PLEASE SEE IMPORTANT UPDATES AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST!
I’d like to offer you an opportunity to have a few moments of joy during this challenging time of social distancing and self-isolation with your family. I’m offering free “Porch Portraits” family photo sessions. It’s a simple 5-10 minute session where I stand outside your house and photograph your family, from a safe distance, posed on your porch or front steps.
This is a wonderful opportunity to get your kids involved. You can jointly decide as a family how to dress, how you want to pose, etc. Wear the same color clothes? Dress in scrubs? Pose with your teddy bears? Want to dress in your Star Trek or Hogwarts uniforms? Got another idea for clothing or props that reflects your family’s interests? Cool!
What do you get? A complete set of images optimized for sharing on social media.
What does it cost? Nothing! I know that this is a tough time for many people—myself included—and I don’t want a current lack of income or reduced income to prevent you and your family from enjoying this experience.
Finances permitting, a contribution of $20 to your local food pantry or volunteer first responders is requested. And, if you able to order prints at my regular prices (starting with budget-priced $20 8x10s) to support my local, Highland Park-based business, that would really help and be greatly appreciated but again, no obligation. (All payments via PayPal so there is no handling of money, checks or credit cards.)
If you want to schedule your family’s Porch Portrait session, please fill out this form and I’ll get back to you with your scheduled time. (Please note the schedule is subject to change based on weather conditions.)
All sessions are contactless. They are conducted from at least 10 feet away, and the photographer wears a mask per CDC guidelines.
If you know someone anywhere in Central NJ who would appreciate this service, please feel free to pass this message along.I hope this brings a little excitement and positive energy to fuel your day for you and your family. Stay safe and healthy!
Photography is a permitted business in New Jersey according to the document “Businesses Permitted to Operate under Current Executive Orders/Administrative Orders List” as of May 4, 2020.
