The Safe Operation in a COVID-19 World


I think it’s important to provide a safe environment for all during this uncertain time of Covid-19. I will be adhering to guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and local authorities.

A Covid-19 pre-session waiver is required for all sessions.

Sessions can be booked with an understanding that the schedule might change depending on the advice regarding Covid-19.

Here is what I will do to keep us all safe:

  • I will ensure that I have not had any symptoms of illness, or confirmed cases of sickness in my family/friends I’ve been in contact with, for at least 14 days.
  • I will wear a mask, wash hands, and social distance when possible.
  • Equipment and common areas will be sanitized after each session. Disinfectant wipes/spray will be used on any surfaces to clean props/materials prior to the shoot.
  • Galleries & product ordering will be done online.

Here’s what I ask YOU to do to help keep us all safe:

  • I require a waiver to be completed, signed, and send back to me no later than 5 days prior to the planned session, see waiver below.
  • If you, any household members, or others you’ve come into contact with have had symptoms of illness, confirmed illness, or have traveled within 7 days prior to your session, I require you to contact me to reschedule.

For school photography:

To minimize the risk of exposure children will only be photographed when accompanied by a teacher; no family members will be allowed to be present during the shoot.


Client is hereby notified and agrees that:

1. While the State of Kansas has eased or eliminated various COVID-19 based restrictions on businesses, the conduct and performance of the services being provided by Orange Sun Studio LLC are subject to those rules in place at the time the photography services are to be performed.
2. Based upon the scope of the social distancing restrictions in place at the time of the photography services, certain aspects of the photographer/client interaction may be altered by necessity.
3. Client and all members of Client’s party agree to abide by the social distancing measures in force at the time of their session or event. Client and members of Client’s party explicitly agree and understand that failure to adhere to such social distancing measures places them at increased risk of COVID-19 exposure or transmission.

4. Client and members of Client’s party assume all risks associated with potential COVID-19 transmission or exposure in relation to the photography services being provided and accept sole responsibility for an illness, injury, damages, claims or expense arising therefrom regardless of the identity of the person alleged to be at fault for such transmission or exposure.
5. As consideration for this waiver, Orange Sun Studio LLC agrees to waive any liability or claim against Client or members of Client’s party for COVID-19 transmission or exposure.
6. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Waivers contained in Sections 4 and 5 of this Notice and Waiver shall not be interpreted to prohibit actions or claims against persons who knowingly participate in the photography services while exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms or who knowingly participate while having an active COVID-19 infection.
