We are celebrating Father’s Day all week long! Hayes & Fisk wants to give a huge shut out to all of the dads, granddads, uncles, and father figures. These men are there to provide guidance and support to our children. All kids need a father figure in their lives and we salute all the men that step up and fill those shoes.

As photographers, we are fortunate to be able to able to spend our days seeing inside so many different relationships. We photograph newborn sessions, children with their grandparents, weddings, people with their pets, and even end of life celebrations. Getting to know our clients and seeing just a small glimpse inside their most special relationships means the world to us.

It literally brought tears to our eyes as we went through folder after folder of sessions so we could pull together the images you find below. You will see fathers, granddads, pet dads, and more. One thing that is constant is the love you see in these men’s eyes. Some of the smiles are so big you can feel the love just by looking at these images.

The one thing that these pictures remind us is how important it is to document these special times. We can say with 100% certainty that no one, in any of these images below, regret taking the time to capture these special moments.

As we approach the day to celebrate dads, Hayes & Fisk wants to wish all of you a very Happy Fathers’ Day. You deserve to be recognized on this special day.

It is an understatement to simply say We Can’t Wait to See You! However, that is the truth! We want you in our studio and in our gardens. We can’t wait to catch up and see how each of you is doing. But in order for that to happen, we have to make sure that […]

It is an understatement to simply say We Can’t Wait to See You! However, that is the truth! We want you in our studio and in our gardens. We can’t wait to catch up and see how each of you is doing.

But in order for that to happen, we have to make sure that it is safe for us and for each of you. Below you will find the guidelines set forth by the Professional Photographers of America. We want to share this with you so that you know that we have your well-being in mind. Safety is the most important step in reopening our studio.

That being said, we want you to know that we will be adhering to each of these guidelines and we are confident that you can take part in a session in a safe environment. However, in return, we ask that each of our clients do their part as well.

In celebration of Mother’s Day we included some images below that celebrate some of the beautiful Hayes & Fisk moms, so be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of this post!

We hope to see you soon!

Reopening Guidelines

Professional photographers serve as the primary keepers of our world, national, and family histories. Prior to the mid-1800’s, almost everything we knew about our world was written by hand. However, when we think of our world today, we think in terms of the images created by highly skilled professional photographers.

As an industry, professional photography has embraced the need to reduce the spread of COVID-19 through social distancing, including shelter in place orders. As a leading organization, we urge members to be responsible community members and are grateful for the thousands upon thousands of professional photographers who are doing all they can to ensure the safety of others during this difficult time.

As the smallest of small businesses, professional photographers are often the hardest hit by the financial loss resulting from economic downturns. That is especially true with the current circumstances. Many will be eager to get back to work quickly once restrictions are lifted. In preparation for that, we offer the following guidelines for professional photographers to use as they follow state and local leaders’ phased-in efforts to re-open businesses:

Adherence to State and Local guidelines

Above all, professional photographers believe in being good community citizens. We urge all members to work cooperatively with their state and local leaders to provide a safe environment for all. By adhering to guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control, we believe we can reopen photography businesses safely, and at the same time, contribute into the emotional and financial healing process that needs to take place in a post-COVID-19 world.

Personal Protective Equipment

The use of PPE such as masks and gloves should be used while working with clients. We recommend that this measure continues through the end of phase three as outlined in recently released federal guidelines. The guidelines can be found at: https://www.whitehouse.gov/openingamerica/

Employees & Guidelines

Any studio employees or photographic assistants who are sick should be expected to stay home. Studio owners should provide training and educational materials available through the CDC website on proper sanitation, hand washing, cough and sneeze etiquette, use of PPE, and other protective behaviors. Break rooms or other areas of the studio should be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized, and not used for congregating by employees.

Social distancing / No touch

Photographers should maintain social distancing, using no-touch posing methods when at all possible. Until further notice is received from the CDC and other health officials, the maximum gathering for a photographic shoot of 10 or fewer persons should be observed.

By appointment only

Professional photographers should hold to strict appointment times, allowing sufficient time to sanitize photographic equipment and common areas after each client session. Only one client (and family) should be allowed in studio facilities at any given time. If the session is held offsite, only one client (and family) should be staged in the immediate area.

Temperature checks and screening questions
Temperature checks should be conducted for each photographic client (including each member of the family present) prior to each session. Any subject or family member with a fever exceeding 100.4 degrees should be rescheduled. Screening questions could include:

  • How are you feeling?
  • Have you had a cough or any flu-like or COVID symptoms in the last 14 days?
  • Have you been around anyone exhibiting these symptoms with the last 14 days?
  • Are you living with anyone who is sick or quarantined?

Adherence to sanitation protocols
Standard sanitation protocols prior to each client should include but not be limited to:

  • Washing hands regularly before and after photographic sessions
  • Sanitation of all props, chairs, benches with which a client may come into contact
  • Sanitation of restroom/dressing facilities if available to clients in-studio
  • Sanitation of common areas, including doorknobs (interior and exterior), countertops, pens, and pencils, tablets and monitors
  • Removal of unnecessary paper products or décor (magazines, newspapers, extraneous sales materials)

We Can't Wait to See You!

Since today is Mother’s Day we thought we would include a few images to celebrate all of the fabulous mothers that are part of the Hayes & Fisk Family!

National Nurses Day is the perfect time to share our Cookies with a Cause post! Over the past seven weeks, we have really missed being with our clients. Being in the studio and documenting life’s special occasions, are what truly makes us happy.

Yes, we have kept busy scheduling future sessions, talking with brides, and getting our garden ready, but being away from our clients has been really hard. We are excited to get back in the studio very soon! This weekend will be sharing a post that will include our reopening plan and our new guidelines to keep us and our Hayes & Fisk Family safe.

Our long time clients know that one thing they can count on is fresh baked cookies when they come into our studio. So, to keep ourselves busy and to feel like we were doing something to better this crazy situation; we decided to bake!

We figured that our healthcare and frontline workers could use a little something sweet to brighten their day. So we pulled out the Kitchenaid and got to work baking dozens and dozens of homemade chocolate chip cookies. We delivered them to doctors, nurses, and various frontline workers. Our clients even picked them up to take to work to share. It was just something simple we could do to say thank you and let these hard-working individuals know we were thinking about them.

While we can’t wait to be baking cookies to share with our clients in the studio, for now, we hope that our local community knows how much we appreciate them.
