Charleen’s New Procedures For The Studio 3/19/20

I know things may be unsettling during this time… So if you’re here now, it must mean that I have a session already scheduled for you or that you would like to schedule one.

Let me first tell you it breaks my heart that our family members, friend and neighbors are getting sick and that social distancing and self-quarantine is important to stop the spread of this awful virus. It hurts my soul that my business of capturing your memories for spring portraits, proms, graduation and league portraits – is in a state of unknown. Spring is supposed to be the most fun and exciting time of your school career but instead, families are faced with the challenge of not seeing their child celebrate all that they have accomplished through excitement of prom’s and the accomplishments of a graduation. It’s simply not fair and it breaks my heart for the class of 2020! If you’re a Senior (or parent!), know that I’m sending you hugs and prayers and hope this clears up sooner than later.

Ordering sessions:  scheduled for our studio during this shut down will stay on schedule but with a slight alteration to the location. You will be viewing and ordering from the comfort of your home with the use of today’s technology and special links to share my computer screens with you. We will be contacting anyone with an ordering session during this time frame to help you prep for this.

Pet Photo Contest: For our furry friends and our current Pet contestants, we will be offering to reschedule and will be extending our Pet Photo Contest into June.  Dates are already  posted and available for booking.

Baby Duckling sessions:  will be staying on schedule with a few alterations to appointment times.  We will be spacing them out a bit more so that we can limit anyone’s exposure to other families and it will also allow us time to clean surfaces in between appointments. We will be sharing and presenting your images virtually so that you may choose and order from the comfort of your home. Parents will be acting as my assistant to help in corralling the ducks during the session and fixing their child. I will be practicing social distancing and will be giving direction from behind the camera so that all may feel safe during their session.

To the Class of 2020: Once we are finally on the other side of this, I want you to know that I would like to give you complimentary session at the studio in your Prom Gown, Tux and Cap and Gown! You deserve to be recognized and you deserve this memory!

To the Class of 2021: I will be posting booking dates that start in the month of July. Rest assured that if you reserve a session, and we need to still make alterations on dates, that I will do everything possible to ensure you are rescheduled and that your session exceeds your expectations!

To my future clients: If you came here to see the our menu of sessions and services, you’re welcome to still schedule a portrait session as the dates allowing bookings are further out and hopefully we will be passed all of this!

I kindly ask that if you or family members are not feeling well or have been exposed to someone displaying symptoms or diagnosed with the virus to please refrain from coming into the studio.  I will take the same measures to cancel any sessions should I or my family experience the same.

If there is anything I can do for you in the meantime please feel free to reach out!

Sincerely,

Charleen
