STUDIO OFFICE HOURS & APPOINTMENTS
STUDIO OFFICE HOURS: My office hours are Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm. Because I take appointments before, during, and after my office hours, as well as on weekends, I may not be available when you try to contact me. If you're not able to reach me personally, please leave a message and I will reply by the next business day. Please contact me to schedule an appointment. Thank you!
ALL studio announcements (such as studio events, specials/sales, and partial or full-day closings) will be made through my studio’s Facebook Page, which can be found HERE. Please LIKE and FOLLOW my page to keep up with my studio's announcements.
PAYMENT TYPES: All payment information can be found HERE in our Parent & Player FAQs section.
ALL SALES ARE FINAL: Due to the custom nature of the products and services provided by Lori A. Seals Photography, all sales are final. Items cannot be returned or exchanged. You may add on to your order at any time, but a sale is considered final at the time it is made.
RETURNED CHECK FEE: A $30.00 administrative fee will be applied for any returned checks. If you have had a returned check we reserve the right to require cash only for payment.
SPORTS SESSION & ORDER INFORMATION
PHOTO & RECORDING DEVICES: I request that you, and all those in your party, please refrain from using personal cameras, cell phone cameras, or any other photographic or recording devices during your session. The use of these devices can be distracting to the individual(s) that are being photographed as well as to me, your photographer.
ISSUE WITH YOUR ORDER: If your order is incomplete, or you have another issue with your order please view more information about this HERE. Mistakes happen, we're only human, but we will do everything in our power to correct the issue promptly.
NO SUBSTITUTIONS FOR SPORTS PACKAGES: In order for our studio to offer you the best possible pricing on our Sports Packages no substitutions are allowed.
SUMMER LEAGUE PHOTOS (DISCLAIMER)
We strive to deliver the highest quality of sports-related photos, products, and experiences in our area. Unlike the school sports photo sessions, the summer league sports photo sessions are usually bustling with more uncontrollable activity around our photography area. Because of this, it is more likely that the background of your athlete's photo(s) will include some activity. We do, however, try to keep the background activity as minimal as possible as we manage many different variables during each summer league photo session.
HOW TO ACCESS AN EXPIRED GALLERY
FOR PARENTS: Simply fill out and submit a Late Gallery Request Form HERE with the required information and we'll be happy to recreate your gallery and email the password to you by the next business day.
FOR GRANDPARENTS & FAMILY FRIENDS: We take the security of the young children we photograph very seriously. If you are requesting to view a gallery, active or expired, and you are NOT the parent/guardian, you will either need to contact the parent/guardian to obtain the gallery password or have the parent/guardian contact our studio to give their permission to share the gallery password with you in writing. We thank you for your understanding and for helping us keep all of our young children safe online.

If you would prefer our studio to remove your athlete's Premium Design Style image from our studio's Facebook page, please contact our studio.
WHO'S PHOTOS ARE PUBLISHED? Because of the time involved with creating every student-athlete's photo and Premium Design Style photo it's our studio's policy to only share Premium Design Style photos on our studio's business Facebook page of those student-athletes who have pre-paid or turned in an order form on picture day. All Late Orders or Late Gallery Requests are excluded from being added to their team's album on our studio's business Facebook page. If you have any questions please contact our studio.
