Operating Safely in COVID-19
COVID-19 SAFETY GUIDELINES
As a photographer, I serve my clients by documenting their family's history. This service may not be deemed essential, but it is arguably very important.
Although I have decided to continue serving clients, I have embraced the need to reduce the spread of COVID-19, and I will responsibly adhere to all state guidelines and follow all CDC recommendations to keep our community safe. I ask that my clients follow the same guidelines.
Outdoors - I will not be doing any indoor photoshoots at this time. All shoots must take place outdoors in uncrowded locations.
Social Distancing - I will remain several feet from my clients at all times and I will not physically touch them. If you're like me and you are a hugger, you know this is a hard one, but we can do it! :)
Face covering - I will wear a face mask through the entirety of the photoshoot. I ask that my clients wear a face covering when they are not being photographed.
Group size - I can only serve groups of five people or fewer at this time.
Temperature check - Before a photoshoot, I will take my own temperature and I ask my clients to do the same. If a person's temperature exceeds 100.4 degrees, the photoshoot will be cancelled (and session will be refunded).
Quarantine period - If I travel out of the state, I will spend 14 days quarantining upon my return. I ask my clients to follow the same rule.
Screening Questions - I will ask my clients to consider these questions prior to the photoshoot:
How are you feeling?
Have you had a cough or any flu-like or COVID symptoms in the last 14 days?
Have you been around anyone exhibiting these symptoms with the last 14 days?
Are you living with anyone who is sick or quarantined?
If the answer is yes to any of these questions, the photoshoot will be cancelled (and session will be refunded).
Adhere to sanitation protocols - I practice regular hand washing every day, especially leading up to a photoshoot. I will sanitize any props used in the photoshoot. I will also use and have hand sanitizer available during photoshoots.
Thank you for understanding and adhering to these safety guidelines!
