      Shannon Breen - My Husband Tyler & I are coming up to our 5 year Wedding Anniversary on April 23, 2015. We live a super busy life with our 3 beautiful children (Declan 3yrs, Kian 2yrs, and Ellie almost 11 months old). It would be so amazing and special to be able to celebrate our Anniversary & our Daughter’s 1st Birthday (April 20th), by having you capture & document our crazy little family!ReplyCancel

      Erin Daly - I have loved your photos forever! Since your blog all about Miss Lila! I love your style, all of the goodies that you love for kiddos and every.single.picture you take! Your blog is so fun to read and I get such creative and fun ideas to try. My little guy loves the books from your book club and I love ordering the unique items you blog about. Not only would we LOVE to have your photos in our home forever but my daughter is turning the big 1 in July and my little guy will be 3 1/2. Special photos and these moments with the kids would be cherished for a lifetime. Love the new website! Thank you!!ReplyCancel

      Kate Thiel - I would love to win a session to capture my little family and the growth and progress we’ve made. When I got married 6 years ago, I thought for sure by now I would have four little ones to chase after. I never expected to get sick on honeymoon, or to only have one child (that I am beyond grateful for!) As I battle this illness,I would like to capture what Lyme has NOT taken from us:our love for each other. Thank you for this opportunity!ReplyCancel

Fingers and toes crossed big time on this one!!ReplyCancel

    Karly - I’m hoping this is the right place to put my blog comment for your question – “tell me something special about your family that you would like documented?”

    We just had our first child on Valentine’s Day! Her name is Lila (I fell in love with the name after reading your blog on pinksugarland and even asked you for advice on instagram on how to convince my husband to like the name – luckily I was persistent and he grew to like it!) The only reason I am awake at this hour and checking out your new website is because I know she’ll be waking up right away to eat! I love your photography and would love a session with you to document this exciting time in our life with our new little family. Website looks great and can’t wait to see more!ReplyCancel

    Toni Edge - I was raised by my Grandma. She now has dementia and I’m her primary care giver. While she isn’t so bad yet. I can see her slipping away more and more each day. As a photographer myself I realize I need to document this time more. It is just so hard to find time amongst all the daily necessities of life. I’d love to win a session.ReplyCancel

    pennie - Two. We have two kids and hubby has been to the “spa” if you know what I mean. I am loved by a boy and never knew I wanted a girl. HHaving 1 of each is quite amazing. I feel lucky and would love to document it for like ever.ReplyCancel

    Jenna Hobbs - I want my family documented at this time. The twins are still so small and Breastfeeding. My two year old who still has her baby curls and calls our goats dotes. My five year old who thinks her mom is a princess. Because I know that these things won’t last. Won’t be the same for long. And I want to remember. πŸ™‚ReplyCancel

    Erin - I love your work & have been following you as Pink Sugar – I’m excited to see this next chapter. Congrats!
    What I would love documented is me with my son. I’m a single mom, he’s my only baby & is my little miracle. I take pics of him all the time and capture as many moments as I can of him with friends & family. But there’s no one to capture him and I together and I have just a few iPhone selfies of us. He’s 2 months old today & I would love nothing more than to have this precious time documented πŸ™‚ReplyCancel

    Mallory - Andrea, congratulations! I’ve been a long follower of Lila Was Here then Pink Sugarland and how Hankiland. Can’t wait to see what is in store for your sweet family.

