On Thanksgiving, I got to see Kim and the family for some fall family photos. And there was so much to be thankful for – the beautiful weather, the forest bathed in morning light, and all the crisp, colourful leaves. This amazing family and their new puppy Teddy. More importantly, thankful for Kim – truly an amazing person and a great friend. Also someone who fought and kicked cancer’s butt last year. I was in awe of her strength and perserverance throughout her battle and to this day, she is a true inspiration to me and so many others. This session would be their first since cancer entered their lives and it felt like a new start with the return of Kim’s blonde curls and new family member Teddy the golden doodle. It was clear to see that Teddy has brought much joy to the family, especially Maddy, Grace and Julia. And there was no doubt that Teddy especially loved his mama Kim and the feeling was mutual. It was so great to see everyone smiling, laughing, enjoying life. Thank you for letting me capture these images.
