  • There is a no-contact policy in place between photographer and clients.
  • If you feel ill or show symptoms of illness or have come into contact with someone who is or has been ill, within 14 days of your session, please kindly reschedule and do not attend

How we will be keeping you safe:

Vaccination:
Julia is fully vaccinated.
 
Ensure Physical Distancing:
We will be ensuring both client and photographer maintain as much social distancing between each other as required.
This will be maintained with 1.5 metres of social distancing at all times.
The use of cropping and lens choice within photography can ensure we maintain this distance as required. 
 
Practise Good Hygiene:
Before and after each session, strict cleaning will be in place. 
All surfaces will be cleaned with disinfectant, with particular attention to high-touch surfaces.
Hand sanitiser will be provided for all clients to use during their session.
We encourage clients to bring their own water bottles or keep cups for those wishing to have beverages during their sessions.
Sessions will be scheduled with an appropriate amount of time between each client, to ensure properly disinfecting can be adhered to.
Masks will be worn in-line with the current restrictions that apply at the time of the session. Clients are not required to wear a mask when being photographed but are asked to wear one to and from their car if restrictions require them to do so. 
 
Keeping Records:
Records of each client will be maintained so contact tracing can be applied if necessary. This information is taken upon making a booking.
A QR code will be at the studio for you to check-in with the business Victoria QR code system.
If the photographer feels ill, the session must be rescheduled and the photographer must undergo COVID-19 testing. 
If clients feel ill within 14 days of their session, they must not attend. Sessions can be rescheduled with no penalty.
 
Avoiding close interactions in enclosed spaces:
We encourage outdoor photography during this time.
In situations where the studio is in use, we can ensure well ventilation by keeping doors and windows open.
