Facetime Photo Sessions – Life in Quarantine

Hi everyone! How are y’all doing? Hope you’re staying as safe and well as you can in these times. Yes, I know – everyone is saying “in these times” these days, and I think if I hear the words “the new normal” or “pivot” one more time, I might lose my mind!

Nick and I are doing okay: we’re self quarantining at home right now, and he’s still teaching piano lessons remotely. I won’t lie – it’s been scary, but I’m so grateful my clients have all postponed rather than cancelled their celebrations. I’ve been thinking about what to say – wanting to be an encouraging presence online, but as is normal for me, I have been overthinking on what to share here on my blog. But after an extremely rewarding week taking these FaceTime sessions, I wanted to share and open up scheduling for all.

What the heck is a FaceTime Session?

It’s a way to take portraits even in the midst of social distancing. I will use your phone’s camera to take and edit photos from my computer. The results are low resolution and can be a bit grainy, but I have been LOVING embracing the imperfections and having a new creative outlet.

You can even book directly with me online!

You might be thinking, “Woah, wait – taking portraits of people in their homes through FaceTime?”

Yes, exactly! It’s weird, it’s awkward, but it’s also full of joy.

Why do a FaceTime Session?

  • Spend time with your significant other and view this as a possible at home date!
  • Quarantining alone? Throw on a fabulous outfit and let me take some fancy/artsy selfies of you.
  • It’s a great reason to really tidy up your house!
  • They can act as content to share on your feed at the moment.
  • Spend 40 minutes laughing and being goofy with me. (Laughter is fantastic medicine right now!)
  • Document this moment in history.

I have found myself so much more creatively fulfilled rather than just worrying about the future of weddings and my business. (Don’t worry, y’all. I’m not going anywhere!)

Pricing:

The cost of these photoshoots is pay what you can between $20-$50, but no one will be turned away because of lack of payment. Message me and we’ll talk.

When you book online, simply specify the amount you’d like to pay, and I’ll send an invoice your way.

We are all just doing our best right now, and that is enough.

Currently booked clients have the option to book a FREE at home FaceTime session with me.

I am absolutely going to be sharing my backlog of elopements and sessions I had photographed before COVID -19 but wanted to get these out into the universe. Still adjusting to this new way of life.

If you’re interested in booking a FaceTime session with me, let’s talk, or feel free to book an appointment directly online!

YES, we are still booking weddings for late 2020 and 2021! I expect 2021 to be very busy for all wedding vendors, so contact me today to talk about your wedding plans.
