Studio Policies

Studio Policies

Picture taking and video recording is strictly prohibited during photo sessions and in the Bella Mi Photography Studios.

Please no food or open beverages in the studio (bottles, sippy cups and cups with lids are allowed).

We understand that it is easy to run late when getting little ones ready for a photo session – but please know that we are not able to extend your session time since we often book appointments back to back. In order to fully utilize your entire session, please try to be on time and ready to begin at your scheduled time!

If you need time before your session to prepare or change yourself or your child(ren), please arrive no more than 15 minutes early for your scheduled time. There is a restroom available for changing or primping.

Our studio is full of props and to children they look like toys – we kindly ask that you not allow your child(ren) to handle or play with the props. This is for your child’s own safety, since our props are not child proof and require supervision of a Bella Mi Associate.

Sneak Peek Policy:

At Bella Mi Photography, we pride ourselves on our commitment to edit and deliver your pictures in a timely manner. After your photography session, this is our number one goal. At times, we post “Sneak Peek” pictures of sessions to our Bella Mi Photography Facebook and/or Twitter pages. Picture postings are done as a form of advertising for our studio and sharing our talent with Facebook and/or Twitter followers.

“Sneak Peek” postings are not part of your session fee, they are not guaranteed, and are not posted in a particular order or time frame. Bella Mi Photography is not able to tag clients on our “Sneak Peek” postings, however our clients are encouraged to tag/share “Sneak Peeks” on their own pages and with their family and friends.

As clients, you receive your pictures through digital downloads that are copyright-free and watermark-free. Sharing your own “Sneak Peeks” of your favorite poses is allowed and encouraged! You may even tag Bella Mi Photography or @BellaMiStudio if you would like!

Policy Regarding Deposits:

Deposits made as reservation of a session may apply as partial payment for your session. Deposits are not required of all sessions, but can be required for confirmation of any session at any time. Deposits are able to be paid online through PayPal or in-studio with cash or check.

For sessions that require a deposit (park minis, certain in-studio promotional minis, etc. at the discretion of the Studio), the deposit rendered at the time of booking is non-refundable, non-transferable, and can only be applied to a future session if your session is cancelled on our behalf due to weather, electricity outages, other "acts of god," or at the discretion of the Studio. We require a $50, non-refundable deposit to reschedule a "no-show" session. Any session not cancelled within 12 hours before the session time will be considered a "no-show." Exceptions may apply. If you have questions about our Policies Regarding Deposits, please email the Studio at

Thank you in advance for your help, and as always, we look forward to "giving you the gift of reliving beautiful moments through beautiful pictures!"
