• Photography Session Agreement

    HAAS Studio
  • A. Your Session Fee

    You, the Client, agree to pay photographer 50% of the session fee at the time of booking. This retainer fee is non-refundable and is required in order to secure your appointment date and time. This fee covers the time and talent of the photographer, select editing of images, as determined by the photographer, and an in person viewing session of your photo shoot within 10 days of your session. Digital Images for social media with limited re-print rights are available for purchase. All edited images are lightly retouched for color balance and a clean natural look. Additional fees are required for Retouching and Custom Wall Prints.

    B. Location Permits & Fees

    If there are any required permits/fees associated with the location the client has chosen for their session, you, the client, will be responsible for those fees. The photographer will not guarantee or arrange payment on any location. Creative fee covers travel within 30 miles of the photographer's studio in Citurs Heights, CA. Any location outside of these limits will be subject to an additional charge of $ 53.5 cents per mile as part of the agreement.

    C. Rescheduling

    If an illness or situation prevents a photo session from taking place, client may reschedule their session at least 72 hours prior to their shoot without penalty. Client may reschedule their session one time only within 21 days of the originally scheduled session date pending photographer's availability. Should client fail to give 72 hours notice, or decide to completely cancel the shoot, session fee is forfeit and will not be refunded. Photographer reserves the right to reschedule due to illness, weather, equipment malfunction, or other circumstances beyond their control.

    D. Re-shoots / Refunds

    Re-shoots are determined at the sole discretion of the photographer. Re-shoots and refunds will not be given for client's choices of clothing, make-up, hair or weather related issues, or by not following the recommendations of the photographer. In the case of an unforseen life event that prevents client's photo session from taking place on the originally scheduled shoot date the 50% retainer fee and the balance of client's session fee will be made applicable toward any future session, but no refunds will be given after payment is made in full.

    E. Archive

    Six (6) months after client's session date, all images 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 any digital files due to circumstances beyond photographer’s control.

    F. Payment

    The balance of clients session fee is due and payable in full five (5) business days prior the scheduled shoot date. If payment is not received as scheduled your session date may be re-booked at the photographer's discretion. Photographer is under no obligation to arrive at any session that has not been paid for in full on the scheduled payment date.

    G. Damage

    Photographer is not responsible for any damage of portraits after delivery to client, including damage caused during transit by US mail, UPS or contracted Courier Service. If a custom print is damaged in transit due to no fault of the client immediately take a photo of the damage and send it to the photographer via email, tear the print in half and ship it to the photographer for a replacement print. Client assumes all responsibility for the safety of all portraits upon receipt.

  • H. Model Release

    I hereby give to Juliet Haas the absolute and irrevocable right and permission with respect to the photographs that he/she has taken of myself and/or my minor child in which he/she may be included with others:

    a) To copyright the same in the photographer’s name or any other name that he/she may select;

    b) To use, re-use, publish and re-publish the same in whole or in part, separately or in conjunction with other photographs, 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 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.

    I. Liability

    Photographer is not responsible for any injuries inflicted upon any participating parties. 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

    Juliet Haas retains all copyrights to all images created during client’s session. 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 express written permission. It is illegal to copy, scan, download, print, share, alter, or otherwise steal any image created by HAAS Studio 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 that reflect you and your family, while keeping in line with my artistic vision and creativity. I know you will want to share them and I include a sneak-peek for that very reason. 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. 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.

    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 photographer, 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 modifications and time to relax before session begins.

    *Please do not bring any person/s or children not being photographed to the session. If client's minor child is being photographed client may observe quietly off set if the child has requested client's presence. Most young adults feel more at ease in front of the camera with their parent or guardian dropping them off and returning for them after their session.

    *Arrive to your session clean and groomed and with fresh clothing that is pressed unless you have hired a hair and makeup artist and/or stylist who will work with you during your session.

    *Please arrive having eaten a light, healthy meal and well hydrated. No smoking is allowed on set during your session.
