Contract

By condition of the purpose of portfolio building, in consideration of the engagement as a model of the minor named below, and for other good and valuable consideration herein acknowledged as received, upon the terms hereinafter stated, I hereby grant to Fairyography (Stylized Portraiture), and its proprietor Heather Lickliter Larkin (hereafter known as "Photographer"), their legal representatives and assigns, those for whom Photographer is acting, and those acting with their authority and permission, the irrevocable and unrestricted right and permission to use, re-use, publish, and re-publish photographic portraits or pictures of the minor or in which the minor may be included, in whole or in part, or composite or distorted in character or form, without restriction as to changes or alterations, in conjunction with the minor’s own or a fictitious name, or reproductions thereof in color or otherwise, made through any medium at their studios or elsewhere, and in any and all media now or hereafter known for illustration, promotion, art, editorial, advertising, trade, commercial or business use, rights-optioning, or any other purpose whatsoever. I also consent to the use of any printed matter in conjunction therewith.

Booking Policy:

A non-refundable retainer of the full session fee (or whichever session package you have chosen) for your session is due upon booking your appointment. This guarantees the time and date allotted for you. The retainer is not refundable. You may transfer it to another session date within 2 months of your original booking. Otherwise, you forfeit your retainer. If you do not show up for your scheduled session, your retainer is forfeit.


Cancellations:

If your child is feeling ill, please call to reschedule. We understand that sometimes, this happens. If you must cancel, please try to do so at least 48 hours before your session. If you are more than 30 minutes late to a session with no communication with your photographer, the session will be assumed canceled and your retainer will be forfeited.


Exclusive Photographer:

Please only bring the people that will be photographed to the session. Distracting the subjects with extra people to watch makes the session more difficult for everyone involved. Also, please do not bring your own camera, camcorder, or recording device to the session. Fairyography reserves the right to end a session if this policy is broken.


Ordering Appointments:

After your session, your ordering appointment will be held within 14 days. Please come prepared to view and purchase your prints at that time. Print prices remain guaranteed for 45 days after your session date, if you choose to order after those 45 days are passed then you'll be ordering at the current print prices.


Final Prints:

Your products will be ready for pick up approximately 4-6 weeks after we have received your order and payment. We will contact you by phone or email in order to set up a convenient time for you to pick up your order from the studio.
Portrait Care: Handle your portraits with extreme care. Damage incurred as a result of improper handling, framing or hanging is the responsibility of the client.


Sales are Final:

Due to the custom nature of each session, all sales are final; products purchased are not returnable.
Re-Shoots: Re-shoots are at the discretion of the photographer and are not given for regretful personal choices such as hair and clothing. Since the photographer also does not control the weather, if you choose to go ahead of a possibly rainy day and it does rain, a reschedule is up to the photographer.


Travel Fee:

There is a $1/mile round trip travel fee for locations 10 miles outside of the Athens GA area.


Payment Options:

Fairygraphy accepts cash, checks, and credit cards.


Personal Checks:

Checks returned by the bank, for any reason, will be charged a $30.00 service charge and all orders will be canceled if they are not paid in full within three days of notification.


Usage and model release:

Fairyography reserves the right to use the images taken at your session for display, publication, website, or any other marketing purposes. Negatives, files, proofs, and originals remain the property of Fairyography. You also give permission for the vendors Heather works with to use the images she gives them.


Archiving:

While we would never delete a client’s images once they have been proofed, we cannot guarantee that they will be retrievable after 6 months. All images are backed up, and stored off site to protect them, however, we never know when a server will fail or a CD will not be readable. Again, we will do everything in our power to maintain all images, but cannot guarantee them after 6 months.


Reprints:

All images from the viewing session are available for reorder at any time. There is a $100 minimum reorder amount. Print prices remain guaranteed for 45 days after your session date, if you choose to order after those 45 days are passed then you'll be ordering at the current print prices.


Waiver of Liability:

The Client expressly releases the Photographer, her employees and agents from all claims, damages, and liabilities that may result from accidents or incidents that may occur during the portrait session. This includes any injuries by animals.


Copyright:

Federal Law prohibits unauthorized reproduction of any artwork and is fineable up to $150,000. You may not scan, copy, reprint, post online or enter any image from Stylized Portraiture in a contest. We reserve the right the refuse service and terminate the photographer/client relationship if the client violates copyright.


Private property:

I understand that Heather sometimes receives permission to hold photography sessions at privately owned properties. I will not hold liable the owner or employee of any property used, the City of Athens, Georgia, the University of Georgia, or the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia for any and all personal injuries, damaging of equipment or personal belongings or any other loss or any indemnity while on location. I understand that my own permission to enter this property is for the photo session only and that I may not return without Heather or without prior permission from the owner or manager again. I further understand that permission for one session does not mean permission for all sessions and that the invitation to use the location may be rescinded at any time.


I hereby waive any right that I or the minor may have to inspect or approve the finished product or products or the advertising copy or printed matter that may be used in connection therewith or the use to which it may be applied. I hereby release, discharge, and agree to save harmless Photographer, her legal representatives or assigns, and all persons acting under her permission or authority or those for whom she is acting, from any liability by virtue of any blurring, distortion, alteration, optical illusion, or use in composite form, whether intentional or otherwise, that may occur or be produced in the taking of said picture or in any subsequent processing thereof, as well as any publication thereof, including without limitation any claims for libel or invasion of privacy.


I hereby warrant that I am of full age and have every right to contract for the minor in the above regard. I state further that I have read the above authorization, release, and agreement, prior to its execution, and that I am fully familiar with the contents thereof. This release shall be binding upon me and my heirs, legal representatives, and assigns.
