Coronavirus Information dated 22.02.21
All being well, Mini-Me Photography should be able to reopen the studio from April 12th 2021. Yey!
Pre-booked clients from Dec, Jan, Feb & March will be prioritised over new bookings. Firm dates will be given closer to the time.
New bookings are advised to book in your newborn shoot ASAP for May onwards due dates as until I have caught up on rescheduled shoots and the editing involved, I can only take on a maximum of 4 per month.
Coronavirus Information dated 11.01.21
Still under the National Lockdown measures and closed for business.
Clients who have missed their shoots entirely will be prioritised as soon as I'm able to open again.
If the window of opportunity has gone, ie. a maternity session and no longer pregnant, or a newborn who is now over 10 weeks old, you will have the option to move your booking to another milestone or a different type of shoot.

Coronavirus Information: dated 31.08.20
The Studio will be opening on a part time basis from Mid July 2020 for all age groups except for babies under 6 month olds. Newborns will be from September one per week only.
The good news is that my studio is a separate building from my home. To minimise the risks to both parties, I have carried out a risk assessment and have moved the studio layout around to accommodate a good distance between you and I. It is possible to photograph 2 metres apart for most shoots with parents assistance by keeping baby on the backdrop.
Newborn shoots, I will not be able to be socially distanced with baby, if you are wanting the style shown in my portfolio as it is impossible for me to position baby safely without being close up, face to face contact.
Here are the Covid Secure Precautions:
There will be only one client per day, 72 hours apart so therefore reduced capacity.
The Studio will be deep cleaned and sanitised, prior to and after your appointment.
The windows will be open to allow air circulation.
Clients will be required to leave their shoes at the door.
Hand washing is required upon entry, drying with disposable towel provided.
Hand Sanitiser is available for small babies.
The WC is available to you in an emergency and will also be deep cleaned after.
I will only be using props, outfits, and accessories that can be washed at 60 degrees or UV light sanitised, therefore not everything will be available.
I will be wearing clean clothing and a medical grade mask or other face covering.
Please come dressed ready for your appointment.
People not being photographed will be required to bring a face covering or I can provide a disposable mask available at a small fee to cover the cost.
Ideally one parent per family and no spectators.
Bring your own refreshments and drinks.
Please take all rubbish home.
In person “Viewing and Ordering sessions” may be substituted with password protected online galleries instead.
Any mixed households who are not in your bubble, it's location shoots only.
You will be required to fill out a disclaimer form, with wording to affect of:
I acknowledge the contagious nature of the coronavirus / COVID-19 and that the government and many other health authorities still recommend to practise social distancing.
I also acknowledge that Mini-Me Photography (MMP) has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of the COVID-19. I further acknowledge that MMP cannot guarantee that I will not become infected. I understand the risk of becoming exposed to and / or infected by COVID-19 may result from the actions, omissions or negligence of myself and others, but not limited to other clients and their families.
I voluntarily seek services provided by MMP and agree to comply with all set procedures whilst attending my appointment.
I can confirm that:
I am not experiencing any symptoms such as cough, high temperature, unexplained muscle pain, sore throat, loss of sense of smell or taste, difficulty breathing, now or in the past 15 days.
I have NOT travelled to any high impacted area or outside of the UK area within the past 15 days.
I DO NOT believe I have been exposed to someone with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 within the past 15 days.
I have NOT been diagnosed with Coronavirus myself OR date of positive test ___________
I am following all government guidelines as much as possible.
I hereby release and agree to hold MMP harmless from waive on behalf of myself and others attending and any clauses of action, claims, demands, damages, costs, expenses and compensation for damage or loss to myself and / or property that may be caused by any act, or failure to act of the studio, or that any otherwise arise in any way in connection with any services received by MMP.
Anyone showing signs of illness will be asked to return home. A medical grade thermometer is available in the studio, but I am asking all clients to check in the morning of the appointment and not attend if showing any symptoms as my own little boy is in the vulnerable category and if he falls sick, not only would this be a potentially life threatening for him but as a lone parent I would then not have any form of income and all of my bookings would need to be cancelled.
Session fees are transferable but not refundable and by making a booking you accept that all shoot dates and pre bookings may need to be postponed if government force closure to non essential business's again. If we go back into lockdown, rebooking will prioritised in this order -
Maternity sessions, Newborns with the oldest newborns given priority first dates, Cakesmashes, Family Shoots, then any other shoots.
This page will be updated if any significant changes occur.
