FAMILY PHOTOS IN THE TIME OF QUARANTINE
Creating a Successful Family Photo Session on Oahu in 2020
I am dedicated to helping my clients maintain their yearly Family Photo tradition while following pandemic guidelines and protocols. Here’s the three most important things to create a successful Family Photo Session on Oahu in 2020.
First, we select a legal and open location on Oahu. Sometimes this involves an “outside of the box” idea for a setting. Perhaps it’s not the usual beach or outdoor location, but instead a deserted downtown street area or urban setting with cool graffiti walls. Other ideas may include a private estate (I have a few of these up my sleeve) with a mountain or farm backdrop, a family’s backyard, a waterfall area, or an off-road adventure close by. There are still some beach areas that are accessible, open and secluded, but may take a little bit more effort to reach. Ask yourselves these questions: can your feet get wet? can everyone in the group walk for 10 minutes? If yes, then there are definitely great beach locations that will work!
Second, limited interaction with the photographer. The photographer can achieve this while wearing a mask, utilizing longer lens focal lengths and documentary techniques versus the usual stiff and boring poses and groupings, and shortening the session length. A discussion between the family members and the photographer on the phone/video chat prior to the session will also help to minimize the interaction during the session. A solid game plan always helps to move things along during your Family Photo Session.
