Much as I hate to harp on about Covid on my website as we’re all bombarded with stuff about it and I like to keep this as a positive space, I do need to give you a bit of info on mask wearing at the studio.
It’s a bit of a tricky one in some regards – newborns are straightforward, so let’s talk about that one first. I’ll be wearing a mask (plus apron, gloves, clean clothes and good layer of sanitiser) at a newborn session and I’m going to ask you to wear one too. We’ll be six feet apart but we will be sharing the space for potentially a couple of hours so it just makes sense to take the precaution while we need to. Plus newborns really don’t care about what we look like, it’s older babies that make the situation a bit muddy.
Some older babies can find it tricky to relate to people in masks which makes getting good photos difficult. This effect is going to be exaggerated by the lockdown and some babies being naturally nervous about meeting new people as it’s a skill they haven’t had to practice in a while. Given that good photos are why you are visiting, I’m going to leave it up to you as to what you’d like to do – there will be space on the form where you choose your options for the photo shoot to indicate what your preference is. We’ll still be remaining socially distant, the room will be ventilated and the sessions are pretty short.
Obviously you don’t need to wear a mask if you’re having your photo taken, I’m all for capturing the moment but there is some stuff that we don’t necessarily want to include.
You can read my full Covid policy here and shout if you have questions and I’m always happy to help.
