Cleaning & Safety

If you’ve had a photo session with me before, you know that safety is always my first priority. I will not jeopardize the safety of my client for a “shot.” The same goes for the health of my clients.

I spent years photographing newborns with delicate immune systems so many of the “new” disinfecting standards I’ve already been accustomed to.

Going forward, here are the changes I am making in the studio:

  • All in-person sessions, appointments, and interactions must be scheduled. No walk-ins!
  • Washing hands regularly before and after sessions.
  • Wearing a mask at all times when interacting with clients in-person.
  • Sanitation of all props, chairs, benches with which a client may come into contact with.
  • Sanitation of dressing facilities.
  • Sanitation of common areas including doorknobs (interior and exterior), countertops, pens, pencils, tablets, and monitors.
  • A minimum of 6 feet distance will be kept between myself and clients.
  • Will not be photographing more than a group of 10 people at one time until restrictions are lifted.
  • A minimum of 15 minutes in between in-studio sessions to disinfect surfaces.
  • Hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes are available to all clients entering and leaving the studio.
  • I will waive cancellation fees for illness-related cancellations on a case-by-case basis.

All of these are in addition to the daily cleaning and disinfecting of the studio, regardless of the number of people entering the studio.

I will keep these standards in place for as long as our governments recommend.

Mask Safety

I will wear a mask at all times when interacting with clients in-person but here are my mask guidelines for clients and visitors:

  • Photo sessions: Clients will not be asked to wear a mask before or during their photography session but will be asked to wear a mask when the photography is complete.
  • Non-photography Visits: Clients and visitors are asked to wear masks during all in-person appointments and visits.

Marketing is so important right now so let’s update your website and social media images for a fresh brand look!
