The Fine Print
This contract is between me and my clients. My clients are important to me and I want to give them the best and smoothest experience.
If for any reason you should cancel a session
Rescheduling and late arrivals -
I understand that life happens and that the weather might not co-operate with our session plans. If we need to reschedule due to weather, we will find a date that is closest to our original date as possible.
If you reschedule due to illness, or other reasons you will not be charged a penalty for rescheduling a session provided at least a 24 hours notice is given. No show or rescheduling within 24 hours will incur a $50 reschedule fee at my discretion.
v Client agrees to arrive 10 minutes before agreed upon meeting time. If client is late the photoshoot might be shorter than the agreed time.
Control of Subject in attendance –
v Client shall assist and cooperate with Photographer in obtaining desired photographs. Photographer shall not be responsible for photographs not taken as a result of Client’s failure to provide reasonable assistance or cooperation. Client will be respectful to Photographer and all parties being photographed. Photographer has the right to end the session, without refund, if there is lack of cooperation or respect.
Infant sessions may be purchased as a one-year package. Clients who purchase a one-year package are responsible for contacting Photographer to schedule each session. Photographer is not responsible for missed sessions. Missed sessions are not refundable. If client cancels the rest of a one-year discounted package, the balance of the package is still due.
Completion schedule – No part of any order, including previews, will be delivered until the balance is paid in full. Payment for prints is required in full at the time of placing an order. Prints will not be ordered until payment is made.
Completion of processing and edits of a photography session may take four (4) weeks for delivery.
Artistic Rights –
With your permission I would like to use photos from our shoot RAW images, edited images and/or reproductions for advertising, display, publication or other purposes, not restricted to use on the web, Facebook, business cards, or posters.
Original photographs are not included, only edits. Photographer retains the right to edit the photographs and omit any image. It is understood that Photographer will not deliver every exposure taken. Client agrees to abide by Photographer’s editing decisions
Client understands that when publishing photos on websites, i.e. personal website, Facebook, etc., client will not edit the photos in any way, i.e. editing the watermark, cropping, filters, etc.
v Travel fee outside of the Greater Ottawa area is included in the session fee. A travel fee for sessions outside of Lafayette may be added to the cost of the contract. Contracts that require multiple trips (one year infant packages) may require a travel fee for each session. Travel fees are based on mileage to and from the location and may change as necessary. All travel fees must be prepaid.
