[Updated October 15th 2021] 

Due to the current lockdown restrictions in metro Melbourne, sessions are currently on hold. 

When they return, estimated from October 26th, sessions will be outdoors, and available for fully vaccinated clients, with further updates and easing phasing in as we reach further vaccination targets.

Directives require we are working within the Stay Safe Plans, registering for contact tracing, keeping our distance, and wearing masks while not actively being photographed.

Your COVID-19 Vaccination status will also need to be confirmed prior to your session, and proof viewed on the day of your session. 

Currently only fully vaccinated clients (16 and over) will be able to go ahead with sessions, and as directives shift as targets are met we will continue to work within public health directives.

I am fully vaccinated to ensure the greatest protection for my clients and my family, you can read my Covid Safe Plan here.

COVID-19 Restrictions  and your Photography Session

We will be following all relevant guidelines, safety measures, including masks where required, check ins, 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. 

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.

COVID-19 Restrictions and In Person Mentoring Sessions for Photographers

In person mentoring sessions, Newborn Workflow and EmPowered Mentoring will also operate under COVID Safe requirements.

All mentoring sessions are conducted under the stay safe guidelines and directives, with EmPowered Mentoring also available via online platforms when in person is not possible.

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


While 2020 and even 2021, has been 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.
