I am hoping that I will soon be able to resume newborn and baby photography sessions in my studio from July 4th 2020 (subject to the Government Guidance being approved). I wanted to share with you the changes I will be making, some might be short term, but I will be reviewing them regularly.
When can Photography Studios open?
From Monday 15th June, studios that big enough to be able to social distance (stay 2 metres from clients) can open for non contacts photography sessions
When will Photography By Sharon Lewis open?
Currently no photographers should be photographing newborn babies until hairdressers have been given the go ahead. This is because newborn photography requires close contact. I need to touch and pose your baby before I photograph them, to wrap them or settle them into a pose. Hairdressers have to remain closed at the moment because the government do not deem it to be safe. The same applies to newborn photographers. I am taking this situation very seriously and will not be putting my clients or myself at undue risk.
Even though myself or my clients may not be showing signs of the virus and newborns and babies are shown as particularly low risk of getting the virus, I need to ensure the Government have given the go ahead for contact and my Insurance company is happy that I open for these types of sessions.
As soon as we are given the go ahead and hairdressers are back to work, then I will start photographing newborns.
Below are the measures that I will be putting in place when I am back to work, to ensure you and your baby are safe.
I hope this has reassured you that I am doing everything I can to limit the risk. Please do contact me if you would like to talk about your session.
If you would like to book a newborn session for your baby, then please contact me while you are pregnant, I will have a few sessions from previously booked clients to get through in July, so ensuring you have your session booked will limit your disappointment, if I do not have availability.
