COVID-19 Studio Policies
I'm happy to say that my studio is open for business (with a few considerations to comply with the BC Covid-19 regulations). I am excited for you to return but want to let you know that things will look a little different when you arrive for your photo shoot.
There will be new personal protective measures in place for both clients and my team. We will be wearing a mask and in some circumstances a face shield during makeup applications. I will also be providing a poncho to wear over clothing during this period of extended close contact.
During consultations, social distancing will be adhered to as much as possible, and I ask that clients please wear a mask upon entry into my house. I will be wearing a mask as well until we can be safely apart. I will be taking everyone's temperatures as they enter and ask clients with a fever or who are sick to reschedule appointments. I am also providing sanitizer upon entry.
In order to be able to properly clean between clients and still be able to offer the use of my props and gowns, photoshoots will be spaced at least 3 days apart, and 10 days for newborns. All other appointments will also be staggered.
Due to this limited scheduling, photo sessions are booking several months in advance. Non-urgent sessions may be rescheduled as BC province regulations demand on a week by week basis. For time-sensitive sessions, like maternity and newborn, please contact me to see availability.
Surfaces and props will be cleaned between each client.
My request to you:
Please reschedule if you have a fever or are feeling unwell (call to cancel your appt.) I have a strict no sick policy for both clients, myself, and my team. Plus, doing a photoshoot when you feel unwell isn't all that fun anyways!
Visit only after you have completed any isolation or quarantine orders
Practice social distancing as much as possible.
Hand sanitizer will be provided upon entry into my house.
Come alone to your appointment unless you require assistance, or if you can't leave your baby with someone else. If more than one person will be photographed I will discuss distancing options when you come to the consultation. I will not be permitting anyone not being photographed in the studio at this time during a photoshoot.
Wearing a mask is now mandatory according to BC health regulations, except during the actual makeup application and photoshoot services. Masks will be provided in case you forget yours.
Thank you for your understanding and compliance during this time. I look forward to welcoming you back into my studio, and cannot wait to create art with you as my muse!
