There is something really sweet about shooting a younger sibling of a someone you photographed a few years before. It’s fun to reconnect with the clients and hear about their lives. The client also knows just what to expect from the shoot and the finished photo products. We again did the Fine Art Session that allows for multiple locations and creates enough variety that it pairs well with a small album. A bright, creative young woman, Chloe wasn’t afraid to be a little silly sometimes. Congratulations Chloe!
This was a fun little job. Christian called me from Houston to help him with a destination wedding proposal to his girlfriend, Nicole. We chose an epic spot close to Boulder that I had been to for an engagement session a few years before. I set up ahead of them behind a tree and pretended I was there photographing the mountain scenery so I could just turn and capture the moment when they walked by and he proposed. She said “yes” and we had a great time doing some engagement portraits on top of the world.
Dina was an international student at CU Boulder from Kuwait! She came in this spring with her younger brother and they were such a pleasure to work with – kind, polite, fun, smart, interesting. We did both studio portraits and outdoor portraits at Chautauqua to commemorate her graduation from CU Boulder, and to give her professional headshots for graduate school applications. It’s the first time someone has brought a cat in a backpack to an on location photo shoot!
I’me vaccinated and I’ve resumed work in the studio for vaccinated people and will continue to photograph vaccinated and unvaccinated people outdoors on location. There are still some coronavirus safe-session policies and procedures that make sense to protect everyone on our photo shoots.
Going forward, these new coronavirus safe-session policies and procedures will apply to all photo shoots and will continue to evolve as the situation dictates.
- Equipment will be wiped down with sanitizing solution upon set up prior to client’s arrival, and in between clients.
- Photographer (and makeup artist when scheduled) will wear a mask.
- Client will wear a mask to session and immediately following session.
- Client will review images on line.
- Photographer and client will keep at least 6 feet from each other at all times indoors.
- A no-touch policy will be in place which means no handshakes, no adjusting of subject’s hair, makeup or clothing. Photographer will direct subject to make adjustments.
- Photographer, makeup artist and clients will wash their hands or use hand sanitizer upon arrival to location. Photographer will provide hand sanitizer.
- 24 hour cancellation policy waived if illness occurs.
- If either photographer or subject feels sick in any capacity prior to the session or day of, especially fever, cough, or fatigue, photo session will not take place under any circumstances and will be rescheduled.
- If client or photographer feels unsafe at any time during the session, session will end and both client and photographer will determine how to proceed.
I am watching the situation closely and will update this blog as things change. To book a session, please contact me at 303-415-0545 or email Daniel@westendphotography.com. Feel free to call me with any questions.
In good health,
Despite it being windy and cold we had a great time and got some terrific images of Jade for her graduation from CU Denver. This was my first visit to the Emmanuel Art Gallery on campus. What an interesting history! Built in 1876, it was the first building on the state historical monuments list, it’s been a church, synagogue and now an art gallery.
