Studio Margaret will charge deposit fee for cancellations not made before 48 hours. Please note, that the entire deposit fee will be also assessed if we arrive at the property to find the shoot is cancelled (including denied access to the property and the home not being ready for photos). Please read Guideline to preparing the Home below.

Reschedules of the session will be accommodated if the new date does not conflict with an existing booking. Photographer must be informed about it as soon as it is possible.There may apply additional fee for rescheduling.

Realtors are responsible to check the weather and house status before scheduling a shoot, therefore, there will be fee of $25 assessed for rescheduling due to bad weather and 100$ for a property not being ready for photos. No exceptions! If it is raining at the time of the shoot, we will continue with the interior shots and wait or return for the exterior shots at another time. If the property is not ready, we will not do any shooting and return another time (in that case if we cannot take pictures when the house is ready and 100$ will be charged for this reschedule). We will not charge additional fee if Studio Margaret is notified about rescheduling in right time and before leaving to the session.

Delivery of the product:

The photographer will take pictures of the whole property as requested: inside - each room and outside area. The photographer can offer drone and night photography for outside area as well. 

After the session, the photographer will be culling the best photos (eliminating duplicates, blurs, and blinks) and editing to give them best natural look. The best selected pictures are then edited and delivered to the client.

The number of delivered pictures is not specified, nor limited and all best pictures will be delivered. The amount of pictures is depending on several factors such as: length of the session, size of the property, number of rooms, location, weather, cooperation and others.
