COVID SAFE AT THE STUDIO
I have put a number of safety measures in place to ensure everyone coming into the studio stays safe.
I have researched safe working practices for my line of work and followed all government guidelines.
The following information applies to everyone for every type of session.
Following these new working practices helps stop the spread of coronavirus and ensures everyone is kept safe through out their time in the studio.
Not following these safety measures will result in you being asked to leave the studio.
Prior to your visit
Ensure you don't have any symptoms of covid-19 and if you do feel unwell with the following symptoms then please rearrange your session
If you have been in contact with anyone who has covid-19 or you are isolating then please rearrange.
Wearing clean clothes to the studio that haven't been worn in public yet such as at the shops or on public transport.
Avoid travelling to high risk areas, abroad and mixing in large groups before your session.
Only parents can attend the session (unless your coming for a family session) and must be from the same house hold.
If just one of you can come to the session this would be greatly appreciated but understand that sometimes this may not be possible.
Download the NHS Covid-19 test and trace app ready to scan the QR code.
At the studio
Scan the QR code for the studio via the venue check-in section within the app.
Wash your hands with the hand gel provided before entering the studio.
Make sure you have your face mask on before entering the studio.
Jemma will provide you with special electronic device wipes, please clean your devices with these wipes and place your phone in the tray on the table.
You are free to use your phone through out the session but please put the phone back down in the tray to reduce contact with the surfaces around you.
The studio has designated marked areas to reduce movement throughout the session and to adhere to the 2m rule.
Please stay within these areas as much as you can unless going to the toilet.
Please do your best to keep children within these designated areas. This may be harder for younger children so it may be best for one adult to take them home or to the local park.
If this isn't possible maybe bring some entertainment for them whilst they wait.
When using the toilet please make sure you have washed your hands with warm water and soap before leaving the bathroom.
Paper towels have been provided to dry your hands with.
I ask at this time if you could please take your rubbish and nappies away with you and dispose of them sensibly.
Bin bags will be provided
No cash payments are being accepted during this time.
Digital payments via bank transfer or
PayPal (friends and family) only.
What Jemma is doing to help keep you safe
The studio, props, fabrics, backdrops, all touch points, camera and lighting equipment
is all thoroughly deep cleaned with disinfectant and hot water on a regular basis and after EVERY session.
Any clothes or fabrics used during the session are washed after use on a 40-60 cycle with newborn recommended washing powder.
The studio is well ventilated after every session for a minimum of 30 minutes.
Jemma will be wearing a face mask through out the session.
I have a new fresh clean uniform on for every session.
Hair is tied back.
I will adhere to the 2metres distance unless posing newborns and families for family sessions.
I will be reducing the time spent touching newborns.
Gloves will be worn during the naked posing part of a newborn session.
