Photographer Captures Family Portraits as Food Pantry Fundraiser

By Lina Soblytė | May 13, 2020


Reedsburg photographer, Lauren Almeida, was looking for a way to give back to her community during the COVID-19 pandemic. After doing some research, she decided to begin her own “Front Porch Project.” Lauren takes portraits of families on their front porches or doorsteps in exchange for a donation to the Reedsburg Food Pantry.
