Covid-19 Session Precautions

During this unprecedented time, the safety and wellness of my clients is very important to me.    We have high risk members in our family and I will be doing my very best to keep the environment safe.  

You can check out my full Studio Wellness Policy here.  

+ Per state mandate, masks are required for all adults and older children.  If you are being photographed or able to maintain a distance outdoors, you can remove your mask. 

+ Each family will sign a visitor's form and answer several questions the day before their session to enter. 

Santa Sessions

The decision for you to have your child sit in Santa's lap is up to you.  

+ Santa sessions will be held outdoors. If weather is raining, or in the 30 - 40s then they will move inside to the studio.

+ One family is allowed into the studio  or shooting area at a time.  Client will text that they are here and wait in the car for my assistant to call them inside.  

+ Children must come dressed and ready.  No changing clothes in the studio.

+ Masks are required for all older children and adults when not being photographed.  

+ Temps will be checked at the door.

+ Hand sanitizer will be available at the door.

+ Please remove shoes at the door or wear shoe covers.

+ Only children and 2 parents will be allowed to enter the studio. 

+ Santa will be changing his gloves often and sanitizing.  He is sanitizing his Santa suit between events. 

+ It is up the client if they would like their child to sit on Santa's lap.

+ If baby is not sitting up and able to sit on a chair then mom or dad must be willing to sit in the picture with them unless mom/dad chooses for baby to be in Santa's lap.

+ Babies who are sitting are able to sit in a little bowl in front of Santa's feet showing just his feet and all of him. (image posted below).

+ All areas will be sanitized between clients.  


Hot Cocoa Sessions, Polar Express, Fall Fun, Pajamas.

+ Props will be on the background and not for little ones to hold.  Please bring something for your child to hold if you would like them to. Reference the above section about props.  

+ There will be a variety of little chairs and benches for little ones to sit on.  I will rotate them and sanitize before the next child sits in one.
