The Porchrait Project Captures Family Spirit

The last ten years I have been able to do what I love. So when Covid-19 forced us all into our homes, I wanted to help bring some normalcy to the lives of many family's affected. I wanted to give them something to look forward to using what I had...plenty of time and my craft.


I have decided to give away free family portraits to anyone who reaches out.  To date, I have photographed north of 150 family's in just two weeks! The PORCHTRAIT project response has been overwhelming. This positive feedback all over the nation and has compelled me to keep this going due to the lift it has been giving these family's and to the people being introduced to their stories on social media.

The reality is, this effort has a expiration date, and with your help, I can continue to photograph family's for free and serve this incredible community in this unique way during these uncertain times.


Thank you so much for considering to support this project. This has been the highlight of my professional career and with your help, we can keep it going.
