Back in March 2020, the government announced a lawful lockdown to minimise the risk of transmission of Covid-19. This meant the closure of my business, along with the cancellations and rescheduling of planned maternity, newborn, family, commercial, milestone and first birthday sessions. This brought frustration, sadness and disappointment to all my incredible clients, including myself.
We have all been doing an incredible job keeping to the rules and doing our part to keep as many people safe as possible.
We are now in a position to be returning to what may be described as a new normal.
Therefore I am pleased to announce that I will be reopening from the 15th of June 2020 to offer Maternity photoshoots to clients. As the lockdown restrictions lift, I will be able to consider more, slowly reintroducing other sesssions. I anticipate the possibility of being able to shoot newborn sessions from the beginning of July. With the social distancing ruling still in place, this means that to safely continue business, I need to have provisions in place to minimise and avoid contact wherever possible. The plans are as follows:
I will only allow a small number of customers in my studio during sessions.
Please remove footwear and outdoor wear (coats) upon entry and placing them in designated areas.
This includes the use of PPE (personal protective equipment) handwashing access and the use of alcohol handgels/sanitisers, antibacterial moisturisers to protect your skin and minimise transmission from touch.
A process for cleaning between sessions and a space of 24 hours between clients.
All items of clothing worn that belong to my maternity studio will be disinfected and washed after use.
At the moment, refreshments will not be provided and I request that you bring your own (water, small snacks).
Any furnishings that are not covered with covers, hard props and flooring will be steam cleaned after use.
High contact areas such as door handles will be disinfected after sessions.
Face masks will be used during the sessions due to the space we are in.
2m distance will be kept as much as possible during the session (studio length 6m).
Please only bring what you need to the session, to keep the space clear and clutter free.
Finally, if you or any member of your household has been unwell with the following:
– Sore throat
– generally feeling unwell
or, has been in contact with someone who has, then please let me know as soon as possible, your session will be rescheduled.
If you want to enquire about booking in a maternity session or want to know more, please use the enquiry form below.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for general enquiries about photoshoots in Birmingham.
I will be in touch with clients who’s sessions were not able to go ahead over the coming days this week!
Looking forward to getting back into the studio to capture some beautiful baby bumps for maternity photographs and prepare for the following newborn baby photoshoot sessions ahead.
