Terms & Conditions

Payment

The session fee is due on the day of your photo shoot and is non-refundable. After confirming your order (digital +/- prints) you will receive a final invoice for goods. If paying cash the balance will be collected when your order is delivered. If paying by BACS transfer no photographs will be delivered until payment is received.

Cancellation & Postponement

Due to the unpredictability of the Scottish weather it may occasionally be necessary to postpone your outdoor photo shoot. Shona Cooley Photography will always endeavour to reschedule at a mutually convenient date and time.

Late arrivals will be charged the full price but cannot unfortunately be guaranteed their full shoot time.
