Planning Your Photos with the Uncertainty of Covid-19 (Updated July 16)

East Lansing senior photo ideas

Outdoor photography is currently permitted as long as we maintain social distancing measures. I am not booking indoor sessions at this time.

MSU is now requiring masks on campus, both inside and outside, so I won’t be hosting photo sessions on campus until further notice.

I use a relatively long portrait lens, so I’ll still be able to keep a safe distance while capturing portraits, and I will be wearing a mask to sessions in the near term.

All sessions are subject to postponement if laws change.

Newborn Sessions

Newborn sessions are typically very hands on, so these sessions will have to be adapted to be extra cautious for the health of babies.

Newborn lifestyle sessions will become outdoor sessions for the near term. I can drop off wraps, headbands, and hats a few days in advance to give you a chance to wash them if you wish. I also recommend a white onesie. I will send over directions for wrapping your baby.

During the session, I will focus on photos of you holding your little one.

Weddings

If you’re in this position, I’m so, so sorry. Jeff and I had to reschedule our entire wedding when our Chicago wedding venue went out of business. It was stressful, but the wait was worth it, and we had an amazing wedding day four months after the wedding we were initially planning for.

You can read the officially Michigan guidelines here. Photographers face potential fines for photographing events that break these rules.

Based on these guidelines, most couples are now opting to change their weddings to small ceremony only events with postponed receptions or to postpone completely. I do not recommend hosting a large event involving alcohol – there seems to be a direct correlation between alcohol and difficulties maintaining social distancing.

Outdoor events are now allowed for groups of 100 or less, but please know that government guidelines limit close group photos of people who do not live together, since these groups need to maintain a distance of six feet to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Read the CDC’s considerations for events and gatherings.
