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.
Covid Policies in the studio
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.
Please be mindful that as well as myself, this is to ensure greater protection for my staff & their families as well as my clients and their families.
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.
Should you need to re- schedule due to illness we will do so without a changing fee under the following conditions;
1/ You re- book your session.
2/ You only need to re- schedule the once.
** If you need to change your booking a second time, your session fee will be non- refundable.
During these times I am being more flexible should clients need to change their sessions due to being unwell. However, in doing so it affects both myself and my staff's income.
Wearing of masks:
LA Photography and staff will wear masks whilst working with you.
** All staff will wash hands before working with you and we ask you do the same.
