Session Agreement

Please list names and ages.


We are pleased that you have selected Jacquilyn Avery Photography for your studio or on location photography services. Jacquilyn Avery Photography is honored to photograph you and your family in our unique artistic style. This letter sets forth the terms and conditions of our engagement.

• A non-refundable session fee of $350 for a newborn session, $250 for a family session or $150 for a little ones session plus any upgrades is due on the date that your session is first scheduled. JACQUILYN AVERY PHOTOGRAPHY SHALL HAVE THE RIGHT TO CANCEL YOUR SESSION DATE OR TO GIVE IT TO ANOTHER CLIENT IF IT DOES NOT RECEIVE THE SESSION FEE one week before YOUR SESSION IS SCHEDULED. The fee shall be good for services performed on the originally scheduled date. In the event that you need to re-schedule that date, pricing and our availability to provide services on such date will be reviewed. In the event of a cancellation, your session fee will be honored for one year. Jacquilyn Avery Photography makes no guarantee that it will be able to provide services or the pricing above for any re-scheduled session.

• Only the person being photographed may attend the session; provided, however, that in the case of children and infants, up to 2 parents may also attend. Parents attending sessions are kindly asked to adhere to any instructions from the photographer and to refrain from interfering with the photographer’s work. Personal assistants, nannies, caregivers, friends and siblings may not attend sessions without prior permission from the photographer. ABSOLUTELY NO PHOTOGRAPHIC, VIDEO, FILM, DIGITAL, TAPE, CASSETTE, OR RECORDING DEVICES OF ANY KIND ARE PERMITTED DURING A SESSION.

• Jacquilyn Avery Photography reserves the right to terminate any session due to any failure of the client to adhere to the requirements set forth in this Agreement or if the model(s) being photographed are unwilling to be photographed or if anyone in the session is behaving in a manner that the photographer deems inappropriate or inconsistent with the purposes of the session. In the event of any such termination, Jacquilyn Avery Photography may offer to schedule a new session in its sole discretion; provided, however, that it is under no obligation to do so. Under no circumstances will the session fee be refunded.

• Parties being photographed must be dressed, made up and prepared at the exact designated start time. Sessions will begin and end promptly as scheduled. Additional photographer and studio time may be purchased in half-hour increments for $75 per half-hour (photographer availability and schedule permitting). Photographer/Owner captures the “essence” of your children; the finer details (combed hair, clean faces, jewelry etc.) are the parents’ responsibility. Removing these items before the session will be much simpler and more cost effective for the client.

• Jacquilyn Avery Photography is not responsible or liable for any failure to provide any services due to any act of God, weather event, act of government or any other occurrence, act or event which is outside of Jacquilyn Avery Photography’s exclusive control. In addition, Jacquilyn Avery Photography shall not be responsible for equipment failure or the failure of any software or other computer or electronic medium which results in any damage to any proofs, negatives, prints or photos or which result in the inability to print or duplicate any of the foregoing.

• Jacquilyn Avery Photography’s liability for its provision of products and services hereunder shall be limited to the amounts paid to Jacquilyn Avery Photography hereunder.

• You agree to be responsible for any damage occurring to any of Jacquilyn Avery Photography’s equipment or property during or as a result of the event or the actions of any session attendees, or as a result of any condition or occurrence at an on-location session which results in damage, other than damage which results solely from Jacquilyn Avery Photography’s negligence.
