COVID POLICY

The health and safety of you, your family and others is of upmost importance and the studio is government registered COVID-19 Safe with an active plan in place. Personally, I have completed the government infectious control COVID-19 training. 


In these unprecedented times Christmas 2020 will look slightly different. Traditional Santa photos won’t be the same, so I aim to provide you a safe way to celebrate and remember the festive season. I’ve taken the necessary steps to provide a COVID Safe studio space. Only one group will be allowed in the studio at one time. 


With the unknown landscape of COVID-19 I have looked to offer as much security for your session as possible. 


If circumstances due to COVID-19 don’t allow your family to attend your booking I will look to offer another session in the following weeks or offer a varied non Christmas family shoot at a later date. 


If regulations require shut down as a whole due to COVID-19 I will look to offer either a new non-Christmas mini session at a later date or a full refund. 


I am operating to government COVID-19 Safe working practices with regular sanitising between each shoot session, deep cleaning between clients and a COVID-19 plan in place. Stringent cleaning procedures are in place all the time. The floors are steam mopped after each session and to practise safe hygiene, disposable paper hand towels are available in the bathroom for your use, along with a bottle of sanitiser for using afterwards. A padded toilet training seat is available for your children's use along with disinfectant wipes. Bathroom facilities are also thoroughly cleaned after each session regardless of whether it is used or not. Props are washed and cleaned thoroughly during each session and studio surfaces are sprayed with Glen 20 before and after use. I also have a N-95 face mask that I will be wearing during the sessions until further notice. 


My booking system covers off logging contact information of all families and I will be working to hygiene etiquette. By booking, you take responsibility for you and your families health and safety and the provision of correct information in relation to COVID-19 hotspots. If at any time you feel correct protocol is not being followed please advise me. 


I aim to run a COVID-19 Safe shoot for everyone. By attending your booking, you agree to having all members attending to practice social distancing and hygiene etiquette while in the studio. It is your responsibility to immediately inform me if you have any symptoms of COVID-19 or are being tested for COVID-19 up to 14 days prior/following to your mini session. If you have any symptoms, are being tested or have been in contact with anyone being tested you must not participate in the mini session. As high priority during this time, please DO NOT come to a photo shoot if any member of your family is not 100% full health or has been in contact with someone who has or may be carrying the COVID-19 virus. 


The studio will close effective immediately at the first sign of any infection in myself or my family members.


The studio is currently a non-contact space. As much as I love a handshake or hug, in the interest of our health, please keep welcomes and farewells contact free.