    My husband’s work has taken us to Germany for 3 years. With that comes many, many challenges and heartbreaks – being away from our families, me leaving my job, a pilot husband who’s schedule keeps him away from home more than we’d like – but as a family rule we like to focus on the positive. So instead of dwelling on the difficulties of living in a completely foreign culture, we revel in it. We travel as much as we possibly can, and love every minute of it (which, with a 2 year old and pregnant mama in tow, isn’t always as easy as it seems). We enjoy experiencing the world and different cultures together, exposing our son to the world, and becoming true citizens of the world. I would love to capture this time in our lives – the chaotic traveling years. Who knows if we’ll always cast our net so wide when it comes to world travel, but right now, while it is so easy, we can. My son’s favorite place in the world is the Tour Eiffel. His favorite pretend games to play are riding in buses, metros, and street cars. He loves croissants in all shapes in sizes. And to me, the culture he is experiencing make everything else worth it.

    xx – much luck to you!ReplyCancel

    Stacy - Congratulations on the new everything! I just went through the very same thing with my business about a month ago! I really wanted my work to just be me and not my funky business name :). Your work is beyond inspiring to me on so many levels and I admire you so much as an artist, a person and a mommy. I have two littles of my own and always want our family pictures to capture the insane love parents have for their babies. There is nothing like it in the world. It’s not even something you can put into words. But you can definitely put it into pictures <3. We live down in the states – but my hubs has always wanted to take a family vacation to Canada so this would be the perfect excuse. Fingers crossed!ReplyCancel

    Stacy - My family has been experiencing growing pains for a little while now. I have two girls, one who is a preteen, and the other who is growing up but is the baby of the family. Lately it seems like all we do is argue and fight. The girls struggle to get along and it’s frustrating to be together sometimes. I would love a family session that showcases what it’s like when things are good. When the love shines through. I know a photo session is probably the worst idea to conjure up feelings of love and happiness. I know the stress involved, but that’s why you’re the best person for the job!! Just an hour or so to hang out. No pressure. No perfect wardrobe. Just us enjoying each other’s company.ReplyCancel

    Melissa Thiessen - I absolutely love your work and have been following you for years now. I’m not sure there is anything special in particular I want you to capture except just our normal everyday life because I think that in itself is pretty special. I have two small boys, 4 and 1.5 and I so desperately don’t want to forget them at
    This age and our life (although it feels at times hectic!) I would love for YOU to capture that:) love the new look!!! CongratsReplyCancel

    Alison R - My mom has just been handed down some horrible cancer news and I’d love to document our family along with her, while she still feels good, and looks the way she would like to look. We usually have photographs of joyful events, and while this is a bit different, these precious memories are so important to have. I think you captured the phrasing best – I want to be able to capture our love.ReplyCancel

    I would love a family session b/c our family is complete, and I want to try and mark each year or season with who my girls are at that moment as they grow up. My husband and I too, b/c we are still growing and learning as they do!ReplyCancel

    kate - Andrea, I don’t remember how it is that I stumbled onto your instagram page but I’m so glad I did. When my husband and I got married we wanted to have children right away. I soon found out that because of my medical conditions, that may not be so easy and we ended up having to go through a fertility clinic. This September marks our fifth wedding anniversary and we are half way there to our second “surprise” baby. Andrea, I’ve admired your photography for so long and it would be my absolute dream come true to have you capture our little family.ReplyCancel

    Kayla Dahl - Andrea!

    A very hanki launch indeed, so beautiful and perfectly captures you. Something I would adore to have captured is the birthday of my grandpa, m’s papa, he is turning 95 this summer. Not your average grandpa either, name a topic and you have a debate on your hands. This man is very special to us and images of his joy as well as people who have been lucky enough to say they love and know him coming to celebrate a life. So happy for you!! It turned out incredible, just like your work! Congrats!!!!ReplyCancel

    Laura holm - What a wonderful question to ask. My first response is why not? We are a not so normal, slightly crazy, always cookie, family who usually has some new adventure in the wings. However we are rarely all in one picture besides the odd selfie. Our life will be having a few special first s coming up as my youngest will be turning 1 on the best day of April fools. It would be a privilege and honour to have you capture such a wonderful first or capture one of our crazy adventures.ReplyCancel

