Studio Cleanliness has taken on a whole new level of meaning. For the last few months, the world sort of came to a stop due to COVID-19. Both my husband and I were forced to stop working and stay home for several weeks. It was a surreal feeling, but the time we got to spend together as a family was so meaningful.
As our state cautiously opens, I am now booking sessions. To prepare, I have deep cleaned my studio and implemented new studio cleanliness guidelines on top of the policies already in place.
What I’m Doing Differently for Studio Cleanliness
I will only be booking one client per day to allow for thorough cleaning between sessions. Even though I already sanitize my hands frequently during newborn sessions, I’ll be doing so even more often throughout the session.
Please only bring immediate family with you for your session. Sometimes I have clients bring grandparents or a friend along, and that’s usually okay if there aren’t any big disruptions. However, I must ask that we keep it to just you, your baby, your spouse, and your own children at this time.
I provide all props, and thoroughly wash them between uses, so you don’t need to bring anything. Sometimes clients might bring something sentimental to include in their session. If you are really excited about including something, please wash it before your session and put it in a bag before you bring it.
When you arrive at the studio, I’m going to ask that you remove your shoes if you leave the sitting area at any point in time. The soles of shoes can hide a lot of unseen bacteria. I do my best to disinfect every surface after each client, but the floor is a large surface area that little ones frequently crawl around on.
Thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart, for taking the time to read through all of the new studio cleanliness guidelines. I am so excited to see you all and photograph your sweet babies!
