Baby's First Year and Beyond

Covid-19 Photography Studio Policies


Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont signed an executive order that requires all “non-essential” businesses to shut down through May 20th. Therefor the studio is closed until May 20th.

Here are the studio policies and procedures moving forward in consideration of the COVID-19 disease.

These guidelines are borrowed from Katie McCarthy at Little Moments photography, who is both a newborn photographer/business owner, as well as a practicing Registered Nurse for the past 9 years.

The information found here is based on CDC recommendations, and adheres to the guidelines of the three-phased approach presented by the federal government.

When deciding to reopen my studio and resuming operations, I will be following the State of Connecticut’s regulations and ensure that my business can meet the appropriate guidelines outlined here: https://www.whitehouse.gov/openingamerica/

At Looking Up Photography, I make client safety my number one priority. My day-to-day studio operations have been adjusted to maintain a safe and sanitary environment. My plans for the first stage of reopening the studio are as follows.

• Studio availability is limited to Maternity, Newborn and Baby photography only. Family sessions will take place outdoors, weather permitting and when the parks and beaches are reopened.
• Only the parents and the child being photographed will be allowed in the studio during the session. No extended family members will be permitted. Additionally I ask that siblings not be present during your newborn session. A family member may bring siblings for a family photo at the beginning of the session.
• Family members entering the studio will be asked to participate in a screening process.
• Temperature checks will be conducted upon arrival. Anyone with a temperature of 100 or lower will be allowed to enter the studio.
• I require shoes off at the door.
• I (the Photographer) will wear a cloth mask at all times. Masks will also be available for purchase for parents if they would like to wear one.
• Multiple sanitizer stations will be available throughout studio, as well as a bathroom for hand washing.
• Please bring your own prepackaged snacks/drinks.
• Standard cleaning precautions before and after every individual session will include: cleaning high touch surfaces such as doorknobs, phones, etc., laundering studio fabrics, emptying and sanitizing trash receptacles, cleaning and disinfecting the bathroom.
• Professional cleanings on a weekly basis.

I look forward to inviting you back into the studio and providing you with a safe space to capture your Precious Moments!