    Jen Martin - Congrats Andrea! My hubby and I have three kids…and they are growing so fast!!! We find ourselves wanting to pause time lately because we are at such a fun stage in their lives..aged 9, 6, and 4 there is never a dull moment…it would be so awesome to pause time through a photo, capturing the unique personalities of each child and the laughter we so often hear in our house….and to be able to look back at this this any time we want would be a true blessing. I’m sure most families feel the same :-)) Good luck to all! xoxoReplyCancel

    Christy Ford - Hi Andrea! Congratulations on your rebranding. I love the feel of the new site! I’ve been yearning to have a family session done by you ever since I saw the photos you took of my brother, his wife, and their four ninja boys at Hastings Lake. You are a true artist (in case you didn’t already know.) We have three beautiful children that basically live outside. I take approximately 5000 pictures of them daily. Every day is a new adventure, and we can’t wait to have you capture some moments for us!ReplyCancel

    Wendi Cowne - Special thing about my family that I would like documented….

    The little touches that we give each other throughout the day to show our affection.
    As I walk past my husband while he’s reading in his chair, I run my fingers through his hair.
    As my husband leaves for work, he picks up our giant 8-year-old for a huge hug and her hands instinctively make their way to his ear lobes. This earlobe thing is something that she’s done since she was tiny. She does it to me, too.
    I watch her sleep sometimes, as most mothers do.
    We have dance parties in our living room after a particularly successful dinner. While I’m preparing dinner, my husband sits at the bar and chats with me, whilst refilling my wine glass as needed.
    We hold hands often and my closed fist fits inside of his giant hands entirely.

    I honestly would just love a documentation of a day in the life of my little family, so that I might remember when I’m old, those little touches, the earlobe rubs, the dancing, and everything in between.ReplyCancel

At the risk of sounding creepy, I’m constantly looking forward to seeing new posts on your Instagram feed every day! Lol! I specifically adore the way you capture families and children. Your love and passion for kids and your ability to bring out there best is so apparent in all of your photos! I recently had a beautiful baby girl named Ellie. Gosh, she’s cute πŸ˜‰ My little family of 3 would be so honoured to be photographed by you if we were to win! And I promise Ellie would bring all kinds of warm baby fuzzies your way throughout the shoot!!! Nothing like the absolute best photographing the most important people in my world!ReplyCancel

    Lindsay Ross - First off, congrats on your new photo journey! The site/blog look fantastic (no surprise there) I look forward to continuing to be inspired by your incredible view on the world.
    It gives me goosebumps to even think of how I would feel if I won a photo session with you….I came across your beautiful work back when I was pregnant with our son Connor 6 years ago. You and I were in an online forum together while we waited to become Mamas for the very first time. 3 years after Connor was born, we discovered that he had a large brain tumour and needed immediate surgery to remove the tumour. I was pregnant with our daughter and it was such a scary and uncertain time for us as a family. Our sweet boy taught us what bravery and strength look like as he kicked his tumour’s butt…never complaining once! We are now a family of 5 as we welcomed our third and final member of the family 1 year ago. I would love nothing more than to capture our complete family and celebrate love and health.ReplyCancel

We’re totally excited for this new adventure – and a teensy bit nervous about how big brother will adjust. And we’d love to have you capture some of our first year together as a family of 4!ReplyCancel

    jen - Just my little people being themselves. Your images tell a story and put things on pause,and create something beautiful that i can show them when they are older. And i definitely would love a few more paused moments while they are still little and wide eyed and amazed by everything.ReplyCancel

  • March 16, 2015 - 2:50 pm

    Amanda - I’d love to capture the way my boys interact. The way the baby tracks his big brother’s every move. How they make each other smile. The way they “share”. How they cheer each other up. They share at least one moment every day that makes my mommy heart burst.

