The Necessary Stuff – Policies
Lillybelle Rose policies, as noted on the blogsite, are as follows:
A NON-REFUNDABLE retainer** of $175.00 is due at booking for all Newborn Sessions and full payment due at booking for Mini sessions to serve as your non-refundable retainer. Your retainer fee (as noted on the blogsite/session information page) will be processed via your credit card on file at www.lillybellerose.genbook.com upon booking, with any remaining session balance to be processed the day of your session. A NON-REFUNDABLE retainer of $175.00 is due at booking for all sessions, with full payment due at booking for Mini sessions to serve as your non-refundable retainer. If you must reschedule due to an emergency or illness (or inclement weather as determined by Francine Mittenthal), you MUST complete your session within 30 days of the originally booked date, (*10 days for newborn sessions) to avoid loss of retainer fee.
**To reserve a Session Date, Client shall pay to Photographer, upon booking, a non-refundable reservation fee in the amount of $175.00 for all newborn sessions and FULL payment for all Mini sessions. Client understands and agrees that Photographer will not book other sessions during this time. In the event that Client cancels the portrait session or fails to attend the session on the Session Date, for any reason, Photographer shall suffer losses that are difficult to ascertain. As such, Client agrees that, in the event of cancellation by Client, such retainers shall be forfeited by Client and paid to Photographer as liquidated damages and not as a penalty. Client and Photographer agree that such amount is reasonable. If you must reschedule due to an emergency or illness, you MUST complete your session within 30 days of the originally booked date, (*10 days for newborn sessions) to avoid loss of retainer fee.

My goal is to provide you with quality images. These images are chosen by Francine based on technical merit, composition and variety. Unedited images will not be shown or sold.
Printed images are only guaranteed for quality if printed through Lillybelle Rose Photography. Due to the nature of the service and it’s products, all sales are final.
Your private online gallery will be ready for viewing within two weeks of your session. You will receive an email with your gallery password once it is ready, and are welcome to share this with family and friends. If any circumstances arise that prevents me from posting your gallery within two weeks, I will contact you as soon as possible.
Professional print orders will be placed once payment has cleared. Orders may take up to two weeks to process and can be shipped to the studio or your home. There is a $50 minimum order and all sales are final.
Please call to reschedule if your child is ill, but not for small blemishes or boo-boos.
