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 #16 – The Skistimas Family, the one where the princess was boss!!!
Dad is a banquet manager at the Wynn Hotel. All events were cancelled. He was working from home doing virtual meetings everyday to create and implement new procedures for when they reopen. Mom is a realtor and has been working from home during the quarantine and taking care of their daughter since she was not going to school. Both of their jobs took a big hit Doing a home school schedule was a challenge at first but we have gotten the hang of things.
They miss their normal routine and they miss their friends. They’re very social people and isolation has been hard. However, they have learned to appreciate their daughter’s teachers!! Mom said, “They are saints!! They deserve a raise!” Their daughter misses school very much. Homeschooling hasn’t come naturally for Mom, so she can’t say it’s been enjoyable.
They’ve gone and explored more new areas and enjoyed some really cool hiking spots. They’ve rode their bikes considerably more. They have enjoyed more outdoor activities.
When this lock down is lifted, they plan to got to Chicago. Dad’s father passed on March 18 and they need to go have a service for him.
Thank you to the Skistimas Family for sharing your story!
