Miss A ~*Sunshine Foundation*~ ~*Windsor Photographer*~

A few weeks back I was contacted by a public relations assistant for The Sunshine Foundation to see if I was interested in being part of the organization.  At the time, I have to admit, I actually did not know what this foundation was, so I started asking around.   I have come to learn all the amazing and great things this foundation has done (For me, it seems the easiest way to describe it is similiar to the Make A Wish foundation)
They asked if I was willing to donate my time to photograph a little girl and her family who were chosen for a Sunshine Wish.
When I met Miss A and her family- it left absolutely no doubt in my mind that I had made the right decision to connect with this foundation.  To say this was an incredible family is such a vast understatement that I feel that I couldn’t put into words their true nature.

Miss A was vibrant and sweet, and by God, she has the most beautiful smile.  It’s truly infectious.  We had a lot in common, Miss A loved being artistic- which is clearly right up my alley!   And I can only hope that as my daughters get older, they continue to love each other as deeply as these two sisters do.

I had such a blast, even if we had to battle the troops of mosquitoes who were determined to interfere with our session.  (Hey, I only came home with 19 bites on my upper legs, as counted by my daughter).  Hopefully the family was luckier than I was in the mosquito battle.

I truly wish this family the best, and I hope to see Miss A and her family again.

And I count myself lucky to have accepted this request to work with the Sunshine Foundation of Canada- it so far, has lead me to meeting a wonderful family and I look forward to more!

Heartbreaker Challenge

As some of you may know, as a “day profession” I am a registered veterinary technician and work at South Windsor Animal Hospital (www.southwindsoranimalhospital.ca)   We are a close knit group of co-workers and thoroughly enjoy taking part in various charity & fundraising events.  This year, some of my co-workers decided to take on the task of running in the Heartbreaker Challenge at Malden Park.  This event was put on my Windsor Regional Hospital and raised money for the Cardiac Wellness Centre and Pulmonary Rehab Program.  If any of you are familiar with obstacle events such as Tough Mudder, this was formed to be similar.  Participants had 15 obstacles throughout the race to overcome.   From giant mud pits to crawl through, muddy water ditches to trudge through (some areas the water was waist high!), walls to climb, tires to carry and more.  While I did not actively participate in the event, I went to photograph my co-workers (including my boss) and show my support (although I did not realize I would walk the length of the park 4 times and be up and down hills while following them- boy was I sore the next day!!)
I hope you enjoy some of my favourites!

Way to go everyone who participated in this awesome event!!!
