COVID-19 + Summer Photo Sessions

June 03, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Hello, all! It's been a while since I posted here or on social media, so I'm here today to do just that. It's been a crazy few weeks (months?) and my instinct has been to become even more introverted than normal, but it is way past time for me to pop on here for some updates. 💜

I let my business take a back seat to real life for the past couple of months, and honestly it has been great for my family. We have spent more time together, rested more, played more, and my cooking has never been better, haha. However, I am SO ready to get back behind the camera, catch up with my amazing clients, and create some art again!  

I am officially back photographing clients as of June 1st! 

Outdoor photography has always been a relatively safe activity, so my procedures won't have to change too much. Even so, I have been working behind the scenes to create some plans to keep my clients and myself safe.

I will continue to adapt based on the ever-changing rules in Colorado surrounding COVID-19, but these are my current plans for summer photo sessions (Updated 6/24/2020): 

  • I am booking outdoor photo sessions only, including outdoor newborn sessions! As long as the weather holds out, I will be taking advantage of the warm weather and the gorgeous Colorado landscapes. I will update with my plans for fall and winter when we get closer to that time. 
  • I will be photographing clients from a distance, primarily using long lenses. Long lenses force me to stay farther back from my subject which allows for plenty of social distancing. They also create that tack sharp subject + dreamy blurred background that I love so much! (This actually won't change my photographic style at all because I already photograph this way, but it is relevant so I wanted to mention it here.)  
  • Because all of my summer photo sessions will take place outside and with social distancing, I will let each client decide if they would prefer for me to wear a mask or not. I am happy to do so if requested! 
  • For the time being, I will not be touching clients (shaking hands, hugging, fixing hair, etc.) 
  • I will postpone with as much notice as possible if there is any concern of illness with myself or my family. (I have also given my clients the ability to postpone their sessions without penalty due to COVID-19 concerns.)  
  • I have added new COVID-19 waiver to my normal photo session agreement. 

I want to thank all of my clients for being so patient and understanding as we navigate this new "normal" together! You all have been so amazing and I couldn't be more thankful for you! If you have any questions about the safety of photography sessions please don't hesitate to reach out and I will be happy to help. I will be keeping you all updated as I make some decisions about photo session scheduling moving forward, but please reach out if you want to start planning for summer or fall photos!

And because no blog post is complete without at least a couple of photos - I bring you my own kiddos. We took these last summer when our field was lush, green, and full of blue bells. 💜
