In a normal year as a photographer I’d be booked up all summer photographing weddings in Cornwall and large corporate events, rather than family commissions – but 2020 isn’t a normal year.
Large gatherings are still prohibited so major corporate events have been cancelled and all my weddings have moved to 2021, giving me unusual availability this summer. A positive from Covid-19 (and you’ve got to take the positives) is that 2021 is already shaping up to be super-busy…
So this is the chance to book me as your 2020 photographer for that family shoot and have a lasting memory of that precious family time in sunny Cornwall. That longed-for holiday at the beach here and an escape from the restrictions of the long spring Coronavirus lockdown. I can be there to record all those little moments as beautiful timeless photographs. A mix of natural portraits, lit portraits, action, moments…and of course the ubiquitous group photographs!
My family photography packages include 2-3 hours coverage, around 50-100 7×5 inch prints, high resolution USB and/or online gallery with image download facility – and a book-style album if required. I ask for full payment to book the date, which is transferable if required due to weather/illness etc (and my diary permitting) until the end of 2021.
I’ll adhere to current restrictions and the photoshoot must be in Cornwall. I’ll also maintain social distancing – even on a normal photoshoot I don’t generally get closer than two metres (and don’t worry, I have telephoto lenses!) The shoot should ideally be outside and I am happy to wear a face covering for your safety. I will of course update this as restrictions are (hopefully) eased.
It’s been a long and difficult time being trapped in lockdown and watching the pandemic spread across the world. But surely this period has shown how important family time is and how transient childhood is. Holidays have never been so important – or needed.
Please get in touch if you’d like to book a family photoshoot…& I’ll see you on the beach!
