Your session includes your images delievered via CD, which will be mailed or can be picked up in Decatur. If you are comfortable with your online skills and/or are familiar with Dropbox (a FREE file sharing website and mobile app), you can choose to have your pictures delieverd faster by requesting that option.
In addition to delivery of your photos via CD or online download, all sessions will include an online gallery of images hosted on my website. This gallery is available for sharing with your friends and for easily ordering high-quality prints using archival ink and paper!
Client Usage Rights/Copyrights:
The photographs produced by Meg Hamilton are protected by Federal Copyright Law (all rights reserved) and client must agree to contract terms to be granted Printing Rights for images. Images may not be cropped or color changed in any manner unless Meg Hamilton Photography grants permission. (Cropping for print ratio is understood to be acceptable. i.e. 4x6 & 5x7 will be slightly different when printed.
If you would like a photo turned black and white, I will be HAPPY to do that for you!)
Client reserves the right to print images using lab of client’s choice. Studio will provide list of commercial printers where quality products can be expected. Because of the nature of commercial labs, the photographer or studio cannot guarantee image quality. Client understands that color variations may occur if lab is not a calibrated printer. Client also understands that there are resolution limitations on all digital images, and that extremely large prints are better printed with professional labs.
USING PHOTOS ONLINE
You may share your photos on social media 2 ways. Either by posting directly, from a folder included with your files labeled “Web Sized Images” or by sharing your online gallery or individual images.
The “Web sized images” folder will contain images that have been watermarked, and expertly sized and sharpened for web use. Please do not crop out logo/watermark, and DO NOT USE FULL SIZE IMAGES ONLINE!! Full-size digital images are too large for email or use on social media (most files are 5+MB each!)
Commercial use of these photos is prohibited. These images are for personal use only, and may be reproduced for the purpose of sharing with friends and family.
In the event that these photos will be published, sold for profit, used within marketing materials the client must obtain written permission from and compensate studio prior to the release. Additional contracts will be needed at that time.

Client grants studio unrestricted usage rights and copyrights to use and publish photographs in any manner or medium. Client grants studio permission to use images taken within this session in sample albums, marketing materials, editorial, online web presences, including but not limited to, website, social networks, blog, etc. Images may also be used in photographic competitions and for publication in which case the client will release all profits from images.
