BOO! Want to participate in #TheFrontStepsProject | Halloween?



October 31 is the most fun COMMUNITY holiday, right?

Don’t we need a little FUN this year?


Halloween 2020 looks different for everyone.

We think it’s the perfect day for spreading some smiles and connecting with neighbors (from afar!).



Want to join?

Here’s how it works:

On the afternoon of Saturday, October 31, a couple Barrie photographers and I are donating our time to taking fun and casual images of Barrie residents in their Halloween costumes. If you’re dressing a little early or planning to make the whole day one to remember, let’s get it on camera!


We’ll schedule our quick drop-by between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm. You’ll get a specific range of time for when I will arrive and a text just beforehand. I’ll swing by, get a great shot of your crew on your #FrontSteps or in the yard (yes, from afar!) and head off. Your image will arrive via email within the next few days.


By signing up, you agree to donate to the Barrie Christmas Cheer. The Barrie Christmas Cheer Program brings a smile to your young neighbors by helping any income-eligible families celebrate Christmas by providing Christmas dinner and gifts for the kids. This is one of my most favourite compassionate annual charity events in Barrie. Please support them! 




Yes, I’d love to participate in

#TheFrontStepsProject | Halloween!

Barrie, ON residents only, please! This is a first-come, first-serve event. As of this posting, I have availability for about 75 stops. Know a Barrie photographer who would like to join? I welcome them and will happily help organize a route for them!



#TheFrontStepsProject aims to bring communities together (virtually and absolutely with strict social distancing!) in a time when we are isolated.

Our purpose is rally communities to support local nonprofits, organizations and businesses.

We are to ensure that we are adhering to very strict social distancing and health guidelines as dictated by our community.

All credit to these amazing ladies! A fantastic creative community of photographers from Needham, MA. @CaraSoulia and @FindingForty are the originators of #TheFrontStepsProject.
