This template contract is perfect for photographers who put together mini sessions at specific times during the year (such as during the fall or holiday seasons). Mini sessions are abbreviated portrait experiences that usually last around 20-30 minutes, include fewer images than a regular session (with the option to upsell additional images), and are usually discounted.

This Contract Covers Situations Like

  - Venue limitations (if you were to hold sessions at a private tree farm or private studio rental space),
  - Non-refundable full reservation fee,
  - What happens if a family is late to a session (and interrupts the schedule of your day),
  - Timeframe for post-processing,
  - When clients can expect delivery of their online gallery,
  - Transferring a session to another family if the client is unable to make it,
  - No rescheduling or transferability to another date,
  - Selling additional images beyond those included in the package fee,
  - Last-minute changes to the contract,
  - And so much more!

This contract was great!

Although the mini sessions I bought this for have not yet occurred, this contract helped me feel SO CONFIDENT in launching them. I sometimes struggle to communicate hard boundaries and with mini sessions they are absolutely needed. This contract not only helped me set those boundaries better, but it allowed me to have peace of mind for all of my future mini session days.

Exactly what I needed!

This contract was exactly what I needed for my annual holiday mini sessions! Super helpful to have the language specific to things that only happen for minis! The Legal Paige has been a HUGE help for my biz.
