*Hey! If you're reading this right now it means we're about to book a session and make some rad photos. Yay! I'm inputing this message here to get this started on a friendly note, because what follows are a lot of very professional and legal-y sounding sentences that comprise the business end of this whole process. I know, it's boring. But it must be done. Also, at the end of the document there are some extra tips to consider when planning the timeline of the day, so even if you skim through, make sure you check those out.
