Covid-19 and getting back to work

We are so pleased to be able to say that we will be re-opening the studio from Tuesday 16th June, in accordance with government guidelines.  We have missed all our lovely clients since the lockdown began in March (it seems so much longer!) and, like yourselves, we’ve missed out on so many special occasions that we would normally have gotten to share with you – such as the arrival of a new baby, an anniversary, a family get together and countless other momentous reasons for you and your loved ones to book a photography session at Hallmark.

Of course, Coronavirus has changed the way we live, shop, work and meet (thank goodness for Zoom over the past few months!!) but we are now able to start back in the studio (or on location) by offering pet, family and Cake Smash sessions to begin with, and then resuming (hopefully) in July/August with the rest of our “normal” studio bookings. We have made lots of changes to the way we will be working in the months ahead to keep everybody as safe as possible, including adding automated hand sanitising units throughout the building and face masks/visors and gloves for all our staff members. We’ve also introduced extra safety measures in both our studio and viewing areas (everyone coming along to a session/viewing with us will receive a copy of our “safe practise guide” which gives comprehensive information on staying safe while visiting us).

It’s been a strange, and often scary, time for everyone but we’d like to thank you for all the lovely messages of support we have received since temporarily having to close – we even celebrated our 30th anniversary as a business during the lockdown (it wasn’t quite as we had planned, but we’re still here to tell the tale and for that we are very grateful). We can’t wait to see you all again soon to thank you personally but, until then, please stay safe and keep well.
