A note from Erin
I know that the Covid-19 pandemic has created a lot of worry and uncertainty, especially for new and expecting mamas and those with underlying health concerns. As a mother myself, and the mother of an immunocompromised child, I want to share the precautions that we are taking in studio to protect the health of our tiniest clients, their families, my family, and the families of my employees. While no activity during this time is risk-free, I believe that the precautions we are taking allow us to be one of the safer environments at this time. We are following all CDC and local health regulations, and then some. If you have any questions about our policies, please send us a message.

All studio guests will have their temperature taken with a no-contact thermometer before entering the studio. My assistant and myself will also be monitoring our temperatures regularly.

temperature checks

Everyone is required to wash or sanitize their hands upon entering the studio. Hand sanitizer with >60% alcohol will be readily available in the studio.

hand washing

As always, even before Covid, studio guests will be asked to remove their shoes before entering the studio.

no shoes, please

All studio guests over the age of 10 are required to wear a face mask covering the mouth and nose at all times during the studio, when not actively being photographed. If you have a medical condition preventing the use of a face mask, please let us know before your session. If you arrive without a face mask, a disposable mask will be provided to you.

face masks

The studio will be deep cleaned with hospital-grade cleaner before and after each session. All wardrobe items, wraps, and blankets will be washed after use.

cleaning procedures

Clients will receive a screening questionnaire the day before their session. Screening forms must be filled out for the session to proceed. At this time, only immediate family members are permitted to attend sessions.

At this time, our current wellness policy is as follows:

If you or a member of your household have had symptoms of illness within the past 14 days, you will be required to reschedule your session. This is in addition to our normal sick policy of 48 hours fever and symptom free, without the use of medications.

If you or a member of your household have been exposed to Covid-19, you must reschedule your session for a minimum of 14 days from the LAST EXPOSURE.

wellness policy

During this time, our families have been limiting our exposure by foregoing group gatherings outside of our household (this includes no siblings, parents, grandparents, etc), not traveling, and utilizing online services for contactless essentials. We expect our clients to do the same during the 2 weeks prior to their session date.

We appreciate your help and sacrifice so that we can continue to remain open and serving our clients, and also keeping our own families healthy.
