Studio Cleaning Policy 

Our studio (including bathroom facilities) is deep cleaned at the start or end of every day using bleach/disinfectant/isopropyl alcohol. Before and after every session or viewing, all surfaces that could be touched are wiped down as are any props, toys or any other items used will be sanitised. All blankets/throws are will be washed between sessions. The studio premises are aired thoroughly in order to minimise any droplets in the air. 

Diary Management 

There is a one day period of time left between client appointments in order to enable the cleaning and sanitisation that is required between clients. It is also applicable to ensure that there is no contact between clients arriving and leaving their appointments. 

Sickness Policy 

Clients will be required to disclose if anyone coming to their session or viewing has had a fever or any other symptoms such as coughs, sickness or vomiting, or has been in contact with anyone displaying COVID-19 symptoms, suspected of having COVID-19 or has had a COVID-19 positive test result at least 24 hours before their appointment. These appointments will be cancelled and re-arranged at a later date with the deposit being carried over to the new booking. 

Self-Monitoring 

All photographers, staff and clients will be expected to monitor their own levels of health before coming into the studio. This includes checking temperatures and being mindful of COVID-19 symptoms. 

Hand Washing 

All photographers and staff will be required to wash their hands thoroughly for a minimum period of 20 seconds prior to every client appointment. Appropriate sanitising hand gels will be made available to clients on entry to the premises of which they will be requested to use. They will also be available in each room, i.e. studio, viewing room and bathroom.

Non-Medical Personal Protective Equipment 

Disposable gloves will be made available in the studio and these should be used where deemed necessary and appropriate.