    Love this new venture! It’s been a wonderful journey for you and your family and it’s been a joy to watch πŸ™‚ This new site is beautiful and the words you use in your details descriptions nails exactly why I love your photography. Those little moments you think to capture … many of my favorites are of those moments. A little hand holding his mom’s arm, the look on a new dad’s face as he watches his wife hold their babe, the candid shots of the bridal party … You are magic with a camera friend, your photos always get me feeling feelings, in the best way. xoReplyCancel

    Paulina Jomha - I’ve been following you since Lila was here and have enjoyed watching you document your own family and it’s growth throughout the years. Your family, as a result, seems adventurous, loving, fun and happy. I wish to have a family session that can capture our essence aswell. We have 2 girls and I have never once been able to get a photo of them smiling, laughing or even posing at the same time. It’d be a dream come true to have frame worthy photos!ReplyCancel

    Morgan - First, can I just say how much I absolutely adore your new space? It’s so very you, and of course, amazingly beautiful with all the photos you have put your heart and soul into. I’ve followed your work since the very beginning and I have always been inspired by your passion and your eye for capturing beauty, especially the everyday moments….and that is what I would love to have for our family. I have loved every stage with my kids, but I feel like we are at the most fun ages right now. With Hunter about to start kindergarten in September, I feel like we are on the cusp of a big change, and I would love to have this innocent little 5 year old and my wild and carefree 2 year old to stand still in time, at least in some photos. Also, it would be pretty amazing to meet you (finally!) and chat books for a little while πŸ™‚ xoxoReplyCancel

  • March 16, 2015 - 3:27 pm

    Amber Bourret - The new look is fantastic!! I’ve followed you for a ridiculously long time, since before I started my journey as a photographer. Your a huge source of inspiration to me, and your work is one of the main reasons I love lifestyle photography.

    I’d love to have our family captured as our third and last baby is growing far too quickly and will be a year old in August. Since I’m always the one behind the camera, of love to be actually be IN some of our pictures!ReplyCancel

    Jill Andrews-Dudas - As a stay-at-home mom, on the surface, most days look the same. We dress, eat, have a few little adventures, sleep, repeat. But when you step back and really look at each passing day, nothing is ever the same. Every morning my children wake up a little taller, a little wiser, their little faces more mature than the day before. They ask harder questions and their relationships with the word and those around them are more complex. This season of life is glorious and magical and a little sad. As much as I look forward to the amazing beings they are growing into, letting go a little each day is hard. We would love for you to capture us, just as we are today.ReplyCancel

    Shara Cochrane - Andrea!! I am LOVING the new rebrand. Well done lady.
    Good for you for coming out of your comfort zone and doing the extraordinary. But this doesn’t surprise me. Everything you do is extraordinary. EVERYTHING. I have loved following along with all you do, Lila Was Here, Pinksugarland, Instagram and now Hankiland. I can’t wait to see all the new goodness that is going to come out of it. You are beyond an inspiration.

    That is quite the question, what isn’t special about my little family. My husband. He for sure is special. He is handsome and hilarious. He really is the perfect man to spend a life with. Our little family will be expanding this October, and I would love to have some new family photos.

    Congratulations again Andrea. I can’t to follow your new adventures. xoReplyCancel

    Stephanie Ryan - First I just want to tell you how amazing your photography is and it inspires me every time I look at it. Second, to answer your question for the entry (I hope I did this right), I would love for you to document our family because 4 years ago I lost my son Liam. It has changed the way my little family lives our everyday. We are a passionate bunch that live everyday to the fullest and try to just love each other the best we can so that we can make everyday count. I love that your photographs capture the special bond and love between families, and I would love that for our family. Nothing beats the emotions and memories captures in pictures as beautiful as yours. πŸ™‚ReplyCancel

    Kristy-Anne - The moments that I find special and would love documented by you, are the in-between moments. The glances, the true friendship we share, the movement. Not the “perfect” moments. But the true moments that make each family special. I would also dream of someone being able to capture the love I feel in my heart in a photo, especially the way my kids look at me, the way they currently think I am the best human on earth. I want that that captured… before it’s no more πŸ™‚ReplyCancel

