The studio is now open for business again after a 2 month “break”. I can’t wait to see you all again and to start creating gorgeous portraits for you.
Things won’t quite be like “before” with certain health and safety measures being implemented to protect everyone. These safety measures conform with those recommended by the FFPMI (Fédération Française de Photographie et des Métiers de l'Image), the French professional photographers federation of which I am a member.
Access to the studio will be by appointment only. Please contact me via the contact me page or on 06 67 71 54 28 to make an appointment.
Pre-shoot consultations will be held virtually. This planning appointment, where we discuss what you’re looking for from your portrait session and go over style, shoot location and other options, will take place virtually using Skype or Zoom (for video calls) or by phone if you prefer.
The studio will be aired out and disinfected after each client.
On the day of the portrait session, or any time in the 2 weeks leading up to your portrait session, if you or a member of your family have Covid-19 symptoms (cough, fever, sore throat etc), please contact me to reschedule your portrait session.
Only people participating in the portrait session will be allowed into the studio.
Please come to the studio wearing a mask. Children under 5 years are not required to wear a mask. You will, of course, remove your mask during the portrait session. The mask is also mandatory when attending the photo viewing session (where you discover the photos from your portrait session) or for any other visit to the studio.
I will be wearing a mask for all studio appointments and will be regularly be disinfecting my hands with hand sanitiser. The mask may be removed outdoors if it is possible to maintain appropriate social distancing. While it may feel a little less friendly than usual meeting with me wearing a mask, you can be sure that I’ll be smiling even if you can’t see it.
Please sanitise your hands with hydroalcoholic gel upon arrival at the studio. Hand sanitiser will be available throughout the session and it is recommended that you sanitise your hands again as you leave.
Studio gowns and accessories, used during maternity, newborn and glamour portrait sessions, will be disinfected after each client (as per usual).
Studio samples will continue to be available to clients. Some will be able to be handled while others will be not able to be touched. Any samples that have been handled by clients will be quarantined.
In the event that these health and safety procedures are not respected or if you (or other members of your entourage at the studio) present symptoms of Covid-19 during your shoot, your portrait session may be cancelled without reimbursement of the session fee.
Thank you for your understanding and for respecting these health and safety measures which are in place to protect everyone.
As usual, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding these measures.
