Orange County | Huntington Beach | Family Photographer | The Front Porch Project with the V Family #porchraits

Life amidst a pandemic is definitely different than what we know as “normal.” Our daily, normal lives have shifted, and even work is looking a bit different now, with most people working remotely from home. Dining rooms are now makeshift classrooms, and living rooms are now conference rooms. While this pandemic has changed the landscape of work and life, it has definitely also changed the scope of the photography community — while some of our businesses work with other businesses, some photographers are unable to work, while other photographers have been able to do some sessions. These sessions aren’t what they used to be, with the limitations of social distancing and the current stay-at-home orders.

In comes, The Front Porch Project, inspired by a photographer back East has taken the industry by storm…providing a great option for families still looking to document their family during this unprecedented time. If living through a pandemic isn’t something you want to remember, you will most likely remember it for the rest of your life, and talk about it for future years to come. So, why not commemorate this craziness? I mean, this pandemic is now a part of our story, right?

I got to hang with the V family in front of their home earlier in our quarantine phase, social distancing style from the sidewalk. They met me at the edge of their front steps in their matching holiday pajamas. I will admit, it was weird to arrive at a session and not greet my families in the normal way (I am a big hugger)! A simple wave from across the way was our only way of greetings, which made me a bit sad.

My favorite moment of this session? The casualness of it all — a very real representation of where we are at this very moment in time. I’ll be honest with you, I own a lot of activewear…I mean, yoga pants and even this pandemic has made me realize I don’t have enough yoga pants…(husband, are you reading this?). I have never been so thankful for a washer and dryer in my house these days. This session made me realize after their daughter came out with her quarantine-must-have BACON, that we all have that one thing you can’t live without during this time. What is your must-have-during-quarantine item?
