I'm Suzy of Simply by Suzy, and I'm so happy you're here at my blog because I can't wait to serve you with lots of good stuff like a peek into all of my favorite photoshoots for clients, freebies and resources on motherhood, how to get more connected with your life, and how to take beautiful pictures of it.
At a time where there isn’t a whole lot to do, my job has felt a new level of servitude to clients as a photoshoot has become so much more than just creating beautiful photos. Booking a photo session has really become such an experience for families this year as everything is shut down and traveling feels so out of reach. There is also a lot of concern for parents though to make sure that they are engaging in activities right now that are safe, and I take my conduct very seriously in regards to making sure that the families I work with are safe when they shoot with me. For those interested in working with me right now and wondering what my own personal COVID protocols are for keeping clients safe –
If you’re reading this as a photographer, I would encourage you to consider what your COVID safety protocols are and how you communicate that to clients. If you’re reading this as someone who wants to have a photoshoot inside right now, I would encourage you to make sure you ask any photographers you inquire with what their COVID protocols are currently in place.
Some non-COVID related tips for having a photoshoot at home and making it super fun –
Here is an absolute favorite favorite session of mine recently with a family who was just down to have fun together and be with each other in the preset moment. We shot in their home and then went for a very short and cold walk along the lake front like they typically do when I’m not there. It felt easy and fun, like I was simply a friend coming over to hang out and take pictures. The ultimate adult play date xo
