Photography in SE Kent
Little Pandas Photography is BACK!
After all the upheaval of the last few months, I am so pleased to be able to get back to work.
Obviously some changes have had to be made, to follow Government guidelines on social distancing etc, but I am really confident that these changes will not affect the quality of my work or the experience I can provide.
What your session will look like
Newborn sessions will take place outdoors for the moment, until such time as the Government lifts the restrictions on entering other people’s houses.
If you have a garden that will allow enough space for me to stay 2m apart from anyone, then this is the perfect place for me to set up. I will use an extension reel and ask you to plug it in for me through a door or window, so I can run my lights. I will also have a small fan heater with me, to keep baby nice and warm if needed.
All newborn sessions will be un-posed, or will only use simple poses that can be achieved by parents with my guidance.
A zoom lens will be used, along with a stool, to enable me to capture your baby from the right angles, whilst remaining at a safe distance.
Family and sibling poses are still achievable, and are encouraged.
All props and blankets will be sanitised before and after every session.
A mask will be worn by myself, and parents are also encouraged to wear masks if they are more comfortable doing so. I will also have gloves to use in the event that I need to touch props etc.
As always, hand sanitiser will be available throughout the session for me and anyone handling the baby to use.
Outdoor family, child and pet sessions
My outdoor style is very relaxed anyway, so the good news is that there isn’t much to change about them! I adopt a lightly posed/lifestyle approach to my family, child and pet photography, with an emphasis on capturing personality and connections.
That being said, social distancing must still be adhered to, so there are a few changes to be made.
I can currently only photograph families of up to 5 people, from the same household. This is due to the Government’s “six people” guideline.
I can no longer play tag, get down on the ground and play or receive hugs from the children. This makes me really sad, as making friends with your little people makes me so happy, and helps me to capture those natural smiles and expressions.
A recent poll in my Facebook group revealed that most clients it wasn’t necessary for me to wear a mask for outdoor sessions. Although I am happy to do so if it makes you more comfortable.
I hope this goes some way towards easing your minds, and I look forward to seeing you for your photo session!
