TERMS AND CONDITIONS:
Hi there! I'm so excited to welcome your children to our 5th annual Santa experience! Please take a moment to READ OVER THIS CONTRACT. By paying your session fee and securing your time slot, you agree to the following terms:
DETAILS: Your Santa session will last 3-5 minutes, and will include 5 digital portraits. You will have the option to purchase the complete gallery for an additional $100 once you have seen all of the edited images. If you have had a FULL SESSION since September of 2020, or have a future full session scheduled, you will receive the complete Santa gallery add-on as a complimentary gift.
SAMPLE IMAGES: The images used on social media are from last year's event. We tweak the background each year to give you a unique experience.
SANTA: We are thrilled to welcome the same Santa from 2020 (as seen in the sample images) for this year's event! However, in the event of illness or other extenuating circumstances, Paisley Studios will hire another Santa. In the unlikely event that this occurs, refunds will not be given.
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; please arrive ten minutes early so you are dressed and ready to start.
FAMILY MEMBERS: Your session includes your immediate children (siblings only); no family portraits with parents, cousins, or grandparents will be taken.
CLOTHING: Neutral tones are suggested to complement 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.
DELIVERY OF PHOTOS: Your digital gallery will be delivered within 10 days. You will have full ownership of the photos you purchase (5 photos or complete gallery). You will also have the option to purchase prints through our professional printer. If you choose to print elsewhere, Paisley Studios Photography is not responsible for printing errors, coloring changes, or quality/print of products not printed through our professional printer.
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. 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 included, 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 to a refund of monies paid. 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 and Julie Adamson from being held responsible or liable for any injury or damage to any Client(s) or guardians. No compensation in any form will be given to client by Paisley Studios Photography or Julie Adamson, as it is ultimately the responsibility of the Client(s) to ensure their safety at all times. Alabama is prone to insects/pests/wild animals outdoors, and while Julie Adamson does her best to check for such things before welcoming clients, Client agrees to release Julie Adamson of liability.
COVID: Client assumes all COVID-associated risk. Paisley Studios will do its best to maintain CDC safety standards by sanitizing surfaces, 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.
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 Julie if you will not be attending your session. In the event that the state mandates a closure that keeps us from holding Santa sessions, your session fee is transferrable to next year or toward a future session with Paisley Studios, but it is NON-REFUNDABLE.
