Maternity Photography Contract

A client contract for maternity photography sessions, plus an adult image release form.


What makes a maternity photography contract different from any other photography contract? It carefully and thoroughly addresses all the unique issues that can potentially arise with maternity clients.


What will you do if your client needs to postpone due to medical issues? How will you respond in the tragic event that your client suffers a miscarriage? Or what if your client goes into preterm labor and gives birth to their baby before your session date?


These are all very unique situations that you must plan and prepare for when offering maternity photography services.
