Hello dear clients and potential clients, Pretty Dreams Photography as been closed due to the pandemic since March 14, 2020, following Ontario provincial guidelines and policies. Once I am given clearance to start working again the following guidelines below will take place. I truly can’t wait to start creating magic again once I reopen.
Many of us have been facing the feeling of fear or anxiety and uncertainty during these past 9 weeks. Our lives have been put on hold in so many ways during these unprecedented times. Despite the frustration, the hardships and the emotional burdens. I hope that you have been able to find some moments of gratitude.
I have seen so much good in people during this crisis and people taking the time to support each other more than ever before. I hope you have embraced this pause and gained a new sense of resiliency. We will come out of this stronger than before.
With that being said, I would like to discuss some new announcements and studio policies that will take place once we reopen. First, our In-Studio will be closed until further notice which actually works out great due to the fact that we are closed for the pandemic and hopefully won’t affect us too much. We will be moving to the Ottawa area this summer and I will be building or obtaining a new studio.
We are truly excited to bring you a new stunning and inviting studio that I have envisioned for a while, I cant wait to get this process started and bring you a place that is truly relaxing and bringing you a full Pretty Dreams Photography experience to life during your In-studio sessions. Once the Studio does open there will be certain procedures moving forward in consideration of the coronavirus disease.
For those of you who don’t know me, my full-time profession is being a newborn, baby, child and maternity photographer. I give my business 100% dedication to make it a truly incredible experience for my clients. But before I changed professions, I was an ICU and ER nurse for 19 years. So I take safety to the highest degree in my studio and also in my outdoor sessions.
Once we are allowed to open, the first phase I will open will be my outdoor sessions only, I will be following the government guidelines for phase opening and I will be following CDC guidelines and Ontario public health recommendations. At Pretty Dreams Photography, we make client safety our number one priority. Our day to day studio operations will be adjusted to maintain a safe and sanitary environment in studio and also in our outdoor sessions.
COVID screening process. 24 hours before your session you will be asked to confirm that yourself and your child do not have any of the below symptoms. I will do the same in making sure we are all ready and healthy for the session. The process is simple and it will be a checklist with a few questions which I have outlined below that we will both sign. If not signed or symptoms by either party are noted the session will be immediately postponed.
Symptoms of COVID-19 include:
I agree to the following:
____ I understand the above symptoms and affirm that I, as well as all household members, do not currently have, nor have experienced the symptoms listed above WITHIN THE LAST 14 DAYS.
____ I affirm that I, as well as all household members, have not been diagnosed with COVID-19 WITHIN THE PAST 30 DAYS.
____ I affirm that I, as well as all household members, have not knowingly been exposed to anyone diagnosed with COVID-19 WITHIN THE PAST 30 DAYS.
____ I affirm that I, as well as all household members, have not traveled outside of the country, or to any city considered to be a “hot spot” for COVID-19 infections WITHIN THE PAST 30 DAYS.
If there are any further guidelines or recommendations by the health officials and government we will implement those also, but for now, I wanted to share how we will be phasing in sessions in the future and wanted to tell you how much I truly miss each and every one of you.
Thank you for your ongoing support during these unpredicted times. I hope you are each safe and healthy and I truly can’t wait to work with each and every one of my amazing clients again. I will keep you updated on when reopening will occur and cant wait to see you all again.
