Please check the weather forecast 24 hours prior to your appointment to let your photographer know if you are cancelling your appointment due to weather.

Don't be early:
Arrive to studio appointments no sooner than 5 minutes prior to your start time; the photographer uses the time between appointments to prepare the studio for the next session, make scheduled phone calls, or take scheduled breaks. There is only one FREE client parking spot on the property and downtown parking is limited, so please enter and exit your Vertigo parking space in a timely manner in case there is a client scheduled before or after your time slot.

Time slots cannot be reduced or upgraded at the last second. The booking fee pays for the time slot you purchased and nothing beyond that. This busy time of year there is no allowance for extra time.
A guest is a person who is not having their photo taken. To reduce the photographers exposure to viruses and to limit distractions to the photographer and models, which WILL effect the overall outcome of the session, guests are not permitted in the studio unless express permission is granted BEFORE booking.

The photographer will have a lot more creative freedom shooting models without glasses. Let your photographer know prior to shooting if you want to wear glasses with lenses during your session. Lighting will be set up differently if anyone is wearing glasses so this must be discussed upon booking.
