The Coronatography Project is my personal project and something that allows the families of this rare moment in history (COVID-19 Lockdown) to capture what is was like during the pandemic. Its meant to bring light and hope during such a dark time. This quarantine time capsule will become a part of history and will tell great stories in the future. When everything else is gone, photography is all we have left. I hope this project enlightens and bring smiles… we are in this together! #VegasStrong #familylove
Family #12 – The Zamora Family, who has their own hero, Daddy! Its hard having an front line essential worker as a parent but this family stays strong. Celebrating a birthday in quarantine is tough, but at least there is cake! Little man turned 5 during quarantine and his family helped him celebrate with lots of love!
Dad is a Corrections Officer with LVMPD and is considered to be an “Essential Worker.” His shifts remained the same with extra precautionary measures. He has had to wear a face mask and get his temperature checked daily. Mom is a stay-at-home mom of 4 with a small home business which her oldest daughter is apart of called Dipping Treats.
They miss hanging out with family & friends, going shopping & eating out. Dad, who is a Black Belt in Jiu Jitsu, misses teaching Jiu Jitsu.
When asked , “What is something that have you learned to appreciate?
Mom said, FREEDOM!!!
Her kids do not miss school at all. The kids are excited to not have to wake up early and physically go to school. They love doing Zoom meetings & homework in their pajamas, however, they miss seeing their friends & teachers. The youngest loves having his brother & sister home every day.
Mom couldn’t wait for school to officially be over. Mom said, “I don’t know how the teachers do it … much appreciation to them!” Teaching 25 plus children daily and not losing their minds is a miracle. Homeschooling was definitely a challenging to say the least. But they made it.
After the lock down is lifted, they’d love to visit their family in
Monterey Bay, California.
Thank you to the “Zamora” family for sharing your story!
