Welcome to MLD Photographic

***Business Announcement regarding Coronavirus***

*Update – Sat 6th June 2020*

We are opening again from Mon 15th June 2020

After the Government announced that from 15th June photography studio’s can re-open, this is only allowed providing that certain measures can be put in place to reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus.

After a visit to the studio a few days ago I am confident that the 2 metre rule can be adhered to. There is enough space to maintain this rule and cleaning is carried out regularly. Cleaning of equipment, flooring, door handles and switches will be covered several times a day along with the use of hand sanitiser gel.
My priority is keeping everyone who comes in to my studio as safe as possible.

The following sessions are available in the studio:

Family portrait sessions – max. of 4 people.
Cake smash and splash sessions.
Only 1 session per day (in the studio)

I am available for outdoor family sessions and of course following social distancing rule.

Newborn sessions will not be available until July as close contact is required for this and the risks are currently too high. This will be reviewed weekly and I will keep everyone posted on developments for newborn photography.

I am still taking wedding bookings for later this year, 2021 and 2022.

Hand sanitiser and wipes will be available for cleaning of hands and equipment in the studio.

I am so excited to be back in the studio!!
Please continue to stay safe and I’ll see you soon

*Update – Mon 11th May 2020*

With the latest update from the government regarding the possibility of easing lockdown, I am looking at ways to possibly start outdoor sessions again. These sessions will still follow the social distancing rules and payments will only be accepted via bank transfer and over the phone – update to follow regarding these sessions.

My studio still remains closed but this will be reviewed regularly and I will open as soon as it is safe to do so. This means that cake smash and splash, newborn and family portraits are still not available. I am taking bookings for weddings for late 2020 and 2021 and available to chat about this so please get in touch.

I really miss being in the studio and working alongside my lovely customers and having a cuddle of your gorgeous babies. I am currently working on some new ideas for different photo sessions and new products to show off your stunning images, watch this space!

Please continue to stay safe and I’ll see you all as soon as possible.

Fri 20th March 2020

I’ve been pretty quiet on here for a while since this awful virus started and at the moment myself and my family are ok and healthy. I have been listening and following the guidance of the government and NHS very closely. With the latest figures and information about this virus I will be closing the studio as from Friday 20th March. This is for the health and safety of everyone. The studio is always cleaned after every photo session and props are cleaned and washed to make sure they are as clean as possible in order to minimise the risk of passing any germs on to others, especially to newborn babies. 

I am still working but from home. Your edited photos will be uploaded to an online gallery for you to view at home and to make a choice for ordering. Your order will then be posted to you – subject to supplier availability as the majority of them are closing for a while during this pandemic.

I have contacted every customer that had a booking with me in the studio. The majority of bookings have been rearranged and everyone has been lovely and understanding. This really is a hard time for people and working together will help us all get through this.

I have also been in touch with couples who have wedding bookings with me. I will try my best to accommodate all date changes and work with you all to make arrangements as smooth as possible. I am still be taking bookings for weddings in 2021 and 2022.

Stay safe everyone, Mel x
