Terms and Conditions


1. No part of any order will be delivered until the balance is paid in full.

2. No personal cameras or cellphone cameras may be used in the photography studio.

3. If clients arrive late to the session, the photographer has no obligation to continue past the planned end time of the session as scheduled.  Sessions must begin and end on time.

4. The Studio/Photographer reserves the right to use images created under this contract

for advertising, display, publication, or other purposes. The client signing this contract

warrants that he/she has actual authority to agree to the use of the likeness of all

persons included in the portrait and shall indemnify and defend the Studio/Photographer in the event of litigation arising out of such use. Clients will receive a Photographer's Release for unlimited personal use of digital images. Digital files and any other work product remain the exclusive property of Maryann Newman Photography LLC.

5. Client understands that we will photograph children as they present themselves, making every effort to capture their best side. If children are uncooperative or are unwilling to behave in the manner that will produce the images their parents expected we will still proceed with the session using various tactics to work around their noncompliance as much as possible.  This is usually sufficient to produce an acceptable result but we may be unable to capture precisely the quality or number of images parents expected.  In any case, fees for the session as scheduled are still due in full and refunds will not be given based on noncompliance issues as they are out of the photographer’s control.

4. If we cannot perform this contract due to fire or other casualty, strike, act of God, or other cause beyond the control of the parties, or due to photographer’s illness or emergency, then the photographer shall return the deposit if any to Client but shall have no further liability with respect to the Contract. This limitation on liability shall also apply in the event that photographic materials are damaged in processing, lost through camera or media malfunction, lost in the mail, or otherwise lost or damaged without fault on the part of the photographer. In the event that the

Studio/Photographer fails to perform for any other reason, the Studio/Photographer shall not be liable for any amount in excess of the retail value of the Client’s order.

7. Client is aware that prints vary in quality based on the choice of printer. Maryann Newman Photography uses a lab that produces professional quality prints with a satisfaction guarantee. We cannot be responsible for the quality of prints made by mass market labs and we recommend that clients never use chain store or pharmacy photo printers.

8. The charges in the Contract are based on the Studio/Photographer’s Price

List at time of booking, and any specials or discounts are exclusive to this session.

9. NOTICE OF COPYRIGHT: It is ILLEGAL to copy or reproduce these photographs

without the permission of Maryann Newman Photography LLC.


I (we) understand this contract, including terms and conditions, and agree to be bound by them.
