fox family ¦ innisfail & area family & children's photographer

whew! past the crazy chaos of christmas...finally having a moment to breathe!! just before christmas i had the pleasure of photographing possibly one of the sweetest family's i have had the pleasure of photographing!! the fox family was easy going and super funny...they were easy to joke with and we had some great laughs!!! one of my favourite parts of the session was the fact that they were brave enough to take on alberta winter...and we did the session outdoors in the snow!! so without further adieu, i'd like to introduce you to the fox family...
 and i really wasn't kidding when i said they had a great sense of humor...
  photography tactic 101 to help the family forget the camera and loosen up...everyone look at each other and make a funny face!! which thanks to bret...had the family laughing and kari remarking..."now watch this be the only decent photo of us!!" and the funny this is, i LOVE this photo!!!




and then i was asked to do something special. kari brought her point and shoot camera and asked if i might be able to take a photo of the family wearing bandana's with her camera for her sister, a somewhat unusual request but she quickly explained why...

kari's sister was diagnosed in June 2011 with breast cancer, had surgery and is now doing chemo.  She is keeping a journal (her ABC Journal - Adventures in Breast Cancer).  She, of course, lost her hair and wears a bandana daily...so to show support, her family decided for their Christmas picture they would all put bandanas on for the picture and then challenge all family and friends and anyone who wanted to take a picture with their bandanas on, email it to her and she would add it to her journal.  It just adds a touch of fun to her fight!!

so here is the fox family showing support for kari's sister's fight...
and in showing support for such a cause...this photo and another one i gifted to this amazing family and i am offering to do complimentary photo's of anyone who would like to show support and add their photo to kari's sister's journal.

i hope everyone had a fabulous christmas!! help this family earn a complimentary 8x10 by leaving a comment on this post!! they only need 10 comments!!
