Covid-19 | Safety and Precautions

*Nurse approved!* Read the testimonial of a Mass General nurse’s experience at her Newborn Session HERE.

Outdoor sessions are business as usual, with the added precautions of a mask (for me) and maintaining a safe distance at all times!

While we always practice excellent safety and hygiene as a Specialized Newborn Studio, we have implemented additional precautions during the pandemic, because nothing is more precious than your little one!

After closing the studio completely for a number of months, we ventured outdoors with the safety precautions recommended by the CDC and have had a great time with clients! For our very special tiny people, we had implemented CDC requirements and recommendations and are excited to move forward with documenting this special time.

health measures

Generally speaking, we are social distancing and reducing contact with the “outside world” more than the average person. Before each session I regularly monitor my temperature. I ask that clients check their temperature, too, before coming to the studio.
Disposable gloves and masks are kept on hand at the studio. I will be happy to wear both during the session if that’s what you would prefer .

personal hygiene

I wash my hands thoroughly before and after each session . Hand sanitizer is also kept out in the shooting area at all times. Please ensure you wash your hands well for at least 20 seconds before leaving your house.

studio cleaning policy

After each session, the studio is deep cleaned. I sanitize every surface that can possibly be touched before and after sessions so that germs aren’t spread between clients.
All surfaces are wiped with disinfectant wipes. Every backdrop, wrap and prop used during the session is washed/sanitized and any gowns that are worn are washed.
At this time no outside props are allowed in the studio.

48 hours between
studio sessions

Until further notice I will only be scheduling ONE studio session every other day to ensure 48 hours between time for thorough sanitization and cleaning.
Also for the time being, sessions will be limited to immediate family only.

no shoes in the studio
policy

We ask that you please remove your shoes once inside and leave them at the doorway.

Sick Policy

My studio has a strict no-sickness policy.

Clients are required to disclose and reschedule the session if their child or anyone coming to the studio have had a fever or any other symptoms such as cough, runny nose or vomiting in the last 24 hours. To reschedule , please contact me as soon as possible. There is no fee to reschedule.
