In the event of an illness or need to reschedule please do so as soon as possible. Scheduling fills a few weeks in advance. Claire Ryser maintains the right to reschedule if needed due to severe inclement weather, severe illness, emergency, etc. and will work with the client to find an agreeable time.

 The client is responsible for covering additional fees and costs related to location choice (admission fees, parking, etc.). Travel up to 35 miles from 64105 is included. There is an additional $2 per mile beyond the 35-mile radius. Time and travel above this will be invoiced (contact me for pricing).


 Session or Design work will begin and orders will be placed once payment has been made in full.

 Negatives, digital files and previews remain the property of Claire Ryser. The client will be given a copyright consent document allowing them to print with third-parties or use the images for personal use. A client cannot use these images for profit, commercial endeavors, advertising display, or in competitions without written permission from Claire Ryser. NOTICE OF COPYRIGHT: It is ILLEGAL to redistribute these photographs for profit. 5. LIABILITY 
 Client is aware that the quality of the end result print of the digital files delivered is not under the control of the photographer if client uses a lab, photo kiosk, etc. other than Claire Ryser to make personal prints. Color and quality from 3rd party sources cannot be guaranteed. 

If the photographer cannot fulfill this Contract due to fire or other casualty, strike, act of God, or other cause beyond the control of the parties, or due to the Photographer’s illness or emergency, then the photographer shall return any deposit or sitting fee, or undelivered product fees to the Client but shall have no further liability with respect to the contract. This limitation on liability shall also apply in the event that photographic materials are damaged in processing, lost through camera or media malfunction, lost in the mail, or otherwise lost or damaged without fault on the part of the photographer. In the event the photographer fails to perform for any other reason, the photographer shall not be liable for any amount in excess of the retail value of the client’s order, of which the client will be issued a full refund. 7. EDITING All images taken at the photo session will be edited and enhanced for color, skin tone, contrast, brightness, exposure, white balance, basic distracting element removal, and proper cropping. These edited photos will be presented as “proofs” or “digital files” to the client. 8. All prints, albums, and other tangible product ordered through Claire Ryser will have additional editing such as extensive blemish removal, body adjustments or enhancements, or other by-hand adjustments as requested by the client. This is included in the cost of the products ordered. If the client should wish to purchase a digital file with by-hand retouching, please inquire about the specifics of your requested retouching for a price quote.
 9. MODEL CONSENT AND RELEASE The client grants that Claire Ryser may use some images taken at the session for promotion of business or services. The right to approve for public use is granted to the client, and names of minors will not be publicized in the photos. 10. QUALITY AND ARTISTIC LICENSE Claire Ryser will be the sole judge and hold artistic license to deem a photograph a high quality and good photograph. If the photo is of a good quality, it will be included in the client’s gallery. The client acknowledges that they have seen images on her blog, social media accounts, and website and feel comfortable with her shooting style.

Check the "I Agree" box for your session type. Some items will not apply to every session type. For those, check "N/A". For Example, if you're only doing a Newborn Session, you'll not need to check "I Agree" under the Maternity Session agreement.
Maternity sessions are typically done between 32-37 weeks depending on the size of your belly and how comfortable you are. 
All outdoor sessions are done 1-2 hours before sunset as this is the best most flattering light and time of day.
A typical newborn session lasts 2-3 hours In order to guarantee the client several quality images. Certain poses are not guaranteed depending on the sleepiness and cooperation of the newborn. The client understands forcing a child into an unsafe pose that the child is not naturally conforming to could result in the harm of the child and the photographer will refuse to do so. The photographer will do their best to achieve as many poses as possible during the session. A pacifier is requested for soothing during posing and will only be used if necessary and not for more than a couple minutes at a time. 
Claire Ryser can provide several neutral colored props, such as light-colored blankets of various texture, stretchy wraps for a newborn, and baskets/boxes of various material for your in-home or studio newborn session. If there is something else you wish to incorporate into the session please feel free to have it ready at the time of the session and we'll do our best to work it in.
The photographer is not responsible for a fussy non cooperative newborn. Newborns run on their own schedule, which is why the session MAY take up to 3 hrs. Feeding and soothing breaks will be allowed and are necessary for a smooth session sometimes. In the rare event that the newborn is overly fussy and completely non cooperative, the session will be rescheduled at the discretion of the photographer. 
Children are precious! They are likely just as nervous about the photoshoot as mom/dad and can easily be overwhelmed with too many adults giving them direction and requests. This is why I ask parent(s) / guardian(s) to select one person to speak at a time, and to do so calmly and in a fun way. I prefer to be the sole voice, but occasionally I will ask parent(s) to help hug, tickle, snuggle, and join in with me to get a laugh or giggle out of your sweet little ones! Sometimes, it does take a village! Some come prepared with treats, bribes, their favorite toy/song/you tube video on your phone! I'll get to know them and help acclimate them too, so we're sure to get some great shots!
