General Policies

Your images will be presented to you in an online, password-protected gallery within three weeks of your session date.

All images are copyrighted by Amy Tripple Photography. Any purchased images can be printed as desired and/or posted on social networking sites (Facebook, Instagram, etc...), personal websites, and blogs.  Because we retain the copyright to every image, you may not use them for advertising or other revenue-producing purposes without express permission.

You will be presented with 25 - 30 images from your session. Though many more images will be captured, our quality standards and your completed session questionnaire will determine which pictures will be selected and edited. Each image is custom-edited in both color and black-and-white. Due to our workflow structure, additional images will not be shown after the gallery has been posted.

Family photo sessions are limited to immediate family members only. Due to increased editing time, additional family units can be added for $100 each.

Amy will travel up to 10 miles from her studio in Hinsdale, IL for on-location sessions.  If you’d like to schedule a session at a location farther from this, please contact us for a travel quote.

Full Family Sessions, Maternity Sessions, and Senior Sessions are up to 60 minutes in length, Lifestyle Mini Sessions are up to 25 minutes in length, Newborn Sessions are up to 3 hours in length, and Headshot Sessions are up to 20 minutes in length. Amy works quickly (especially with little ones!) to capture your images. Through experience, Amy has learned that children respond more positively to a session that “keeps things moving”. One of the keys to success is staying aware of each family member’s comfort level. If all necessary images have been captured before the full session time length is completed, Amy will either continue photographing for additional options or end the session, depending on the childrens’ moods. Please be aware that the price of your session reflects the final product of a beautiful gallery of images, not necessarily the full duration of the session itself.

Please limit your family session to a single outfit per person (no wardrobe changes). If you have a specific situation that requires an outfit change, please reach out ahead of time to inquire.

Your online gallery will be active for 1 week from its post date. All orders should be placed within this 7 day period. After your gallery expires, we will charge a $50 fee to reopen it. This policy is non-negotiable.

Print orders are limited to corresponding purchased digital images only. 

Print orders will be delivered to your home within two weeks of the order date. Due to the custom nature of photographic prints and products, all sales are final. If, however, there is any issue with a print or product you’ve ordered through us, please let us know so we can make it right!

All print orders are subject to applicable sales tax.

Any prints or products not processed through our professional lab will not be guaranteed by Amy Tripple Photography due to common color and finish discrepancies.

We accept cash, personal checks, and all major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, & American Express).

In the interest of fairness to all clients, we are unable to offer special deals or discounts.  For this reason, please understand that session fees, print prices, and business policies are non-negotiable.  Thank you for respecting our work and livelihood by not requesting fee or session exceptions.
