Hey, what a wild crazy ride this Covid thing has been so far.
I am regularly dealing with tiny babies and vulnerable pregnant and new mamas; this part of the reason why I am fully vaccinated + boosted against Covid 19.
The next element is my cosy High Street studio. The nature of studio photography means close contact, so I ensure items and surfaces and cleaned and sanitised after every client.
I do a RAT test on myself before each maternity or newborn client (and others at request/discretion).
I have a super firm illness policy, people displaying symptoms of illness are required to reschedule. There are no fees for rescheduling due to illness. If signs of illness (runny nose, coughing, repeated sneezing etc) are present in clients, I reserve the right to end the session immediately with no refund, so it's a much better option for everyone to just reschedule. Easy as.
I wear a mask for all studio sessions for the safety of the wee babe and new mamas and family. I do ask that we keep people in the studio to a minimum, and family images will be completed first so any siblings can head back home or off to play xx
