Practices for Newborn Photography Client Health and Safety

Birmingham, AL Newborn Photographer

When I am not behind the lens, there is a good chance you will find me in the operating room caring for both pediatric and adult patients as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist. As a professional newborn and baby photographer with a background in healthcare, my two worlds collide, and I pride myself in providing a safe and healthy environment for my tiny clients and their families.

Newborn safety has always been my highest priority, but we are living in unprecedented and uncertain times that call for the highest standards of safety and cleanliness. I am committed to going above and beyond to make sure the babies I photograph are protected and their parents feel comfortable placing their precious ones in my care. Here are a few things that I am doing to make sure that your families and mine are protected.

~ My husband and I are both vaccinated.

~ Out of an abundance of caution, I will wear a mask and gloves while I am handling your newborn.

~ As always, my assistant and I will thoroughly wash our hands before beginning your session and use antibacterial hand sanitizer throughout.

~ I have a very strict sick policy. If I or my assistant, or anyone in our homes, becomes ill or shows any symptoms of COVID-19, I will cancel your session until cleared by a physician. I would ask you to do the same.

~ In addition to the regular cleaning of the studio, I will be conducting thorough deep cleaning frequently.

~ All blankets, swaddles, outfits, props, and accessories used during a session are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized after each session.

~ All potential contact surfaces are wiped with bleach products between clients.

Keeping your baby healthy and safe is my top concern! I will continue to evaluate my best practices for client safety and add to them as we find even better ways to keep you safe.

If you have questions about our newborn photography safety and health policies, please feel free to reach out, and I am happy to address any concerns you may have.
