Portrait Photography During The Covid Shutdown of 2020
During the first year of covid, we adapted to outdoor portraiture, including an "outdoor studio" for Covid-19 safety measures! Here's a brief video I made for that time.
Here's another video explaining how we created studio headshots during covid.
My original message to clients included grateful thoughts like this: "Thank you for your continued support and desire to trust me with your photographic memories. As I type this message, I am encouraged by the flurry of emails in my inbox. I am in the midst of planning numerous sessions with excited clients, and look forward to connecting with more of you as the weeks roll on." I also outlined the extra safety measures we added, and reminded clients: "I'm a storyteller at heart, so being able to capture your memories and tell your story for you remains my goal." Whenever the covid situation fluxuates, my original statement stands: "We are continuing to monitor updates as announced by Governor Whitmer, and adjusting safety measures as needed."
