A must-have for your legally legit toolkit!

I have invested in many TLP templates over the years, and this one has been invaluable as I made the transition to IPS! It does a great job of outlining the process for my clients and explaining what is/ is not included in their session. If you're a photographer using an IPS model, this template is a must-have for your legally legit toolkit! :)

Ruby Sandoval
Different, but thorough

The language on this contract felt very different to all of the other TLP contracts I have. Other than that, the contract is thorough and simple enough to understand.
