“Patience, Perseverance and plenty of Planning”
A phrase that has always come in line with every task we complete in the studio, be it the perfect newborn set or making sure everything from fabric to basket is washed, tidied and color ordered for the best organizational effort!
Preparing for this pandemic has been no different, it is just as important to keep your family members safe as well as it is our own, and with every effort possible we hope to do so!
The following plan/checklist is in accordance with the guidance of the QLD government.

Ensure physical distancing
You the Client/s and our Photographer must remain a minimum of 1.5m apart when possible, verbal guidance and demonstration will be used wherever possible instead of physical guidance.
When our photographer is posing/ guiding a baby or toddler then it is only by the parents’ choice and only when absolutely necessary for the task at hand.
Signage and information are easily available and displayed in key areas of our studio,
reminding our clients to practice social distancing.
Wear a face mask
A face mask will be worn by the photographer at all times throughout the session.
All people over the age of 12 will be required to wear a face mask and only remove it for the duration of the photographs unless they hold a lawful exception.
Single use disposable face masks will be used during the session and will be discarded between clients or every 4 hours, depending on which timeline is shorter.
If the client is unable to produce a face mask, a single-use disposable face mask will be offered.
Refusal to wear a face mask will result in the conclusion of the said session and refused entrance to the property.
Practicing good hygiene
