If a decision isn't made at the initial ordering appointment additional ordering sessions are available for $75.00.

Sessions not ordered within three months will be deleted permanently and your retainer will be lost.

You have the option to archive your unordered images for an additional 9 months (giving you one year from the session date) for a $75 archival fee.  This fee does NOT apply to any future orders, it is strictly a storage fee. If you request to archive your images, your request must be submitted via email before the original 3 months are up.
If any amount of your retainer remains after your session fee and applicable online gallery fees have been deducted, the balance will be applied to your order. Any further investment will require at least a 50% deposit upon ordering, with balance due at portrait delivery.  A payment plan is available for orders over $1,000.00. Please inquire for details.
