Kara Hanes Photography COVID-19 Policy:

Regardless of how some feel about the situation please do the following. Check your temperature before your session. If you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 please reschedule your session until you have been tested or know you’re COVID free. At each session I will be wearing a mask and keeping my distance. Due to the nature of outside photos I promise to keep my distance and will direct my clients verbally. For all other questions please visit the state of Michigan’s policy.


FAQ About payments:

What if the state of Michigan gets shut down again?

Please note that all agreements share the below policy. If the state is shutdown due to a global pandemic such as COVID-19 you can choose one of two options

  1. Reschedule your session for a later date.
  2. Have all monies returned less your retainer fee and expenses.

As stated in the proposal agreement:

If the Photographer or its assigns cannot perform  due to a fire, casualty, strike or other civil disturbances,  a global pandemic, acts of God, including but not limited to, road closures, severe traffic, fire, terrorism or other causes beyond the control of the parties, then the Photographer shall return any moneys paid by the Client, less retainer fee and expenses, but shall have no further liability with respect to the Agreement. This limitation of liability shall also apply in the event that photographic materials are damaged, lost through camera malfunction, compact flash card malfunction, or otherwise lost or damaged without the fault on the part of the Photographer. The limit of liability for a partial loss of originals shall be a prorated amount of the exposures lost based on the percentage of total number of originals.
