Can we carry out Social Distancing at our photo shoot?

July 2020

With restrictions now slowly easing, you may have been waiting a few months for your photo session and may be wondering if we are able to carry out a photo shoot safely.

I understand that you may be concerned about staying safe whilst social distancing advice is still in place. I can guaranteed that our sessions will be safe and as normal as they can be, with the following in place: 

Photoshoots on location 

All of my photoshoots take place outdoors, at local parks or scenic locations where it is easy to maintain social distancing. I will ensure there are no gates to touch to visit a location, but please bring hand sanitiser with you for your own safety. 

Number of people 

At the moment, I am able to photograph up to six people outdoors. Please only bring the people being photographed to your session.

Booking sessions at quiet times 

This will help us to avoid busier times of day especially when the weather is warm and families enjoy a visit to the park. This may mean that slots are limited, particularly on weekends, however, quieter times are much more enjoyable and less distracting for your dog.

Long lenses

I use very long lenses to capture your dog and family portraits which means that I can stay a safe distance away and still capture your memories. This is something I do on every shoot, even before lockdown!

Keeping dogs on leads 

At the moment, it is advised that you keep your dogs on leads so as they keep a safe distance from others. I can remove any leads from photographs after your shoot, although I do ask for harnesses to be removed, so just a thin collar and lead would be ideal. If your dog needs a harness, then using one until we are ready to take photographs is fine.

At home gallery viewings

Before lockdown, I liked to carry out in person galleries so as I could see the look on your faces when you saw your gallery for the first time. It also helps for me to be with you for any advice you may need. Galleries will now be online for the time being, so as you can enjoy them in the comfort of your own home, but I am at the end of the phone should you wish to discuss anything at all. 

Product Delivery 

Any deliveries of products will be contactless and I can do this by placing the item on your doorstep, or if collecting, I will place the item on mine for you to collect safely.

Face Masks

No face masks are required as we are outdoors, but this could change with government advice, so please ask if you are unsure about anything before your photo shoot. 


I will not be taking any cash payments for the time being, and photo shoots should be paid by bank transfer where possible before your session. 

What happens next? 

If you would like to book a photo shoot before the summer is out, I am open for bookings! 

If you have any questions, please feel free contact me for a chat.
