Elmira Children's Photographer. Literacy for all

Each year I set aside several special events in order to give back to my community.  This year I offered my Christmas Card Special where all proceeds went to Kate's Kause and an Integration Action for Inclusion (IAI) workshop they were hosting.  The workshop was designed for parents, caregivers and teachers to support families with children with significant disabilities and specifically their literacy development.  In the fall Dr. Caroline Ramsey Musselwhite, CCC-SLP and Erin Sheldon, M.Ed. offered a workshop on Emergent Balanced Literacy and this week they offered part II.  I was fortunate enough to have some time to photograph these ladies in action during their instruction on using an ipad and other literacy tools to encourage, develop and explore writing and literacy for students with significant disabilities. 

Here are a few shots of these ladies in action.

Elmira Children's Photographer. South Park Woods Session

We met for this session in Elmira's South Park Woods.  It was a beautiful setting for this family and the light that day was amazing.  We had been holding out for the perfect day and the late October didn't provide many opportunities.  I've held off blogging this session since I knew some of the images were going to be framed in a beautiful recycled eco-frames I offer and given as Christmas gifts. They looked amazing when they arrived.  I had them wrapped and ready to give for my client!

Anyway, the session itself was a blast since these kids were little bundles of energy.  We ran, jumped, climbed trees and captured some amazing moments for this family.

Leigh and Grant, Thank you for giving me the opportunity to photograph your growing family.  And congrats on number 4 set to arrive later in 2014!

Elmira Children's Photographer

Today is my birthday.  My 33rd birthday to be exact.  Do I feel older?  Sort of.  Do I look older? If you look closely (and please don't).  Does it matter?  Not really. You see, my life is full of wonderful people that make it amazing in a way I can't really describe.  I love my job/business/career/whatever you want to call it.  And life is actually pretty sweet.

In honour of my 33rd, I will be gifting my basic package ($395 value)  to 3 very worthy families  So who will these people be?  That's up to you.  Send me the story of a family that needs a little lift, can't afford professional photos or who would love a family photograph hung on the wall.

Stories must be submitted by email to info@greenapplephotography.ca by Friday January 24th.  The winners will be chosen by my team at Green Apple Photography and announced on or before February 1st, 2014.  Feel free to contact me about what is included in the package.

You must include the family's name, location, their story and why a portrait session would make a difference to them.

Please also include your name and contact information.

Stories will only be published with the winning family's permission.

I hope to give some wonderful photographs to some amazing people this year!
