Next Zoom Class, and a BIG THANK YOU! – Midland Texas Maternity, Newborn, & Family Photographer

I just wanted to take a minute and give a big thank you to everyone!   First responders, medical personal, grocery store workers, truck drivers, friends, neighbors..  basically every single person who has pulled together and contributed positively in some way to help make this difficult time better for someone and to help us get over this pandemic sooner rather than later.    It doesn’t take a lot of effort to be kind to someone and during this time we need kindness more than ever.

Also a huge THANKS to those who responded to my own personal struggle.   I saw a good friend of mine set up a little fundraiser for me which seriously touched my heart!  My little Easter fundraiser with the egg digitals helped a bit too and definitely is keeping me busy!  I’m doing print consultations virtually at home and even though my crazy dog is attacking his stuffed duck and my son screaming his head off people are still buying prints and every single sale has been a huge blessing to my family and business.

~*~

People are always checking on me and I’m not going to lie, it’s been tough.  I know there are those who have issues larger than mine, but it was really hard knowing that I had to lock the doors walk away from my studio.  My business is almost 10 years in the making and I fought tooth and nail to get where I am today.  The thought that this could be the end and the very real possibility that I may never financially recover from this is scary and I lay awake at night wondering what my next move will be.  I will be saying lots of prayers that all the small businesses and entrepreneurs out there will come out of this stronger and better than ever when this pandemic is over!

 

To end on a Happy NOTE!

I would love to see your beautiful faces and talk to you!  I am holding a ZOOM webinar next week and for a fee would love to teach you some amazing tips and tricks to composite photography with newborns!   I love editing, and I love photoshop and maybe I can help teach you something new while we are all stuck at home for the time being.  🙂

I am alone right now with no staff but promise I will call every single client on the calendar this month and do everything I can do get you re-situated for the spring If you can kindly be patient with me. If you have a due date this month for your newborn please still reach out to me so we can do the best we can and be ready to go when the restrictions are lifted. <3

If any photographers want to outsource editing, I would appreciate any income coming my way. Or if anyone is interested in learning anything via web meeting I’m happy to set something up to during this month. <3

Thanks so much for everything and your kindness and generosity West Texas! I love and appreciate ya’ll. It’s not going to be the same unable to hold and photograph your little miracles.

A note from Kimberly : Your health and safety is important to me

To my dear West Texas clients:

I know many of us are concerned about the global spread of COVID-19.  With people cleaning out the shelves at the stores and events and schools closing world wide, I have personally felt concern as well, especially being a mother and business owner.

My studio will run and operate as normally as it can during this time since newborn / baby photographer is time sensitive and also hoping that by continuing to produce beautiful art it will bring some sunshine and happiness to you and your family during these panicked times.  If things change and I need to make the difficult choice to shut down business I will let you know asap.  If you feel if it’s in your best interest to postpone our appointment together in the next 2 weeks please contact me immediately.

I wan to assure everyone that I am focused and dedicated to the safety and wellbeing of my clients by maintaining a healthy and safe workplace.

-All my props, equipment, furniture, outfits, etc… will be disinfected (or washed) after every session.  I will have hand sanitizer available to you at all times.  I have not been able to find any in the stores but so grateful I always have some on hand at the studio and my home!

-If you are sick and showing symptoms (cough, flu, etc….) please contact my studio immediately so we can postpone your session until everyone is healthy again.  If I suspect of symptoms, illness I will unfortunately have to immediately end our session together.

-If you have recently traveled internationally or anywhere on Level 3 notice please notify me immediately.

-Please do not being extra people that is not actively participating in the session.  The less people in my studio the better for everyone.

As always, your and your baby’s health is in my highest priority and will continue to evaluate the best practices for client safety.  If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to me!

-Sincerly

Kimberly Cowan, CPP.

Snow Day! – Midland, TX Newborn, Family, and Baby Photographer

Gosh!  What did ya’ll think about all that snow we got this week!

I’ve lived in Midland, Texas my entire life and can only recall a handful of times we received a significant amount of snow, so I was so surprised when we got our weather treat this week!   The kids where happy when they cancelled school and the last time Jayden saw snow was when he was 6 months old and of course he doesn’t remember that.

So what does a photographer do when it snows and sticks!  She gets her camera that’s what!

Here is a few composites I did of my kiddos Jayden (5) and Eleana (13) playing around in the front yard.
