Every client is required to wash and sanitise their hands upon arrival and before leaving with the hand sanitiser provided.
No footwear is to be worn inside the studio by neither the photographer nor the client.
Your photographer will thoroughly clean and sanitise their hands, and wear a face mask and latex free gloves during the whole session. Masks will also be provided for all the clients to be worn throughout the session (with an exception of when the photos of yourself are being taken)
All photography items and props will be sanitised prior to your session and all props used during your session will be thoroughly washed and re-santised afterwards and disposable items will be used when possible.
All surfaces will be wiped thoroughly with hospital grade disinfectant before and after each client according to the manufacturer's directions.
Package images will be downloadable from a password protected Online Gallery and no in-person viewing sessions will take place to limit in-person contact between the photographer and the client.