    Melanie A - Love the new look, Andrea! I would love to enter the contest for a photo session with you. My life has turned out totally different than I ever originally planned. I lost my mom to cancer when I was 19. For years afterwards, I felt lost and changed… altered forever. I never knew if I’d ever feel whole again. I finished college and graduate school after changing my major a few times. I followed my passion and started a part-time photography biz. Finally, after thinking I may never get the chance at a family of my own: I married a few months before turning 35, had my first son a few weeks before turning 37, and had my second son weeks before turning 40. Life turned out completely different than I ever expected, but for the first time in over 20 years I feel whole again. I would love for you to capture this crazy and unexpected life that is mine. They say when you have boys, as a mama it is like you are a rock star in your own home. I would love for you to capture this special time in our lives (my boys are almost 4 and 1 now) and the connection we share at this crazy, exhausting(!), fun, wouldn’t-change-it-for-the-world moment in our lives. Best of luck on your new brand!ReplyCancel

I know for sure that we love doing things as a family unit (mom dad and 2 toddler boys). I would absolutely love to do a photo session of the four of us playing on the beach at Lake Summerside because that’s something we do most summer days, and it would be great to have the kids look back on a few photos that brings up memories for them.

    Angie - I have loved for years your work, I was hooked fully when you had your blog “Lila was here”. I don’t think I’ve seen anybody who can document a family for all that they are, in that moment of time, as you do. I would be so thrilled if my family was one that had that privalege.

    Catherine Caughron-Furlin - First of all, thank you for this opportunity! Having my family photographed by you is on my bucket list! As a Mom & as a photographer, I hugely admire what you do and love following your business and personal blog! Our family just grew by our new little son on February 2nd, and we named him Cole. πŸ™‚ As a photographer, I’m always behind the camera. I want to capture how my new little baby snuggles into my chest while my one year old son Blake comes over and says “Mommy hold you?” and my 9 year old daughter tells me about her day. I guess I just want to capture my husband and I as parents to 3. It almost doesn’t seem real! I want to see us interacting in a photograph because it feels so fleeting being in the moment. πŸ™‚ReplyCancel

    Jessica St. Cyr - I love your rebranding! Everything is so beautiful! Congrats!!
    So, something special that I would like documented of my family is togetherness! I capture lots of photographs of us individually, but don’t have that many family photos! Time goes by so quick so I would really love having out family documented and just being able to freeze time for a moment. Thanks πŸ™‚ReplyCancel

I would be unbelievably grateful (read: ecstatic, lucky, overjoyed, etc!) if you could officially document our family becoming a family of four! You captured us as we were on the verge of becoming a family if three when I was pregnant with my son… Fast forward three+ years and we now have a daughter (15 months already!) and we would cherish a photo-story by the most talented/coveted photographer we adore!!

It would be incredible to have you capture this time of our lives. xoReplyCancel

We only know how to be ourselves. And now we need more documentation of our family dynamics with lil Miguel in the picture. πŸ™‚ReplyCancel

    Leslie - Our family has been on a roller coaster ride – one that began over 3 years ago. We moved as a family of 4, settled in to our new house, in a new state, to be surprised with a new baby… that turned into 2 babies… that turned into identical babies… that turned into our 3rd and 4th sons. So here we are a lively, loud, active family of 6, including 4 boys. πŸ™‚ I took time off from working so I could document my family more instead of photographing others and then realized that I am never, ever in the images. I would love to be IN the images. I would love a session with you! Fingers crossed…ReplyCancel

    Melanie Pastuck - My family has gone through some restructuring over the past 4 years. It hasn’t been an easy road for my 3 kids and me – we have lots of tricky days but there are moments that I wish that instead of being the photographer, I was being photographed. With them. Our cuddles. Our laughs. Our moments. I just want some really happy and lovely moments for them to look back on when they are older. Moments that remind them that they (we) survived and thrived.
    Your new look is amazing – congratulations!ReplyCancel

    leslie - well you know I love ya – I cannot wait to have you document us again – in a place that runs deep in both our histories. What you’ve done for us alreay touched so many family members and the best is yet to come πŸ™‚ReplyCancel

