicated and time consuming and may affect several aspects of the overall design.
Your final print order will be delivered approximately 3 – 6 weeks after the ordering session is complete. Certain custom items understandably take a longer time to receive.
All ordered images will be kept on file for six months after your initial order. All non ordered images will be deleted from my storage system as image files require tremendous amounts of space to maintain. I do not guarantee that images will be kept, as digital storage is often a fickle medium, but every effort will be made via multiple methods of backups to retain ordered images.
Reprints require a $75 minimum purchase
