COVID-19 information

Here is an overview of the procedures I follow to ensure the safety of your family and mine:

  • I am fully vaccinated and am happy to show proof of vaccination
  • I will wear a mask during the entirety of our photo shoot and shoot from a distance of at least 6′ feet, if not more. If we are on your private property or where masks are not required, I am comfortable with you not being masked; however, I will still wear one for your protection.
  • Any props or photo accessories used during a shoot will be sanitized and disinfected between each shoot.
  • If you have come in contact with a known case of COVID-19, you must contact me immediately to reschedule your shoot.

Your health and safety (as well as that of my family’s) is my biggest priority. I will do my best to ensure the safest possible environment for our photo shoot, without diminishing the artistic quality of your images.
