Hi Everyone! As you already know.. the governor of Idaho has put in place a 21 day stay in shelter order for all Idahoans. In attempts to combat the spread of COVID19 in Idaho, citizens have been asked to stay home. For business owners, we have been instructed to close our doors for 21 days… unless our business is classified as an “essential service”.
Leap Photography falls into the “non-essential” business category. With that said, my studio doors are temporarily closed to the public. For the next 21 days I will not be photographing any type of session, wedding or event. This does not mean I am going out of business. Over the next 21 days I will only be corresponding with clients via the phone, social media or emails. No in person meetings.
As you can imagine this 21 day stay at home order is affecting many small business owners tremendously. Especially those who work in more service based industries such as hair stylists, restaurant owner and personal trainers.
If you are able to support any of these type of businesses during the next 21 days… I encourage you to do so. Purchase a gift card, order take out or see if your favorite clothing boutique has an online storefront. If you’re not sure how to help your favorite businesses… reach out to them and ask.
If you would like to support Leap Photography, you can do any one of the following:
- Purchase a gift card
- Prepay for a photo session to be scheduled at a later date
- Purchase prints from a previous photo session you’ve had with me
- Purchase an item from my Etsy shop
- Product photography. If you are a business owner… send products to me that you need photographed. I can help you with images to update your website, Etsy shop and social media feeds.
- Business – Building Photos: I can photograph the exterior and interior of your business. These photos can be used on your “Google My Business” listing or on your website.
- Review Leap Photography on Google
However you decide to spend you money in this time of social distancing… I strongly encourage you to shop local!
Doing so not only helps keep tax dollars within your community… it helps a small business owner pay for essentials to support their family.
