Back in March I thought the days would never end. Now, there just aren’t enough hours in each day to get everything accomplished. Our dance school photography got pushed back because of Covid-19. In fact, earlier in the summer we weren’t even sure that the dance recitals would actually happen.
However, out of our 5 amazing dance schools, we have already photographed 3 of them and have one to go. (one decided on a virtual only option, so we didn’t do pictures). The kids were SO happy to just be there. They looked as cute as ever in their costumes.
We did have to make some major changes in the way we approach our dance school (and team) photography to comply with the CDC’s recommendations for safety. We had to go completely paperless. We had to implement a system where we eliminated order forms and in person payments. This took a lot of extra work on my end, but it proved to be much better for the parents. And going forward, we will continue this new process for future teams and large groups.
We also had to extend our photography days so we had more time in between each group. Plus, we eliminated one employee so we had less people in the room.
Even though we had to make a lot of major changes, we were still able to provide the same great dance photography. Take a look at these…
