General Policies

DSC_6417All images are copyrighted by Amy Tripple Photography.  If you choose to purchase the full-resolution digital files of your images, you’ll be given a print release form that allows you to have the images printed at any location and in any medium. You may also post any purchased images on social networking sites (Facebook, Instagram, etc…) and/or personal websites and blogs.  Because we retain the copyright to every image, you may not use them for advertising or other revenue-producing purposes without express permission.

Your images will be presented to you in an online, password-protected gallery within three weeks of your session date.

You will be presented with 25 – 30 images from your session. Though many more images will be captured, our quality standards and your completed session questionnaire will determine which pictures will be selected and edited. Each image is custom-edited in both color and black-and-white. Due to our workflow structure, additional images will not be shown after the gallery has been posted.

Photo sessions are limited to immediate family members only. Due to increased editing time, additional family units can be added for $100 per family.

We will travel up to 10 miles from our studio in Hinsdale, IL for on-location sessions.  If you’d like to schedule a session at a location farther from this, please contact us for a travel quote.

All photo sessions are up to 60 minutes in length. We work quickly (especially with little ones!) to capture your images. Through experience, we’ve learned that children respond more positively to a session that “keeps things moving”. One of the keys to success is staying aware of each family member’s comfort level. If all necessary images have been captured before the full hour is completed, we will either continue photographing for additional options or end the session, depending on the childrens’ moods. Please be aware that the price of your session reflects the final product of a beautiful gallery of images, not necessarily a full hour of time together at the session.

DSC_6232Please limit your family session to a single outfit per person (no wardrobe changes).

Your online gallery will be active for 1 week from it’s post date. All orders should be placed within this 7 day period. After your gallery expires, we will charge a $100 fee to reopen it. We will not make exceptions to this policy.

Print availability is limited to corresponding purchased digital images only. For example, if purchasing the “Sampler” package with 10 digital images, prints may only be ordered of the ten purchased images.

Print orders will be delivered to your home within two weeks of the order date. Due to the custom nature of photographic prints and products, all sales are final. If, however, there is any issue with a print or product you’ve ordered through us, please let us know so we can make it right!

All print orders are subject to applicable sales tax.

Any prints or products not processed through our professional lab will not be guaranteed by us due to common color and finish discrepancies.

We accept cash, personal checks, and all major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, & American Express).

In the interest of fairness to all clients, we are unable to offer special deals or discounts.  For this reason, please understand that session fees, print prices, and business policies are non-negotiable.  Thank you for respecting our work and livelihood by not requesting fee or session exceptions.
