Lockdown Photos

As a photographer, I typically spend hours every week capturing images of families in times of joy: babies on the way, newborns, siblings, grandparents and more. Those moments of joy are still happening in homes right now, but I can’t be there to capture them (and it breaks my heart).  So, I am focusing on how I can bring people together in the community.

I’m documenting this time by taking a 5-10 minute “Front Steps Portraits” of San Gabriel Valley residents.   Its just what it sounds like.  A quick family portrait on the front steps of your home.

The purpose of this photography fundraiser to bring us together virtually when we might feel isolated.  I want to highlight the faces of our community during a time when we might not see them in passing at the grocery store, coffee shop, on the train or at the gym.  Participating in this project is also an opportunity to step up to help those who need it most right now in the San Gabriel Valley. 

Session Info

I will gift you this session along with 1 high res fully retouched digital image in exchange for your donation on this page of $50 or more.  
On Monday, March 30th & Tuesday, March 31st, I will scoot around town on my way to get food & supplies for my own family and snap super fast images of your family on your front steps.  More dates may come available.

COVID19 Compliant

This is a no touch session, in which I will remain 10 feet away from your family the entire time.  I usually give prizes to kids, but not this time…OCD mommy germ tendencies kicking in.

Who Came Up With This idea?!

Phototographer Cara Soulia from Needham, MA inspired me to launch my own The Front Steps Project™ just like she did.  #thefrontstepsproject on Instagram!
