Covid Safety Policy

Additional protection during the pandemic

The safety of my clients, especially my littlest ones, is always my first priority, be it the set up of my studio, safety in posing, hygiene standards or general health.

With the current pandemic, I have taken additional precautionary measures over and above my usual practices including:

  • Limited numbers of face-face appointments
  • Initial consultation meetings to take place via phone/video call
  • Fewer appointments to allow for through disinfection of studio in between clients
  • Restriction on number of attendees per photoshoot
    • Maternity, newborn and milestone photoshoots restricted to the child, siblings and parents (no grandparents, cousins, aunties, etc)
    • Family photoshoots are restricted to one household/bubble
  • Face masks to be worn by all attendees over age 11 other than whilst being photographed
  • Prior to attending the studio, clients will be asked to confirm that none of the attendees:
    • Have tested positive for Covid-19 in the last seven days
    • Are waiting for a Covid-19 test or result
    • Have been contacted by NHS Test and Trace Services and asked to self-isolate
    • Have any of the recognised symptoms of Covid-19 including:
      • New, continuous cough
      • High temperature or fever
      • Loss of or change in sense of smell or taste
    • Live with or have been in contact with someone who has either tested positive for Covid-19 or had symptoms of Covid-19 in the last 14 days

And in the event that any of these conditions apply, the appointment will be rescheduled.

  • Upon arrival, clients will be asked to have their temperatures checked with my IR thermometer, sanitise hands and ensure face masks are in place
  • Windows in the studio throughout the appointment will be open to allow ventilation and air circulation
  • Hand sanitiser will be available at all times for attendees and the photographer

In accordance with my usual practice, please be reassured that between all clients:

  • The studio will be cleaned/disinfected
  • All outfits, backdrops and props used will be washed/disinfected
  • Should I have any symptoms of illness I will reschedule any appointments
