Front Porch Potraits
As neighborhoods and communities all over the US started to shelter in place and practice “social distancing” to stop the spread of Covid 19, it became apparent that boredom and feeling cut off from your neighborhood and community was a real problem. Some photographers, including me, started to do Front Porch Portraits.
I posted to the neighborhood Facebook and Next Door groups and let them know that I would come by their house and, from a safe “social distance”, do photos of their families gathered on the front porch. It was a big hit in my Woodstock, GA neighborhood.
This was an easy and fun way to bring the neighborhood together, and offer some smiles and levity during an otherwise serious time.
