Realtor® Pat Wall gifted her clients socially-distant family porch-portrait sessions to capture a nostalgic moment in history for Denver-area families
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the dynamic of every home and every family across the world, and behind every front door is the story of how individuals are facing the challenges of today. So, Denver-area Realtor® Pat Wall of Kentwood Cherry Creek, a real estate agent with over 40 years in the profession, captured this moment in history for clients with whom she has built relationships with over the decades.
Pat Wall hosted complimentary family porch-portrait sessions, hiring Denver photographer Emily Spetosky. The stories behind these ‘Porch Photos’ captured include:
- Photo of parents and their young children having a fun time bouncing on a trampoline with rolls of toilet paper in the air. Wall represented this family in the purchase of their home.
- Photo of twins that just graduated high school, but couldn’t have a formal ceremony. Wall has known the twins since they were 18 months old, having helped the family find homes in different stages of their lives.
- Photo of three grown children staying at their parent’s home together for the first time in years, one of whom usually lives in Europe. You can see them sitting, laughing and bonding together. Wall has known the family since they moved to Denver in 1990, having helped them to buy their first home in the Denver area.
- Photo of parents with a one-year-old baby that said this is the first time in months they got to get dressed up. Wall sold them a home that backs up to a park and lake which is perfect for a child during this time when social distance calls for families to stay home.
These stories represent an important period in history. The nostalgia that Pat Wall is gifting to these families goes beyond a Realtor-client relationship – it’s the embodiment of ‘we are in this together.’
“Seeing these precious photos reminds me of all of the times we have spent together,” said Pat Wall. “I have known them as teenagers and now they have teenagers! I have seen all of their life events – births, deaths, weddings, graduations and all of their homes. These homes are central to their lives and so it was fitting that they be photographed in them while quarantining. The families enjoyed the experience.”
