RELEASE FORM

  • If there are any costs/fees associated with the location the client has chosen for their session, you, the client, will be responsible for those fees

  •  If an illness or situation prevents a photo session from taking place, the Client may reschedule their session at least 24 hours prior to their shoot without penalty. Should the Client fail to give 24 hours’ notice, or decide to completely cancel the shoot, this session fee is forfeited and will not be refunded. The Photographers reserves the right to reschedule due to illness, weather, equipment malfunction, or other circumstances beyond their control.

  • Re-shoots are determined at the discretion of the Photographer. Re-shoots and refunds will not be given for poor choices of clothing, make-up, hair, or weather-related issues.

  • After twelve (12) months, all images will be purged from Photographer’s hard drive, except as needed for promotional purposes, to be determined by Photographer at Photographer’s sole discretion. The photographer is not responsible for loss or damage to the digital files due to circumstances beyond Photographer’s control

  •  Photographer will only provide Client with the number of high-resolution edited digital images as described in the session purchased, and such files will be in a JPEG format. Beyond these files, Photographer will not provide or release any other digital images to the Client, either edited, unedited, JPEG, or RAW files. Such files are the sole property of the Photographer and not subject to distribution.

  • It is very important to have the cooperation of all subjects during a photo session; Photographer is not responsible for uncooperative or disruptive subjects. She will work to the best of her abilities to redirect uncooperative or disruptive behavior but retains the right to end the session even if the time frame has not been met if the subjects continue to be uncooperative or disruptive. The client understands it is their responsibility to manage the behavior of the subjects in the photo session and will not hold Photographer liable for shots or missed poses due to a session ending early. 

  • Client agrees and understands that the quality of a photograph is entirely subjective. Photographer will strive to present photos in a workmanlike manner but is not required to cater to the specific aesthetic preferences of Client. The client understands and agrees that the Client is responsible for determining if a post or location is safe

  •  By submitting this Client Agreement, I hereby given to Photographer the absolute and irrevocable right and permission with respect to the photographs that she has taken of myself and/or my minor child in which he/she may be included with others:

  • To copyright the same in the Photographer’s name or any other name that she may select.

  • To use, re-use, publish and re-publish the same in whole or in part, separately or in conjunction with other photographs, in any medium now or hereafter known, and for any purpose whatsoever, including (but not by way of limitation) illustration, promotion, advertising and trade, and

  • I hereby release and discharge Photographer from all and any claims and demands ensuing from or in connection with the use of the photographs, including any and all claims for libel and invasion of privacy.

  •  If Photographer cannot perform this Agreement in whole or in part due to an Act of God, fire, or other casualty or cause beyond the control of the parties, or due to Photographer's illness, then Photographer shall return the retainer to Client and shall have no further liability with respect to this Agreement. This limitation on liability shall also apply if photographic materials are damaged in processing, lost through camera malfunction, lost in the shipping or mailing process, or otherwise lost or damaged without fault of Photographer. Client agrees that an entire session may not be able to be replicated, reenacted, or repeated for the purpose of re-shoots and agrees to limit Photographer's liability to an amount not to exceed the session fee.

  • Client agrees to indemnify and hold Photographer harmless for any liability, damage, or loss related to technological failure. Cameras, lenses, hard drives, and memory cards are all subject to possible technical failure, and while Photographer will take reasonable steps to prevent such data loss, she is not liable for any loss of data due to technical failure.  

  •  Photographer is not responsible for any injuries inflicted upon any participating parties. Client(s) will be responsible for their children and for themselves and release photographer from any claims against their person or their business.

  • Photographer retains all copyrights to all images created during client’s session. A print release will be included with digital files to print portraits for personal use. The print release does not allow publication of Client's portraits (i.e. entering in contests), selling or altering Client's images without the Photographer’s written permission. It is illegal to copy, scan, download, print, share, alter, or otherwise steal any image created by a Photographer during Client’s photo session. This applies to "sneak peek" images, images posted in an online proofing gallery, blog, Facebook, or hard copy images. If Client steals images via any method listed above, or any other method, Client will be invoiced for the cost of EACH digital image Client has stolen, at Photographer’s current price per digital file.
