COVID-19 Health and Safety Policy for Newborn Sessions and Outdoor Maternity Photoshoots
Providing a safe and memorable photo session is my priority. So for that reason I have expanded my existing sanitation procedures to include my new COVID guidelines. Please keep in mind additional time may be needed for set up and sanitation .
Only parents and siblings, if they are being photographed, are allowed in the room during the session. At this time, no photos with other family members will be done.
If shooting an in- home newborn session, I will remove my shoes, change or cover my clothing, wash and sanitize my hands when I arrive.
Mask must be worn at all times by adults and children aged over five when not being photographed.
All props and hard surface items used during the session will be steamed cleaned and/or wiped down with Force of Nature which is an all-natural EPA-registered disinfectant & sanitizer that kills 99.9% of germs*, even Staph, MRSA, Norovirus, Influenza A, Salmonella, and Listeria. It’s on EPA’s list of Disinfectants for Use against SARS-CoV-2, the cause of COVID-19, before we begin the session. This includes my camera and any equipment used.
I will be wearing a face mask, washing my hands and using hand sanitizer throughout the session.
Parents or other household members may take a more active role during the session to position their baby in props and setups under guidance from me. This is to avoid being in close proximity to your newborn for longer than necessary
Where possible and weather permits, I would like to have windows open to provide air circulation in the room being used during the session.
Maternity sessions will only be provided outdoors and will require the assistance of a member of your household when needed.
