Mother’s Day is coming and with the way everything has been going I reluctantly had to cancel my mother’s day contest. Many of the collaborators for the contest have had to close their businesses temporarily because they are unable to keep to physical distancing guidelines. I was very sad to let the contest go. After several weeks have passed and we are getting a clearer picture of how BC is being affected we can begin to think of ways to reopen businesses in safe ways.
Safe Distancing Sessions
Mother and child safe distancing sessions. Safe distancing sessions are photography sessions that take into account the rules of physical distancing. During safe distancing sessions I will be using my long lens (70mm-200mm focal length.) This lens allows me to shoot from far away. These safe distancing sessions will be held outside my home in the fresh air. My house is in a very quiet cul-de-sac with almost no traffic which allows me to position myself at a safe distance.
No Contact Posing
These safe distancing sessions are no contact sessions. This means that I will guide your posing verbally. This is normal for me anyhow as I feel people are generally uncomfortable being touched so I always do as much of my guidance as possible in this way.
Sanitation and Cleanliness
I will have hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes and disinfectant sprays available for the sessions. Any props that are touched will be sprayed immediately after the session. I will err on the side of being overly cautious and liberal with the disinfectants. During your session I will stay more than 2 meters away at all times but will happily wear a mask if you would prefer me to.
I have been very excited to offer high quality and archival prints and I know you will love them as much as I do! Unfortunately the amazing prints I will be offering are not available currently. Because of these circumstances I will be giving digital images instead of the planned prints for the mother and child portraits. You will receive a selection of proofs to choose 5 images to be fully edited. Additional images may be purchased.
Due to the sessions being moved outdoors I will not be offering the sleepy style portraits at this time and will be doing the traditional portraits only. Follow this link for more information on the sessions. If you would like to subscribe to my mailing list please follow this link.
I will be taking a limited number of sessions to enable time between each family to disinfect all surfaces and to ensure clients don’t overlap. Session times will be pre scheduled and paid online with images being delivered digitally after your session.
