Relaxed & Authentic Newborn and Family Photographer
Lockdown Doorstep Portraits
We find ourselves in unprecedented times at the moment. Life as we knew it three months ago is a distant memory. The idea of just popping into the town centre to exchange a pair of jeans or for a quick bite to eat with a friend in a cafe before the school run seems a world away from where we currently find ourselves.
When lockdown first began and “doorstep portraits” photography began to increase in popularity and I was asked on a few occasions if I would do it. At the time with the restrictions as they were, meaning we could only leave the house for just an hours exercise a day, meant I didn’t feel comfortable offering this service and I couldn’t class it as an essential trip.
After the announcement last week and the government relaxing of the lockdown restrictions I started to reconsider. I miss work, I miss my clients and i also know feel that we should document this historical one in a lifetime period time more than ever. That along with the new rules which states that if you can’t work from home then you may return to work as long as you maintain social distancing. I have also had a green light from my insurance company that I am insured to work and a with few trail runs under my belt to make sure I can maintain my high standards, I am now in a position to be able to start offering these.
It’s so important that we document this time for ourselves, and future generations. I know that there is now a real emphasis on our families and family life. We realise now more than ever that the things that matter the most to us aren’t necessarily the the things we surround ourselves with. What matters the most is that our family and our friends are safe and healthy. That they feel loved . I want to preserve these times and help freeze these memories forever.
So as of this week until the end of May 2020 I will now be offering a lockdown portraits. For the time being these will be based only at your residential property which must be located within 5 miles radius of SO18.
Because it’s more important than ever to help others who are in a less fortunate situation 15% of the fee for these portraits will be donated between two charities which will be chosen by my instagram followers.
