Unfortunately due to the Covid-19 virus, I have had to make some changes to the way I work. These are outlined below.

If you or any members of your family feel unwell, or have been ill within 7 days prior to your photo shoot, you must contact me to reschedule the session. This includes symptoms of Covid-19, or any cold/sickness bug. I have a young family and work with newborns, so cannot take any risks to my health, or to that of my family and other clients.

It is helpful to try to keep baby awake prior to their shoot. Giving them a bath is a good way to do this, tickling their toes, speaking to them, letting them kick with nappy off. They may sleep in the car on the way, but this will help to tire them out a little for their shoot.

If you can bring along a dummy, even if you don’t plan to use one again, it can help to soothe them for the session. Don’t worry, this won’t interfere with breastfeeding.

Please bring along extra milk as baby may well feed more during their shoot, this is normal and perfectly fine.

I would advise you to wear layers as the studio will be warm for the duration of the session. This way, you can easily take one off if you get too hot!

Regretfully I am unable to offer drinks/snacks/toilet facilities at present. I am so sorry! Please feel free to bring along your own drinks and cold snacks. The session may last up to 4 hours, so you can bring along a magazine if you want to. Some parents even have a nap!

There is normally plenty of on road parking on my road, so parking shouldn’t be an issue.

Normally you will be greeted at my front door, led through my house and out into the Studio which is in my garden. Unfortunately, for the time being, I am having to ask that Clients enter my property through the back gate. Please ring my door bell and wait at a safe distance for me to open the gate.

You will come down the side of my house and directly into my garden. Please be aware that this is a bit narrow due to my garden shed. It is on the cards to be moved soon!

Once you have reached my studio, you will need to place your shoes in the designated purple box. It has always been a NO SHOE ZONE in the studio, but I will be firm in enforcing this now.

Once inside, please use the supplied antibacterial hand gel. Please use this as much as you like throughout the session. I have masks available for you to use, or you may use your own. I do ask that you wear a mask when not being photographed.

I will be wearing a mask throughout your session.

Props are picked and sanitised prior to your arrival. If you have specified colour choices on your questionnaire, I will have these out ready for you.

If your baby is an older newborn (over 2 weeks), then we will most likely start with wrapped shots (wrapping baby settles them usually, as they feel cosy and safe). Hopefully getting some unwrapped shots as we go on, but as always my sessions are baby-led so we will go with what they want to do!

Due to the nature of the session and for safety, I will need to hold and pose your baby, but I will be using antibacterial hand gel regularly throughout the session, plus wearing a mask.

Older children will need to be supervised to limit touching objects in the studio. Please do bring along a book, tablet, snacks etc for them to keep them entertained. If this is not possible, they will need to wait outside the studio/my property with another adult until we are ready for them to come in.

Please can all family members come ready dressed in your chosen outfits for the photographs. At present I cannot supply them or facilitate changing. Neutral colours, white/black/grey, along with jeans or black leggings work really well for the shoot, but of course clothing choice is down to you. I would advise to avoid clashing, heavily patterned clothing, or items with logos on, but they are your photos so it is your choice entirely.

You will be invited back to the studio to view your images approximately 2-3 weeks after your session. You will view them on a monitor screen and I am on hand to answer any questions, and to assist with your order if you want me to.

Once your USB and prints are ready, they will need to be collected socially distanced or posted for an extra fee. Please note I do not post wall art or albums, so they must be collected from the studio.

1. Please only bring with you the family members who will be photographed.

2. Ring house doorbell on arrival (this is regularly sanitised) and stand back away from gate for me to let you in, whilst keeping a safe distance from each other.

3. The studio is in my garden, so please wear sensible footwear and be aware of the steps.

4. Come ready dressed in your clothes to be photographed.

5. Shoes to be put in designated purple box immediately on arrival.

6. Hand sanitiser to be used on arrival, throughout as needed and on leaving.

7. I will be wearing a mask throughout, and ask you to do so when not being photographed. This rule does not apply to young children or babies.

8. The session can take between 2-4 hours, this varies depending on the willingness of baby and how settled they are.

9.  The seats, door handles, floor and all surfaces are disinfected before and after your session.

10. Sessions are only one per day, and at least 24 hours left between all sessions.

12. Props and fabrics are thoroughly disinfected and used on a rotation basis.

13. No toilet facilities or refreshments provided. I am so sorry!

14. It should go without saying, but sessions will only take place if you are all symptom free. You will be asked to leave and reschedule if anyone arrives ill (this is my usual rule anyway)
