COVID-19 Safety Precautions

 

We are in uncertain times, and everything from going to the store to planning childcare takes complex thought and diligent execution. Planning a photography session can feel a bit overwhelming, too. So, I’ve put together an outline of Covid-19 related safety precautions for my clients. Here’s the most important thing you need to know: The health and safety of my clients is my #1 priority.

Because of that, I have put into place new protocols that are solely based on science and data to protect you, protect me and help to mitigate the spread of the virus.

I am closely following the guidelines put forth by the Center of Disease Control in order to make your photography session safe and enjoyable. Read below for specifics on the session protocol and please contact me with any questions or concerns.

Health Measures
My family and I are practicing social distancing and we wear masks when in public. I will be taking my temperature before each session. If I am even slightly concerned about my health (or that of my family) I will postpone your session for a later date at no charge to you.

Outdoor Sessions
Unless otherwise arranged, all sessions will be held outdoors in order to minimize contact and capitalize on fresh air. Good thing for us, Southern California has no shortage of stunning outdoor locations for us to choose from!

Masks & Gloves
I will be wearing disposable gloves and a mask for the duration of your session. Whenever possible, I will keep a 6 feet distance from you, as recommended by the CDC. I will also have hand sanitizer with me and available for use throughout your session.

No Personal Contact Policy
As much and I love and wish I could give each of you a giant hug or high five – I will refrain from any person-to-person contact during our session.

Sick Policy
Here’s where I need your help. Please acknowledge that you will observe a strict sick policy. This means that you will contact me as soon as you or anyone in your party tests positive for Covid-19 or feels ill within 14 days of your session. Symptoms include but are not limited to: fever, cough, shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, loss of smell/taste, etc. You also acknowledge that you will notify me if you come into contact with any known/suspected exposure to Covid-19 or exposure to anyone experiencing the symptoms listed above.

Stopping the spread of this pandemic takes a collective group effort. Thank you for owning your part! I hope these safety precautions ease your mind and help you to look forward to your session! I know I’m looking forward to capturing some gorgeous images for you.
