Covid-19 Resources

The health and safety of my clients and staff are of utmost importance as I begin re-opening for photography commissions. Here’s how I’m going to ensure a safe working environment.

Before the Session: Planning a Safe Environment

  • A planning call will take place to address questions and develop a plan to mitigate the risks of COVID-19 during the session.
  • Additional paperwork regarding COVID-19 liability will be required. This is to protect all parties from liabilities in case an unknown transmission occurs while working together.
  • Everyone connected to the session will be asked to complete a Health Screening Checklist prior to our scheduled shoot. The session will be rescheduled, without fee, in the case anyone self-identifies as a potential risk.
  • All sessions will be held outside.

The Session: Working Together

  • Physical distancing and reduced direct contact, as recommended by the CDC, will be maintained.
  • Only people directly involved will be allowed to attend the session.
  • All equipment will be thoroughly sanitized between clients. 
  • The Photographer and assistant will be required to wear a cloth mask. Clients not being photographed will be asked to wear a mask, as appropriate.
  • Hand sanitizer, wipes, and extra masks will be available.

After the session: Proofing + Ordering

  • If anyone connected to session develops symptoms or tests positive for COVID-19 within 5 days of the completion of the session, they must contact me. While all health information will remain anonymous and confidential, it is essential to notify participants of their possible exposure.
  • Proofing and ordering of images will be completed through on-line photo galleries and video calls. 
  • All artwork will be shipped directly to your home.

Photographing your life with dog is one of my favorite things to do. I look forward to working with you to capture beautiful images while maintaining a safe environment.  

Working through this new normal will require flexibility and patience from all parties. My goal here is to provide transparency and open a dialogue on how to move forward together.

I always say when working with dogs there are no silly questions. That is true now, more than ever.

I hope to see you and your pup soon.
