COVID-19 Health & Safety Protocols
The health, safety and welfare of our staff & our customers is of paramount importance to us.
Customers are required to disclose if anyone coming to the session has had a fever or any other symptoms such as coughs, sickness or vomiting or has been in contact with anyone displaying Covid- 19 symptoms, suspected of having Covid-19 or has had a Covid-19 positive test result at least 24 hours before their session. Appointments will be re-arranged, at no cost.
All photographers/staff and customers are required to monitor their temperatures and health before commencing the shoot. Disposable gloves and masks will be available and these should be used as deemed necessary and appropriate.
All photographers and staff will be required to thoroughly wash their hands for a minimum of 20 seconds before all sessions. Appropriate sanitising hand gels will be made available and customers requested to use these as appropriate.
All photographers and staff agree that every effort will be made to keep the 2m social distancing advice at all times where possible. This includes shaking hands and moving / adjusting hair or clothes. Parents may be asked to help move their children and babies as requested by the photographer. During the portrait session instructions to the clients will be given from the distance stipulated by and in accordance with the social distancing rules.
Due to the restrictions imposed by social distancing, it may not be appropriate to offer usual sessions and poses, particularly with regard to newborn and maternity sessions. To carry out these types of sessions where social distancing may not be possible due to safety, a bespoke policy will be put in place between the photographer and the customer.
