Senior Photography Contract

A client contract for senior photography sessions, plus a minor image release form.


If you are providing senior photography services, there are several unique circumstances that your contract must address. In most cases, the senior you are photographing will be a minor. Therefore, your client will be their parent or guardian, rather than the senior themselves.


You will need to require the presence of an adult during the session and, as a result, address issues of tardiness for both the senior and their accompanying adult.


If the senior wishes to submit one of your images to their yearbook, you should require information about submission deadlines and image specifications.


This contract covers you for all those situations and more!
