I didn’t manage to get photos of all the photographers that volunteered for the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life in Edmonton, but here are a few of them! We are Team Clickin’ Cancer’s Butt 1/1ooth second at a time 🙂
Here’s the link to the rest of the story: http://christinehopaluk.wordpress.com/2009/05/27/a-picture-story-of-hope/
To my photographer team mates: if you would like to add your team Clickin’ Cancer’s Butt photos to this set, feel free to watermark them and send them to me and I’ll add them to this post. admin (at) christinehopaluk (dot) com
Our fearless leader dressed in her cape (she made capes for all of us!):
Her family even came out to show their support
Now that’s dedication, strapping not only a camera on, but also a baby 🙂
The day was beautiful. It was full of tears, laughter, and hugs; but most importantly there was this amazing presence of Unity and Hope.
Here is the day: a picture story of Hope.
The survivor balloon release…
I think a few of the balloons form the shape of a heart in the middle..can you see it? That’s for you Chris.
These fabulous girls were celebrating the bride’s stagette (she’s getting married next week-end!) by doing the Relay for Life. Fantastic!
These photos represent a whole lot of hard work and dedication. Mrs. X not only runs after two kids, but she also runs marathons. You inspire me girl! Thank you for the opportunity to capture your beauty.
In my previous post, I mentioned something about a certain Mom/neighbour that came to her son’s photo shoot wearing fuzzy pink PJ’s and bed hair. She has agreed (Sarah, you owe her a Bellini) to let me share this precious photo with you all….
This is EXACTLY why I love you girl….
We moved into our home in Leduc three years ago. It didn’t take me long to realize that I have the BEST neighbours ever. Hands down. They rock.
Meet Jordan. He’s my neighbour and he graduated this past week-end. Woop, Woop! Of the three years that I’ve lived across the street from him, it took me two years to see him in person…outside. Either I’m not outside that often, or he prefers his teenage basement cave. Either way, we have enjoyed getting to know him this year.
By the way, you may remember his parents who were the feature of a Trash the Dress shoot I did last year.
Anywhoooo, back to Jordan. His Mom asked me to take “A Photo or TWO”. Ummmmm, yah…never ask a photographer to take a couple of photos if you actually want a couple of photos. That’s not how I roll.
In the middle of our mini-session, Jordan’s phone rang and he said (and I quote):
“Can I call you back? I’m in the middle of a photo-shoot.” lol
This set of photos seems incomplete to me as I happened to get a shot of Jordan with his Mom. What makes this photo special is the fact she walked across the street to my little studio in her fuzzy flannel PJ’s and bed hair and posed for a photo with her son because she’s fun like that (that’s why I love her). Maybe if we razzz her a little, she’ll let me blog that one. If not, you’ll have to use your imagination 😉
Congrats Jordan! Here’s to more memories outside the walls of your teenage basement cave.
I know I’ve been talking about my website for months now…..
I’m happy to announce that my website has finally gone live!
Stop by for a visit!
Thanks for your patience and support 🙂
She’s going to graduate this week-end. I asked her Mom if it all goes by as fast as they say it does. She told me it really does. You blink your eye and they’ve gone and grown up. Mom is so proud of her beautiful grad and I could see it in her eyes as she watched me take pictures of her daughter.
Meet Paige’s escort Shaun. We didn’t know how to tie his tie. We actually had to call in reinforcements (Paige’s Dad) to come and tie it!
Congratulations! Have a wonderful time at Grad!
A couple of weeks ago, we got together for Part 1 so we could capture S.’s Henna Belly! Part 2 was shot this past week-end, featuring the whole family. It was Mother’s Day week-end and what a great way to celebrate it!
Meet Little J. She’s soon going to welcome a little brother or sister into her home.
They call her “Bean”.
She was explaining to me that her stuffie named Clive “Mooo’s”. It does not “Baaaa” like I wondered.
hmmmm…do you hear anything?
She is most anxiously waiting to give her new sibling this cute little monkey.
I can’t wait to find out if this is a girl or a boy. I’m thinking boy. Only a few more days until we find out!!!
This photo made me smile today while I was editing.
Meet Little A.
She enjoys “reading” her Elmo book (she makes her teacher/mommy very proud!)
And she’s really into these sticky little froggies that she enjoys throwing and sticking to the roof.
She talks a lot for a 2 year old…
but she does stop for little breaks…
Isn’t she a doll?
We ended our session with a little play outside with my daughter. She’s peaking through the playhouse door in this shot.
I’m so glad that I get to capture all these milestones in her life. Thank you for that Mom and Dad!
