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. It is illegal to copy, scan, download, print, share, alter, or otherwise steal any image created by Lavender Lime Photography (Emily Hamson) during model's photo session. This applies to "sneak peek" images, images posted in an online proofing gallery, blog, Facebook, Instagram or hard copy images. If client steals images via any method listed above, or any other method, client will be invoiced for the cost of EACH digital image client has stolen, at photographer’s current price per digital file.
D. Model Call Payment/Compensation

The model will receive the digital files of all edited pictures they are in. These files will be for personal use, to print and share online as outlined above. Digital files cannot be sold to a third party, entered into contests, or posted without the proper attribution to the photographer.
Note from Emily: I work very hard to create images that keep in line with my artistic vision and creativity. I know you will want to share them, however, I ask that you simply link back to my blog/website/Facebook/Instagram page instead of right-clicking, saving or taking a screen shot 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 do not steal them.
