A. Session Fees
Client agrees to pay Lavender Lime Photography a deposit of $100 at the time of booking to secure their appointment date and time. This is a non-refundable retainer fee that goes toward your session. The balance of the current session price listed on the website is due at the time of the session. The session fee covers the time and talent of Lavender Lime photographer/videographer, basic retouching and creative editing of images as determined by the photographer, editing of film, and images or videos via digital download--depending upon the session package desired. Additional editing is available at an additional $15 per hour. Additional prints or digital images will be available for purchase at current costs as described on the website at time of booking.
B. Location Costs & Fees
If there are any costs/fees associated with the location you have chosen for your session, you, the client, will be responsible for those fees. Lavender Lime Photography will not guarantee or arrange payment on any location. Creative fee covers travel within 30 miles of Elwood, Utah. Any location outside of these limits will be subject to an additional charge of $.60/mile as part of the agreement.
If an illness or situation prevents a photo session from taking place, you may reschedule your session at least 24 hours prior to their shoot without penalty. Should you fail to give 24 hours notice, or decide to completely cancel the shoot, the booking fee is forfeited and will not be refunded. Lavender Lime Photography reserves the right to reschedule due to illness, weather, equipment malfunction, or other circumstances beyond 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 or weather related issues, or by not following the recommendations of the photographer.
After twelve (12) months, all images and videos will be purged from photographer’s hard-drive, except as needed for promotional purposes, to be determined by photographer at photographer’s sole discretion. Photographer is not responsible for loss or damage to the digital files due to circumstances beyond photographer’s control.
All payments are due in full unless payment arrangements have been made. Orders will not be processed until payment in full is received. If client has arranged a payment plan, order will be placed after the final payment has been received.
Photographer is not responsible for the damage of images or videos after delivery to client, including damage caused during transit by US mail. Client assumes all responsibility for the safety of images and videos upon receipt.
H. Model Release
I hereby give to Lavender Lime Photography the absolute and irrevocable right and permission with respect to the photographs and videos that she has taken of myself and/or my minor child in which may be included with others:
a) To copyright the same in Lavender Lime Photography's name;
b) To use, re-use, publish and re-publish the same in whole or in part, separately or in conjunction with other photographs or video clips, 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 the 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.
Lavender Lime Photography is not responsible for any injuries inflicted upon any participating parties prior to, during and after the photo/video shoot. Client(s) will be responsible for their children and for themselves and release photographer from any claims against their person or their business.
J. Copyright & Penalty
Lavender Lime Photography retains all copyrights to all images created during client’s session. A print release may be purchased or given with digital files to print portraits for personal use up to designated size listed on print release. 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 during client’s photo session. This applies to "sneak peek" images, images posted in an online proofing gallery, blog, Facebook, 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.
Note from photographer: I work very hard to create images and films that reflect you, while keeping in line with my artistic vision and creativity. I know you will want to share them online. 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. When re-posting, do not cut off the watermark, add filters or alter the image in any way--this includes in-app filters. I hope that you will respect not only my hard work, but the time, money, and dedication that I have put intomy training and equipment to capture these images and videos for you. Please do not steal them.
K. Session Requests
*No cameras/camcorders/any type of recording device (this includes cell phone cameras) are allowed during the session unless prior arrangement has been made between client and Lavender Lime Photography, including a written agreement. The photographer will not continue if there are other cameras or video taping during the session.
*Session starts at the agreed upon time. It is strongly encouraged that client arrives 15 minutes prior to the start of session. This allows for any last-minute feeding, changing, and relaxing before session begins. If you are late, it cuts into your session time.
*Please do not bring any children not being photographed to the session.
*Please make sure hair is combed and face is clean and free of runny noses or eyes.
*Please avoid eating or drinking red, purple or orange food or drinks at least one day before session, as these colors tend to leave a stain on the face.
L. Sharing of your photos.
Sharing your photos via social media, my blog, newsletter and website are a wonderful way for me to advertise for free--keeping my costs down. If you let me share your photos online, I will never use real names (only initials). This helps me, and can help you get referral credits! (Please see my referral program on my website.) I will only share your pictures and videos where you wish. Please mark below.
M. *Brand new!* A family film will be shared and available for purchase during the ordering session, if created by me in conjunction with the photo session.
If you still need to pay the $100 deposit, you can do so various ways!
Next stop: questionnaire, so I can get to know you a bit better and tailor your session for you!
You do not need to answer every question, but the more you answer, the better I will get to know your family, and can make you feel comfortable in your session!
Please remember that this session is not something for you to be stressed about! I know (from being on both sides of the camera) that you want your children to be perfect during the session--the perfect smiles, the perfect hair, the perfect behavior. I also know that when mama is stressed, everyone is stressed. So just sit back and relax. Enjoy this time with your family, and let me do my thing. I promise I can make you look good. I promise to make it painless. And I promise that you will look back at your images and/or film someday and smile whenever you see them. Thank you for letting me "shoot" you!
