It was okay. I was a little nervous about buying a contract without seeing any sample section of it and wish I wouldn’t have taken the risk. Ended up using a different one.

Response from Sarah Botta Photography

This contract is now updated to include everything you could need in and is now the #1 selling contract in the shop.
