Hello! First of all, thank you to all our wonderful clients and families who have helped us weather such an uncertain time! We are so very grateful to you! We wanted to share some of the ways that we are keeping our team and our clients safe during the current COVID-19 pandemic. We recognize that each person has differing political and personal views on the virus, and we ask that you heed these not as a political statement, but as instructions and protocols that will help keep our small business running. Thank you for your understanding! We would love to speak with you privately if you have a question or a concern.
-Outdoor locations only: We are only selecting locations that are outdoors with good airflow at the moment. We will be selecting places where social distancing can be easily adhered to. We have a litany of amazing outdoor spots, so please know that this is already our specialty, and we always search out the best light and locale for your shoot.
-Limited Numbers: Right now, we are limiting the amount of people allowed to attend senior sessions. Of course, one parent must be present with a minor at all times, but we are not permitting additional siblings (unless they are in the shoot). We will need to request that extraneous people at the sessions leave the premises if the numbers become too high to remain safely distanced. We are allowing family sessions in the fall, with family members from the same home. If you have shared custody or an unique situation, please let me know and we will see what accommodations can be made!
-Mask wearing: I will be wearing a mask while shooting and interacting with clients, and distancing however possible. I will do as much directing of posing/styling from a 6 foot or further distance unless absolutely necessary. We recommend that clients bring a mask with them for their own comfort or safety, or for in between locations. Obviously, we do not require you to wear your mask while I am taking your photos.
-Sanitizing: We are sanitizing each and every piece of equipment between clients, in order to keep myself and the clients safe (even though the client has not touched my equipment). We will be hand-washing and hand-sanitizing as well. During any session reveals or handing over of products, we will ensure safe practices and sanitation. We will be unable to handle your personal items, such as phones, keys, or purses. Please try to leave all personal items in a tote with a carry handle that you can bring along, or in your car, during your shoot to minimize items being touched or used.
– If you or anyone in your home has had the following symptoms: fever, cough, sore throat, fatigue, please let us know immediately so we can reschedule your shoot. We understand there are multiple reasons these symptoms can occur (such as allergies or a common cold), but we want to minimize any risk to ourselves and others. If you or anyone you’ve had contact with has tested positive for COVID-19, please notify us immediately. If you or someone in your home tests positive within 14 days after your session, please contact us immediately.
Thank you so much for abiding by these standards so we can continue to provide excellent and safe service. We want the Aubry Ramsey experience to be the same, and will strive to provide the highest quality in senior and family images!
