While the Michigan stay-at-home order currently extends through at least June 12, the Governor’s office has confirmed that outdoor photography is currently permitted as long as we maintain social distancing measures. I am not booking indoor sessions at this time.
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.
If you would like to book a session, I will not be taking deposits, and the contract will have cancellation flexibility based on changing laws and safety recommendations.
All sessions are subject to postponement if laws change.
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.
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.
I’ve been working with my wedding couples to reschedule their 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). Many are choosing to move to 2021, and I’m moving all 2020 contracts with no penalties. If I’m not available on the date you need to move to, I’ll work with you to have one of my associate photographers cover the date.
Here are the 2021 dates that are no longer available:
- May 1, 2021
- May 29, 2021
- June 12, 2021
- July 3, 2021
- July 24, 2021
- July 31, 2021
- September 18, 2021
Sending love. Stay safe!
