Through all this I’ve felt so helpless! As my many friends gear up every single day to battle the frontlines of this pandemic, I sit at home trying to find things to occupy my time. With no booked sessions Ive searched for ways to satisfy my need for being creative. I knew I needed to do something… something that lights my soul on fire. But what?
After weeks of not shooting I woke up on April 2nd 2020 and it HIT ME! My feelings of wanting to help and show appreciation combined with needing an artistic outlet made for the perfect recipe to start the The Frontline Hero Project.
Heroes don’t wear capes… they wear scrubs, uniforms, badges, tools on their belts, and yes even Costco name tags!
I am thankful for all of you out there risking everything. You all are true heroes and I appreciate you!
Thank you now… thank you forever. You guys make the difference!
The Mohatt Family
Nurse/ CHP Officer
Hi we are the Mohatt family. My husband Ryan is a CHP officer. He has been on the job for 8 years. He loves his job and our family is so proud of him for all of his service and dedication to our community. My name is Heather, I am part of the laboratory team at St. Mary’s hospital. I have always been excited to go to work and help people feel better. These days my excitement has turned to fear. I really understand what anxiety feels like along with panic attacks. Waking up in a full sweat at night thinking about going to work is real for me. Having to go into a room with an infected patient or bring their specimens to the lab is scary. My biggest fear is bringing home this terrible virus to my family especially my daughter Brooklynn that has severe asthma and an autoimmune disease. With both my husband and I still working with the community I know we are at a higher risk to bring something home to our family or ourselves if we don’t do our best to protect ourselves at work. It’s scary to think that if we were to get sick, who would be there to take care of our kids. We are very grateful to have essential jobs, but times are scary. We can’t believe that wearing masks are an everyday thing when just going to the grocery store. Our main goal in life right now is to protect our kids Brooklynn, Irelynn and Boston. I am so grateful for this photo shoot, you never know if it could be your last photo as a family. In the meantime we put our uniforms on and pray for our community and all of our co-workers that we come out on the other end alive and stronger than ever.
