Please fill this contract out to allow us to use your child's photos for modeling, advertising, social media and vendor usage. Please feel free to contact us at any time for any specific questions or concerns. As most of our sessions are during the day, most emails get answered in late evenings. We try our best to answer all emails within a 24-48 hour time period.
Parents/ Guardians will be responsible for the actions of their children at all times. Once Upon A Dream cannot be held liable for accidents that occur as a result of the parent or guardian not watching their child. In the case of newborns and small children, the parent(s) are many times asked to help be spotters, and need to be within reach of the child AT ALL TIMES to prevent falling, or any accident of any kind. The photographer will direct the parent as to where they need to be in order to get the best, and safest picture.
**Important!! Some props in the studio are very fragile, so PLEASE do not allow the children to play on ANY props unless instructed to do so for photo purposes only!
PLEASE READ! THIS IS IMPORTANT!! Please NO personal cameras or video cameras at the session. You have paid us to take your photos, so let us handle the photography! This includes any CELL PHONE cameras, video cameras, or tablets (or ipads) with photo or video taking capabilities. If a camera is present, or a photo is taken, we WILL have to request that the session conclude and that is a very awkward moment we would like to avoid. Cell phone pics taken during the session are not an accurate display of our work and should not be taken and/or posted.
Preview and sneak peek photos are sometimes provided on facebook. The more you share and comment, the more sneak peeks you get posted! Once Upon A Dream holds all copyrights to photos taken. This means you CANNOT alter the photos at all. This includes not being able to scan, copy, download to a mobile device or personal computer, Instagram, taking a picture of your lab prints, or screenshooting your photos in any way from the gallery or from the vendor's website or etsy site, as it is copyright infringment. It also means that no photos can be used in contests without the prior permission from Once Upon A Dream, or converted to any other color variations.
