Our Safety Plan
Ugh! We know that COVID-19 has thrown a wrench into everyone's plans in 2020 and now into 2021. It comes to no surprise to you, I'm sure, that it has affected our planning for this event too!
Just like last year, we are making accommodations to the event structure to ensure the safety
of event attendees and volunteers to the best of our ability. Plans for the event will be based on the current recommendations by the CDC as well as state mandates and final determinations will be made closer to the event. We will work closely with the event staff at Alexander Homestead as they are extremely well-versed in how to do large events safely. For example, we are considering a requirement for masks (except for in pictures, unless that's the look you are going for), not serving food or drink and/or escorting families directly to their scheduled photo shoot for pictures and then back to the car to limit interactions. If we cannot feel comfortable holding an event safely (or, of course, if the event is not allowed), we will reschedule the event for a later date when it is safe to do so. Trust that throughout the process your safety is of our utmost concern!
We will communicate all our final planning in advance of the event and will be issuing full refunds if anyone gets sick or no longer feels safe attending based on our changes.
All photographers and event participants will be encouraged not to attend the event if they
are symptomatic or have been exposed to anyone within two weeks of the event who is positive
for Covid-19. As such, we will ask that all participants be prepared to be flexible in terms of the schedule and photographer preferences. Again, if changes occur due to coronavirus that are outside of our control and you no longer want to participate in the event, we will refund your payment in full.
