Studio Pandemic Safety Policies
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we ask that all clients carefully review and adhere to the following safety guidelines to ensure the health and well being of your family, ours, and our community.
Masks & Face Coverings
Unless you are fully vaccinated against Covid-19, face coverings are required to enter the studio and must remain on, covering your nose & mouth for the duration of your session. Masks may only be removed briefly when you are being photographed. Your photographer is fully vaccinated and will be wearing a mask when working in close proximity to your newborn.
Please wash your hands prior to coming to the studio and sanitize them upon entering the studio. You may wash your hands using soap and water in the bathroom down the hall. You may also use our hand sanitizer. Your photographer will disinfect with hand sanitizer throughout the duration of your session.
Clean Studio & Props
Our fabric backdrops, swaddles, and clothes are laundered after every session. We are also putting extra emphasis on disinfecting and "airing out" the studio between sessions. Disinfectant products including Clorox wipes & Lysol spray are used to clean hard surfaces including door knobs and props.
Immediate Family Only
In order to minimize germs in our studio, only immediate family members who are being photographed will be allowed to attend sessions. Anyone who does not currently live in your home with you cannot be present in the studio. For newborn sessions, siblings will need to leave the studio as soon as their portion of the session is finished.
Extra Time Between Sessions
Whenever feasible, newborn studio sessions will be scheduled at least 24 hours apart to allow for thorough "airing out" between clients. Studio priority will be given to our tiniest clients.
Please Cancel If...
If you or anyone in your household has any symptom of ANY illness or been exposed to someone with COVID-19 within 14 days, please reschedule your session. Our photographer will reschedule the session if she has any symptoms of illness, or has been in contact with someone with Covid-19 within 14 days of your session.
We are still practicing physical distancing during our outdoor sessions. Please allow 6' feet of spacing between yourself and your photographer. If you're "blowing raspberries" or being silly behind us to try to elicit smiles, please be cognizant that your photographer in front of you is getting all your spittle - and I assure you, she does not want any of it. :-) Sharing your vaccination status with your photographer is optional, but will help her make decisions during your session that will keep her, her family members, and the rest of our clients safe from the spread of Covid-19.
All of our photographers are fully vaccinated, however we are still more than happy to wear a face covering during your session if it makes you feel more at ease. Just ask! I promise we'll have one in our pocket that we're happy to wear!
If you are fully vaccinated, you are welcome to remove your mask during the entirety of your session. If you are not vaccinated, we ask that you please put your mask on when you're not actively being photographed. Please reschedule your session if you or anyone in your household has any symptoms of ANY illness or may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 within 14 days of your session.
