Belly and Beyond Contract
Belly and Beyond Contract
This contract is to cover packages that include maternity and subsequent sessions (such as newborn, 3 month, 6 month, and first year sessions.)
From the baby bump to the 1st birthday cake, the picture-perfect moments are seemingly endless. But with these precious moments come unpredictable schedules and at times, canceled shoots.
Whether you're starting out, shooting for free, or an experienced professional, the complexities can be intimidating and stressful!
That's why we created the Belly and Beyond Contract Bundle. It is extremely important to protect your business with clear and comprehensive photography contracts.
This bundle covers photography packages including any combination of the following sessions: maternity, newborn, sitting up, 3-6-9 months, and one year. *This does not include birth (view our Birth Bundle).
Our Belly and Beyond Contract is tailored to photographers 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.
NOTE: This contract is appropriate for multiple sessions (as a collection), not one-off sessions. If you need a single session contract, check out our niche categories. While we do not offer a maternity category, our General Portrait Contract is a great option.
Includes legal must-haves:
retainer and payment schedules
included session types
maternity schedule (recommended weeks of gestation and refund specifications)
newborn preparation (feeding, clothing, pacifiers, bottles etc.)
rescheduling and cancellation
incorporation of Photographer's standard price list
Note: Model release is not included to allow your clients the option to waive it. Pick one up here!
Not only do our photography contracts provide legal protection, they position you as a credible business owner. Clients will respect your clear rules, detailed expectations, and you!
As an affordable way to protect your business, our lawyer-drafted, photographer-approved contracts are a must-have investment for your long-term success.

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.
