This document is a contractual agreement made between: Misty Broadney (referred to hereafter as “Photographer”) and Client.
PORTRAIT SESSION: Client is booking for up to 20 minutes of shoot time. I understand that if I am late for my session, my time will be cut short or may be rescheduled if applicable.
CANCELLATION/POSTPONEMENT: Client understands that by entering into this agreement, Photographer is foregoing other photographic jobs. In the event of a cancellation or postponement of the portrait session/agreement by Client, the amounts paid are non-refundable. . Forty-eight hours notice of postponements or cancellations is appreciated.
WEATHER: If it is not possible for a session to take place on a scheduled day due to weather, Photographer and Client will reschedule on an agreed date at the earliest date possible, with no additional charge.
COOPERATION/NO SHOWS: Photographer is not responsible if Client and/or key individuals fail to appear or cooperate during portrait sessions. Client agrees that photographer is not responsible for the mood of the child being photographed during the session time. The photographer will do her best to get usable images during the session time, but it is not guaranteed. Client is then responsible in making sure the child is well rested and happy for the session. It is recommended that parents of the child/children schedule their session around nap times and times that the child is usually cranky to avoid any issues like this. Make sure the child(ren) is/are well rested and fed before arriving at the session (bring snacks or toys as necessary)
COPYRIGHT: All images are copyrighted to and remain the property of Misty Broadney. Print release may be given for images purchased and may be used for purchased images only.
CLIENT’S USAGE: Client is obtaining prints for personal use only, and shall not sell said prints or authorize any reproductions by parties other than Photographer. Prints for publication (such as editorial, public relations or advertising use) require prior written consent from Photographer.
EXHIBITION: Client grants Photographer permission to display selected images resulting from this assignment as an example of Photographer’s work and for entrance into photographic competitions and releases all claims to profits that may arise from use of images.
LIMIT OF LIABILITY: We take the utmost care with respect to the exposure, retouching, and transportation of digital captures, proofs and prints. However, in the unlikely event that all the originals are lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed within or beyond Photographer’s control, Photographer’s liability is limited to a reshoot scheduled at no additional cost or the booking of a shoot of similar value. In the unlikely event that Photographer is injured or becomes too ill to attend the portrait session, Photographer will make every effort to reschedule to the earliest possible date.
PRINT LIFE: Client is aware that color dyes and inks in non-archival prints may fade or discolor over time due to the inherent qualities of dyes and inks, and Client releases Photographer from any liability for claims whatsoever based upon the fading or discoloration due to the inherent qualities when prints are not purchased from photographer. Prints purchased from the photographer are guaranteed against natural light fading and will be replaced in the case of unexpected bleaching.
PORTRAIT FEES: Portrait fees include a 20 minute session and a digital download containing up to 30 images(packages may vary) in hi-resolution from the session. Additional images may be purchased per image or by full gallery for an additional fee.
Prints through the photographer are ordered ala carte or by print package. All prints include standard retouching and shipping through the U.S. Postal Service. Prints generally ship via Priority Mail two to four weeks after Client’s print order has been paid in full and/or before specified date. Rush printing and shipping can reduce delivery times by one to two weeks. A 50% rush fee is applied to the cost of each rush print.
RETOUCHING, CONVERSIONS AND DIGITAL FILES: Client understands prints must not be made from these low-resolution images and are for your digital viewing only.
Hi-resolution and low-resolution digital files are delivered via pixieset gallery within one week to two weeks of your session. Your digital gallery will be live for 2 weeks after being posted. Client agrees to download their chosen images and/or order print choices within this time frame to avoid reactivation fees. If the gallery is not downloaded and archived by the client within the two week time frame, the client agrees to pay the fee of $40 to have their gallery reactivated and available for download.
ENTIRE AGREEMENT: This agreement contains the entire understanding between Photographer and Client. It supersedes all prior agreements between the parties. The only way to add or change this agreement is to do so in writing, signed by all the parties. If the parties want to waive one provision of this agreement, it does not mean that any other provision is also waived.
This constitutes an order for one “special priced” portrait session with Misty Broadney Photography.
