I’ve had some questions about my plans for photos this spring, especially as we come up on a popular time for MSU senior photos. During Michigan’s shelter in place, the best thing we can do for the community is to stay home and encourage others to do the same. I’ll be spending the next few weeks hanging out with my four and six-year-old daughters at home.
I’ve been working with my wedding couples to reschedule their Spring weddings (my friends at All Grand Events + Floral have a great blog post to guide couples on the tough decision about whether or not to reschedule). 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.
My MSU college seniors typically start scheduling in mid-April. At this point, I’ll continue to schedule for late April with the caveat that we will reschedule if it’s not safe to hold a session at that point. When it is safe, I imagine that we’ll still be avoiding contact, and I use a relatively long portrait lens, so I’ll still be able to keep a safe distance while capturing portraits.
I’m not planning to take any new indoor sessions at this time. I’ve already talked with my clients who have indoor sessions planned, and we’ll be working to make the best decisions for those sessions when the time comes.
Sending love. Stay safe!
