We are Covid ready 

In light of the UK government guidelines issued to all schools and nurseries following the outbreak of Covid-19, we are adapting the way that we work in order to be able to continue our service. As a priority Roz & Kirsty Photography is committed to keeping its staff members, the children we capture, and associated teaching staff safe.

We have been working very hard behind the scenes to develop a contactless workflow process which allows us a way to capture your children’s portraits

The photo day itself will be carried out with the UK Governments and Department for Education’s most up-to-date Guidelines relating to the safety of the students and staff involved.

The photo day will be the only time any member of Roz & Kirsty photography’s staff will need to be on site.

We can now offer a full contactless system by conducting the proofing, ordering process solely online. In order to achieve this, we will now need additional information

We are aware that GDPR plays a part in all data collection, we have a brand new ‘Photo Day Registration‘ page. The school/nursery will be required to send this link to parents ahead of the photo day so that they can register their child/children to be photographed. As this is an ‘opt-in’ option each parent/guardian will have to agree for us to process the relevant data in order for us to facilitate the contactless workflow within GDPR. We cannot photograph any children that we have not had prior consent

Each parent/guardian will then be contacted directly via e-mail with details of how they can view and purchase their child’s images through an online secure password protected gallery system.

All orders are then dispatched to the school for distribution
