Official re- opening date & Covid policies
I am extremely excited to be re- opening the studio on the 20th July.
To contribute to all of our health and well being, I have decided to wait until I am fully vaccinated with Pfizer.
Where in the world is Laine Allen?
For the last few years I have been absent from the studio as I have been busy with family portraits and beauty portraits in several countries throughout Europe.
I had one simple goal: To spread the awareness of family portraits worldwide.
In doing this work I learn not matter what Culture, we all have one desire: we want to look our best.
I then fell inlove with Scotland and my work became focused on my Outlander and Scotland travel Blogging. I have a global client base of some of the products I sell.
Outlander fans can view my work HERE.
In the meantime, enjoy being taken around the world watching the following portraits with some of the most famous scenes in the world.
Covid Policies in the studio
As I had a ((preventative)) double Mastectomy 6 months ago I needed to implement additional Covid policies.
LA Photography follows Queensland recommendations in how businesses can protect themselves against Covid.
*** Only those who have received both vaccines may enter the studio unless they have been given exemptions including children under 12 years old. However, parents who enter must be.
This includes clients and those who are renting the studio or the studio wardrobe.
Ensuring your safety & well being during these times
These recommendations have been taken from the Workplace Health Management Plan Template,
** You must advise LA Photography when booking if you have been in any hot spots or of yyou have been in contact with anyone presenting with Covid symptoms. If you have you must wait 14 days before booking with LA Photography.
** Please do not enter if you have any symptoms of feeling unwell. As well as myself I also need to consider the needs of my makeup artists, staff & their families and other clients and their families.
Should you need to re- schedule due to illness we will do so without a changing fee.
