2020 PORCHtrait Project
Compliments of Lauren Smith Photography
WE ARE in it together & WE WILL get through it together!
Thank you for your support!
WHAT IS THE 2020 PORCHtrait PROJECT?
During these challenging and uncertain times I want to offer a complimentary opportunity for members of my beloved community to document their family in a “PORCH”trait – preserving their memory of this time forever. This is your photo to customize and you can plan and prepare anything you would like as long as it happens in the front of your home! Maybe even put on pants or makeup for the first time in a month?!!
HOW DO THESE WORK?
If you can get at least five families in your neighborhood interested in a "PORCH"trait, I will schedule the group for a day and then assign individual family time windows.
On your scheduled day, I will travel to your home (staying a safe distance away) to photograph your family the style of your choice (ex. posed/silly) on your front porch/yard. I will spend about 10 minutes taking photos - that's it! Within the following few days you will be emailed the photos in a gallery to be downloaded for print and social media.
I ask that you are available at least 20 minutes before your scheduled window just in case I am running ahead of schedule. You will receive a phone call from me letting you know I am outside your home and ready to photograph your family. You can then assemble outside and communicate to me what you’re looking to capture.
WHY IS THERE NO CHARGE?
I believe that during these uncertain times we all deserve a little bit of a treat. Therefore there is no charge for this type of session, but donations to the cause are being accepted and are always appreciated. 50% of donated proceeds will be donated to The Chester County Food Bank. That money will be used to provide food for families in crisis because of the outbreak.
