DETAILS: The Santa session will last 3-5 minutes and include 5 digital portraits. You will have the option to purchase the complete gallery for and additional $100 once you have seen all of the edited images. If you have had a FULL SESSION since September of 2019 or have a future full session scheduled, you will receive the full gallery add on as a complementary gift.
SANTA and SAMPLE IMAGES: Due to COVID, our original Santa will not be joining us this year. This year's Santa is beautiful, and you will love him! Don't worry, but feel free to message me if you'd like a photo of him before you schedule!! Our background is also tweaked each year and is always kept neutral and timeless.
COOPERATION: The parties agree to cheerful cooperation and communication. Paisley Studios is not responsible for a poor outcome if individuals fail to cooperate during photography sessions or disregard advice on clothing choice. We will try our best to keep sessions running on time, so please arrive ten minutes early so you are dressed and ready to start. You will check in via text upon arrival and will be escorted into the studio for social distance purposes.
CLOTHING: Neutral tones are suggested to compliment Santa's beautiful red suit. Some clients love to wear Sunday best, while others opt for barefoot with pajamas; both options are perfect! Do what you love! Just remember, busy patterns and bold colors may distract from the special moments being created during the session.
IMAGES and COPYRIGHTS: The photographs produced by Paisley Studios are protected by Federal Copyright Law and may not be reproduced in any manner. Purchased images may be used only for personal use and may not be edited, altered, or sold.

LIMIT OF LIABILITY: Paisley Studios takes the utmost care with respect to exposure, transportation, and processing the photographs. However, in the unlikely event that photographs have been lost, stolen, or destroyed for reasons within or beyond Paisley Studios Photography's control, Paisley Studios Photography's liability is limited to a repeat photography session. Paisley Studios Photography is not liable for injury or damage to Clients before, during, or after the photo shoot. Therefore, the client(s) releases Paisley Studios Photography from being held responsible or liable for any injury or damage to any Client(s) involved in said photo shoot or the guardians escorting them to their portraits.

Indoor Studio Sessions:*While Julie Adamson has made every attempt to make her studio safe and welcoming for all clients, the client assumes all responsibility and liability for any accidental injury that may occur while in the Paisley Studios indoor studio space.
COVID: Client assumes all COVID-associated risk. Paisley Studios will do its best to maintain CDC safety standards by sanitize surfaces between families, limiting client interaction by utilizing different rooms within the studio, and having hand sanitizer available for use before children see Santa. Paisley Studios will not be notifying clients of possible COVID exposure from other clients in attendance.
HEALTH AND WELLNESS: All clients are asked to screen themselves and their children for cough, fever, and COVID-related symptoms before your session. We reserve the right to refuse to admit clients who appear to be experiencing symptoms for the safety of other families in attendance.
Due to COVID, we will not be able to serve refreshments and host arts and crafts downstairs this year. We will have elves there to help the day run smoothly, escorting families in and out of the studio, which should help us keep the wait as minimal as possible. We will also limit the number of families we can see this year and ask that one parent escort children in and out of the building if possible.
Outdoor Studio Property:*Client assumes all responsibility & liability for themselves & family members while on studio property. Alabama is prone to insects/pests/wild animals, and while Julie Adamson does her best to check for such things before welcoming clients. Client agrees to release Julie Adamson of liability from all reasonable and otherwise safe outdoor circumstances.
