A model release is a legal release form signed by the subject and/or guardians of a minor being photographed. It’s purpose is to grant permission to the photographer to publish, sell, or distribute the image in one form or another, depending on the circumstances of the photoshoot. In our case, this model release form grants the photographer (that’s me!) permission to publish the images we take together on my website, social media, printed publications, or other marketing materials.
I ask all of my clients to sign this release so that I may showcase your beautiful photographs. That being said, I am also committed to giving my clients full transparency about where their images will appear. In the instance that the photographs from your session are to be published in a commercial publication or a highly visible blog, I will definitely let you know ahead of time! If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
