Hello to everyone!
I am on a small mission this week to get somewhat caught up on my fall sessions. I have less than two weeks left of my winter break and then look out. It will be full on craziness until December! And with weather we are having – I feel no guilt sitting in my office all day.

I am really looking forward to sharing the story behind this family. First, let me tell you that this family is just awesome. Completely fun and easy going! Their girls are adorable and gave us so many laughs during our shoot. Here is a little story about Mom.

Krestena and I met through facebook. A friend had posted a link to her small business and I clicked on the link. I contacted her immediately to see if we could combine our entrepenurial spirit. Between a part time teaching job and an active lifestyle with two young girls Krestena owns and operates an on line childrens’ clothing store called Leapfrog Creations. What is unique about her clothes and accessories is that they are made from post-consumer materials and recycled clothing. And it is all made by Krestena. You can even bring your own clothes to her! A favourite maternity top….grandpa’s shirt!

From that call we spent the next few months trading off clothes and pictures in preparation for her website launch. We capped the summer off with this family shoot. I look forward to seeing her business grow and to working together again this year. Congratulations Krestena! I am so happy our paths crossed in life.

In celebration of Krestena’s success we are giving away a $75 gift certificate to Leapfrog Creations!

Here is how you enter.
The contest is now open and it will run until Monday April 25th at 10 pm. The winner will be announced on Tuesday morning.
