Porch Portraits In The Time of Corona

Thank you

We are living in unprecedented times.

With the recent closings of schools, dance school and businesses - basically our lives as we know it - has shut down.  My business and events have had to be rescheduled or canceled.  

It is a difficult time for so many and I am grateful that we are able to do something.  This Project is to photograph my neighbors on your home's front porch or through the front window of your home while we both are applying the current CDC approved guidelines for social distancing.

I will be photographing from that safe distance and using a longer zoom lens creating an environmental portrait of your family.  You will be able to share them to your social media from our Facebook page.  Thank you for allowing me to create this work and share it on my website, social networks and in printed materials.  

Remember the great painting by Grant Woods, American Gothic, depicting a husband & wife in front of an IOWA home. 

Would you like to Participate?

I am looking for you, my neighbors to see if you would like to be a part of this.  This is entirely voluntary.

There is no charge.  If you would like to schedule a time for your session (they will take 5-10 minutes) just send us a message and we will send you a model release and get your appointment set up.
