Terms and Conditions


In these terms and conditions, "I" means Elise Northfield, the photographer, trading as Photo-times Photography, and "you" means you, the client.

Portrait Sessions

The session retainer covers my time, talent & goes towards your purchase at your viewing session only.

Promotions or vouchers may not be used in conjunction with any other promotion and are not transferable. Strictly one voucher per family in a 12-month period.

Payment is due at the time of booking.  Session retainer fees taken for any portrait session are non-refundable except in the event that I cancel the booking. You may cancel a session at any time but in doing so shall forfeit any monies paid.

If you or your children are sick, please give at least 24 hours’ notice to reschedule your session. If 24 hours’ notice is not given or you fail to show for your booked session any deposit paid will be rendered non-refundable. and a rebooking fee of £25 will be charged.  

Cameras, mobile phone cameras and camcorders are NOT permitted during any photography session.

Photo-times Photography Portrait clients must attend the first viewing session otherwise any deposit, retainer paid or voucher will be rendered invalid.

Strictly no refunds are permitted once copyright has been handed over in the form of images purchased on a USB or digitally transferred.

You are responsible for all children at all sessions. In the event of children being uncooperative, for any reason, at any portrait session, it may not be possible for me to capture all the images requested, or images to match your expectations. If this occurs to the extent that, in my opinion, no acceptable images are captured, then you may book another portrait session at no extra charge. 

The Photo-times Photography Studio accepts no liability for the loss or damage of any equipment or personal belongings brought onto the premises.

In booking your appointment or purchasing a promotion you agree to the terms and conditions as stated above.

Artistic Input

You understand and accept that the photographic coverage will be as my professional expertise determines. Special requests are not binding instructions, but I will make reasonable endeavours to comply with your wishes.

I shall be entitled to use my judgement regarding the style and artistic input in the production of images. This includes (but is not limited to) poses, props and number of images taken.

Limitation of Liability

Elise Northfield, (Photographer) shall not be liable to the Client for any failure, in whole or in part, to fulfil her obligations where failure arises as a result of an event or circumstances beyond her control, which may include (but are not limited to) equipment failure, inclement weather, illness or injury.

The Client understands and accepts that the photographic coverage will be as Elise Northfields’ professional expertise determines. Special requests are not binding instructions although every effort is made to comply with the Client’s wishes.

In the unlikely event of total photographic failure or cancellation of the contract by Photo-times Photography, liability shall be limited to a full refund of all monies paid.

Price of Products

Session retainer does not include any images. Please make sure you have viewed the price list before booking a session with me. Booking a session will be taken as confirmation that you have read the price list, and you agree to all the Terms and Conditions on this page.

Ordering Images

At end of your portrait session I will book the 'in-studio' view and order session, this will typically be within two weeks of your portrait session.

You are responsible for attending the view and order session, and it is important that those involved in the decision making process are also in attendance, so please ensure you know their availability when you attend your portrait session.

As a creative artist, I will select images for your viewing in accordance with the session you booked. There is no guarantee that any particular number of images will be produced. Images will be fully edited before presentation to you. Additional edits may be carried out at my discretion.

Full payment is due immediately for orders made at the view and order session. All orders are final and cannot be changed or refunded for any reason. 

If your session was part of a promotion, and includes any products, please be aware that in order to qualify for the promotional product you must attend your viewing session and choose your image.  Failure to attend your viewing means you forfeit your deposit, and any included complimentary image would have to be the first picture taken at the session. This would be posted out within six (6) weeks of your viewing session.  As the rules of the offer would have been broken, the deposit will be forfeited.  No refunds will be given.

Prints, frames and images purchased must be collected within one (1) month of the purchase date. All products thereafter not collected will be disposed of. This does not affect your statutory rights.

Cooling Off Period

Due to the custom nature of the products, orders cannot be cancelled. Orders are made to your personal specification (i.e. image number, print size, etc.), and you do not have the right to a cooling off period. By placing an order with me you are committing to buy the ordered products.

Copyright and Reproduction

Copyright is retained by Photo-times Photography at all times throughout the world.

No image can be copied, scanned or reproduced in any form whatsoever without the prior consent of Photo-times Photography.

The Client may not alter or add to or manipulate a picture by any means or reproduce a picture in whole or in part as an element within, or as a montage with, another picture without Photo-times Photographys’ written permission.

Permission to reproduce a picture for personal use (not commercial) is granted to the Client by Photo-times Photography only when digital negatives are purchased and paid in full by the Client to Photo-times Photography.

Receipt of Goods and Returns

I shall assume that any orders have been fulfilled with goods received in good condition unless you notify me in writing of any damage, discrepancy or error within 14 days of receipt.

If you have notified me within this time limit, you may return incorrectly supplied items and items of poor quality and these will be replaced at no extra charge to you. I shall not accept returns for incorrectly ordered items or items ordered in error. 

Photographer's Use of Images

I retain the right in all cases to use any images for the purposes of displays, advertising, portfolio, publication or promotion of my work.
