#TheFrontStepsProject, a “coffee moment” idea between Boston photographer Cara Soulia and her friend Kristen Collins, kicked off in Needham, MA on March 17. In these crazy times most of us are placed in Shelter including myself and are trying to get through these times the best we can! I decided to participate in the worldwide project to bring a moment of happiness and solidarity in our little neighborhood.

The way it works:

Please use the below form to sign up. If you know any interested neighbors please spread the word ! I will come and photograph you outside of your Brooklyn home from 10ft away while keeping social distancing in mind. This will be a 5 min session of your family or just you! Wear anything you like! Be silly , be dressed up?  Bonus if you could hold up a sign of something positive thats come out of this time for you. Just want to walk out with no planning no dress up? Love it ! Show the chaos of everyday life in these times? Awesome! be YOU!


All I ask of you is that you support a local business of your choosing and make a donation of any amount you can. I have some suggestion below if you need.

Many of you have been inquiring about longer sessions so now I have added an option for extended sessions. These sessions will be

$125 for 15 mins and you will receive about 10 digitally edited photographs. I know things are tough for everyone right now so if you cannot make an additional donation to a charity its ok. These sessions make for a great gift to an expecting family , a new family , an essential worker or someone special in your life. 

After you send me a proof of your donation you will receive a couple photos of your session digitally.

To minimize my time spent outside I will group and plan streets and neighborhoods so please bear with me on timings. 

I will be posting the photos on my instagram page with your permission @thebabyphotographer.
