Booking policy

Upon booking your photo shoot with me you'll receive an email which will include a link to important information about your photo shoot and a portrait photography contract and print release agreement for you to sign (digitally). This is to confirm you understand and agree to the contract between me, your photographer and yourself, the client and also that you understand the print release agreement. Once this has been returned we can arrange your photo shoot date - a £50 non-refundable deposit is required to secure this.


Once the formalities are out of the way, the exciting and fun part can begin! Upon receipt of your deposit you will receive a digital welcome pack with FAQs, tips and advice to help you and your pet prepare for your photo shoot. You will also receive a print release form and we will also arrange a suitable time to have a chat ahead of your chosen date. This gives us chance to talk about locations, outfits and any special requests you may have. It helps me tailor the photo shoot especially for you and your pet.

Not many people understand copyright laws and how print releases work, therefore I feel it's important to mention it here and give some explanation. My contract and print release agreement sets out the terms and conditions around the use of the photographs taken during your photo shoot. SerenDipity Photography retains the copyright of all images, and those images are released to you, the client for personal use only as outlined below.

  • Personal reproduction and printing

  • Personal Christmas cards

  • If you are posting any of the digital files to social media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram* etc.) you may not alter the image in any way. Images must not be modified in anyway. This includes the use of filters. such as adding filters, re-editing the photos, etc. You must also give credit to the photographer.

  • All images taken during photo shoots remain the property of SerenDipity Photography. 

  • Screen shots of any non-purchased photographs is theft and is strictly prohibited. Anyone found to be doing this will be banned from using any SerenDipity pages for life and legal action will be taken.
