So clearly I don’t need to tell you all how things are crazy right now? I’m sure you already know, right?!
How are we all doing social distancing? I hope you are doing your best to keep your distance, staying at home, so we can flatten the curve.
This time of year is when I start to get excited, the weather starts to get nicer and the trees and flowers start to bloom & I’m ready to get out and photograph families together and it feels great.
Well that’s not the case now. Everyone is feeling lots of things and as a photographer I’m feeling a little bummed thinking about all the portrait sessions, weddings and events that are going to be postponed. It is of course if the right thing to do and it absolutely needs to be done, but it’s also a bummer.
A friend shared this project with me and suggested it was something I do. So we’re going to see what we can do! Big shout out to Needham photographer Cara Soulia for starting the #frontstepproject and encouraging other photographer’s to also take up the charge and take it to their communities. I’m a Chelmsford photographer, but I grew up in Lowell (and will always say I’m from Lowell) & I want to bring it to these areas.
I’ll be taking 5 minute, “Front Steps Portraits” at your home. I’ll be keeping my distance shooting far away. You don’t have to dress up, just grab your kids or partner, your pets and get together for a photo at your home. What I ask is that you consider making a small donation to the Arthritis Foundation or another charity that is important to you. The Arthritis Foundation is near and dear to our hearts as our daughter Prue has JIA (Juvenile Arthritis). http://tinyurl.com/Pruewalk
I’ve connected with local photographer Allie.photo to help photograph some of the families that have reached out to her, shout out to Allie for getting this started in our area & allowing me to jump on it with her.
I’m planning to photograph these on Tuesday and Friday between 4pm-6:30pm. Fill out the details below so I can start organizing the route to be the most time efficient! Can’t wait to photograph you (from a socially acceptable distance)
