No, I would not host them again.
"How easy were they to work with? Not at all. To start, they both showed up using their masks incorrectly and were very annoyed about our COVID-19 cleaning protocol when entering the studio. The model, Shalayna, was rude when voicing her disregard for our safety cleaning procedure. Did the booking go as planned? No. Normally we request a 4-hour minimum when booking on weekends but in this case, since all they described was a simple halloween shoot, an exception was made for them. The issue started when they failed to mention how much privacy was needed. Our studio, while on the smalled end, is just enough and perfect for creatives. In order to facilitate your visit, there is always someone in the studio ensuring everything runs smoothely. Due to extenuating circumstances, my son was also with me in the studio, though that doesn't happen often. I did not think this would be a problem, as he was out of the way at all times. But as it turned out, this was also troublesome as they interpreted it to mean even less privacy. When asked for a place to change, I politely offered our bathroom down the hall or even the option to use our V-Flats that are enough to cover the model completely. At this point, nothing seems to be good enough--there is a problem with everything. I tried and tried to help and make them comfortable, but their attitudes continued to be rude, going as far as completely disregarding my 4 year old son when he tried to be friendly and introduce himself to the pair on their way in. Never have I experienced anything like this with other customers Did they follow the Host rules? Not at all. They did not take COVID-19 seriously and failed to fully comply with our safety protocol. "
