While busy today I noticed that there was some amazing businesses, entrepreneurs and leaders out there in the middle of this world epidemic coronavirus. We decided to share some of that amazing stories with you.
“I’m really glad that I’m still able to provide my services to clients, without putting them or I in danger. I’m just making small adjustments and increasing my hygiene practices etc. For instance, instead of doing at-home photo shoots during this time, I’m taking my clients to quiet outdoor locations. That way we don’t have to break social distancing guidelines, and we don’t have to come in contact with frequently touched surfaces. Despite the mayhem and anxiety around us, we can stop for an hour or so, get some fresh air and sunshine, and focus on family and treasuring our loved ones. Also, I’m aware that the guidelines regarding large gatherings have affected the wedding plans of many. So I’m offering couples low cost Wedding Photography packages exclusively for Intimate weddings and elopements. This means that if they’ve lost money because of having lost their venu booking etc, they won’t have to break the bank on photography. I’m also offering any clients who feel that they want to postpone their shoot free date changes. After all, we’re all in this together, and I don’t want something like a photo shoot booking to be an added stress on my clients who have already had to perhaps postpone their holiday etc.”– Natalie Oosthuyzen Natalie Anne Photography
