Wild Rose Photography

Child Session Contract 

A. Session Fees

Client agrees to pay photographer a deposit of $100 at the time of booking to secure their appointment date and time. This is a non-refundable retainer fee that goes toward your session. The remaining balance will be required at the time of the session including sales tax. The total price of your package covers the time and talent of photographer, basic retouching and creative editing of images, as determined by the photographer, and all of the digital images to be downloaded by client from shootproof.com. 

B. Location 

Child sessions can take place either in studio or outdoors on location. This will be agreed upon by Photographer and Client. Outdoor session will be dependent on weather, and can be rescheduled if weather is not cooperating at no additional charge to the Client. 

C. Rescheduling

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

D. Re-shoots / Refunds

If the Photographer is unable to perform the session due to baby’s disposition, condition, or circumstances listed within this contract, the Client shall be allowed to reschedule at no additional cost at the discretion of the Photographer. 

E. Archive

After six (6) 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. Photographer is not responsible for loss or damage to the digital files due to circumstances beyond photographer’s control.

F. Payment

All payments are due in full at time of session. Images will not be released to Client until full payment has been received.  

G. Model Release

I hereby give to Wild Rose Photography the absolute and irrevocable right and permission with respect to the photographs that he/she has taken of myself and/or my minor child in which he/she may be included with others:

a) To copyright the same in the photographer’s name or any other name that he/she may select;

b) 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.

H. Liability

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.

I. Copyright & Penalty

Wild Rose Photography retains all copyrights to all images created during client’s session. A release will be provided with digital files to portraits for personal use. The release does not allow publication of your portraits (i.e. entering in contests), selling or altering of your images without the photographer’s written permission. It is illegal to copy, scan, download, share, alter, or otherwise steal any image created by Wild Rose Photography 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.

Note from photographer: I work very hard to create images that reflect you and your family, while keeping in line with my artistic vision and creativity. I know you will want to share them and include a sneak-peek for that very reason. However, I ask that you simply share your sneak peak instead of right-clicking, saving, and sharing the image via your own page. Sharing your purchased images to your personal facebook/social media pages is fine. If you would like to tag Wild Rose Photography in your images it is always appreciated.

J. Session Requests

*No cameras/camcorders/any type of recording device (this includes cell phone cameras) are allowed during the session unless prior arrangement has been made between client and photographer, including a written agreement.
