01 staying safe & making memories

As of the 15th June 2020 photography studios have been allowed to reopen providing measures are put into place to promote a ‘COVID-19 Secure’ environment for all. 


So whilst I have been on maternity leave, I have been working hard behind the scenes to put  extra measures in place so that I can successfully reopen from the 5th July as planned. 


Extra measures implemented are as follows: 


  • Studio layout change
    To allow for social distancing measures to be in place


  • Limited attendees
    Given the size of the studio, only those being photographed are to attend the session where possible


  • Social distancing in place 
    Social distancing, in line with the current guidelines, is to be partaken by all parties where possible


  • Limited contact 
    In the event contact is required, face masks (unless being photographed) and hand hygiene must be in place at all times 


  • Face Masks provided for all
    Face masks are provided and are advised to be worn by all parties and removed when being photographed (excluding babies of course)


  • Client hand hygiene
    Hand sanitiser and hand washing facilities are available for use upon arrival and throughout the session


  • Photographer hand hygiene 
    As always, regular use of hand sanitiser and thorough hand washing will continue to take place before, during and after each session


  • No shoes in the studio
    Shoes are to be left in the hallway before entering the studio

  • All props and fabrics sanitised 
    All props and fabrics used throughout the session will undergo a thorough cleaning process before next use 


  • Studio deep clean
    The studio will receive a deep clean before and after each session


  • COVID-19 symptoms or contact
    On the morning of the session, all parties must ensure they are not experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, have been in contact with anyone with the virus within 14 days or are currently required to isolate for any reason. The session must be rearranged if this occurs. 


Whilst the cleanliness of my studio and the safety of all parties has always been the most important factor of my business, the above changes have been put in place to ensure the continued safety of both your little people and my own (and us adults of course). 


Lets not allow COVID-19 to stop us capturing your beautiful memories; with the new safety measures at the forefront of our minds those beautiful images are still very much possible. 


In the event you have any questions – please do get in touch.
