Kamia Portraits requires that each client pays 50% retainer fee ( half of the session the client is requesting ). To secure the date and time requested by the client. The remaining balance is due at least two days before the session date. However, if the client would like to pay in full they have that option. If a payment isn't received then the client's session will be canceled. If the client has paid a retainer fee but hasn't paid the remaining balance, their pictures will be held. Once the clients pictures have been held, they have until a week after the two weeks are up to pay the remaining balance, if a payment has still not been made all images will be removed and the session will be canceled.
If for any reason your session is canceled by the client or by Kamia Portraits, no refund is issued out. You may set up your session for another date and time, however Kamia Portraits will NOT issue a refund for any reason unless Kamia Portraits is unable to provide you with the services. You have by the end of the year to reschedule a session with Kamia Portraits , after the year has past and you've failed to reschedule then you'd have to repay all fees over the next time you plan on booking a session.
