Online Proofing:
Online proofing may also be available in the event an in person ordering session is not possible to schedule but is the decision of Lost Adventurers Photography. Online ordering galleries will only be available for fourteen (14) days, and all orders and payments must be received within two (14) days. After the expiration of the two (2) days, the online gallery will expire and a re-hosting charge of £50 will be added to your final payment if you cannot order within that time. The re-hosting charge will allow for an additional 5 days to place your order. No orders will be processed without having received payment in full for the order. Client must purchase their package in full or lowest priced newborn family session package before the online gallery is live and then can upgrade any package after viewing the images.

Your photographer is allowed to have full artistic licence with editing and any images that are chosen to be edited in black and white cannot be converted back to colour, you can request black and white versions of any colour images but these will count as re-edits and thus chargeable, it is against copyright law for you to change these images to black and white yourself. Alternation of any images handed to the client is strictly forbidden by anyone other than the original photographer, If any re-edits are required after images are handed over 2 images can be re-edited free of charge after the 2 I charge £50 for each additional image to be re-edited. No raw or unedited files are released as this is an unfinished product and I only provide finished edited images to my clients

It is not possible for your photographer to know how you prefer to look, and as a lifestyle photographer I am sometimes shooting you in a natural manner in your home or outside, I can not spend the time in your shoot adjusting your hair or clothing to ensure it is perfect to you as every person prefers something different, please ensure you look the way you would like to in the photos before I take them as I can only re edit 2 free of charge after the shoot.
