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!

The Parker family were the lucky winners of a package that we donated to Fashion With Compassion last year. Along with a portrait session and print from us, they also received dinner and drinks at Zaika Bistro, a style session with L2 Style, and hair and makeup by Sunita Sumaru. This was such a fun session, and everyone looked fabulous. Like us, they operate a family business and that keeps them very busy, so capturing memories of their kids is really important to them.
I hadn’t met Talina & Brad prior to their engagement session – they booked me from Fort McMurray for their Canmore wedding next summer. They had a great reference for our photography – Talina’s sister is Edmonton’s own Ashley Domingues, wedding planner of Simply Unique Weddings!
Talina & Brad are incredibly sweet, and I really enjoyed spending an afternoon with them. And…it doesn’t hurt that they’re both totally gorgeous. I can’t wait for their mountain wedding!
