Front Porch Project Portraits CT – Day 2
After a full day of practice on Day 1, I knew what I was up against with the harsh sun and limited ability to angle people the way I needed to. Most of Day 2 included fellow mask-sewers I’d only met online and finally got to meet in person. What a great day!!
Front Porch Project Portraits CT – Day 1
I was so excited to get out of the house and see people!! Thank you all for participating and showing up with smiles. I think we were all a bit chatty and I loved it. haha Here are some of my favorites.
Front Porch Project Portraits CT
We’re back to check in on you. How are you coping? Are you keeping busy and getting some sunshine?
We’re a little late to the Front Porch Project game because we’ve been using every spare minute to make masks for those in need. Now that we’ve had a few requests for front porch portraits, we’re here with cameras ready!
We’ve got rain all week but this Sunday, May 3, is supposed to be gorgeous. So we’re making a day of it!
We’ll spend 5-10 minutes across the lawn from you and your household, creating portraits to remember this time. You’ll receive the digital images at no charge within a few days of the shoot and may use them however you choose.
One rule: No shopping for outfits or props. Come as you are. Even if you’re in your PJs.
If you would like to make a donation to a charity in exchange for our services, please consider donating to Sewing Face Masks – Farmington Valley CT to help purchase supplies to make masks for essential workers in need. As a group, we’ve made over 15,000 masks! So many more are still needed.
If you’re interested in having a front porch portrait session, let us know by Friday at 5PM. Include your address in your message to us. We’ll then plan out our route and send you a time frame for your portrait session on Sunday. If there are any times that don’t work for you and your family, let us know and we’ll do our best to work around it.
Weekly Social Media Party & Giveaway During Covid-19
So quarantine is fun, huh? I don’t know about you guys, but the Denney household has kept itself occupied by focusing on art, rushing through the show Devs in 2 days, being as inventive as possible with food, and collecting our dog’s shed fur, which we meticulously braid into an ever-growing totem in our living room.
The totem’s name is Frank, or Mr. Totem, because even though we’re in quarantine, we’re still a society and respectful titles are important. And late last night, during the braiding trance we have instead of sleep, Frank asked us to create a fun little game we can play with our friends.
If this was a movie trailer, I imagine this is the part where the audience would discover that this is for a new Saw movie. But it’s not. And I can promise with a solid 76% certainty that playing this game will in no way enslave you for eternity to Frank the Dog Hair Totem.
Here’s how it’s going to work:
Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 1PM April 20 through May 22, we’ll post a prompt on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts. All answers for all posts need to be submitted by 10AM Saturday when we do the drawing. One drawing per week total.
Some prompts will be trivia (list-style) questions, some will require you to post an image (goofy or serious), and some will dig into your repertoire of song titles. To make it more fun, don’t use Google.
Every “answer” will count as an entry into our weekly random drawing. Multiple entries per person are acceptable unless we say otherwise for a particular post. We’re keeping it chill with rules but if you answer with nonsense or 8 of the same but slightly different photo *raised brows*, you’ll be disqualified for the week.
You can win more than once so keep participating!
What are we giving away each week?
A $100 gift voucher that can be used towards a private photo shoot!
We’ll see you on Monday on social media! Meanwhile, we’ll be braiding away so as to appease Frank.
