YOUR SAFETY

CORONAVIRUS POLICIES & PROCEDURES

Your safety is my first priority, therefore I have had to make some changes due to COVID-19. Please read below for details.

As government guidelines now allow small groups to meet in doors I have begun using my dedicated indoor studio space once again, however I am still taking steps for your safety, please read below.

BEFORE ARRIVAL

I ask all families coming to me to complete an online health declaration 24 hours prior to a session. This confirms that I do not have symptoms and you do not have symptoms. 

ON ARRIVAL

 

When you arrive I ask you to call my mobile. I will then meet you at my front door and lead you straight into the studio space. This is a comfy space where you are able to sit and put your things down.

I will ask if you could all sanitise your hands at my sanitising station, please feel free to use this at any time during your session and when you leave.  

THE SESSION

All sessions are completed with the use of PPE, I wear a face mask for the whole time you are with me and my contact with your family will be kept to a minimum.

 

Due to space restrictions I ask that no guests attend sessions, only those directly involved.

As I have a home studio I confirm that during sessions my family are not present in the house where ever possible.

MY PROCEDURES

  • All surfaces in the session space cleaned before and after each session.

  • Maximum of 1 session per day.

  • Maximum of 2 sessions each week.

  • I wear PPE and use hand sanitiser throughout the session.

  • All outfits, props and fabrics cleaned before and after each session.  Where this isn’t possible they will be unused for at least 3 days according to guidance regarding fabric transference.

  • I will keep a distance of 2 meters where possible (when helping with posing this won’t be possible but I will be wearing PPE and will endeavour not to touch people.)

  • If I am feeling at all unwell on the day of the session or up to 7 days prior, your session will be rescheduled.

  • The studio door and windows will be open where possible to allow extra ventilation.

 

WHAT I ASK YOU TO DO

  • Please do NOT come to the studio if you are feeling at all unwell or have felt unwell in the last 7 days. I am more than happy to rearrange your shoot and session fees will be valid for 12 months.

  • I do encourage use of face masks when you are not in front of the camera.

  • Please use hand sanitiser on entry and you are welcome to take a mask to wear while waiting for your photographs to be taken.

  • Only parents to attend the session, no siblings or extended family or friends please.

  • I will only be using props and outfits of my own for newborn and sitter shoots. Please do not bring items from home unless discussed in advance.

  • Complete a short online health declaration within 24 hours before the session.
