COVID-19 Safety Precautions, Client Self Evaluation and Assumption of Risk

Safety Precautions:

We have implemented the following preventative measures to keep our staff and clientele safe during our photo sessions.

  • A reduction of the number of sessions each day to just one client in order to limit the flow in and out of the studio. 
  • We recommend coming to your shoot alone unless:
    • You feel you need help from a friend that would be considered essential.
    • You are a parent accompanying a minor to the session. 
    • You are being photographed as part of a couple or group.
  • All surfaces within the studio are sanitized after each session and prior to entry of our new clientele the following day. Should we be shooting for a corporate client with a number of employees being photographed over the course of a day then we will stagger each person allowing for time in between to appropriately clean between sessions.
  • While being photographed our clientele will remove their mask and no other individual will get within a 6 ft radius of them without a face covering. 
  • Physical contact to fix hair, clothing or makeup will be carried out by our hair/makeup artists who will have their face covering in place throughout the session.
