About this project
Let me ask you a question, When was the last time you took a family Portrait?
We grow up, kids are born, and loved ones pass away and yet most times we are left with just memories and thoughts. If you’re like me, most of us don’t even have a family portrait to remember and reflect on the good times.
This is a personal moment for me. Last year my oldest sister was diagnosed with Cancer and I realized that I did not have a family portrait. I started asking friends and co-workers about their family portraits and most confessed that they did not have one. This got me to thinking about how many times we take photos that end up getting posted to Facebook and Instagram but yet we don’t have a family picture to hang on the wall.
I have photographed Fashion shows, make-up shoots and models. My Photography has allowed me to work on Concept designs for Major Brands such as Coca-Cola and Motives Make-Up. I have even shot mini concerts at places like the Brooklyn Wave which helped launch the careers of new entertainers, But all the while I never even took a family portrait.
This Summer I am going to donate my time and resources and give back to family, friends, co-workers and my community in general. My "Family Portrait Project" is going to help me achieve this, the donations are really going back to you to help cover the cost of printing your photographs. The Studio Time and my weekends will be donated.
So why KICKSTARTER instead of calling and texting everyone I know? Simple really, I want the world to see that family matters and loved ones need to take the time to get together and share one magical moment in their lives. After all, when the homes are rebuilt, who puts the pictures back on the wall?
So why not HELP ME and give your family the Gift of a Portrait. I will also be visiting cities across America and capturing family life, turn it into an elegant coffee table book for all to see and enjoy.
Risks and challenges
I do not anticipate any major risks. The challenges will be to organize the shoots in a time efficient manner so that I can include as many families as possible over the course of the summer. I am hoping to deliver the Family Portrait Book by Thanksgiving so families can enjoy it.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
