Family Photo Session in Essex COVID-19 Update

I am thrilled to announce that I am now officially back at work! I’ve had the pleasure of photographing two newborns so far and with more sessions booked in, I thought it is now the right time to let you know how my sessions are going to look post-lockdown (aka the COVID-19 update).

As I work closely with newborns and small children, it is my duty to ensure all clients are protected during their photo session with me. Therefore during every session I will be wearing a face mask and will sanitise my hands as soon as I enter your house. I don’t normally pose my clients/newborn babies, but sometimes a small adjustment is necessary (i.e. turning a baby towards the light source in order to obtain a well exposed photo). I will not touch your baby and will therefore ask you, the parent, to help me – if possible.

While I will do my utmost to use the extra safety measures to make our photo session as safe and enjoyable as possible, I will also kindly ask you to help me achieve that.

  1. If you or your child have been in contact with anyone who has displayed the COVID-19 symptoms (a cough, a fever and/or a loss of smell/taste) or if you feel unwell (even mildly) before your session, please contact me as soon as possible to reschedule. I understand that this may be an inconvenience but in this situation it is better to reschedule our session than to risk anyone’s health.
  2. If you become unwell within 7 days after your session, please let me know immediately even if you feel it is only mild.
  3. On the same note, if myself or any member of my household displays COVID-19 symptoms or feels unwell, I will have to postpone our session.

Please don’t let all of this scare you though! These are crazy times we live in right now but as long as we follow the rules and be respectful of each other, we can continue to work with each other. And please don’t hesitate to book a photo session – whether it’s a newborn, family or maternity one. It is easier to book it and rearrange it, if needs be, then to let the moment (and special time in your life) pass you by.

I am looking forward to hearing from you soon – let’s create some beautiful memories!
