A. Session Fees
Client agrees to pay photographer at the time of the session. The session fee covers the time and talent of photographer, retouching and creative editing of images, as determined by the photographer, and reveal session. Prints, canvases, albums, digital files, and other products, will be available for purchase at the reveal session, and from online gallery.
B. Location Costs & Fees
If there are any costs/fees associated with the location the client has chosen for their session, you, the client, will be responsible for those fees. The photographer will not guarantee or arrange payment on any location. Session fee covers travel within 30 minutes of Yakima, WA. Any location outside of these limits will be subject to an additional charge of $.50/mile as part of the agreement.
If an illness or situation prevents a photo session from taking place, client may reschedule their session prior to their shoot. Photographer reserves the right to reschedule due to illness, weather, equipment malfunction, or other circumstances beyond their control.
D. Re-shoots / Refunds
Re-shoots are determined at the discretion of the photographer. Re-shoots and refunds will not be given for poor choices of clothing, make-up, hair style, location, or weather related issues, or by not following the recommendations of the photographer.
E. Online Gallery / Archive
After six (6) months from the day the onilne gallery is published, all images will be archived and online gallery will be taken down. Once gallery has been archived, client may request online gallery be "re-published" for a $5 fee in order to purchase additional prints/canvases. Photographer is not responsible for loss or damage to the digital files due to circumstances beyond photographer’s control.
The session fee is due in full by the time of the session unless payment arrangements have been made. Online galleries will not be published until payment in full is received. If client has arranged a payment plan, online gallery will be published after the final payment has been received. Collections and products purchased during the reveal session will not be delivered to client until cost is paid in full.
Photographer is not responsible for the damage of portraits after delivery to client, including damage caused during transit by US mail. Client assumes all responsibility for the safety of all portraits upon receipt.
H. Model Release
I hereby give to Sarah Robison Photography the absolute and irrevocable right and permission with respect to the photographs that he/she has taken of myself and/or my minor child in which he/she may be included with others:
a) To copyright the same in the photographer’s name or any other name that he/she may select;
b) To use, re-use, publish and re-publish the same in whole or in part, separately or in conjunction with other photographs, in any medium now or hereafter known, and for any purpose whatsoever, including (but not by way of limitation) illustration, promotion, advertising and trade, and;
I hereby release and discharge photographer from all and any claims and demands ensuing from or in connection with the use of the photographs, including any and all claims for libel and invasion of privacy.
Photographer is not responsible for any injuries inflicted upon any participating parties. Client(s) will be responsible for their children and for themselves and release photographer from any claims against their person or their business.
Sarah Robison Photography retains all copyrights to all images created during client’s session. If digital files are purchased, during the reveal session or afterwards from online gallery, a print release will be included with digital files to print portraits for personal use at any photo lab of client's choosing. The print release does not allow publication of your portraits (i.e. entering in contests), selling or altering of your images without the photographer’s written permission. If no digital files are purchased, client may only order prints and products during the reveal session, or directly from online gallery. It is illegal to copy, scan, print, share, alter, or otherwise steal any image created by Sarah Robison Photography from client’s photo session. This applies to "sneak peek" images, images posted in online gallery, blog, Facebook, or hard copy images.
Note from photographer: I work very hard to create images that reflect you, while keeping in line with my artistic vision and creativity. I know you will want to share them and include a sneak-peek for that very reason. However, I ask that you simply link back to my blog/website/facebook page instead of right-clicking, saving, and sharing the image via your own page. I hope that you will respect not only my hard work, but the time, money, and dedication that I have put into training and equipment to capture these images for you. Please give credit where credit is due.
