Photographer Rachael Cramp is looking for Crookwell families in self-isolation to snap from the kerb in their front lawn, by their front door or on their veranda for a project that will document this unprecedented time.

Families who would like to take part can contact Mrs Cramp at no cost to have their portrait taken this Friday or Saturday.

"I want to document this in a safe way plus have some fun with family photos. I have a telephoto lens so I will not be coming onto the property, I will be doing this safely from the street kerb," she said.

The project was inspired by her Canadian friend Lori Loree who created #Nantonporchproject to photograph families on their porches as she socially distanced herself on the street.

"I think it is super important that we document this incredibly trying time for our community and for our children in years to come. We will be talking about 2020 for the rest of our lives; it's been bush fires, drought and now a pandemic," Mrs Cramp said.

Her first photo (pictured above) was of her children having fun on the farm ten days into social distancing.

"They have been building forts and just being kids, blissfully unaware of what's going on when you leave the farm gate," she said.

The #Crookwellfromthecurb portraits will also be fun and help to raise the spirits of locals, Mrs Cramp said.
