The booking fee is due on signing this agreement , with the balance of the amount agreed to be paid before beginning of first session.

Entire Agreement: This agreement contains the entire understanding between the Clients and the Photographer.

Confirmation: A signed “Contract for Grow w/ Me Session Photography Services” and payment of the booking fee are necessary to confirm the stated session services from the Photographer.

Pre-Session Consultation: This normally happens at the time of booking. The Clients will outline broadly what is required and the Photographer will advise on planning, logistics and timings where needed.

**It is the clients responsibility to contact the Photographer to schedule each session within the package. Clients should anticipate a two week window for scheduling within Photographers available times.

If needed the Clients are welcome to contact me for an additional consult closer to the time of each session to iron out the remaining details.In any case I will contact you by phone a few days before each session to ensure that there have been no last minute changes. 

Cooperation: The Clients and the Photographer consent to happily cooperating and communicating with each other to achieve the best possible result within the understanding of this contract.

The Schedule: My shooting schedule, style of working and experience are designed to achieve a great set of photos for the Clients, accomplished with good humor and enjoyed by all concerned. Both the Clients and the Photographers therefore agree that punctuality and cheerful cooperation are essential to producing outstanding photographic results. In cases where the session does not run on time (for example, extreme lateness by one of the Clients arriving to the location) I cannot guarantee to take the normal set of photos although in such circumstances I will do my absolute best to compensate.

Paparazzi Guests: Occasionally Clients bring a guest with them to watch or help out during the session. Guest(s) nor client(s) may photograph in any form (dslr, point and shoot, or phone, etc.) any part of the session.

House Rules: Note the Photographer(s) are sometimes limited by rules imposed by registrars and venue management as to what can and cannot be done. For example some insist that no flash photography is allowed, and others will insist that the Photographers shoot from a specific location. In such circumstances the Clients agree to inform Photographer of such before session, and accept the technical limitations that may be imposed on the equipment used. I advise the Clients to make themselves aware of the rules of the venue concerned and if necessary negotiate with the personnel concerned.

Copyright Law: The copyright of photographs remains with the Photographer. The Photographer grants the Clients permission to digitally share the images under the following conditions.

** Logo embedded limited resolution digital files will be provided at the close of contract for this purpose.

  • The images taken by the Photographer are for personal use by the Clients and their friends and relatives.
  • Images may not be edited or logo removed in any way.
  • Images may not be (re)printed from outside source.
  • Sale, Publication or any Commercial use of the photographs is not allowed without prior written permission from the Photographer.

Model Release: The Clients grant the Photographer and its legal representatives, heirs and assigns, the irrevocable and unlimited consent to use the photographs of the Clients for editorial, competition, advertising and any other purpose and in any manner, to alter the photographs without restriction; and to copyright the images. The Clients hereby release the Photographer and its legal representatives, heirs and assigns from all liability and claims in connection with the images.

Limit of Liability: If photographer is too ill or becomes injured and cannot supply the session(s) services specified above, the Photographer will offer to re-schedule. If a second photographer from Gale Photographer is available, this photographer will then shoot the session. If both photographers are unavailable and a replacement photographer cannot be found then liability is limited to a refund of any payments received. The Photographers have working methods in place to prevent loss or damage to your images. However, there is the unlikely possibility that images may be lost, stolen or destroyed for reasons in or beyond our control. In these circumstances liability is limited to the return of fees paid for the service or part thereof according to the percentage of images supplied.

Booking Fee/Deposit: In the event of the Clients cancelling any of the contracted sessions for whatever reason the contract fee is non-refundable. It will be considered as liquidated damages to the Photographers.
