Read Emily Black Photography's Covid Safe Plan

As a requirement for all Victorian businesses operating during the Covid 19 Pandemic, under Stay Safe Directives, Emily Black Photography has a current Covid Safe Plan for Operating.

Covid-19 Restrictions and what they mean for your session.

[Updated June 4th 2021] 

Under the current Lockdown Restrictions in Greater Melbourne, all sessions are currently on hold.

When we can safely return to sessions, following all relevant guidelines, safety measures will be in effect, complete with my Covid Safe Plan and permits where required.

As we move through this time, the main focus, as always is on the safety of you, your family and the greater public health, including my own. 

It's necessary to follow the directives and while sessions may not look like you'd expected or hoped initially, they will be beautiful and heartfelt.

Through my role with the AIPP (Australian Institute of Professional Photography) the profession has gained clarification surrounding the mandatory face covering rules, ensuring that masks can be removed while you are actively being photographed by a professional.

While indoor and in person mentoring sessions are currently on hold, they will return when safely able to be undertaken, with people per square meter guidelines being followed.

I have all the relevant permits, Covid Safe Plan and documentation for any contact tracing should it be required.

I will be in communication with all clients to ensure the safest practices are being followed, and will always err on the side of caution in any situation.


While 2020 was rather discombobulating, the downtime allowed space for growth and re-thinking business, family, and the value we hold in the art of image capture. 

I have built loads of wonderful connections over the years with clients, many of us have become very close, and it's an honour to share in some of life's most incredible moments, your support means the world to me.

Please take care of you and your family, and I look forward to seeing you all in person, capturing some treasured moments for you.
