Thank you for choosing Paper Crane Studios to preserve your precious memories! Please read the following agreement carefully.
In order to secure a time/ date, or reserve a photo session, you are required to pay a $50 - $100 non refundable deposit. The deposit is transferable in the event you need to change your session date. You many reschedule your session in the event of sickness, poor weather conditions or personal matters, for this, I wish for you to give me as much notice as you can. The deposit will be lost if you have not shown up to your session or have not provided me with at least a 4 hour notice. If you are late for your session, that time will still count as apart of the time period you were booked for. If you are over 30 minutes late, the session will need to be moved and you will loose your deposit and need to send another one to hold your new spot. The reason for this is that I wont have enough time left to get the shots I need and another session may be booked after you. The $50 or $100 you gave goes towards my child care, my set up time, and the loss of business for that day if it's missed. Paper Crane Studios also reserves the right to alter the session date or time in the event of illness or personal emergencies, if this is the case, you wont have to pay a new deposit and will be credited an extra free image. Because of the nature of the business, any other fee paid to Paper Crane Studios is non-refundable.
Your safety very important, so I ask that you are cautious of wires, hot lights or heavy equipment and follow any safety instructions given by me. It is important to keep any mobile child whom accompanies you, under control and out of harms way. This is your responsibility. My studio is equipped with expensive equipment, props, costumes and accessories. Studio damages by any child or client are expected to be paid by the client. A parent must be within arms reach of their child at all times. Failure to do so may result in the injury of your child or damage to my equipment. That being said, I am not responsible for any injuries or damages that occur during your session.
Sessions are for immediate family only so the focus is completely on you and your little ones. If you are wanting extended family, friends or family reunion photos please contact me with a list/number of family members. A custom package will be created depending on what you and your family require.
Paper Crane Studios reserves the right to use your images and/or video clips for any purpose which may include, but is not limited to, advertising, marketing, promotion and publishing to blogs, websites, contests and print. All images and videos are copyrighted by Paper Crane Studios. Editing, cropping, altering or printing your images (Using another supplier without a print release) is strictly prohibited. Images are for personal use only and cannot be used by you for anything either then personal albums, home decoration, prints, or your social media pages. Any issues regarding privacy must be discussed prior to your session.
Unless you have received or paid for a print release, you do not have the right to print, copy or screenshot the images from your session. Paper Crane Studios provides all the prints and products, please request to see a detailed price list & inquire about all policies prior to your session. The breaking of these terms will result in the loss of your rights to your files without reimbursement. Digital files must not be altered or "edited" in any way. Please request any changes to your images to be done by Paper Crane Studios. To ensure the highest printing quality, it is best to print through Paper Crane Studios, especially if you plan on ordering a print or canvas larger than 16x20.
There is a maximum of 5 extra edited images per session. These extra images may be included in your album for you to choose from. Additional edited images are $25 or all 5 for $100. To view a batch of unedited images to select for from (after you have finalized your album), there is a $40 fee. Unedited images are only kept for 1 week after your album is released. After that period of time, I am unable to access them. Edited images are kept for 6 months, in which time the final images should be downloaded and backed up by the client so files do not get lost. CDs & USBs are available for purchase as an alternative backup solution for clients. This purchase option is available within the 6 months your album is active.
Poses & "Pinterest" shots are not guaranteed as no two photographers are the same. I welcome you to share Pinterest photos with me for inspiration, but please hire me based on my style of edits, compositions, props and locations that are showcased in my profile. Due to the nature of working with children, specific shots can not be guerenteed.
By hiring Paper Crane Studios, you agree to these terms.
