This was our 7th photo shoot with Laura & Joe, we’ve grown to be friends with their family and we can’t wait to meet their new little baby in February! I love that in the first image you can see one of Ava’s previous photo shoots displayed in their home. Thank you to Laura for being so brave and coming outside into the freezing cold!
Just before we left for Hawaii we squeezed in a family portrait shoot with the Stead family! They wanted to have photos for their daughter’s first birthday. Their son was really interested in keeping his sister happy and was a great help during the session. This was a really fun session and we loved working with this family.
The studio is closed as we’re spending some much needed family time in Maui, but I brought a teensy bit of work with me (trust me, it took a lot of restraint not to bring our whole office with us!), so I’ll be blogging a couple of things while we’re gone. To all of you in Edmonton, try not to picture where I’m blogging this from, it’ll just make you depressed.
When things were a bit warmer in Edmonton, Michael went out with our good friends the Aromins to update their family photos – it’s crazy to see how much the kids are growing! Bennett was just a newborn at our wedding…it’s amazing how time flies.
Last weekend we were delighted to host the Shandro Photo Adoption Celelbration, with Edie of Adoption by Choice, and Stacey of JoyFoley Weddings. We had 17 families in our studio (some who had adopted children, and some who haven’t) and raised over $600 for Adoption By Choice! Stacey prepared a beautiful sweets table for the kids to enjoy, and the families got a chance to meet and mingle as well as having their photos taken.
We had such a great time, and want to thank everyone who came out! Here’s just a peek at a few of our families who participated, and the beautiful table that Stacey created.
The story behind these photos can be found here, needless to say it was an unexpected opportunity that I really enjoyed. I certainly had fun visiting with all of these ones (and their owners of course!) Thank you so much to everyone who came out for my accidental foray into dog photography.
We were also able to raise $100 for Pawsitive Match Rescue Foundation!
