Neighborhood Pandemic Portriats
In April 2020, as the realities of COVID-19 settled in, I sent an email to our neighborhood listserv requesting families for 'Porch Portraits'. I wanted to capture families as they adjusted to staying-at-home. I had recently lost my job as Development Director for a non-profit, and needed something to do. I photographed 17 neighborhood families. Photo sessions were free-of-charge, with some folks offering to make a donation to a charity of my choice (awesome idea). All photo sessions were approx. 20 minutes, taken from 6+ plus feet away using a 50mm, 85mm or 105mm. I wore a mask. Below are some of my favorite images including some fun socially distant activities (birthday parades are awesome). I seriously love our neighborhood.
