Covid Policies 2020

 

More than 16 years ago, I photographed my first wedding and began building my business one event at a time. My weekends were spent celebrating with hundreds of people... sharing laughs and capturing moments.

 

But those times have changed.

While I am forever grateful for the relationships I've made through the years, new challenges require a shift in thinking. In an effort to protect those I work with, I've devised new policies to limit my interaction and minimize my risk of contracting COVID.

 

Unfortunately, this means I'm not currently taking any events with more than 15 people.

 

COVID-19 Policies and Procedures

Please read the following policy changes specific to COVID-19.

 

  1. Adrienne Maples PhotoStudios is NOT accepting any large events until Fall 2021.
  2. Photographer will adhere to social distancing protocol. (psst: the long lens is my favorite anyway...)
  3. Photographer will take precautions such as mask wearing & frequent sanitation.
  4. All Photography services take place primarily outside.
  5. Indoor services will be considered on a person to person basis with priority placed on preferred clients.
  6. For the brief moments when social distancing is not possible, my mask will cover my nose AND mouth.
  7. I REQUIRE all clientele to reschedule (at no cost!) in the event a household member presents with any symptoms of illness within the last week. (cough, fever, vomiting, diarrhea, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, muscle aches, among others.)
  8. I also reserve the right to reschedule in the event of sickness, or if I (or family) was exposed.
  9. Finally, I have opted to keep my child at home this school year.
Covid
Q+ A

Answers to your questions about COVID-19 and policy changes we've implemented to help keep everyone safe.

Will you shoot inside or Outside?

 

This is a decision made on a case by case basis.

 

Since I'm frequently relied upon to photograph newborns & small children inside the family home, I make every attempt to schedule two weeks between indoor sessions.

 

Do you wear a mask?

 

Yes, it's true.

 

Whenever I'm within close contact with a client, I must hide my smile behind a layer of fabric! When I am appropriately distanced, I often expose my nose for fresh air :)

 

While I make every effort to minimize my personal risk, I'd rather suffocate through a mask than to inadvertently expose your family to my germs.

What about your exposure at weddings?

 

Because of the 2020 health crisis, I am not taking any weddings or large events until Fall of 2021.

 

I can't minimize my risk if I photographed a 100+ person wedding the day before our shoot!?

 

Therefore I'm not scheduling large events until late 2021 or Spring 2022.

Do we need to wear masks?

 

I can't very well take your photograph if you're hiding behind a mask the entire time?! So no! I don't require you to wear a mask.

 

 

These days, we're planning small, private photography services with no more than 10 people in attendance.

What if I have a sick kid?

 

Hey, it happens!

 

I ask all clients to take their temperatures 24 hours prior to their session.

 

In the event a household member presents with ANY symptoms within the last week, (cough, fever, vomiting, diarrhea, sore throat, loss of taste/smell, muscle aches)

we will need to postpone.

 

I allow enough flexibility in scheduling to make accommodations.

 

Do you Have more Questions?

 

I have answers!
