  • X. Truth in Photography Clause

    Photography is an artistic interpretation of what a photographer sees when taking a photograph. The interpretation includes the subjects, the posing, the location available and the lighting available at the time of the session. There needs to be a level of trust between the photographer and the subject(s) for the end result to be pleasing to the subject and the photographer. If any party or parties in your session are unwilling to be open to posing or expression suggestions, it is best to discuss this with your photographer before the session begins.
