It is with a heavy heart that I’ve made the decision to temporarily close the newborn portion of my business until the pandemic is over. I’ve thought long and hard about officially doing this for a while, and right now with the number of cases and hospitalizations increasing, as well as news of new mutated strains, I just don’t personally feel comfortable handling brand new babies, even with precautions.
I know that there are still plenty of other photographers who will continue to offer this service (once lockdown measures are lifted) during the pandemic, and that’s perfectly okay too. If they feel that they are calm and confident enough to move forward safely, then I’m happy that new parents will still have options to choose from. Unfortunately, I am too nervous, and I’m a huge believer in the transfer of energy and emotions, and I know that there’s a good likelihood that my own situational nervous energy would change the environment, process, and end result of my newborn sessions at this time. It breaks my heart, but for me, this is the most responsible decision I can make at this time to protect my littlest clients.
Anyone who knows me, knows that newborns are my speciality. They’re my most loved genre of photography that I could ever do, and so this closure is TEMPORARY, until the pandemic is declared over. Who knows when that will be. All I know, is that one day in the future, you will see images of beautiful wee squishy newborns again, I promise!
Once lockdowns are lifted, my doors will still be open for any session where I can physically distance myself from my clients as much as possible, and I can’t wait to start seeing you all again!
Thank you all for your understanding and support.
