COVID-19 Photography Policies
Updated: February 24, 2022
Please note policies are subject to change without notice. All policies take into account the current government and healthcare recommendations. We are an immunocompromised household and will err on the side of caution in all situations. We have each have received our full vaccine dosage and boosters.
You are not required to wear a mask during your photo session.
Outdoor Photography Sessions
There are no size restrictions for outdoor sessions.There are no size restrictions for outdoor sessions.
I will continue to maintain a distance of over 6 feet throughout the session as much as possible, and if needing to get closer, I will ask your permission first. I may wear a mask when making up close adjustments or when working with very large groups.
You are not expected to wear a mask in between photos.
If you are immunocompromised, please let me know at the time of booking and I will not remove my mask at any point during the session, plus will maintain a distance of over 6 feet at all times.
Indoor and In-Home Photography Sessions
Please keep in mind I do not have a studio and some local indoor spaces I normally use are still not fully reopened and unrestricted. I am happy to provide a list of paid indoor spaces that are taking bookings and do not require masks.
At your indoor session, please only have the people present who will be in the photos.
If at any point COVID cases locally spike and no further restrictions are mandated, I may limit the number and size of indoor sessions I accept.
In Person Ordering Sessions
In person ordering sessions are currently available only by special request. You will be able to view your photos and order from an online gallery. If you have any difficulty using the gallery, we can also arrange a video call with screen share so I can walk you through your order that way.
As of March 1st, there are no longer any wedding restrictions.
We will continue to wear masks at all indoor ceremonies and receptions and in some outdoor circumstances. Please let us know before your event if any key individuals are immunocompromised and require extra precautions.
To reduce person to person contact, all consults are currently being completed by phone call or video call. Let me know what you'd prefer when setting up your consult!
Reschedules, Cancellations, and Extensions
I understand kids may be sent home or families need to quarantine without notice, so there is no longer a 24 hour cancellation period for sessions. If you are sick an hour before your session, you are able to reschedule without penalty and I offer unlimited reschedules for portrait and commercial sessions.
I have a more detailed rescheduling policy for weddings available upon request.
Gallery activations can be extended by special request. You can have one 5-day extension with the $25 fee waived if circumstances prevent you from being able to place your order.
Product Orders & Shipping
Return times from photo labs are currently longer than normal due to supply chain issues. I will advise of any known delays at the time of your order placement.
