If we've learned anything in the last few years it's that we never know what is around the next corner. 

5 Must Have Legal Tools for 2023

1. Essential & Ultimate Contract Bundles:

We have compiled your most needed legal tools into easy-to-use bundles. TheLawTog’s Essential Contract Bundles & Ultimate Contract Bundles include everything you need to successfully capture your photo sessions! We know it can be overwhelming to run your own photography business.

2. Legally Legit

3. Client Issue Bundle

Issues happen.  It's a fact of life!  Our Client Issue Bundle combines the templates you'll need to use when parties agree to cancel a contract or you're having issues with clients - such as lack of communication, non-payment and other potential issues. 

4. Website Terms Bundle:

One of the most overlooked aspects in a photographer's business is their website. The Website Terms Bundle helps to ensure that anyone using a website for their potential clients and existing clients is protected. It is especially important if visitors are:

    • submitting their information through contract forms
    • signing up for your email newsletter list
    • you're using pixels/tracking such as Facebook Pixels and Google Analytics.

Some states require the use of privacy policies – even if yours doesn’t, these documents are a great way to help set expectations and protect your photography business!


5. Sales Bundle:

Many photographers believe that once the service contract is signed that they can shoot their session, move on and life is peachy.  This is not true!  Your business needs multiple layers of protection and multiple contracts!  

The Sales Bundle is specifically created for protecting your photography business and clients during sales made after your session. 

Perfect for in-person sales consultation, along with Zoom and passive sales.
