It Is Possible to have Socially Distanced Family Photography?
Well the short answer is yes. Absolutely possible. I’m guessing though that you need much more information, and quite rightly so. I’ve been out with my daughter for a little socially distanced family photography to help you understand how these new sessions will work.
All the photos uploaded to this blog post are taken on my 85mm lens which enables me to be super far away from you whilst I shoot. That’s more than 2 metres away, just in case you’re wondering. If you visit this page you’ll get an idea of how my sessions run, but in short you need to know that I’m not one for posing and directing. I don’t need contact with you (although naturally I am a hugger!) so keeping my distance doesn’t impact our photo shoot at all.
How Does Socially Distanced Family Photography Differ to a Usual Shoot.
My new socially distanced family photo shoot is short. Ordinarily I’d be with you and yours for a couple of hours. My shoots right now are going to be around an hour. I feel right now that to limit the time we are together is sensible.
Similarly family groups are going to be limited to five maximum. At this stage extended family shoots are a no go. For obvious reasons!
Our socially distanced family photography will take place out doors in a location that I’ve chosen to suit. (Sherrardswood is a favourite.) This will be in an area away from others, ensuring we don’t “bump” into anyone else. There are an array of stunning Hertfordshire locations providing beautiful backdrops for family photography.
How Many Socially Distanced Family Photo Shoots Will You Do?
To enable me to keep strict hygiene standards, I’ll take one booking a day only. This means that I’ll will arrive clean and fresh, having had no direct contact with anyone else.
Similarly, once your socially distanced family photography is booked we will stay in touch up to our session date making sure to inform each other should we learn that we have been in contact with anyone with Corona virus symptoms. If this does happen we will re schedule your shoot.
How Much Will This Cost?
My socially distanced photo shoots are priced in line with all my other mini shoot sessions. They include all pre shoot consultation and advice, all post processing and a gallery of approximately 20 images to choose your favourites from.
Your session will cost just £175 and includes three beautiful fine art prints and matching digital files from your shoot.
Fancy treating yourself? Purchase extra digital files for £15 each. Alternatively choose a pack of five extra for £65
