Local photographer, families take part in ‘Front Porch Project’

Dawna and Dennis Nelson had fun with the Front Porch Project, posing as Carol Baskins and Joe Exotic.
The coronavirus pandemic is being documented as a major event in the United States and in world history.
Amateur and professional photographers across the U.S. have been documenting this time in history as part of the “Front Porch Project.”
Local photographer Jordan Rasmussen has been one of those photographers taking pictures of families over the past several weeks.
So far, she has taken photos of slightly more than 70 families in the Albion and Newman Grove areas. She has captured families in all types of poses, from funny to serious.
She arranged the photo sessions in advance, and her husband, Casey, drove her around to family homes on the first day. The second day she drove herself.
Jordan, who has a photography business, offered the photo sessions for free, with the option for families to make a free-will donation for families to donate to either the Boone County Food Pantry or the Newman Grove Food Pantry. More than $1,700 was raised for these food pantries.
