On Friday, I shared that Southborough’s Chelsea Bradway was looking to launch a special project in Town. She has, and you’re all invited to participate.

Bradway posted to Facebook:

To borrow some words from a friend, doctored up by me: Southborough we are in this together, we are so in this together.

You can sign up for a safe photo outdoor photo session. (The session will be about 5 minutes.) Bradway will keep her distance (by at least 10 feet), while capturing you/your household during this unique time in our history.

In exchange, she’ll accept a donation. The money she collects will be given to Southborough Youth & Family Services and the Southborough Food Pantry.

She’s already been holding sessions and has a Facebook page set up to schedule more. Sessions are only about 5 minutes long. She stresses, that this isn’t intended to be a formal:

This is not a typical get-dressed-up-and-pose-for-the-photographer session. Want to stand outside in your pajamas and slippers? Sounds good to me. Kids in mismatched clothes but you’re thrilled they got dressed? Fantastic. Wearing your bike gear because you’re headed off to ride a trail in the nice weather? Love it! Be you.
