The health and safety of my clients and staff are of utmost importance. Here’s how I’m going to ensure a safe working environment.
Before the Session: Planning a Safe Environment
- A planning call will take place to address questions and develop a plan to mitigate the risks of COVID-19 during the session.
- Additional paperwork regarding COVID-19 liability will be required. This is to protect all parties from liabilities in case an unknown transmission occurs while working together.
- Everyone connected to the session will be asked to self-assess their health prior to our scheduled shoot. The session will be rescheduled, without fee, in the case anyone self-identifies as a potential risk.
- All sessions will be held outside.
The Session: Working Together
- Physical distancing and reduced direct contact, as recommended by the CDC, will be maintained.
- Only people directly involved will be allowed to attend the session.
- All equipment will be thoroughly sanitized between clients.
- The Photographer and assistant (if present) will be required to wear a cloth mask. Clients not being photographed will be asked to wear a mask, as appropriate.
- Hand sanitizer, wipes, and extra masks will be available.
After the Session: Proofing + Ordering
- If anyone connected to session develops symptoms or tests positive for COVID-19 within 10 days of the completion of the session, they must contact me. While all health information will remain anonymous and confidential, it is essential to notify participants of their possible exposure.
- Proofing and ordering of images will be completed through on-line photo galleries and video calls.
- All artwork will be shipped directly to your home.
