MINI SESSION AGREEMENT
This document is a contractual agreement made between: Mary Sheedy (referred to hereafter as “Photographer”) and Client.
PORTRAIT SESSION: Client is guaranteed up to 25 minutes of shoot time. Mini sessions are limited time wise, so groups of 6 or more may require additional sessions which will be disclosed at the time of booking.
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 amounts paid are non-refundable. Deposits are transferable if a date change is necessary, and a time is available. Forty-eight hours notice of postponements or cancellations is appreciated.
WEATHER: If it is not possible for a session to take place on a scheduled day due to weather, Photographer and Client will reschedule at the same time and place as referenced on the booking page.
COOPERATION/NO SHOWS: Photographer is not responsible if Client and/or key individuals fail to appear or cooperate during portrait sessions. Because mini sessions are scheduled on a very tight basis, any amount of time the client is late will be deducted from their session. Client agrees to try to arrive 10 minutes before their time slot to prevent this.
COPYRIGHT: All images are copyrighted to and remain the property of Mary Sheedy.
CLIENT’S USAGE: Client is obtaining prints for personal use only, and shall not sell said prints or authorize any reproductions by parties other than Photographer. Prints for publication (such as editorial, public relations or advertising use) require prior written consent from Photographer. A credit line which reads “Mary Sheedy” in type no smaller than that of the related text must appear adjacent to or within all permitted published photographs.
EXHIBITION: Client grants Photographer permission to display selected images resulting from this assignment as an example of Photographer’s work and for entrance into photographic competitions and releases all claims to profits that may arise from use of images.
LIMIT OF LIABILITY: We take the utmost care with respect to the exposure, retouching, and transportation of digital captures, proofs and prints. 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.
PRINT LIFE: Client is aware that color dyes and inks in non-archival prints may fade or discolor over time due to the inherent qualities of dyes and inks, and Client releases Photographer from any liability for claims whatsoever based upon the fading or discoloration due to the inherent qualities when prints are not purchased from photographer. Prints purchased from the photographer are guaranteed against natural light fading and will be replaced in the case of unexpected bleaching.
PORTRAIT FEES: Portrait fees include a 25 minute session and an online gallery containing 10+ images in hi-resolution from the session. Portrait fees are determined in advance based on the number of individuals to be photographed and the location of the photo shoot and will always be announced at the time of the mini session release. Payment is due in full upon booking.
PRINT FEES: Prints through the photographer are ordered ala carte. All prints include standard retouching and shipping through the U.S. Postal Service. Prints generally ship via Priority Mail two to four days after Client’s print order has been paid in full.
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 mini session with Mary Sheedy of Where's the Zoom Photography.
