Yes! I am currently open for business and fully vaccinated. Because I do almost all of my work outdoors, I feel that we can safely continue making beautiful images of your family at this time. HOWEVER, if at any time local or state mandates close non-essential businesses, I will not be able to continue working. If this happens, any sessions already booked will be rescheduled once the shut-down ends and new bookings will not be accepted until that time.
ARE YOU OPEN?
Most of my sessions are not limited at this time. Due to visitor restrictions in our local hospitals, I may not be able to schedule in-hospital Fresh 48 newborn sessions. If you are expecting a little one soon, please check with your hospital for current rules prior to booking.
Are your sessions limited by covid?
The best thing we can all do to keep each other safe - I am fully vaccinated! I am also constantly reviewing guidelines and doing my very best to follow the advice of the medical experts. I take the threat of exposure very seriously and would never do anything to put my clients at risk. I sanitize my equipment before and after every session, and carry hand sanitizer with me at all times. I typically would not hesitate to move that one pesky strand of hair, straighten a collar or hairbow, or even tickle the little ones toes, but I will ask at this time that parents step in for these tasks so I can be completely hands off.
Since our sessions take place outdoors, and we are able to safely keep more than a 6′ a distance, I do not wear a mask for the entirety of our session. So much of photography is centered around emotion and for me to elicit the most authentic expressions from your kiddos wearing a mask is very difficult. If you have chosen a venue for your session that has specific rules about masks, such as a university campus or city property, we will need to abide by those rules. That may mean lots of off and on of the mask for you between shots, and a mask for me for the duration of our time together. Your safety as well as my own is my top priority and I will adapt to any changes necessary to serve that purpose. If you have a high risk family member attending, please let me know so that I can be sure to wear a mask for the duration of our session for their protection.
