Let's Stay Safe - Outdoor Family Photography - Covid-19

Updated: 5 days ago

If we all play our part, together we can get through this.

All my photoshoots are outdoors in the fresh air and with my long lens I can safely photograph families from a two metre distance or more. I have always photographed this way, so the quality of images you will receive will be the same as they were before the pandemic and what you see on this website.

A few rules and small changes

However, there are still a few rules and small changes I need to put in place and make you aware of. Please read below before you book a photoshoot. It is important to me that I keep your and my family safe whilst working together.

  • As of 14th September 2020 we are only allowed to congregate in a group of 6 or less from mixed households. Therefore, at present I am only taking bookings with a family of up to 5 people.

  • Everyone taking part in the session must stay a minimum of two metres away from me, and I from them.

  • No physical greetings or goodbyes

  • If your child is at an age where they can understand instruction, it is your responsibility to brief them before the shoot on the policies outlined here.

  • No one is allowed to touch my equipment and I will not touch your belongings either.

  • No personal contact will be allowed. This includes me arranging your hair, clothes and positioning, I will direct you instead.

  • All viewing and ordering sessions take place online, so no change there.

  • Prints and products will be delivered straight from my lab to your home to reduce contact.

  • Please bring hand sanitizer along to the shoot.

  • I have subscribed to email updates on Coronavirus (COVID-19) from the Government via gov.uk, and will update policies accordingly.

  • I sometimes have families sit on blankets I bring along to the shoot. Whilst covid-19 is still around, I may ask you to bring your own.


I have carried out a risk assessment in relation to my outdoor photoshoots, adhering to strict government guidelines.

My family and I have been particularly careful throughout the pandemic. Always wearing masks to supermarkets and strictly adhering to the guidelines. I am very lucky and thankful that none of my family or friends has had this awful disease yet.

Even though we will always be two metres apart on the shoot, my promise to you is that I will hand sanitize before the shoot and always be careful not to come within two metres.
