COVID-19 Safety Guidelines
Your safety and peace of mind is my top concern. Please read this list of safety precautions that I will be taking as I reopen business as of June 12, 2020.
Communicating with Clients
The majority of business is conducted online. Online communications are used to plan, schedule, confirm and deliver products. Very little work actually happens in person. With the exception of actually photographing you, the remainder of business can be conducted online, including payment processing.
Current Ontario guidelines recommend maintaining a distance of two meters and restricting all photography sessions to outdoors. I will wear a mask should you request I do so. At this time, extended family sessions are limited to 10 people. Unfortunately, I will not be offering in-home sessions including newborn sessions, but will offer outdoor family sessions with your newborn and give guidance on wrapping and posing so that I do not come into contact with your baby.
Cleaning & Sanitizing
I will be frequently sanitizing my hands before and during sessions. Any props that may be used will be cleaned and sanitized regularly and in between client sessions.
Preparing for Clients
I will be constantly monitoring myself and my family and will not hesitate to cancel all sessions if we feel unwell.
At this time sessions are limited to individuals, couples and families that have not travelled out of province and who are currently asymptomatic without any sign of symptoms in the previous two weeks. I will ask clients these questions beforehand via email for confirmation and again in person before conducting the session. No deposits will be requested at this time so that there is no pressure to keep your session if you are feeling unwell.
Monitoring Regional Restrictions
As our province reopens, I am monitoring restrictions as they change and develop. My plan of approach is a working document that will change to adhere to personal safety, regional guidelines and client concerns.
I look forward to safely capturing your special memories again.
