COVID-19 has certainly thrown a wrench into my typical workflow of studio and newborn sessions! I have always taken health safety practices seriously for newborn sessions since babies have such new immune systems. The last thing any mama wants is a sick baby. Although there are changes and I am taking on much less sessions now, I have been able to safely work with a select few families during this time.
Due to the close proximity of newborn and other studio sessions, the fact that they are indoors with less ventilation, and clients must take off masks to be photographed, I have implemented new policies to protect all parties involved.

Currently, if you and your family do not follow any social distancing guidelines, I cannot offer any studio session or in-home lifestyle sessions. I have a high risk child and my family is doing everything we can to protect ourselves from becoming sick.
If your family is not mixing with other family or friend groups outside your household on a regular basis, follows good masks-wearing habits, and does not participate in high risk activities, I am considering studio or in-home sessions for these families on a case by case basis. If you do not practice social distancing or mask wearing to this extent, I can offer you an outdoor session instead where we can keep our distance and no handling of baby will be involved.
I do hope that 2021 brings some normalcy back to our lives and that cases of this virus go down. I do plan to get myself and family vaccinated as soon as I am able. Until then, stay safe.
Thank you so much for reading these new policies. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me at MelissaSheridanPhotography@yahoo.com or text/call at (434) 373-0015.
All the best,
