We ask that you please not upload any image that does not bear our watermark, and to always give credit to your photographer. For your protection and ours, all images posted on the internet must carry our watermark. If you are in need of a different crop of an image which would result in cropping of the watermark, please notify us and we will send you a new file. It is a violation of copyright to screen shot or scan your images and upload them to social media sites. Please also inform family members of these rules.

Due to the nature of digital photography Abigayle Ray Photography has a strict NO REFUNDS POLICY. If a Client is dissatisfied with the work they receive, the Client must notify the Studio so that a re-shoot of the session (at no additional charge) can be scheduled at the Clients convenience and also the Studios schedule as we normally book weeks and months in advance. Refunds will NOT be given due to “not liking a photo” or “not getting the pose I wanted”, selecting an incorrect location/background, or any other reason.
ARTISTIC IMAGE SELECTION
Abigayle Ray Photography will capture many images during the session. After the session, the photographer exclusively puts each image through a careful selection process. You will see only the images in an online gallery that meet the high standards of the photographer. Images captured of eyes closed, people talking, unﬂattering poses and duplicate images are removed permanently after Abigayle Ray Photography completes this selection process. The selection process is done at the sole discretion of the photographer and part of the custom portrait process.
A few images will be presented in black and white. These are produced at the photographer’s discretion. If you would like additional images presented in black and white, there is an additional fee.
