MELISSA WEICKER | MATERNITY SESSION FORM + AGREEMENT
please fill out and review the following form to reserve your session date - many thanks!
YOUR SUPER FANTASTIC FAMILY
Please read all information carefully. If you have any questions, please let Melissa know before the session. Thank you! 1) In order to hold your session date, partial payment of $300 or full payment of $750 is due at time of booking. If paying partial payment of $300, the remaining $450 must be paid in full at least one full day before your session takes place. Because of special pricing, $300 of the all inclusive session fee is considered a non-refundable retainer and non-transferable. If the client needs to cancel due to illness or other unforeseen circumstances, Melissa will gladly reschedule the session (up to 2 reschedules maximum); please notify Melissa at least 24 hours before your session if you must reschedule. If the weather isn't agreeable on the day of the session, we will reschedule to another date. If there is a chance of rain or snow in the forecast, Melissa will notify you a day or two before the session. Paying the $750 session fee secures current pricing on prints and products. Credits and pricing expire 30 days after the proofing gallery is posted. Digital files on USB are included. Other prints and products are sold separately. 2) Additional fees and costs related to location choice (admission fees, parking, etc.). is the responsibility of the client. 3) Other cameras are not permitted at the photo session as this can be distracting (especially to smaller children). 4) Within 2 weeks after the session, Melissa will post your proofs in a password protected gallery online. This gallery will be hosted for 3 days, so please be prepared to place your order in that time. There is a $25 charge to upload your gallery for an extra day. 5) Be sure to inspect your images very carefully in your gallery. Once images and products are ordered, all sales are final. 6) Melissa cannot begin design work or processing orders until payment is complete. 7) Please be prepared to place and pay for your order during the 3 day period when your gallery is posted. This is strictly to maintain a speedy workflow and to help prevent backlogging for other clients. There is a $100 minimum for re-orders & current pricing applies. 8) If you have a request for a small change to an image, please let Melissa know when you place your order. Melissa can address minor changes at no cost (fix blemishes), but more involved requests are billed at $25/hr. Melissa will let you know if there will be extra charges before work is begun. Once the requested changes are made, charges apply regardless if the final product is purchased. 9) If you purchase items that require design work, Melissa will consult you first to get your input on the images for the design. Additional changes will be billed at $25/hr. Again, Melissa will let you know if there are extra charges before work is begun. Once the requested changes are made, charges apply regardless if the final product is purchased. 10) Cheques returned by the bank for any reason will be charged a $25.00 service charge and sessions/orders will be cancelled if they are not paid in full within three days of notification. 11) Melissa Weicker retains copyrights of all images from your session. Under no circumstances can a client use the images for profit, commercial endeavors, in competitions or contests, or for professional display. 12) Credits, Gift Certificates and special offers are non-transferable and are not redeemable for cash. 13) A new session cannot be scheduled until ordering is complete on a past session. 14) ALL SALES ARE FINAL. -- A word about copyright -- All images taken at your session will be copyrighted by Melissa Weicker and are protected by Federal Copyright Law.
