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.
It was so much fun to photograph Jenna for her senior portraits in the mountains above Boulder. Even though she’s very photogenic, she really doesn’t like being in front of the camera. I think she did extremely well in front of the camera and the images show it. I love working with and learning about these kids’ lives – their interests, hobbies, plans for next year, etc. We were able to get a nice variety of images and expressions in just over an hour and finished up just as the afternoon rain storms began to roll in. Thanks for indulging me and your mom, Jenna.
Since Grace’s mom went to CU, it was meaningful to incorporate the beautiful CU campus in her senior photos. After CU we headed up to Chautauqua and finished the afternoon with Grace kicking a soccer ball while walking up a trail with the sun setting behind her. We had a lot of fun with Grace and her family. Best of luck to Grace who is headed to Oregon State next year.
