Many families did not let the pandemic stop them from doing their traditional fall photo sessions.
With the generally beautiful weather and stunning foliage this year, who would not pose for snapshots in what is considered to be the most sought after mini session every year.
Mark Godilano of Mark Godilano Photography is one of the many photographers in Winnipeg who do photo sessions.
“Fall has the most beautiful colors and feel and this is something that most families want to hang on their wall as a souvenir.”
Godilano said that he started taking bookings after the government allowed businesses to operate provided that safety protocols are followed. He takes bookings until there is enough foliage and while leaves haven’t fallen from trees yet.
And while his wedding and other event bookings were affected by the pandemic, many booked for the photo sessions.
“I guess since we cannot travel for vacations, people have more time for their families which includes photoshoots like this,” Mark said.
Locations for photoshoot are mostly outdoors such as parks, fields and forests but Godilano assures that he and his clients still follow safety measures.
“We practice social distancing so it’s basically a contactless session. A link is sent to them where they can download their photos.”
