Belly and Beyond Contract - TheLawTog®

Belly and Beyond Contract

Belly and Beyond Contract

Capture the journey from maternity to baby's first year with our Belly and Beyond Contract. As every photographer knows, from the baby bump to the first taste of cake, the moments are magical yet often come with scheduling uncertainties and unforeseen cancelations.

Designed to safeguard your photography business, this contract addresses packages that encompass a range of sessions: maternity, newborn, sitting up, milestones at 3-6-9 months, and the celebratory first year. Note: birth photography isn't part of this bundle – for that, see our Birth Contract & Bundle.

Drafted by our legal team at TheLawTog®, the contracts have been meticulously vetted and validated by lawyers & photographers.

Please remember, this bundle is structured for multi-session packages, not individual sessions. If you're looking for single session contracts, we have specialized categories for your needs. Although we don't have a specific maternity-only contract, our General Portrait Contract serves as a versatile alternative.

  • retainer and payment schedules

  • included session types

  • product inclusions

  • order requirements

  • maternity schedule (recommended weeks of gestation and refund specifications)

  • newborn preparation (feeding, clothing, pacifiers, bottles etc.)

  • Why choose TheLawTog?

Headed by Rachel Brenke, TheLawTog is the only dedicated resource for photographers.  With practicing lawyers, business consultants, CPA, financial planners (and more!) you’ll get information with first-hand experience to help your photography business. 

  • Can I edit the contracts?

Yes! They come as .doc files so you can fill-in-the-blank, remove or add what you need. We provide options and headings to easily allow for editing.

  • Can I use these contracts if not in the US?

TheLawTog®’s contract forms are drafted on general American law-based contract principles and are applicable to many states.  Due to variations in law based on location and business policies, the contracts are editable and easily adaptable. If you are a photographer outside the US, the policies may be implemented for your business, but U.S. Federal Copyright laws and other legal theories may not apply.  For example, in the United States, unless otherwise contracted, the photographer retains copyright ownership of images. However, in other countries, the law may give the copyright ownership to the client and necessitate a provision for transfer.
