Initial Consultation and Deposit
Kids' Photography takes up space. Little Gems needs a large room in which to work. Would you prefer your pictures done in a local park or a location that's special to you? Little Gems will visit you if you need help in deciding or you can email images and dimensions of rooms before hand. Once you have decided on a date, a returnable deposit of £25 in the form of a cheque is required to secure your slot. We understand children can become unwell at short notice, so please inform us if this is the case as soon as possible and we will refund you or reschedule.


Weddings
Wedding season is very busy. Therefore an up-front deposit is needed to hold your booking subject to quotation.

Prepare
Please, please, please....make sure your baby has had a good night's sleep before the shoot. Attention span can be short so we need to maximise our time to get it right. Inform us of their sleep/feed patterns so we can plan the session. Prepare and iron a range of your favourite clothes. Big brand logos date the pictures so please avoid them. Also avoid yellows and greens as they can affect skin tones. Space in which to move around is essential to get the most from the shoot, so we recommend you clear the room beforehand.

Talk to us
Little Gems is confident you will like your pictures. You are not under any obligation to buy prints or any other products if you don't like them. Communication is key : You are at liberty to stop the shoot at any time if you feel we are not achieving the results you want.

Mileage and Parking
Our equipment is very heavy so we need to run a car. If you live in a controlled parking zone then we will charge for parking at cost. Mileage is chargeable at 40p per mile. Both charges are payable immediately at the time of the shoot.

Your Own Viewing Gallery for 2 weeks.
You can order prints and products from your own secure gallery for a period of 2 weeks after your shoot. If you require the gallery for longer, an administration fee of £50 is payable.

Print Turnaround and Delivery
We use suppliers sourced for their quality and standards of service but occasionally there can be operational delays beyond our control. Please bear this in mind when ordering. Give us plenty of time to implement you requests.
Normally we endeavour to get orders out as quickly as possible and most of the time you will find prints will arrive before you expect. Specialist items such as frames have longer turnaround times because of their bespoke nature. We will endeavour to keep you informed.
We use Royal Mail for fulfulling our orders unless otherwise requested and are subject to their terms, conditions and standards of operation. We cannot be held responsible for delays resulting directly from their performance, industrial action or from acts of God.
