When you hear of a world pandemic, that can cause a lot of fear and sadness. But during the crazy, I was able to do some special photos social distancing style. (Don’t worry, I stayed on the curb far from the families and used my big zoom lens, and washed my hands and sanitized my gear to stay safe.)
#TheFrontStepsProject, a “coffee moment” idea between Boston photographer Cara Soulia and her friend Kristen Collins, kicked off in Needham, MA on March 17, 2020. I thought this was a great idea to spread joy, raise money for the Moose Jaw Food Bank, great for my mental health and to do something I love, all while keeping my distance and not spreading germs. It was such an honor to be apart of this project!!
One common thing I heard families say was ‘this was something that they would look forward to’, or ‘this came at the perfect time’ or ‘it was great to get out of our PJ’s and shower.” Whatever the reason, it was such an honor to photograph so many Moose Jaw families during the pandemic.
