COVID-19 Preparedness Plan

At Addie Lane Studios, the health and safety of your family and ours is of utmost importance.  We have always cleaned props, sanitized hands, and taken hygiene seriously.  Now, we’ve stepped that up even higher.  In accordance with Stay Safe MN, this COVID-19 Preparedness Plan explains the policies and practices of Addie Lane Studios so that we can meet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Minnesota Department of Health (MDH guidelines for COVID-19, federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards and Executive Order 20-48 related to worker and customer exposure to COVID-19.  If you have any questions, please contact us!
COVID-19 preparedness plan for photographer and studio

Infection Prevention

Handwashing  Proper handwashing, according to CDC guidelines, will occur at the beginning, end, and during breaks at all sessions where water is available. If water is not available, hand sanitizers will be used. 

Immediate Family Only  Attendance at sessions will be limited to people participating in the portrait session and parents of minors. Any friends or extended family will not be allowed at the session.  

Masks  We ask that masks be worn at all times other than when you are actively having your picture taken. This will help reduce the amount of time of exposure.

Contact-Free Payments  A touch-free payment terminal is available at the studio

Prompt Identification of Sick Persons

Illness  If you or your family are showing any signs of illness within the 24 hours leading up to your session, please call and we will reschedule your session. Symptoms include: cough, shortness of breath, fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, loss of taste or smell.

Temperature/Fever Upon arrival, everyone’s temperature will be taken with a no-touch infrared forehead thermometer. If anyone has a fever, the session will be immediately cancelled. 

Social Distancing

Social Distancing  All families and photographers are expected to be a minimum of 6 feet apart, whether outdoor or at the studio. Our large studio allows for plenty of space for separation. Please use extra care in close spaces such as doorways and stairwells.   Meetings, such as consultations and ordering appointments, may still be held at the studio where there is enough space for social distancing. There is great benefit in seeing our products in-person and I encourage us to meet at the studio. But we do have options in place to meet virtually if needed. 


Cleaning & Disinfecting

Studio Disinfecting  The studio will be disinfected before each client. This includes surfaces such as tables, doors, light switches, camera and lighting gear.

Props and Materials  All cloth material that comes in contact with you, such as baby wraps, blankets, outfits from the Little Closet and Client Closet, will be laundered before use. Props, depending on the material, will be wiped down or sprayed with disinfectant. 

Protection For Product Deliver

Delivery  Addie Lane Studios is proud to offer the convenience of product delivery. We are still able to do this by providing a contact-free delivery to your door.
