Ashley Newman Photography
It feels like so much of the world has changed and there seems to be no easy answer to what the future holds. What I do know, as someone who feel passionate about documenting life and memories, I will always want to continue. Family and memories feel more important now than ever— and capturing your legacy is my lifelong work.
That being said, your safety and the safety of those around us are vitally important. My oldest child is considered at-risk so cleanliness and health have always been important to me.
Looking ahead, this is what you can expect from ANP and our team.
Limited number of sessions per day. Newborn sessions are scheduled on their own, and no other clients will be seen on the days I have a session scheduled.
Masks will be worn to protect all parties. We ask that you wear a mask when you are not being photographed.
Any blankets, pops or outfits borrowed from the studio will be washed and sanitized prior to each use.
Offering lifestyle newborns only- these require minimal contact with your baby. Most of these sessions will be directed, in your home, and do not require a lot of hands-on contact from your photographer. Of course, I am there to help wrap and direct your posing, but contact is limited and of course frequent hand-washing and disinfecting will always take place in between.
Consider an outdoor newborn session- this will help with social distancing and keep us in the fresh air. This is a greta option for those parents who do not feel comfortable with people in their home or who would prefer something entirely unique.
Hospital sessions are now replaced with Fresh 72. I wish I knew when hospital sessions will be available again, but for now it’s best to follow the guidelines laid out by hospitals and medical professionals.
Trust your gut. If it all still feels like too much, aim for a milestone session when your child is older. (check out this awesome guid for taking your own newborn photos). It’s still valuable to capture these important moments! Know that your photographer cares deeply for you and your family- we want you to stay healthy and well, without missing important milestones in life.
