PRIVACY POLICY

Privacy is a concern to many of my clients.  I have photographed many women who want to protect their identity.  Thus, we’ve built in several safeguards to ensure that your privacy will be protected at all times, and you will have complete control over which images (if any) are released and where they appear.

First of all, other than e-mail correspondence, your full name will never be associated with your photos.  All images are processed by me and my assistant. Your images are also archived in house and can be permanatly deleted if you request. To create your products, we work with a professional book binder and print lab who also understands your privacy concerns.

All of the images that you see on this website are used with permission.  After your session, you will have the opportunity to grant us permission to use any images, specific images or no images at all. You may also let us know how and where they may be used.  For example, you may opt to allow your images to be used as studio samples and in promotional materials (i.e. brochure), but not on our website or blog. We will NEVER use an image from your session without your consent.

You always have the right to keep all images private, however because we exercise new skills and stretch ourselves creatively with every session, we LOVE to share our work with new clients!!  We give a huge heartfelt thank you to everyone who does allow use permission to share images. It is extremely helpful to new clients to see our current work and women of all ages, shapes, and sizes. So, thank you!

As always, don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or if there is a specific concern that you would like to address.
