There’s nothing quite so fulfilling as capturing sweet memories in your clients’ lives. Yearly family photos, anniversary sessions, and engagements make up a big portion of your work and you love it…until the sticky situations arise. Every photographer knows what it's like to have clients not pay on time, arrive late just as the sun starts to set, request RAW files (and unlimited edits), or demand you upload their photos 3 years later…

Sometimes it feels like the problems are endless. But it doesn't have to be that way!

The Legal Paige created the Family + Couples Contract to ensure you are covered in all the less-than-ideal situations that come along with documenting people’s lives. Instantly set boundaries with your clients, avoid worst-case-scenarios, and run a more legally legit business with this expert drafted, copy-and-paste template.

This contract covers situations like

   - Clients asking to reschedule the session,
   - Requests for additional edits and questioning of your artistic discretion,
   - Ensuring you have a proper model release for all subjects in the photos,
   - Clients not paying on time,
   - Bad weather on the planned session date,
   - Timeframe for when clients can expect to receive their online gallery,
   - Clients asking for a refund for a canceled session or dislike with the photos,
   - Travel costs,
   - Last minute changes to the contract,
   - And so much more!

DISCLAIMER: By purchasing a template contract and/or document from The Legal Paige, LLC, you are not given access to Paige and no attorney-client relationship is created.

Our products are easy-to-use and have highlighted, editable sections with commentary on what to amend according to your business practices and local state laws. You may modify the document on your own or find an attorney in your state to help you.

Some template documents are available in Canada, have been reviewed by a Canadian lawyer, and are drafted using general Canadian common law contract principles (not for use in Quebec due to civil law jurisdiction).

I knew my current contract wasn’t strong enough but I didn’t realize just how weak it was until I got this bad boy contract. I’ve never felt so secure!

Great Necessary Clauses

There are so many specific clauses that absolutely are non-negotiable to have in your Family or Couples Contract that TLP includes:
- Image Processing, Retouching, & Edits Clause
- Poses & Selection of Delivered Images Clause
- Model Release Clause

Don't shoot a session without setting the expectations and standard of how you run your business without these!
It will save you the headache later!!
