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!

Everyone is yearning for a little social interaction, so we thought we would share Latrece and Kevin’s Ten Year Anniversary Celebration! 

Hayes & Fisk photographed their wedding in 2009, so we were thrilled when they reached out and asked us to document their anniversary celebration. Friends and family gathered at the Jefferson Hotel to toast Latrece & Kevin’s 10 Year Anniversary. The Jefferson was also the site of their wedding, so it was the perfect place for this special occasion. In addition, they also had their daughter Kherrington there to make it even more special.

Everyone enjoyed a full day of festivities, that included spa treatments for the women and a little fun at the indoor shooting range for the men. The day concluded with a portrait sitting for everyone and a group shot for an album to commemorate the day. 

What a great way to celebrate with family and friends! We know that everyone is counting down the days until we can get back to our new “normal” and document life’s special occasions as we celebrate with those closest to us.

Finally, we are hoping you everyone is staying safe and healthy. We look forward to seeing everyone very soon.

Castle Hill Cider Wedding

With so many weddings being altered and postponed in light of what is going on in the world, we thought we would shed a little light with Libby & Eric’s Castle Hill Cider Wedding. We have been photographing the Lane Family for years. Libby’s wedding was the third Lane wedding we have photographed, so it was very special to us. 

The Wedding Day

Rain rain go away! Well, Libby did wish for a little snowy send-off, but instead, she got a full day of rain. However, as the superstition goes, it is supposed to bring the couple good luck. Nonetheless, with the stunning background of Castle Hill Cider’s barn-like venue, and stunning fairyland garden decor the day was absolutely spectacular. Now the Lane family really knows how to have fun and throw a wedding. We have been photographing this family’s celebrations and happy occasions since before Jack, the youngest son, was born.

In true Lane Wedding fashion, the large bridal party with all guests in tow didn’t let the shift in plans to -everything indoors- damper their spirits!

Surrounded by a room full of bridesmaids and groomsmen, both Libby and Eric, prepared for their big day. Eric and the men were on one end of the venue, enjoying a few beers, and Libby and ladies were on the other end, sipping champagne. Everyone hustled to get ready as the cider tasting room patrons finished their tastings and headed out into the rain. 

The silhouette of Beth and Maddie against the huge windows working diligently to make sure that Libby was perfectly dressed for Eric’s first look was one of my favorite shots of the day.

We were able to get a few quick shots of the frosted look and a few quick shots looking at the camera between the showers.  However, seeing how emotional Eric was when he turned around and walked to his soon to be wife made all of that go away. It was so sweet and heartfelt. At that moment, it wouldn’t have mattered if it was snow, sleet, showers, or sunshine. 

The ceremony was moved to the attic, which was warm and inviting, with cider barrels and appropriate decor.  Through laughter and tears, Eric and Libby we pronounced husband and wife. 

The Reception

Then everyone headed downstairs into the reception with introductions of broadway-like improvisations from the wedding party. This set the tone for a full evening of fun and celebrating!

A reflective speech by Billy, the father of the bride, started off the night with laughter and stories of little Libby’s antics as a child.  Then there was a family-style dinner, including a long head table, that set the mood for togetherness and harmony. Following dinner, there were hours of non-stop dancing where everyone had an amazing evening celebrating this great couple. I can say with certainty, that a great time was had by all!
