Pre-Session Preparation

Paragraph

We created these two guides to help inspire you with some ideas and tips for: 
What to Wear
Hair and Make-Up

Check these out for help brainstorming your look!

Inspiration + Info

1.

Send me a selfie and photos of each individual outfit you’re considering and accessories laid out so I can help style your look and your hair and make-up artist will start thinking about enhancing your unique look. I will suggest backdrops and sets that work best with your color scheme so I have it all ready for you when you arrive. 

Send us photos

2.

You’ll have a one on one 15 min phone call with your Spark Studio Beauty Expert so she can hear what sort of look you’re thinking about, offer suggestions based on your specific look and she’ll send you recommendations for a lipstick to purchase and bring to your session. All other make-up will be provided.

Health Confirmation + Release

One week before your session, you will receive a health release to confirm that you, as well as all household members, do not currently have, nor have experienced the symptoms listed above within the last 14 days as well as other considerations. You may view the release here.

4.

It has been shown that the chance that COVID19 can be transmitted by close personal contact indoors, and increased over longer periods of time. For this reason, we will be limiting the amount of time spent together in the studio, even if both people are wearing a mask. We have installed medical grade HEPA filtration devices to purify + circulate the air

The Day of Your Session

Paragraph

Each person will receive a contactless temperature check upon arrival to the studio, and the temperature will be recorded according to state guidelines until we are instructed otherwise.  If a fever is present, session will be rescheduled to for a minimum of two weeks. Masks will be worn by the Studio Staff, Hair and Make-Up Team, and Clients whenever possible (pretty much any time except when you're in front of the camera!)
 

Upon Your Arrival

All make-up tools will be sterilized prior to client’s arrival.
Disposable mascara wands will be used.
Powder + Shadow will be pre-portioned out

Your  Spark Studio Beauty Expert will wear a mask the entire time they are in the studio.
You will wear a mask: 
- During Hair Styling
- During Eye Make-Up application
Your mask will be removed for the rest of the make-up application. For the final step, you'll use the lipstick you and your Spark Studio Beauty Expert helped choose on your consult call, and apply it with her guidance for a perfect look.

Hair and Make-Up Considerations

Hand washing and/or sanitizing stations (where water is not available) will be available in every room.  
Your photographer (me!) and any Spark Studio Team members present will wear a mask the entire time. 
During your session, no mask is needed. Please put it back on once we have completed the photography portion. Thank you!

During Your Session

We are cleaning before and after all studio sessions. You can see the date, time and scope of last cleaning in a log that will be on display in the studio.

Studio Cleaning Practices

Paragraph

Wipe down with Disinfectant wipes/spray all surfaces clients and/or our team touch. Examples include: Doorknobs, bathroom faucets, drawer handles, light switches

30 minutes of stationary hospital grade UV light exposure in each room for overall room disinfect

We use a UV light wand to specifically target high touch areas to disinfect porous surfaces such as upholstered furniture which cannot be wiped down

All sheets, pillow casing, and wardrobe used or touched by the client or team will be bagged up and washed on a sanitation cycle

Hospital Grade HEPA Filters will run in each room 30 minutes to clear the air before and after each session, and through the client's time in the studio.
