Due to the uncertain prediction of an exact arrival day of your baby, certain flexibility for booking the newborn session will apply.

Once agreed upon a final session date, you may reschedule your session up to 7 days prior to your shoot if required. Teraia Photography does not guarantee certain newborn poses will be achieved if the baby is older than 14 days.

Client understands it is his/her job to stop the session at anytime if he/she feels that the infant's safety or wellbeing is at risk. Teraia Photography agrees to never put the newborn at unnecessary risk or compromise his/her wellbeing.
