HELLO! I hope you and your families are healthy and safe, please reach out if you need support in dealing with any of this, you are not alone. This has been an incredible time for all of us, hopefully it goes without saying, there is a caring human being behind this business and I'm not going anywhere.

 

While it is not business as usual, and likely can't be for some time, I am completely committed to doing my absolute best to safely maintain the business that has supported my family for almost 10 years, to support other businesses in my community to bounce back and thrive, and to continue to freeze time, preserve memories and focus on JOY with my wonderful families - we all deserve some feel-good moments!

 

I am just as "over this" as you are BUT I will always look for ways to serve you, keep us safe and make the absolute BEST of this unbelievable situation.  Stay well friends.

UPDATE: April 3 2021

 

Open + booking sessions for commercial photography (headshots + branding sessions are still a GO!)

You can see a complete list of businesses allowed to open here. Photography falls under Media Industries.

All April portrait sessions are being rescheduled to May onward.

I am beyond GRATEFUL for your support and patience, I can't wait to see everyone!

Here's how things are working right now:

health + safety protocols

Protocols are based on guidance from the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) Ontario.ca website. 

These are subject to change as Public Health Restrictions tighten, change and/or are reduced.

no-contact measures:
  • Contracts, paperwork, questionnaires + payments are all done online.

  • Consultations + planning can all be done by phone, email or zoom.

  • With my lenses I can safely keep a 6ft (2m) physical distance.

  • If for some unforeseeable reason we need to be closer, I can wear a mask.

  • Final images are delivered by digital download in your private gallery.

  • Contracts now include a Health+Safety liability waiver.

  • If any parties attending the photoshoot (not just people being photographed) are unwell, have been diagnosed with or have come in contact with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID19, or have experienced any symptoms of unwellness within 14 days prior to the session - coughing, sneezing, fever, difficulty breathing, loss of taste or smell etc.we will reschedule.

  • Any parties attending the photoshoot must not have travelled outside of Canada, reside in Grey Zone lockdown areas or, attended a gathering larger than PHAC recommendations within 14 days prior to the shoot date. 

  • We will observe 6ft (2m) physical distancing where possible, masks will be worn if physical distancing is not possible. 

  • We will adhere to good hygiene standards, I have hand sanitizer and antiseptic wipes on hand. 

  • Sessions times will be spaced apart to allow for cleaning + sanitizing.

  • All names and contact info for people attending the photoshoot will be collected for contact tracing.

  • I will avoid bringing any props for now unless they can be properly sanitized, you may bring your own and I am happy to help give you ideas of what you can bring!

  • Sessions can take place outdoors, on your front porch, or in a public park (if allowed!). The studio remains closed for now.

  • Hugs, handshakes, hi-5s and chest bumps will have to wait (for now!)

  • If guidelines change from the PHAC, we will adjust accordingly and reschedule if necessary.

  • If you are being photographed with someone outside of your household or "family bubble/social circle" it is your responsibility and right to decide safe practices for yourselves.

 

Please let me know of any precautions you would like me to take that would make you feel comfortable prior to booking your session.
