Client’s Right to Use Materials: Client is obtaining prints for personal use only and Client shall not sell said prints or authorize any reproductions of the prints by any third party unless such reproduction is authorized in writing by Photographer. If Client receives limited, non-exclusive usage rights to digital files, such usage shall be for personal, non-commercial use only. Copyright Ownership: Christy Bode Photography (the “Photographer”) owns all right and title to the copyrights in all images and photographic materials created on behalf of the Client and shall have the exclusive right to make prints or reproductions. Photographer reserves and the Client expressly grants the express right of Photographer to make reproductions and use the photographs and images of Client and/or Client's minor children listed above for use in connection with Photographer's portfolio, samples, self-promotions, affiliate organizations, entry in photographic contests or art exhibitions, advertising and promotion, books, magazines, illustrations, editorial use, or for display within or on the outside of the Photographer's studio, on Photographer's website, including on all printed materials, media on the Internet, and any current or future digital media. Photographer reserves the right to sell and distribute such materials upon written notice to Client at the address listed above. Nothing herein shall be deemed as a release, transfer, assignment or other disposal of Photographer’s rights in the materials. * *
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 deposits paid are non-refundable. Deposits are transferable if a date change is necessary. Forty-eight hours (48) notice of postponements or cancellations is appreciated. 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, or for missed images due to details not revealed to Photographer. Photographer’s camera is the only camera allowed at the photo session because of the distraction it causes, especially to small children, which hinders Photographer’s ability to obtain quality shots. If Client and/or key individuals fail to appear to a scheduled portrait session, the deposit is non-refundable.
LIMIT OF LIABILITY: I take the utmost care with respect to the exposure and retouching of digital captures. 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 the refund of all payments received, or a reshoot can be scheduled at no additional cost. The limit of liability for partial loss or damage of originals shall be a prorated amount of the total amount, based on the percentage of originals lost or damaged. 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. In the unlikely event of a total photographic failure or cancellation of this contract by either party or in any other circumstance, the liability of one party to the other shall be limited to the total value of the contract. Neither party shall be liable for indirect or consequential loss.
RETOUCHING, CONVERSIONS AND DIGITAL FILES: Standard retouching is included in the session fee. Standard retouching includes light blemish, bruises and scratch removal. Lessing of scars or mild acne. Skin may be smoothed to look soft. Not included is complex retouching: hair color changes or adjustments, extreme scarring, laugh lines, nail color/filing, and body-shaping. Please inquire for costs on complex retouching. Photographer has the right to refuse any requested edits to the images.
INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR: This Contract is not to be construed as an employment agreement in any way. The Photographer functions as an independent contractor. 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 portrait session with Photo Doula
