UPDATE MAY 23, 2020
Effective June 1, 2020, I will be reopening services per the BC Restart Plan. After many weeks of uncertainty I am excited to offer sessions again after many weeks of uncertainty. Please be sure to read COVID-19 Safety Guidelines and how sessions will be conducted moving forward and until further notice.
All new family portrait sessions booked will be outdoor sessions. With beautiful seasonal landscapes available, now is the time to document family and there may not be more than 5 people present at your session.
All sessions will be outdoor sessions held in a natural or urban setting. This is a special time for grads and I look forward to spending one on one time with them. Up to 4 family members are welcome to attend the session.
One person headshot sessions are available in studio. Outdoor sessions are being offered at this time. Locations around the city are abundant for nature or urban sessions.
You can still purchase digital files and order print products online but note that professional print labs may still be on stay at home order.
Pre-session Consultations and Ordering Sessions
These will be handled through an initial phone conversation, the online gallery for proofing, and ordering can take place with the use of a Zoom meeting or Facebook video chat.
Gift Certificates and Credits are available for anyone wanting to pre-book sessions to save for a later date.
**Social Distancing measures will be in effect for all in-person sessions and interactions. A minimum of 6 ft of distance must be kept for all people not living in the same household. This information is subject to change as we receive updated news each day.
Please reach out via email if you have any questions or are interested in booking me for photography services and we will discuss proper preventative measures.
It is extremely important that we safely conduct business during this time. While photography is not an essential service, the current guidelines in British Columbia state that a business may remain open if they can adapt their services and workplaces to fit within the orders and recommendations of the Public Health Officer.
