The Front Steps Project

What a time we're experiencing isn't it? Being stuck inside our homes makes us feel alone and isolated but I think we all recognize we're going through this crisis together.

As a family photographer here in Stittsville, I would typically be spending hours each week photographing families in times of joy. Pregnancies, newborns, families, extended families. I know, for a fact, that we are all still experiencing lots of joy inside our homes but not being able to capture that is a sad reality for me right now.

Starting on Monday, March 23 I will be offering quick "Front Step Portraits" for residents in Stittsville. These sessions will be only 5 minutes long and I will email you the digital files directly. In exchange, I am asking you make a good faith donation to the Stittsville Food Bank through this GoFund me Campgain.

I will be posting these photos on my social media accounts, specifically, Facebook and Instagram. I would love for you to share these posts and spread the word!

The purpose of this project is to make us all feel a little less alone and isolated during this time. Unfortunately we are not seeing friends in our community as often as we normally would at coffee shops, gyms, grocery stores or even our workplaces. I really want to highlight our community members through this project.

This is a real opportunity to help people in our community who need it most during this time of need.

The images will be taken OUTSIDE only and I will be at least 10 feet away from each family while capturing these photos. I ask that you not worry about wardrobe, this is not one of those sessions. This is a come as you are, let's capture your family together in front of your home. I want to see who you really are as a family.

To participate in this project please sign up here .

*This project was started by Cara Soulia Photography in Boston* I've decided to bring it to our community and I hope you'll participate.

If there is a high demand for photos, I will add more spots. If you do not get a spot please email me at and I will add you to my waitlist.
