TERMS AND CONDITIONS:
Hi there! I'm so excited to work with you. Please take a moment to read over this contract. By paying for your session fee and securing your time slot, you agree to the following terms:
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.
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. This means you may not edit any of my images, apply filters on Instagram, etc. If you would like to post your images socially, please give Paisley Studios credit. Raw, unedited files are not available at any time.
MODEL RELEASE: The client(s) hereby grant to Paisley Studios Photography unrestricted right to use and publish photographs of the client. This includes (but is not limited to) a sneak peek on Facebook, a featured post on website, Instagram, etc. If you would prefer to not have your child's portrait as part of our preview, please let me know.
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 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) in volved in said photo shoot. No compensation in any form will be given by Paisley Studios Photography or Julie Adamson, and it is ultimately the responsibility of the Client(s) to ensure their safety at all times.
PAYMENT SCHEDULE: The total session fee (plus any chosen upgrade, plus tax) is due at time of signing this agreement. This is a NON-REFUNDABLE PAYMENT that secures your session date with Paisley Studios Photography. At the time the contract takes effect, Paisley Studios Photography shall reserve the date and time agreed upon. For this reason, in the event that the Client cancels the contract for any reason, all monies paid shall be retained by Paisley Studios Photography in order to offset loss of business. Session is non-transferable to another date/time, but may be gifted or sold. Please notify me if you will not be attending your session.
Your session includes siblings; no family portraits will be taken. Your child(ren) will have 3-5 minutes with Santa, and you will receive digital files in an online gallery. This gallery will be delivered within fourteen days. Paisley Studios Photography is not responsible for printing errors or for quality/print of products not printed through our professional printer.
**PLEASE READ**: These sessions will move quickly. Some children love Santa, and some not so much. I will not force a child to sit on Santa's lap for a full five minutes if they are crying. If they are scared, I will do my best to grab a smiling shot at the beginning, but cannot guarantee that you will receive a happy, smiling picture. Your gallery may be full of a child screaming, so please understand I cannot control their reaction to Santa Claus and there will be no redo's. While this is rarely the case, it is still a memory. I want to be sure to never make a child feel uncomfortable or forced into a situation that will make them feel uncomfortable.
Do you have any questions? Please ask! Use the space below if you have any comments,questions, or concerns. I will call or email you back shortly.
Once again, by paying for this session and reserving your spot, you agree to all of the terms within this contract.
