I am so excited to announce that after several months of not working, Governor Jay Inslee has announced that photographers can begin to work again under Phase 2 of the Stay Home order. Life as we know it will not be the same for a while, but I am grateful that we can start to create some level of normalcy while still trying to be safe. The Governor has laid out some guidelines of what this will look like, and this might change in the coming weeks.
In the studio and outdoors, shooting will be done through social distancing. I will only be able to photograph one family grouping at a time. I will be thoroughly sanitizing any equipment, props, benches etc. Handwashing will be required at all sessions, and hand sanitizer is available at multiple places throughout the studio. I will be taking my own temperature before any session. I will be following CDC guidelines that if i have any symptoms, that I will reschedule my sessions for at least 2 weeks, and I will ask my clients to do the same.

I am grateful for the opportunity to serve my clients again. I am thankful that while disappointed, my clients have been so understanding about the whole situation.
