Plymouth Photographer Participates in Front Porch Project
Photographers from all over the country, including one from Plymouth, are documenting families as they deal with COVID-19. They are creating memories that will last long after the pandemic is over.
Photographer Amine Campbell of Emily & Me Photography in Plymouth is in the business of capturing emotions. Now, her lens is focusing on families during the pandemic, helping them to create memories in a time of uncertainty.
“This is something we’ve never seen before, and I feel like this is a time we need to document,” said Campbell.
Campbell is part of a nationwide campaign called “The Front Porch Project,” which photographs families on their front porches from 6 feet away for a small fee or charity donation. Campbell is accepting a minimum $10 donation.
Front Porch Project Helps People Cope During Stressful Time
“Everybody is going through a hard time, struggling, maybe dealing with stress, and maybe a loss of a job, maybe the loss of a family member, so that’s why I’m doing it,” Campbell explained.
So far, Campbell has taken over 60 front porch pictures. On the day CCX News visited with her, the Sundet family of Plymouth was the focus of her lens. They haven’t made a family portrait in years.
Amy Stacy is the matriarch of the family.
“It seemed like a really good opportunity to capture some of the closeness that we’ve been feeling over the last five or six weeks.”
Campbell is grateful to have the Front Porch Project and she’s optimistic about her future.
“I really hope this is going to end soon, and I just want to be able to hug my friends and my family again,” said Campbell.
