Please include age of children and tell me a little bit about everyone:
MODEL RELEASE: First...what is a model release and why am I asking for one? A model release gives me the ability to share your images in my marketing materials. Chances are, when you decided to book a session with me, you had looked at my website, blog, Instagram, etc. and saw lots and lots of photos of previous clients of mine. Sharing client images helps me connect with new, awesome clients like yourself. Sharing is caring. ;) *
Now the legal stuff...
I grant Denise Button Photography permission to display my family and my child(ren)’s photos in both print and digital form for the purpose of marketing as deemed fit by the photographer. Photographs may be used for the purpose of publicity, advertising, editorial, web content, social media marketing or any other lawful purpose.
