Does the family have to sign a consent form once the photographer arrives?
Yes. Our photographers are not allowed to provide services unless the family has signed a NILMDTS Parent Consent Form. Each photographer brings these along to the session, and after greeting the family and offering condolences, this is the first step before portraits are taken. The form not only releases NILMDTS of any liability issues, it also provides the family a clear explanation of the gift they will receive and provides us with the family’s contact information to send the final set of digital images to the parents once the images have been retouched.
