During the current health crisis, we can all imagine that service organizations like food pantries have additional burdens, but did you know that children in our own community need our help through Lonestar CASA now more than ever. CASA stands for Court Appointed Special Advocates and this organization represents children who are in foster care due to abuse and neglect and advocates for them to find a safe and permanent home. I’ve been contemplating ways to give back during this challenging time and when I reached out to Lonestar CASA, I was thrilled by their excited response.
Across the nation, photographers from all over have begun taking ‘front porch sessions’ to document social distancing for families. Families come out to their porch and are photographed from the street.
Due to the current guidelines in my area (photography is deemed non-essential and we are under a shelter-in-place order), I haven’t been able to get out and participate in this movement. But it occurred to me recently that, though I may not be allowed just yet, I could offer these sessions over the summer as a special mini session event. I am currently living by the mantra that ‘this too shall pass’, and I have great faith that restrictions will begin to be loosened soon! If we need to change plans due to changing requirements, we will do that.
I absolutely love meeting families in their most intimate spaces. In-home sessions tell your story as a family better than most other types of sessions. During this strange time, I won’t be coming into your home, and I will abide by all current local requirements. But I will document you at your home. Out front.
So grab your family. Dress up or come as you are. Grab your tricycles and your lawn chair. Or just sit down out front. I’ll bring my longer lenses and document you being you.
And the very best news? $100 from each session will go to Lonestar Casa!
