A very special congratulations to the graduating class of 2020. This has been especially hard for our graduating senior this year in the midst of Covid. I would like to take a moment to encourage you to press forward, to always believe in the power of your dreams, and to never allow anything to take them from you! We all face difficulties in life. We all have seasons of challenge and uncertainty. Hold close to your hearts the knowing that this too shall pass, in time we will move forward leaving this time in the past. As long as we keep our minds clear and our hearts set on our goals, while holding as positive of an outlook as possible, we will be equipped to take the next step when our moment comes. Best wishes to all of our seniors! I look forward to seeing all that you will grow to accomplish! All the very best! Christi
Our studio is now open with social distancing and Covid-19 regulations observed. As of June 1st, Studio Sessions are available for Individual Corporate Head Shots, Food and Product Photography. Outdoor sessions are available for all portrait offerings. We have reopened as a part of Phase 1, with the following stipulations. The day before your session we will reach out to you to ask a few questions as outlined by OHA, Oregon Health Authority. The following questions apply:
Have you had a new or worsening cough?
Have you had a fever?
Have you had shortness of breath?
Have you been in close contact with anyone with these symptoms or anyone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the past 14 days?
If the answer is yes to any of these questions, your session will need to be rescheduled until either your fever has been resolved without medication for at least 72 hours, or at least 14 days after contact with a person sick with a cough, fever, or diagnosed with COVID-19.
Phase 1 opening, Photography services will be offered in an outdoor open air setting, with social distancing observed between myself and clients. Fortunately the most beautiful season of the year is before us, and we live in one of the most beautiful places on earth. From orchards, to farm settings, or along the waterfront, there are so many opportunities for stunning backdrops for your upcoming session.
For our corporate clients and business services, our studio is available, allowing for one client per appointment.
During this time there will be some strict policies in place for your safety and comfort in knowing you are in good hands:
Props will not be available for use as this could be a potential issue with the spreading of germs, even though everything is cleaned between each use.
Payments will be make remotely in advance rather than in person, and the same will apply to proofing sessions. This will aid in the recommended social distancing of 6'.
All planning communications for sessions will be done via phone, email or FB messenger rather than in studio planning sessions. During this time we will plan our location, our date and time, wardrobe, and go over your wish list for your session.
You are more than welcome to bring any props you would like to use. I will bring an iPad along to show posing options at a safe distance and will take you thought the poses you like. But remember, candid photos are always a favorite as they capture true personalities.
If you have any special request that will make your session more comfortable for you, I am more than happy to accommodate my clients. Your peace of mind and enjoyment is my number one concern.
These sessions can be a fun get away escape from indoors while enjoying the beauty of the Northwest and taking in some sun and fresh air. Not to mention the bonus of having treasured memories to hold on to for a life time from your special day!
Wishing all the best of health and unity you and yours during this time of uncertainty, and always,
Note: In compliance with OHA, a minimum of 6' distancing will be observed. For studio sessions, your photographer will be wearing a mask for your protection. All cleaning requirements of OHA will be observed. Hand Sanitizer will be available for your use, and it is requested that you also wash your hands prior to any In Studio Sessions. At the time of your Studio Session, we will call or text to invite you in for your appointment. For your protection, the use of studio clothing and props will not be available during this time. Session payments will need to be made online at the time of booking to reduce the use of paper and handling of credit cards.
