Current guidelines have once again changed.  Your safety is always our primary concern.

Julie and I work together as a team, to provide you our clients with a safe and fun atmosphere for your special day.

For us, the experience and creation of images go hand in hand. However, we live in unprecedented times and for the safety of all concerned, the way we work has changed to keep everyone as safe as possible.  

Update 05/04/21 

At the time of writing, we are pleased we can now offer outdoor sessions for groups of up to 4 people from two households (we count as the third Household) Outdoor sessions are easier to keep everyone socially distanced and they are extremely good fun producing natural-looking documentary Style images.

Indoor Sessions currently remain suspended, but we are hopeful the date of 26th of April, will be significant in allowing us to return to shooting indoors.  

B2B sessions for Headshots and Branding imagery are still permitted please contact us for more information. The government has said that the data is changing all the time and will revise any changes as new data becomes available so please revisit this page for the latest information.

Anyone with a photoshoot booked during this lockdown period will be offered new dates, just as soon as it is possible to do so, we will contact you when we get the green light to continue trading. 

We are of course still open for inquiries. We are currently taking bookings for outdoor sessions. Bookings for indoor sessions will resume from the 14th of April. We, of course, have to follow the law, and your safety and that of those who work with us is of course our first concern.  Rest assured, if you have already booked a session with us prior to lockdown we will prioritise your appointment and will contact you before we open our calendar to arrange a new date for your session. 

To stop the spread of infection & prior to every photo session or appointment, clients must inform us if -:

you or any member of your party (within the last 14 days) have, or suspect they may have, symptoms of Covid-19. 

Outdoor sessions when allowed will be conducted away from others.  If we see people approaching we will stop the shoot until such a time as it is safe to continue.  Time is not an issue for us as we only book one session per day, thus allowing us to take as much time as needed to create high-quality imagery for our clients. 

We will (when possible) keep our distance from you which is quite easy for us to do outdoors as we can photograph you with longer lenses so this is rarely a problem. posing and direction again can be done quite easily from a distance. 

Your safety is always our first concern. and we thank you for your understanding and patience, in these unprecedented times.  

Below is a list of our working practices for photoshoots when they are allowed to take place. 

1. Only 1 Studio Photosession will take place in any 24 hour period.   

2. Deep cleaning will take place between each and every shoot, with alcohol-based cleaning products. Certain items such as cloth backdrops will be steam cleaned between sessions

3. For Studio sessions, A dehumidifier and will run on the day of your photoshoot. keeping the studio air clean and the humidity at an optimal healthy level.   The studio will also be well ventilated. 

4. All non-essential soft furnishings, props, will be covered or removed. Coverings will be washed after every session.    

6. Only fully washable props will be used until further notice. 

7. Any used Paper Background sections will be discarded at the end of every photoshoot and the remaining roll will be quarantined for at least 72 hours, before being used again. 

8. Photo sessions will only resume when government guidelines permit us to do so, it is clear that Indoor sessions have greater limitations than outdoor sessions. The latest government guidelines will be adhered to at all times.              

9 Hand sanitizing Station will be available and we will, of course, be wearing a face covering at all times indoors.  For indoor sessions, we will ask clients to wear a mask when they're not on set.

10 We will keep (to our best ability) a distance from you and rather than adjust clothing and hair for you, we will direct you so you may do it yourself.  This applies to both indoor and outdoor sessions. 

Our promise to you                      

Our promise to you is we will still have a fun day creating imagery that you will love and enjoy for generations to come. We are so looking forward to creating images for you of those people you love now, more than ever. 

COVID 19 has changed the way we work and the advice is constantly being updated. The safety of everyone remains our highest priority and we thank you for your patience and understanding in helping us achieve this.
