The Front Door Selfie

The front door selfie #thefrontdoorselfie #thefrontstepsproject The Front Door Selfie - Our Family #thefrontdoorselfieFamily portrait on the front steps of our family...not quite in front of the front door, but it will have to do for now! Also...we'll use our front door too.

I saw a post today about a photographer, Cara Soulia Photography, who has begun to do quick free family portraits in Boston of people on their front steps (#thefrontstepsproject) and the family donates to a local charity. At first, I thought it could be a great way to help raise the moral of everyone in Culver, Plymouth, South Bend and beyond and also give back to the community. Some people can't do this right now though because they are in a state mandated "stay in place". Then as I started to think through it and use my nurse practitioner brain, I decided I would offer something a little different instead. You stay home with your family, take a selfie for now, then make a donation to a charity that is serving your community in this time of need. Then when it's safe to be socially non-distant, I'll schedule a time to come do a quick five minute family portrait session of you and your family with your front door. 

You see, we really all need to just stay home right now to flatten the curve for Covid-19. There really isn't any denying it and I want to do my part. But I also love the idea of capturing families, since that is my favorite type of session! We are all home with family right now, so it's easy to get everyone in for a quick selfie and everyone has a front door. We also need to see our friend's and family's faces on social media, because the connection helps. Thus "The Front Door Selfie" #thefrontdoorselfie was born! 

Here's how you participate: 

1) Send a selfie of you and your family to me in front of your front door to [email protected] and let me know you're in! It can be from inside your front door or outside...or any door in your home! Also include a receipt from a donation to your charity of choice with a note that says #thefrontdoorselfie 

Since I travel all over and will again in the future, even if you're in Rochester, NY; Annapolis, MD; St. Petersburg, FL; Tampa, FL; Chicago, IL and beyond...join on in!

2) Let me know if I have permission to share your selfie and I will! 

3) When Covid-19 is not a worry any longer for any of us, I'll reach out and set up a quick session (five minutes!) with you to photograph your family in front of your front door. You'll receive a digital file of your family in front of your front door for taking part in this community movement. 

4) Until we meet in person, stay safe and stay well! Please do your part to stop the spread and flatten the curve!!! 

My charity of choice (donate what you can)...but you can pick whatever you feel is a best fit for your community: 

Marshall County Neighborhood Center Endowment Fund 

My photographer colleagues - Want to participate? Please share because we are all better in this world, together!
