II. CANCELLATION
IN THE CASE OF CANCELLATION, WE WILL GLADLY RESCHEDULE YOUR SESSION IF NOTICE OF 24 HOURS IS GIVEN. IF NO REASONABLE NOTICE IS GIVEN OR YOU DO NOT SHOW UP FOR YOUR SCHEDULED SESSION, YOU FORFEIT YOUR ENTIRE RETAINER AND ANOTHER WILL BE REQUIRED TO RESCHEDULE. IF THE PHOTOGRAPHER IS UNABLE TO PERFORM TO THE GUIDELINES OF THIS CONTRACT DUE TO A FIRE OR OTHER CASUALTY, ACT OF GOD, ACT OF TERRORISM, OR OTHER CAUSE BEYOND CONTROL OF THE PARTIES, OR DUE TO A ILLNESS OF THE PHOTOGRAPHER, THEN ALL RETAINER FEES PAID BY THE CLIENT WILL BE RETURNED IN FULL. SWEET BLOOM PHOTOGRAPHY WILL NOT BE LIABLE FOR COSTS IN EXCESS OF THE AMOUNT THE CLIENT HAS PAID. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY WILL ALSO APPLY IN THE EVENT THAT NEGATIVES OR DIGITAL IMAGES ARE LOST THROUGH CAMERA MALFUNCTION, STOLEN, DAMAGED IN PROCESSING, LOST IN THE MAIL OR OTHERWISE DAMAGED OR LOST WITHOUT FAULT OF SWEET BLOOM PHOTOGRAPHY. PLEASE RESPECT THE PHOTOGRAPHER'S TIME BY SHOWING UP FOR YOUR SESSION ON TIME. IF YOU ARE MORE THAN 30 MINUTES LATE, THE PHOTOGRAPHER RESERVES THE RIGHT TO CANCEL THE SESSION AND A NEW SESSION RETAINER WILL BE REQUIRED TO RESCHEDULE.
III. VIEWING THE IMAGES
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WILL UNEDITED IMAGES BE RELEASED TO THE CLIENT. THERE NEEDS TO BE A LEVEL OF TRUST WITH THE PHOTOGRAPHER, AS AN ARTIST, TO USE HER EXPERIENCE TO CHOOSE THE BEST PHOTOS FOR YOUR FAMILY. IMAGES ARE CHOSEN BASED ON A VARIETY OF REASONS SUCH AS LIGHTING, FOCUS, COMPOSITION, PLEASING FACIAL EXPRESSIONS, ETC. THERE IS NO BENEFIT TO WITHHOLDING GREAT IMAGES - YOU WILL RECEIVE THE VERY BEST IMAGES FROM YOUR SESSION. IMAGES WILL BE POSTED TO AN ONLINE GALLERY FOR ORDERING WITHIN 3 WEEKS FOLLOWING YOUR SESSION DATE. THE ONLINE GALLERY WILL BE ACTIVE FOR 10 DAYS - AN ORDER MUST BE PLACED WITHIN THIS TIME FRAME. A $25 RE-HOST FEE WILL BE REQUIRED TO REACTIVATE YOUR GALLERY, IF NEEDED. ONCE DIGITAL IMAGES HAVE BEEN DELIVERED, IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CLIENT TO BACKUP THE IMAGE FILES IN CASE OF DATA LOSS, COMPUTER CRASH, ETC. ADDITIONAL EDITS (IF REQUESTED) ARE AVAILABLE FOR A FEE, WHICH CAN BE DISCUSSED IF THE SITUATION ARISES.
IV. COPYRIGHT
ALL IMAGES TAKEN AT YOUR SESSION ARE PROTECTED BY FEDERAL COPYRIGHT LAW. SWEET BLOOM PHOTOGRAPHY WISHES TO HAVE ARTISTIC CONTROL OVER THE FINAL LOOK OF THE CLIENT’S IMAGES. SCANNED OR REPRODUCED IMAGES ARE BOTH ILLEGAL AND A DEGRADATION OF THE ORIGINAL IMAGE QUALITY.
V. TRUTH IN PHOTOGRAPHY CLAUSE
CLIENT AGREES THEY ARE HIRING SWEET BLOOM PHOTOGRAPHY FOR ITS ARTISTIC VISION AND ACCEPTS DECISIONS IN REGARDS TO DEPTH OF FIELD, EXPOSURE, COLOR CORRECTION, OR ANY OTHER SUBJECTIVE ASPECT OF THE WORK CREATED. ACCORDINGLY, THE CLIENT ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE PHOTOS WILL NOT BE SUBJECT TO REJECTION OR UNREASONABLE EDITS ON THE BASIS OF TASTE OR AESTHETIC CRITERIA.
