This session is to cover packages that include maternity and subsequent sessions (such as newborn, 3 month, 6 month and first year sessions). When you have it all under one contract, you need to make sure all provisions for each type are there as well as a cohesive collection contract!
Scroll down for specific provision information!
Whether you’re starting out, shooting for free, or an experienced professional, the complexities can be intimidating and stressful!
That’s why we created the Belly and Beyond Contract Bundle. It is extremely important to protect your business with clear and comprehensive photography contracts.
This bundle covers photography packages including any combination of the following sessions: maternity, newborn, sitting up, 3-6-9 months, and one year. *This does not include birth (view our Birth Bundle).
Our Belly and Beyond Contract is tailored to photographers just like you. Our team of lawyers and photographers at TheLawTog® develop, review, and approve every contract.
We think this is a pretty awesome combo—legal expertise and photographer know-how.
NOTE: This contract is appropriate for multiple sessions (as a collection), not one-off sessions. If you need a single session contract, check out our niche categories. While we do not offer a maternity category, our General Portrait Contract is a great option.
This Belly and Beyond Contract includes the following provisions: retainer and payment schedules, included session types, product inclusions, order requirements, maternity schedule (recommended weeks of gestation and refund specifications), newborn preparation (feeding, clothing, pacifiers, bottles etc.), environmental control, ordering, completion, rescheduling and cancellation, proofing, artistic rights, travel fees, incorporation of Photographer’s standard price list, substitute photographer, copyrights, and legal miscellany.
Note: Model release is not included to allow your clients the option to waive it. Pick one up here!
Not only do our photography contracts provide legal protection, they position you as a credible business owner. Clients will respect your clear rules, detailed expectations, and you!
As an affordable way to protect your business, our lawyer-drafted, photographer-approved contracts are a must-have investment for your long-term success.
All contracts come as Microsoft Word document files.
You know you need to protect your business – because, well, you value it right?

Here is a cliff notes for you:
I am a lawyer, but I’m not your lawyer!
While TheLawTog strives to keep its legal contract templates current, accurate and up-to-date, TheLawTog cannot guarantee that all the information available at thelawtog.com (including related domains and subdomains) (the “Sites’), or information provided in templates and products obtained from TheLawTog, is current at all times or in all areas. TheLawTog provides general documents we hope will be helpful to those of you who have chosen to complete your own legal documents. While TheLawTog makes an effort to keep our legal documents current and updated, because the law is constantly changing and varies among jurisdictions, TheLawTog can in no way guarantee the effectiveness of its services, products or any materials in any particular jurisdiction. Therefore, in all cases, especially those that are very particular or complex in nature, TheLawTog encourages you to seek the advice of a licensed attorney for your jurisdiction.
Nothing contained in the Sites or available through the products, materials and services of TheLawTog is intended to form an attorney-client relationship. Your interaction with TheLawTog in any capacity does not form such a relationship. TheLawTog’s performance of services related to those offered through the Sites, information provided on the Sites, and products sold through the Sites likewise does not create an attorney-client relationship in any particular circumstance.
In addition, from time to time, TheLawTog may introduce you to licensed attorneys through various referral methods. However, at no time is an attorney-client relationship fostered or created with TheLawTog due to these complimentary services, for which TheLawTog does not take any fee or engage in any profit-sharing. Whether or not you choose to pursue such referral or related legal services is entirely your decision and is provided by TheLawTog only as a courtesy.
Finally, The Law Tog does not intend to create any attorney-client relationship and your use of TheLawTog’s Sites, templates and other services, products and resources does not create an attorney-client relationship.
