Newborn Portrait Photography Contract

Hi I wonder if anyone could help me please? I generally photograph children and family's on-location, and have done a few newborn sessions for friends.

I have been asked if I would consider a newborn and a baby session, close to home (via facebook connections).

I can give them my current contract, but I would really like to produce an actual Newborn/Baby one.

Do you have any advise on what I should I include or where I can find a template specifically for Newborns, that I can personalise.

Thank you so much
Can I add it or should I copy and paste? I’d actually appreciate any recommended changes needed to that, I personalised a template for that one?


I hereby give permission to Clair Huntley - to use my name and photographic likeness in all forms and media for advertising, exposition displays, trade, and any other lawful purposes. I understand that once I receive images from the session I can use them as I see fit (Facebook etc).
