TheLawTog’s General Portrait contracts are great for those who photograph multiple types of photography, family, maternity, children, etc.
This product includes:
- General Portrait Contract
- General Model Release
- Limited Model Release
- Print Release
Portrait Contract - This portrait agreement covers all of the pertinent areas any photography business owner should have to cover themselves legally for a portrait photography session. Includes provisions such as: coverage, payment schedule, completion schedule, rescheduling/cancellation, proofing, artistic rights, etc.
The download includes two model releases
#1 General Release includes language covering adults and minors
#2 Limited Release includes options to allow the client limit the use of their images by the photographer
Print Release - The print release form is readily customizable to be included with digital file orders to outline the dos and don'ts that the client can do with your art. This gives the client the permission to print only – does not give permissions for commercial or other uses. This does reemphasize the copyright laws.

As a team of lawyers and photographers, we know what it's like.
And we don't want fear of the unknown keeping you up at night.
That's why we offer affordable photographer contracts and education tailored to professionals 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.
If you're afraid of client disputes and potential liability, you're not alone. Business conflict is time-consuming, expensive, and harmful. Which makes it essential to protect your work.
Protecting your business with clear and comprehensive contracts is non-negotiable. Whether you're starting out, shooting for free, or an experienced professional, legal protection is extremely important.
Every contract template we provide is easy to edit and should be tailored to reflect business policies and laws in your state.
While you can obtain a contract through a non-photographer lawyer, it may not be the best choice. Since our templates were created by—and for—photographers, they are typically more comprehensive. And cool news, they can save you money.
Lawyer-drafted. Photographer approved.
No recurring fees - just one time payment.
