Photography Session Contract



I, the client, understand that the retainer fee of half the session fee ($150.00) reserves the time and date of the session and is NON-REFUNDABLE but may be applied to a session at a later date.

I, the client,  understand that the remaining balance is due at the time of the session. 

I, the client, understand that a full session gallery typically contains between 25-30 of the highest-quality images from the session and will be available to download via the link provided by the photographer. 

Session Fee is $300.00, with the exception of Newborns which are $500. Upon your execution of this contract and payment of your retainer fee, Maiden Voyage Photography shall reserve your session time and date at the pre-determined on-site location as mutually agreed upon by the parties. You will receive an e-mail confirmation once your session has been scheduled. Please note that no session is reserved until receipt of payment.

The session fee includes (i) one hour to an hour and a half photography session (ii) professional retouching of 25-30 images as selected by the photographer; and (iii) a digital download which includes high-resolution images for your unlimited use (including print, email, web, etc.).

Terms & Conditions of Contract

Please read below and sign, indicating your agreement.
PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION ORDER: This  signed contract constitutes an order for photography in the form of high-resolution digital images. There are no oral or other agreements of the parties hereto, and this contract constitutes full and complete understanding and agreement between the Client and Photographer. 

LIMIT OF LIABILITY: Although care will be taken with the digital files, the Photographer limits any liability for loss, damage, or failure to deliver photographs for any reason of photographer's non-performance caused by any force or similar circumstances, illness, accident, or any cause beyond their control. In any event, the limit of Photographer's liability shall not exceed the contract price stated herein. 

EXCLUSIVE PHOTOGRAPHER: It is understood that no other photographer, amateur or professional, shall be allowed to photograph at the session near the Photographer while she is working due to reasons of the photographer delivering the quality of images as expected. Any breach of this agreement (including iPhone photography) can constitute a reason for non-completion of the job with no liability to the Photographer. 

OWNERSHIP OF DIGITAL FILES: It is agreed that dual ownership of the purchased digital files will be maintained by the Client and the Photographer. Upon delivery of the digital files to Client's physical control, the client shall gain personal non-commercial rights to the purchased images. It is also agreed that the Photographer will have full rights to use all images for advertising purposes. The Photographer does NOT guarantee archival of the digital files past a period of six months after the session/event date and will not be held responsible if loss occurs as per section 1. 

DISPLAY OR PROMOTION: It is agreed that the Photographer may display and use photographs from session/event for web site and internet promotion, and any other non-commercial purposes thought proper by the Photographer.

SESSION FEE: Upon signature and payment of the session fee, the Photographer reserves the time and date agreed upon and will not make other reservations for that time and date. For this reason, the session fee is non-refundable, even if the photo-session is cancelled for any reason. In the event of sickness, every effort will be made to reschedule the session for another time that is convenient for both parties. Sessions can only be rescheduled one time at no cost.

GUARANTEED DELIVERY: Photographer agrees to have a full gallery complete and delivered via a Pass Gallery within three weeks of the photo session date.

EMPLOYMENT: This contract is not to be construed as an employment agreement in any way. The Photographer functions as an independent contractor.
Client is responsible for their own safety and actions while at the location of the portrait session. Julia Ashbridge/Maiden Voyage Photography is not responsible for any liability, accidents, illnesses, damage or loss; to person or property that may result from the photography session itself or anything related to the photography session. Client maintains the right to refuse any request put forth by Julia Ashbridge during the session to obtain a photo, but agreement to those requests removes liability from Julia Ashbridge/Maiden Voyage Photography.
