Client registration and contract

Please read the below information, also fill in your information at the bottom and submit this form in order to confirm your reservation with me and agree to all my clauses. No down payment is required and you may cancel, or move to another available date, at any time, as long as I have availability.


By law, Melissa Shanley Photography owns the copyrights to all the pictures taken throughout their life and 25 years after. This means that you will need a print release to have your pictures printed/edited for any purpose. You will automatically receive a print release when you download pictures from the gallery Melissa will supply. Please know that you are legally obligated to get my written permission to display/reproduce, edit or prepare derivative works based on my photography and distribute copies to the public (by sale, rental, lease, or lending).

Portrait Fee

Portrait fee of $100 includes the photo session and 15+ fully edited high resolution images, which are hand-picked by me. Sessions will take place in my garage at my address - 14370 Lakeview Ln in Broomfield. I will create a winter backdrop. Payment is due at the photo session (check, cash or Venmo). All edited high resolution images will be delivered via a downloadable/shareable online gallery.


You may download/share/print all your photos. Your gallery will be complete within 1 week of your shoot. I will handpick your images and edit these based on my artistic vision. I reserve the right to edit and release only those deemed creditable as professional in quality and within my artistic standards. The gallery allows for high resolution downloads of your photos, which you are free to share and print where ever, and as many as you prefer. You will have an added print option in your gallery to order prints directly at a professional printer. I would recommend this printer for best quality, but it's only there for your convenience.
