Im in Vegas at WPPI, but here is the policy sheet that we discussed last week in class. Enjoy the rest of your holiday...

Mother Lode Photography PO Box 385, Diamond Springs, Ca.
530 409 7733
Portrait orders:
1. Since your portraits are a custom product, an additional deposit of 50% of your total order is required when your order is placed.
Your custom portraits will be completed within 4 to 6 weeks. All orders must be paid in full before any photographs are delivered. We do not guarantee a delivery date.
All orders are to be paid in full and picked up within 30 days of notification. After 30 days they will be shipped COD w/$15.00 additional fee, if refused, they will be turned over for collection.
Visa and Mastercard are accepted for both deposits and final payments. Checks are accepted with a valid drivers license.
Due to the custom nature of our product, there are absolutely no refunds.
Although we handle all of our files most carefully, we do not accept any liability for lost or misplaced files after your initial order is placed. After initial order, we only keep files of poses previously ordered.
On “Hold for Deposit” orders, there is a $25.00 restocking fee if an order is canceled.
