The Big Shots Photography by Marla, LLC Session Agreement is put into place so you know exactly what a session with me entails and to ensure that I am able to deliver on your expectations. Please read all information carefully and then provide your digital signature. Please print out and sign a copy to bring with you to your session. If you have any questions, please let me know before the session. Thanks!


  1. The Session fee reserves your session date. It is non-refundable.
  2. Session fees are non-refundable and must be paid in full on or before your session date.
  3. Travel up to 60 miles round-trip from 45242 is included. Time and travel above this will be extra.
  4. Because it can be distracting (especially to small children) and prevents me from being able to do my job effectively, other cameras are not allowed at the photo session.
  5. I cannot hold another session for you until ordering is completed on all previous sessions.


  1. Requests for rescheduling are granted only at my discretion. If someone becomes ill, please call as soon as possible to reschedule. I maintain the right to reschedule if needed due to inclement weather, illness, emergency, etc.
  2. Unless there is an emergency situation or bad weather, please make every effort to keep your session date/time during the peak holiday season. If you have to reschedule a session originally set to be held anytime between Sept. 1 through Dec. 15, please let me know as soon as possible since that is a very busy time of the year.
  3. No shows – If I show up to your session and you are more than 1-hr late or do not show at all, the Reservation Fee is forfeited. If you wish to reschedule your session after this, you will need to pay the Session Fee again (with exceptions made for emergencies).
  4. If you are not satisfied with your session, I will re-shoot another for you (at my discretion). A re-shoot requires that we delete ALL of the images from the first session and shoot an entirely new session with an entirely new image set.


  1. At your photo session or soon after, we will set the date for an ordering session where you will view your images and place your order.
  2. Creative privilege – there are times when an image needs a certain crop or a particular treatment. I will do my best to match your tastes, but I need to have the freedom to decide how to make an image look its absolute best.
  3. I cannot begin design work or processing orders until payment is made.
  4. Please be prepared to place your order during ordering session. This helps prevent backlogging for other clients and to assure your order will stay in the queue.
  5. I include extensive retouching and image enhancement to the images as part of the session fee. Additional retouching or changes in the crop, coloring, etc. are billed at my discretion with your approval.
  7. If you purchase a CD of high-resolution images, I provide detailed printing instructions with your CD. Your images will be cropped and colored how I believe they will print the best. Some images (particularly those shot in low light) may have visible digital noise when enlarged too much. This is normal, but may not be aesthetic. In addition, if you crop an image in too tightly, you will lose resolution and may cause it to be pixilated when enlarged. I will give detailed, personalized instructions when you receive your CD. To ensure the best print quality, try to avoid altering your images before printing. If in doubt, just ask me. I am not responsible for printing errors or for quality of prints or products not printed directly by me.


  1. If you purchase items that require design work (collages, books, storyboards), I will consult you first to get your input on the images, colors, text, etc. for the design. Try to be as specific as possible.  I base my design work off of your requests. Once the input is given, charges apply regardless if the final product is purchased.
  2. Once you approve a design, any additional changes will be at your cost.


  1. Checks returned by the bank for any reason will be charged a $25.00 service charge and sessions/orders will be cancelled if they are not paid in full within three days of notification.
  2. Big Shots Photography by Marla, LLC retains copyrights on all images (even those purchased on CD). With the signed model release, Big Shots Photography, LLC reserves the right to use the images and/or reproductions for display, publication, or other purposes. Under no circumstances can a client use images for commercial purposes, profit, or photographic competition or display.
  3. Please do not copy images you have not purchased. Copying, printing, or scanning images from my website, the blog, or from other materials is considered stealing, regardless of the intent for use.
  4. Credits and special offers are non-transferable and are not redeemable for cash.
