Outdoor sessions will be limited to locations that are not crowded. As prior to COVID-19, a permit fee will be added for locations that require them. The photographer will remain at least 6 feet away from clients at all times. When I am using my favorite lenses, in most cases I will be at least 15 feet away. Equipment will be cleaned between sessions. I will have hand sanitizer available at the session. I will be wearing a mask the entire time.
It is recommended that clients bring some clean tissues and hand sanitizer/sanitizing wipes in their bag during the session. If you would like to bring masks for your family to wear while walking around the location, when photos are not being taken, it is recommended. Not Covid-19 related, but I always ask clients to bring a bag or purse to carry their belongings during the session. To avoid lumpy pockets in photos, please place your keys, cell phones, and wallets in your bag during the session. I will no longer provide an outdoor blanket for sitting during portraits. If you choose to bring your own to use for seated portraits, please make sure it is a neutral color, such as cream, ivory, or beige. I highly recommend this, as seated portraits are often a client favorite. If you are wearing light colored shorts, you may not want to sit on grass. Here are several links to throw blankets that you could purchase to bring if you don't already have something at home.
If buying a blanket is not possible, you may bring a neutral, solid color bed sheet and you can fold it up very tight so it isn't too noticeable when you sit on it.
MOST IMPORTANT! If someone in your group has been ill in the past week, I ask you to notify me. If I, or someone in my immediate family has been ill, I will notify the client.
ALSO, please contact me to reschedule if you or your child starts with a runny nose or cough the day of the session. I will totally understand and I will gladly be very accommodating. Do not hesitate to contact me, even if last minute. We will reschedule. Thank you for helping to keep me and my family safe too. I also ask that if you may have been exposed to COVID-19, or have recently been around someone who tested positive for COVID-19, to please wait to schedule a session. I have a high risk child at home, so I need to be extra cautious.
