Thank you to all the families that have participated! This project is now completed. I am now wrapping up the last photo sessions that have already been booked and I am in post production preparing the portraits for the families I have photographed. I am doing them in the order that families were photographed — thank you for your patience!
It has been a life-changing experience for me and getting to know you and your families has been a ray of sunshine in a very disconcerting time for all of us.
Stay healthy, stay safe, and I look forward to seeing you soon!
THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!
The Project: To photograph my neighbors on your home’s front porch or through the front window of your home while we both are applying the current CDC approved guidelines for social distancing.
I will be photographing from that safe distance using a longer zoom lens creating an environmental portrait of you, your family.You will receive one photograph as my gift through a digital download and you are free to share and print while allowing me to create this work and share it on my website, social networks, media and in printed materials. I will use my judgment as an artist/photographer and hand pick the best of the best for your final photograph and the project. This project has been featured on NBC 6 News and The Wall Street Journal.
I am looking for you, my neighbors in Miami/Miami Beach to see if you would like to be a part of this project. I have already photographed 80 families for this project and once I hit my goal of 100, I will be wrapping up photo shoots at the end of May 2020. This is entirely voluntary.
I am asking you to make a donation in any amount directly to "Feeding South Florida" in the name of this project on behalf of Tracey Hagen Photography.
I will capture the portraits while we are both being fully compliant with current CDC guidelines from the sidewalk while you and your family are safely on your front porch, front steps or, if you prefer, inside your home visible through a front door or front window. Totally up to you and whatever makes you feel most secure. You can make it fun with wearing hats, funny signs or a nice family shot. I just want it to be a photograph that you can have for the future when you are sharing your experience of Covid 19 quarantine to future generations. Feel free to dress in the way that you would like to be seen. There’s no right way for this project.
I will give you a link to download a high resolution image with my compliments and all I ask is that you would sign a model release so that I may share the photos on my social networks, media and on my website and perhaps create some type of fine art gallery exhibition, book or printed piece once we come on the other side of this pandemic. Anything is possible.
As the artist/photographer I will choose the final image to gift you for free and to include in this project. If you would like additional images or prints from your shoot, will be available to purchase at $97.00. There is no obligation to purchase additional images.
How does that sound?Do you have any questions?
Please note, due to the high volume of requests, I cannot guarantee I will be able to schedule your photo shoot but, I will certainly try my hardest.
THANK YOU for everyone who has participated in this project. Stay Home and Stay Safe!
