STUDIO portrait sessions are lifestyle which means that Photographer does not need to come close nor hold or touch any of the participants. This also applies to newborn sessions as SPELLBOUND Studio does not offer styled (baby-in-baskets or buckets) type of photos. Photographer will give you instructions from distance and she will wear a mask through out the entire session. There may be minimal contact required for newborn on-the-bean-bag photographs, before which the photographer will again hand sanitise her hands and will ask your verbal consent to hold and position the baby. You do not need to agree to these kind of images and then this part of the session will be skipped all together.

While sessions are booked for ONE FAMILY UNIT only, sessions for families with 3 children or more may not be suitable in the STUDIO as it is a beautifully cosy space. I will then advise for a session to take place outdoor on a beautiful local to the studio Malahide Beach, High Rock or Velvet Strand / Beach in Portmarnock or Bull Island and St Anne’s Park in Dublin 5.

Please note that only the session participants will be allowed into the studio and we kindly ask you not to bring additional family members with you for the session.

If any of the family members have underlying conditions which may put them at risk, please ensure to inform us and we will be happy to schedule a session outdoor with a safe distancing during such a session. If you wish to take a session eg. of your children with their parents, we highly advise for such a session to also take place outdoor. For the convince, it can be planned in the near to the grandparents house park or back garden. Mask will be worn during the entire session and the distance will also be kept.


All touch points, surfaces, floor and props are washed, hard floors and any wooden part of the studio are steam washed and sanitised before and after each session. All used posing fabrics and wraps are washed in 60 degrees and air dried after each session. Any clothes available from the Client Closet incl. children and baby clothing, wraps, hats and blankets are removed after each use, washed according to its lables, air dried and steamed before being returned back into the studio.  Wooden toys are washed in warm soapy water and air dried.

Studio allows for only one session per day in order to ensure a thorough sanitasation of the STUDIO room and for all the used props and items to be washed, dried and returned safe and ready to be used by another client.

Studio is aired after each session and before the next one – in addition window can also be opened during your session to allow fresh air. May not be of your preference during a newborn session – please advise the photographer on your arrival.

Studio has a strict no shoes policy and you will be asked to take off your shoes before you enter into the studio room. Once you walk in, you will also understand and appreciate why we have this policy. The room beautifully airy, bright and cosy – kicking these shoes off and enjoying a few beautiful momens embracing your family and children will only help you relax.


Photographer washes her hands thoroughly before and during each session and Clients will also be asked to thoroughly wash their hands on the arrival. Hand sanitasing will also be required before entering the studio space. Hand sanitising gel will be available in the room and you are welcome to use it any time you wish.

 Having precious family moments captured will be the gift that keeps on giving.

I look forward to hearing from you.
