We did the R family's portraits late last fall -- after an early snowstorm blew through. It was their first winter in Canada and they wanted photos to send to their family back in their home country.
This July 16, they will celebrate their first year in Canada. It is a big thing as they literally fled for their lives with only a few hours notice that they were leaving their country. Things have changed a lot for them, but mostly for the positive. They have the freedom to be who they are in this country. And they even have a sweet natured Golden Retriever named Joe. (He gets his own blog entry soon :o))! To celebrate their one year anniversary, they wanted pictures with the Canadian flag.
Thank you R family. It is always a pleasure to do your photos! We look forward to celebrating with you on the 16th!
Because we remember moments, not days...
