This project was an enormous success. We are still adding up the total donations to the Food Bank but they are close to $2000.
I will be doing a few final Front Steps Project photos on my street this week, however, we will be pushing the "pause" button for a little while. We look forward to starting our sessions again some time in the future.
We want to support the current messaging of people staying home as much as possible.
Peninsula Photographers Jo-Ann Way (Nuttycake Photography), Tracey Scott (Tracey Scott Photography) and Janis Jean (Janis Jean Photography) have joined virtual hands (from at least 6 foot distance) to help raise money for the Saanich Peninsula Food Bank. The three local photographers are offering to take five minute ‘Front Steps Portraits” of Saanich Peninsula residents from a distance in exchange for a donation to the local food bank.
These women have been inspired by Massachusetts photographer Cara Soulia Photography who started #thefrontstepsproject in her hometown.
We are in unprecedented times right now and most people and families are self isolating at home. This is an opportunity to have a photograph taken to record your bond as a family and as a community supporting others.
Each photographer will be traveling around the Saanich Peninsula and taking family photos outside of your home on your front steps. We will be at least 10 feet away from your front steps and your family.
The session will be brief, likely just 5 minutes. This is not a typical get-dressed-up-and-pose-for-the-photographer session. Want to stand outside in your pajamas and slippers? Sounds good! Kids in mismatched clothes but you’re thrilled they got dressed? Fantastic. Kids enjoying their favourite board game - bring it for the photo!
After your quick session, the photographers will email you the digital file of your portrait. In exchange, it is requested you to make a good faith donation to the Saanich Peninsula Food Bank.
The photographers will be posting these images using the hashtag #thefrontstepsproject. Please share these posts. Let’s spread the word!
