What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a respiratory illness that can affect your lungs and airways.

It is spread through droplets generated when an infected person coughs,

sneezes or through salvia or nose discharge.

COVID-19 stands for Coronavirus disease 2019.


What are the symptoms of COVID-19?

The main symptoms of this virus is 

  • High temperature of 37c or more

  • A new continuous cough 

  • Loss of taste or smell

How can we keep safe?

Wash your hands frequently especially after touching touch points, with soap and water for at least 20 secs.

If soap and water isn’t available then you must use hand gel.

Ensure your catching sneezes and coughs in a tissue.

How will you keep us safe in your studio?

I have put a number of new working practices in place for sessions in the studio including adhering to the 2m rule and wearing masks as well as a number of other practices.

Please see my COVID SAFE IN THE STUDIO page.


Can we do anything to prepare before we come to the studio?

Ensuring you have clean clothes on that haven’t been worn in public places such as the shops or public transport, helps prevent the spread the virus as it can last on fabric for up to 3 days.

Cleaning your phone before you come is also something you can do but don't worry if you don't have electronic safe wipes. Jemma has some at the studio.


What if we feel poorly before the session?

If you feel poorly for any reason at all not just COVID-19 related symptoms

please rearrange your session immediately.



Do we have to wear a face mask? 

Yes, masks must be worn before entering the studio and kept on for the duration of the session. 

Follow this link for more information on how to put your mask on.

Will the studio be cleaned?

The studio, props, fabrics, backdrops, all touch points, camera and lighting equipment

will all be thoroughly cleaned with disinfectant on a regular basis and after EVERY session.


Will the fabrics you use for newborn sessions be cleaned? 

As normal anything that is used during a newborn session will be washed on a 40-60

wash with baby safe washing powder.

All headbands and props will be washed with disinfectant before being used again.


Can we pay in cash?

At this time unfortunately not. Payment details will be given once you book in and as normal

sessions must be paid before hand or on the day.


Will there be enough space to socially distance?

Yes the studio has enough space to adhere to the 2m distance guidance through out the session.

There will be designated areas that will be marked to make you aware of the 2m rule to protect everyone.


Will you be changing nappies during a newborn session?

At this current time I will no longer be changing nappies for parents until it is safe to do so (sorry!)

Can we still breast feed?

Of course breast feeding is always welcome!


Who can come with us to the session?

Only parents can come to a session unless you are coming to the studio for a family session.

If only one parent can come to the studio that would be even better but

I understand that sometimes this isn’t possible for certain reasons.
