Melanie had to close her family business, like many people, due to the government’s lockdown, but last week she was able to reopen.

Photography for Little People have been trading since 2005, with many families throughout the North East proudly displaying their artistic photography at home.

Melanie has worked with families that have had their babies during lockdown, and their stories are incredible. She has gone above and beyond with PPE to keep these families, especially the babies, safe. She feels blessed, but guilty at the same time that she has held some of these babies before their own grandparents. It’s been an emotional week with a lot of preparation and expense.

From one of her recent clients:

“I went to Melanie on the 15th June For a newborn shoot. At first, I was a little apprehensive because of the current coronavirus pandemic. As soon as I entered the building I felt at ease. I could see the precautions/changes that had been put in place, the studio had been deep cleaned, there was hand sanitiser, face masks and shoe coverings at the door ready for us to put on and use. Melanie was very professional throughout the whole shoot. The studio was immaculately clean, there was also hand sanitiser for us to use during the shoot, the props were set out ready (a different set of props for each child) to avoid contamination. Melanie wore a face mask & apron throughout our visit to ensure our baby girl was safe. I felt comfortable and relaxed knowing Melanie went above and beyond to ensure we were as safe as possible. I would recommend Melanie to anybody she is amazing and so are our photos I can’t wait to get our final piece.”
