Letter of Agreement for Birth Photography Session
I understand that it is my responsibility to keep Light the Way(LTW) informed throughout my pregnancy and if there are any changes after the prenatal visit.
I understand that the labor may not go as planned and that LTW will do their best to accommodate any changes that may happen. This includes if there is failure to provide
adequate notice of the baby's birth; an unexpected transport for a C-section; a dramatic change in the birth plan.
I understand that it is my responsibility to let LTW know when I am in labor, and when I would like them to come.
I understand that birth is an unpredictable, fluid event and LTW cannot guarantee any particular image.
I understand that I may not hire another birth photographer and that LTW is not responsible for missed shots due to family/friends/birth workers taking pictures.
I understand it may take LTW up to an hour to get to me from when I call them for photography.
I understand that if LTW is unable to be present due to illness, emergency, fire, casualty, strike, act of God or causes beyond the control of the Photographer a backup photographer will attended to fulfill the contract.
I understand that I can cancel this contract at any point but forfeit the $300 retainer. After 38 weeks, I understand that no refunds are given.
