As planned, after an insanely busy month of May shooting doorstep family portraits around my local area of Urmston and Chorlton, the doors have finally closed on these special shoots.
Although I’ll no longer be offering doorstep shoots, I’m very much looking forward to happier, freer times and I can’t wait to start doing ‘proper’ family shoots again, giving more families these precious memories to cherish. I’ve opened up my calendar to book in shoots between August and December 2020, and you can have a gander at my brochure here. All slots can of course be rescheduled free of charge to a later, safer date if it’s still not feasible nearer the time and gift vouchers are also available. Hopefully in the interim, we’ll have some really positive news and it might become safe and possible to bring shoots forwards a bit – but for the time being I’d rather keep it simple and arrange them for a time when we have less chance of needing to reschedule.
As for the doorstep shoots, I just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to all the ace families who invited me to capture this crazy time. As well as brightening up my days with all your spirit, love and laughter, together we’ve raised hundreds of pounds for Stretford Foodbank and The Christie.
Many of these lovely families also wrote a few words about their own experiences of lockdown, so I’ll be sharing their individual stories too here on the blog throughout June. It’s been so heartwarming to hear so many positive experiences have come from such a heartbreaking time, and these little rays of sunshine have very much lifted my spirits – I hope they do the same for you too.
What a right bunch of belters they all are… without further ado… my lockdown families of May 2020!
