#TheFrontStepsProject

What a time to be alive...

With business at a stand still and all of us doing our part to slow the spread of the Corona Virus by staying home,

I have decided to take part in #TheFrontStepsProject which was started by Cara Soulia, a Boston Area Photographer. 

Like most of you, I've been staying home, adjusting to a new normal.  
Fortunately I have been able to get out in my neighborhood to take walks with my family and enjoy the outdoors.

By joining #TheFrontStepsProject, I will be bringing my camera along with me on these walks and

will be photographing families for just a couple of minutes (literally less than 5 minutes) on their front steps or front lawn.

I will stay on the street or in driveways, always 10+ feet away with a long 70-200 lens.

No need to get dressed up or match your outfits with one another. Feel free to stay in your pajamas, keep the kids' bike helmets on,

or even have a cocktail in hand!

In exchange for this photo, I am asking that you make a good faith donation to 

Cara Soulia put it perfect by saying "The purpose of this project is to bring us together when we might feel isolated. I aim 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."

I will contact you via text on the day that I plan to be walking on your street. I typically go out in the evening hours (between 4:30 and 6:30)

A couple more things ...

As of Friday, March 28, sign ups are currently on hold due to the overwhelming response. Once I visit all of the families that have currently signed up, I will begin to reply to new families. Thank you to everyone who has participated in this movement and paid forward the smiles and generosity!
