Melissa Zimmer Photography has the right to use and publish images and photographs taken during your photography session to further promote its service, including portfolio, website, display, advertisement, and editorial use. If you wish to keep your images private, please discuss your concerns with the photographer prior to your session.
Clients are permitted to share their purchased images on social media at their own discretion. Images specifically re-sized and modified for web sharing will be provided for this purpose.

In such events, the Client will be fully reimbursed or is permitted to reschedule without penalty.
The Photographer is not responsible for any injury to the Client or Client's photographic party. Clients will be responsible for their children and themselves and release the Photographer from any claims.
