Hello, my friends! I hope you all are doing well in this difficult time.
We are in uncharted waters and it has taken me some time to muster up this blog post. Gradually, I'm finding my bearings. I know some of you have been wondering how I will be operating my portrait studio in this time of distancing and if I can photograph you. Yes, I can photograph you but only outdoors and at a distance for now.
My studio is in the Northeast Quiet Corner of CT where there are fewer people anyway. Warmer weather and leaves on the trees will help as well! So, this will not be possible for another couple of weeks at the earliest - It actually snowed here yesterday morning!
I expect to start outdoor sessions for no more than 2 people at a time when the weather becomes warmer and the leaves emerge. Even though I have been home this whole time, except for dashing out to the grocery store every couple of weeks, I will not get close or touch anyone. My 200mm lens is perfect for this - I will not have to be closer than 10-12 feet from any of my portrait subjects, and perhaps further at times.
I will begin with High School Seniors who are graduating in spring 2021. Why? 1 Senior plus 1 parent and me - a perfect number for safe distancing. This will update as things get better, I hope. Also, High School Seniors need to have their yearbook photo to their school by the Fall so timing is important. If you attend a High School that requires you to be photographed ONLY by the school photographer in the fall, do the formal headshot there and come to me this summer and we will create the cool photos for you and your family that show who you are right now!
Before your session, I will chat with you on the phone and share documents over email. We can also plan a 'get to know you' meeting online - on Zoom, or another platform of choice. The video meeting will include the parent and senior together - we discuss your expectations, ideas for your session, and what wardrobe you will bring. Wardrobe changes will have to be in your car. It is super helpful to get to know each other a little before the session, so I understand your style, interests and how I can best work with you to create your senior portraits. We all get fired up during these pre-portrait meetings!
Payments will be made online so you don't have to worry about it at your session. Normally, my clients come to my studio to view their portraits post-session, but now I will only show you them online. It's easy, safer and can be done on any phone or computer. I've been doing this for people who travel to see me anyway. Unless distancing rules are lifted, photographing in my indoor studio will have to wait, but weather permitting, all sessions will be done outdoors in the wonderful locales near my studio. If we have to drive to a location we will use our separate cars - we can also set up rain dates just in case.
This really is not a big change for me except for the 'distancing' during sessions and no in-studio meetings or photoshoots in the studio. So I hope to see you this year and feel free to reach out if you have questions or concerns.

NOTE: All other portraits like headshots and families (no larger than 5 people ) will have similar guidelines as my HS Seniors for now. ALL of these sessions will also be OUTDOORS. If you need a studio-style headshot or portrait, call me to discuss, but it may have to wait. If you or anyone have been sick at home, please be honest and forthcoming and discuss the situation with me for everyone's protection. I will do the same.
Thank you for reading my blog and take good care out there!
