So, it’s been a couple of months since I’ve updated here.  I hope you’ve all been well through the shutdown these past few months.  As Massachusetts starts to re-open, I will be offering “socially distant” outdoor portrait sessions.  We are having such a beautiful spring here in MA, and it is really glorious to get to be out of the house for a little while, while still protecting everyone’s health.

What does it look like to have a “socially distant” portrait session with Mira Whiting Photography?  Well, for one thing, I, your photographer, will be wearing a mask for your protection, and I will use a long lens that allows me to create beautiful portraits while staying further away.  When picking a location for your portraits, I recommend we pick someplace either on your own property, or somewhere secluded enough that you will not need to be masked while being photographed.  Sometimes, this may mean that if you want to go to a particular place, we would schedule quite early or late to avoid the crowds (good news — that’s actually when the best and most flattering light of the day is anyway, so it’ll help your portraits be all the more beautiful).  I am also, unfortunately, not able to take extended family sessions where there would be more than 10 people in attendance (including me) for the time being — hopefully as the spread of COVID-19 slows, we will be able to open up a little bit more in further phases down the line.

The most important part, though?  Even with distancing, we can still capture the love in your family.   Here is one of my first sessions back to work since mid-March — all with long lens and proper distancing to ensure everyone’s safety.
