Client understands and agrees that Photographer will not book other sessions during this time. In the event that Client cancels the session or fails to attend the session on the Session Date, for any reason, Photographer shall suffer losses that are difficult to ascertain. As such, Client agrees that, in the event of cancellation by Client, such retainers shall be forfeited by Client and paid to Photographer as liquidated damages and not as a penalty.
