Coronavirus Information: dated 17.07.20
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. Personally, I feel it may be potentially unsafe to photograph newborn babies at this stage and unfortunately, I do not have any childcare to allow a 4 hour shoot, until my own little boy is back in school in September.
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.
Therefore, I am able to accommodate some shoots and also outdoor photography.
Here are some of the precautions that I have put in place to ensure I am Covid Secure.
There will be only one client per day 72 hours apart.
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 outside 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.
I will only be using props, outfits, and accessories that can be washed at 60 degrees or UV light sanitised.
I will be wearing clean clothing and a medical grade mask.
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 if required.
Please take all rubbish home.
There will be a disclaimer that you will be required to fill out prior to your appointment which will state that you agree that:
You are 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.
You have NOT travelled to any high impacted area or travelled outside of the UK within the past 15 days.
You DO NOT believe that you have been exposed to someone with a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 within the past 15 days.
You have NOT been diagnosed with Coronavirus yourself.
You are following all government guidelines as much as possible.
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.
Session fees are transferable but not refundable. If we go back into lockdown, rebooking will prioritised by date order.
This page will be updated when more news follows. Thank you for reading and I do hope I get to see you some day.
