7 days heads up or your deposit will be forfeited. No excuses. Going for a spa weekend or attending your child’s recital is not an excuse for a last minute cancellation. When a client cancels last minute it leaves a gap in my schedule for another client I have turned away. It also leaves my crew high and dry and I always take care of my kids. You will also be responsible for the makeup artists fee if the cancellation occurs less than 7 days before the shoot.
