Hi Friends, I am writing a quick blog post to let you know our studio’s strategy to protect you and your family during this Coronavirus outbreak

Please know that we will do the same to protect you and your loved ones as we will do for our own. 

I am keeping apprised of updates and changes via trusted news outlets and the CDC. I have determined our current course of action to disinfect and mitigate disease transmission as thoroughly as possible utilizing the CDC’s guidelines for prevention and treatment and are also taking steps beyond what is currently suggested in order to protect you, your clients, and our own families. I am also moving all in-person edits to online via a zoom call. All photography sessions in the studio are cancelled until further notice but we are scheduling for May and June.

STEPS WE HAVE DONE

We are doing a top to bottom cleaning of the studio including wiping down all surfaces with a bleach solution and extra attention to high traffic areas like doorknobs, light switches, counters and bathrooms. We are wiping down all studio gear with clorox bleach wipes.

We will continue our longstanding policy of laundering any backdrop or item used or touched by a client during a session. We will continue our practice of if either Sarah or myself have a cough or feel ill, we will not come to work and will cancel your session.

GOING FORWARD

We will endeavor to keep the space as clean and germ free as possible. All who come to the studio will be asked to wash their hands upon entering excluding infants. After a client leaves we will be wiping the surfaces, moping and disinfecting our sofa.

Though we love providing light snacks, coffee, and beverages to our clients, we will be temporarily suspending this amenity in order to further protect your health. Please plan on bringing any beverages/snacks you or your clients may require.

DURING YOUR TIME WITH US

When you arrive at the studio, we request that everyone aside of small infants thoroughly wash their hands. We will also wash our hands when we arrive to the studio and again after you arrive. Should anyone cough/sneeze/use the restroom/etc mid-shoot, they should wash hands. There is a sink in our studio for hand washing.

We are will continue with our ‘no shoes’ policy in the studio area. When you arrive, if reasonable, please remove your shoes and leave near the desks. We will also be removing the shoes we arrive to the studio in and switching them out for ‘studio shoes’ (spoiler alert: it’s new slippers, guys!).

We will continue with our “no shoes” policy in the studio area.       

RESCHEDULING AND CANCELLATIONS

Should you, your family member, or anyone close you come in contact with start to exhibit the symptoms of Corona Virus, please contact us by email, text, FacebookInstagram, or phone to reschedule your session. We promise to make it work and would rather play it as safe as possible.
