In preparation for the possibility of being able to open the studio at the end of July 2020 providing the Government guidelines don't change, I have created this page to clarify in detail how I will be working to keep myself and you safe.
This page will be updated regularly with any new information or procedures on which I will have to enforce to ensure I am following the Government COVID19 guidelines properly.
I appreicate this is a very unusual time for us all, and not being able to work in the same way as before will be very hard, as the type of photography session will also be very limited, as will the amount of people I can have in my studio at any one time, due to my studio being in my home. Availability will also be a lot less so I would like to thank you in advance for your patience during this time.
STUDIO GUIDELINES AND PRECAUTIONS FROM END OF JULY 2020:
BEFORE - Handwashing before and after a session has always been essential, as was washing props such as outfits and fabrics between each session, and a good clean of the studio.
ADDITONAL PRECAUTIONS - Hand sanitizer available for clients and myself to use, face masks and only one client per day.
Please read the following before coming to the studio, as this page might be updated regularly with new information. To keep myself and you safe the following must be strictly followed.
ILLNESS - If someone in you're household has been unwell in the last 72 hours, please rearrange you're session (no extra charge unless you have had to rearrange a cake smash booking, please contact me for details). Please note, I will also postpone a session if myself, or a member in my household also has been unwell.
PAYMENT - To book a session, a non-refundable booking fee must be made, and this is done via bank transfer. Going forward, all remaining balances MUST be paid via bank transfer a few days (or once your little one has arrived, for newborn sessions) before you're session is due (even if you have to re-schedule, remaining balance MUST be paid please see my T&C about booking fees/session fees) no cash will be exchanged.
LIMITED SESSIONS - Sessions will be limited for studio sessions, I can't safely social distance a family in my studio for family portraits unfortunately, I will be in touch when I can safely have large families in the studio again. For now I am focusing on doing location sessions for these types of sessions which can easily keep us 2 metres apart. Alternatively, if you are happy to wait for your family studio session you can and I will let you know as soon as I can safely do this for you.
NEWBORN SESSIONS - Only mum & baby will be allowed in the studio during the session. If you would like sibling/family shots done, these will be done at the end of your session and I ask that dad or a close family member/friend brings siblings.
PORTRAITS - From the above, you can appreicate that the sessions I can offer, especially in my studio are very limited. I mainly photography newborn, sitters, cake smashes and young children in the studio. Providing I can open from the end of July, I will only be able to have one child and one parent in to be able to follow social distancing safely.
- STUDIO ARRIVAL -
