• Standard Portrait Session Contract

  • Session Fee/Scheduling/Rescheduling:

    Client’s session fee is due in full within ten days of signing this contract, or the date will not be held. Credit/Debit card payment will be requested through PayPal.

    Session fees hold your session date and are non-refundable. Up to two non- weather-related reschedules are permitted. However, Monson Photography does not guarantee availability for the same timeframe or day of the week as originally committed to. Upon the third rescheduling, a $25 reschedule fee will be issued. Clients who do not show up for a session and do not call at least two hours before the scheduled session time to cancel or postpone will not be rescheduled and the session fee will not be refunded.

  • Retouching:

    It is Monson Photography’s policy to not remove any permanent scars or birth marks unless directed to do so by the Client.

    "PROOF" images posted to Client galleries will NOT be edited, other than minor technical corrections if necessary. Monson Photography may perform Basic Portrait Editing (see below) on select images to demonstrate what purchased images will look like.

    Basic Portrait Editing (backdrop retouching, blemish/scratch retouching, teeth whitening, softening of the under eye area where necessary, contrast/sharpening and long stray hair removal) is included with any image the Client orders, whether electronic or print form. Editing of ordered images begins once payment is collected for the order.

    Extensive editing is available for purchase at a price of $25.00 per image at the Client’s request. This includes, but is not limited to: Braces removal, excessive tan line removal, and subtle face or body slimming.

  • Copyright/Digital images/Social Media:

    Scanning and printing of images or copying ("screen shot captures") images, including screen captures from the Monson Photography website or Facebook page is unlawful due to copyright protection. If a client has purchased digital images from Monson Photography, the client agrees to the reproduction terms outlined in this document.
