• I agree that PbD (Photography By Dawn) is retained to perform the photographic services.

• If PbD cannot fulfill this contract due to fire or other casualty, strike or other cause beyond the control of the parties, or due to Photographer’s illness or emergency, then the Photographer shall return any deposit or sitting fee if paid to the client but shall have no further liability with respect to the contract. This limitation on liability shall also apply in the event that photographic materials are damaged in processing, lost through camera or media malfunction, lost in the mail, or otherwise lost or damaged without fault on the part of the Photographer. In the event the PbD fails to perform for any other reason, PbD shall not be liable for any amount in excess of all monies paid.

• Due to the nature of equipment and props in use it is important that parents maintain control and ensure safety of children at all time. PbD may suggest or use props and posing and parents need to advise at any time if they prefer to not include certain poses/props. They are also to make sure children are under control so as not to touch additional equipment etc... PbD is not liable for injury during studio sessions or outdoors on location.

• Session fees include the session time only. Images, printed or digital are to be purchased as per the price list that PbD will share with you (unless agreed on in writing before the session)

• Deposit/session fee is non-refundable but if a confirmed date has been set and the client needs to cancel prior to 48 hours in advance of this date PbD will honour the deposit against another session date.
• PbD reserves the right to use images created under this contract for advertising, display, publication or other promotional purposes. The client signing this contract warrants that he or she has actual authority to agree to the use of the likeness of all persons included in the portrait in this manner and shall indemnify and defend PbD in arising out of such use. Negatives, digital files and previews remain the exclusive property of this PbD. Images are not to be sold or used by client for financial gain unless prior approval is given by PbD. Commercial use is not allowed unless commercial rights are purchased by the client

• I have read and understand this agreement, including the terms and conditions, and agree to be bound by them. By proceeding with the session I agree to these terms.
