Photoshoots and COVID-19 Alert Levels

Update: We are allowed to do outdoor photo shoots :) Please contact me for more details. 

For the latest information about COVID-19 and alert levels please visit covid19.govt.nz

Please read on if you would like to know more about how we keep you safe and what we will do before, during and after the session.

We have made every effort to include recommendations from the NZ government, NZIPP, WHO and photography networks across the world to keep you safe. 

Feel free to call / send a message for questions.

Protective Gear

We take the following precautions until COVID-19 alert levels are lifted:

  • Hand sanitiser with 24 hour child safe protection (Zoono)
  • Sanitised & disinfected photography gear, bags and props after each session
  • Full deep clean of materials every 2 weeks (Zoono shield 30 day protection)
  • Mask when working at less than 2m distance

What we do to keep you safe

Physical Distance

To keep the recommended 1 meter distance as much as possible, we are predominantly using a mid-telephoto portrait lens (50mm-70mm or longer) which also happens to produce the most pleasing family, newborn and children portraits. 
We will take extra measures for toddlers and may do outdoor shoots to allow for enough room to move. 

Booking arrangements and consultation

Before your shoot we will 

  • share all information digitally and have the ability to discuss details via video or call 
  • Capture details of all people involved in the shoot (contact tracing)
  • have the ability to select from a tailored range of shooting styles to build a connection before and during the session
  • choose locations / room settings where a safe distance can be maintained

During your shoot we will

  • provide professional Zoono hand sanitiser, put on mask 
  • create a comfortable, relaxing environment 
  • choose activities that come natural to you
  • use as many of your own materials as possible to limit contact
  • limit the amount of gear we use where possible
  • use Zoono baby wipes for contact or cleaning during the shoot

After your session we will

  • Clean and sanitise all equipment, props or clothing
  • Dispose of any single-use PPE
  • Inform you in the unlikely event that we have been in contact with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 cases
