Please know that unless specifically written in to contract, photographers (in this case myself) always retain ownership and copyright of every photograph they capture, create, or produce. Hiring clients are paying exclusively for a license to utilize the photos from scheduled photography sessions, solely for marketing purposes. Often times my rates include the initial licensing fees for the hiring client. Additional details below.
