The Front Steps Project :: Minnetonka, MN

During these times of uncertainty, family comes first.  We would love nothing more than to give back to our fabulous Minnetonka community during this difficult time.  Based on the idea of fellow photographer Cara Soulia (Needham, MA), we are bringing #TheFrontStepsProject to your home! 

Here’s how it works:

We will come on location to your home for a 5-minute, outdoor family portrait on your front step while respecting social distancing guidelines of at least 6 feet away.

This is not a typical get-dressed-up-and-pose-for-the-photographer session. Want to stand outside in your sweatpants, pajamas and slippers? Sounds good to us. Kids in mismatched clothes but you’re thrilled they got dressed? Love it!  This is your time to embrace each other as a family, and show us your real and raw emotions.

After your session, we will email you the digital file of your portrait.  In exchange, we ask you to make a donation of a minimum of $50.00 to the Minnetonka ICA Food Shelf  through this GoFundMe Campaign.

We will be posting these images on our Facebook , Instagram  and Twitter  using the hashtag #thefrontstepsproject. Please follow our social media pages and share these posts. Let’s spread the word! 

Please email us and provide the following information:

·         Names and ages of all family members {pets included}!

·         Your Address

·         Best number to reach you at

We will contact you to arrange a date and time that works for your family.  All sessions will be held in the afternoon.

Looking forward to connecting with you, and thank you in advance for your support!

With Love,

Shari and Alex
