Hello, I hope you all are staying safe and cozy with your families and you are finding some nuggets of sweetness in the chaos of our quarantine lives. I don’t know about you, but I am still reeling a bit and trying to figure out what my new normal looks like. I know this so far, dogs really like quarantine.
I know many of you are struggling with suddenly working from home AND homeschooling your kids or finding yourself in a profession that is keeping you away from your family when all you want to do is stay home with them and make them feel safe. This sh*t is bananas!
Many micro business owners are struggling and find themselves in a bit of a safety net gap. I fall into this category. I honestly never imagined a situation where I could so suddenly be unable to do what I do for a living.
My lovely sis-in-law to be posted some portraits by John F. Martin Photography , located just outside of Detroit, Michigan. He photographed families in his neighborhood on their porches during the quarantine this week. It looked super fun and I thought it would be a creative way to mark this very weird time in our lives. I felt inspired to offer this type of portrait session to my local friends and clients. I think portraits are a beautiful way to document this historic and absurd moment in time.
So for a limited time, Porch-raits are available as a Waynderful (in honor of my dad, Wayne) Pay What You Can Porch-rait session. Porch-raits are fast, 5 minute portrait sessions on your porch or in front of your home while I maintain a safe distance. Feel free to include extended family members and pets.
Come as you are, dress up, dress down, be super heros or dinosaurs, be fun, be quirky, be silly, be serious, hold up signs! Whatever you would like! Make this your own! I will offer some suggestions and help with posing and try to be the ring-master of your silly circus!
In a couple days I will send you an assortment of 3-5 digital files that are ready to print up to 5×7 at the lab of your choice or share online! Larger prints and wall art will be available for an additional cost. Are you interested in scheduling a Porch-rait session? Click here to fill out the form and get this party started!
Payments can be made via paypal, venmo, zelle or by carrier pigeon, we will work it out. If your family is experiencing a financial loss due to this shut down but would still like to be photographed I am happy to do it. No questions asked. People often feel confused by Pay What You Can – I suggest picking an amount that fits your budget and that you feel is fair. In the past I have had donations ranging from $17 to $250. I have been gifted meat, eggs and cheesecakes. What I really want, more than anything is for us to all get through this together. And have some fun. So if you are in – fill out the form!
