There are common themes across each of the families that I photographed. One is that they are all looking for a good, positive moment in a really dark scary time. Two, that most families found unexpected gratitude for things that they would have overlooked before, like cooking, making bread, or finding disinfectant on the shelf. A third theme that is prevalent is how much they appreciated quality time with each other. To be forced to slow down, and just exist together gave many a new perspective on their relationships. These are general themes observed, but it’s not the case for all, as you’ll read in this book.
Inside this book are stories from 250+ families, and as you read, you’ll find connections to your own life, that will resonate beyond coincidence. This pandemic is a shared experience and as you make your way along this journey, you’ll feel seen, connected, and likely very emotional. You’ll Laugh at some of the silly photos, and some of the stories will have you stopping in your tracks, sharing the grief and pain some families went through.
