As photography is so custom in nature, I use contracts for every session so that all expectations are made in writing.



As per Federal Copyright Law, the photographer retains copyright ownership to all images. By commissioning my services, you receive rights for personal use and display of your images with certain limitations.


(Artistic License)

You will be presented with images from your session that fit my professional and artistic standards. These will be made available in their edited and finished format, and original or rejected images will not be available.


(Travel Fees & Usage Fees)

A travel fee is required for locations beyond 25 miles outside of the Burlington Area. The travel fee will be $1 per mile and will be due along with the session fee. Other travel fees maybe incurred if traveling out of the state.



It is imperative that all participants arrive to the session at the scheduled time. In the event of tardiness, the session will be limited to the original end time and may result in fewer images captured or delivered.



Rescheduling may be necessary in the case of illness or inclement weather. A rescheduled date should take place within 2 weeks of the original session date, and be agreed upon in writing.


(Permits & Permission)

If a desired location requires a usage fee, permit, or special permission, this will be the responsibility of the client.


(Product Orders)

Your order total must be paid in full before any products can be provided. Product prices are valid for 30 days from the date of your session. A minimum order amount of $250 will be required. All product orders are final and may not be adjusted.


(Archiving and Image Retention)

Images remaining un-ordered beyond 3 months from your session date will be archived, and a fee of $50 will be required to view images and place your order. After one year from the session date, images are not guaranteed available for purchase. 

(Model Release)

A model release allows me to use images of you or your children for advertising and portfolio purposes. However, if for personal reasons you prefer your photos not be used in this manner, you have the choice of not signing the model release and I will honor your request for privacy.

(Digital Image Files & Print Releases)

Digital image files are available for purchase in high-resolution with a print release. Images will be provided in JPG file format, while RAW or original files will not be available. Only image files that have been purchased with a print release may be printed. Social media digital image files are for online sharing purposes only, and may not be printed, have the watermark removed, or be edited in any way. Prints and products are only guaranteed for quality if ordered through the photographer.


(Sales Tax)

Sales tax will be collected for all applicable orders. Sales tax will be in addition to the listed prices for sessions and/or products.


(Accepted Forms of Payment)

Cash, checks, credit card, and money orders are accepted. Non-sufficient funds or returned payments will be subject to an additional fee.
