Mini Session Contract
MINI SESSION FEE: The mini session fee includes an optional pre-session consultation via phone or email to cover details in advance, 30 minutes of the photographer's time and talent. Full payment of the session fee is due at the time of booking and guarantees your appointment time. Session fees for mini sessions are considered a non-refundable retainer. In the event of rain for an outdoor session your session fee will be applied to the reschedule date or another session, it will not be refunded.
ARRIVAL: Please note that you must be on time for your mini session. These are typically scheduled back to back. If you are late the time will be deducted from your session time. I recommend arriving about 10 mins early. You can come into the studio even if I am still shooting. In the hall way there are chairs where you can take a seat, and your children can start to warm up to being in a new place. There is also a restroom for your convince.
PAYMENT: Cheryl Logan Photography shall reserve the date and time agreed upon, and not make any other reservations or accept any other clients for said date and time. For this reason, in the event that the client cancels the contract (session) for any reason, all monies paid shall be retained by Cheryl Logan Photography in order to offset its loss of business. There are no refunds for mini sessions.
COPYRIGHTS: the photographs produced by Cheryl Logan Photography are protected by Federal Copyright Law (all rights reserved) and may not be reproduced in any manner without Cheryl Logan Photography explicitly written permission. A print release is provided for this session.
DIGITAL FILES: The CLIENT understands Cheryl Logan Photography still owns the copyright to all photos that are downloaded. The photos must not be edited, cropped or change in any way without written permission from Cheryl Logan Photography. Photos are to be used for personal use only. The CLIENT accepts all responsibility for archiving and protecting the photographs. It is CLIENT'S responsibility to make sure that digital files are backed up and saved. Cheryl Logan Photography does hold images for 3 months and charges a $25 archival fee to relist old galleries.
MODEL RELEASE: I hereby give Cheryl Logan Photography the irrevocable right to use my picture, portrait, or photograph in all forms and in all media and in all manners, without any restriction as to changes or alterations for advertising, trade, promotion, exhibition, or any other lawful purposes, and I waive any right to inspect or approve the photograph(s) or finished version(s).
LIMIT OF LIABILITY: In the unlikely event that the photographer is injured or becomes too ill to photograph the session, the studio will make every effort to secure a replacement photographer unless otherwise specified by the client. If the situation should occur and a suitable replacement is not found or accepted, a reshoot will be scheduled for the next available time slot. In the unlikely event that photographs have been lost, stolen, or destroyed for reasons within or beyond studio control, studio liability is limited to the return of all payments received for the portrait session. The limit of liability for a partial loss of originals will be a prorated amount of the exposures lost based on the percentage of the total number of originals. In the event of a dispute, the client agrees to arbitration.
ARBITRATION: Any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to this contract, or the breach thereof, shall be settled by arbitration, administered in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association, administered by a licensed Arbitrator in the jurisdiction closest to the Photographer’s office and the arbitration award may be entered for judgment in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, either party may refuse to arbitrate when the dispute is for a sum less than $200. In no event shall an award in an arbitration initiated under this clause exceed the contracted price of the controversy in dispute.
OTHER: The photographer cannot be held responsible for injury during session. Please proceed with caution on location or on studio property. The behavior of children or session participants is outside the control of Cheryl Logan Photography. For this reason I cannot guarantee pictures with smiles or certain expressions. I will do my absolute best to interact and make your child as comfortable as possible. My goal is always to have a fun filled session. Please know that mini sessions cannot be rescheduled due to behavior. Please book a full session if you know your child may need more time to warm up.
By continuing you agree that you have read and understood the terms above.