  • March 17, 2015 - 1:43 am

    Michelle - The baby has bright warm soulful eyes and is always ready with a smile. His thighs have rolls you want to smear with butter (figuratively!!) and he has a pouty bottom lip that melts your heart. He’s a little stuck on Mama and that’s perfectly fine with her.
    The toddler charms and entertains just about every one she meets. Outgoing, engaging, talkative and *expressive*, she makes most people laugh with her big personality. She’s also comfortable and pretty cooperative in front of the camera, and for a brief time as an infant probably thought that little black box with the circular nose was indeed her mother’s face.
    Mama is the documentarian. She photographs her little family almost daily while trying to desperately find the balance between living in the moment and recording it for posterity because those moments that make you catch your breath a little bit are so fleeting. She also has the title of Head Goofball and often enlists her loved ones (sometimes with bribery) in silly ventures because she holds firm to the belief that if we can laugh just a little bit every day, then everything will be just fine.
    Papa. He’s the quiet one but no less a clown. He’s the backbone to this family and keeps us grounded, safe and loved beyond measure. He is Mama’s biggest cheerleader, the toddler’s hero, and the baby’s wingman. We adore him.
    I would for you to capture those tiny sparks that flicker among us. The love, the knowing glances, the understanding, the chemistry — that “thing” that makes us who we are.

    Congratulations on this new venture, Andrea. You are an inspiration and an absolute delight to follow. Thank you for sprinkling Hanki confetti and sharing your magic with us.ReplyCancel

We missed the chance with our last pup and I’ve since regretted not taking family photos with him.ReplyCancel

    Carly Lefebvre - I would love for you to capture us as a family on an adventure – we obviously can’t take you to Mexico but every day is new and fresh for lennon and to get a different perspective from such a talented eye would just be fantastic. Lennon has experienced so much and pictures of 3 (other than selfies) are few and far between. πŸ™‚ReplyCancel

    Heather Muse - Hey Andrea! Love the new site and brand! So lovely! I would love to have you photograph my family because you have such talent for showing how families really are, how it is today, and how relationships really are. And I want to hold on to that. My oldest is 10 (!) and I know that we are probably halfway to the point where she will want to leave our little family and start out on her own! It feels like yesterday she was born…ReplyCancel

My sister and I were fortunate to grow up spending our weekends and summers at the cottage with our cousins, aunts and uncles, parents and grandparents. Now that we are grown, my sister and I take our own families to the lake and continue to share special moments and watch our children bond with their grandparents and great grandparents in the simplicity of lake life. This place holds a special place in my heart and I would be most thankful to have the love of our family, and all of its generations, captured at the lake by your lens.ReplyCancel

    Nicole - I have been wanting you to photograph our family since we grew from a family of three to a family of four! I need you to capture the cute moments between my kids…the way my son looks at his big sister when she is within sight, the way he toddles around now that he’s learned to walk, the way my daughter buries herself in her books, capturing her creative side when she’s painting or colouring…and the way they wrap their little arms around mommy and daddy and give us the biggest hugs they can possibly give! I don’t know anyone else who has the ability to photograph the moments that you do, and I would love to have these small moments frozen in time πŸ™‚

    I am obsessed with documenting my family. I wish for my kids to look back on it and have these documents as a testament to good life. As an immigrant to the States and knowing about the loss on family members I treasure this even more. Our home has pictures on the walls, on the fridge, I print photo books. It would be extra special to see my family through your eyes and have pictures hanging in the house.ReplyCancel

    Melissa - I would be absolutely over the moon excited to win a session with you. Your work is amazing and I love your style. My husband and I would love for you to come to our home in Revelstoke and photograph our little family. We have a three year old son and a five month old girl. Fingers and toes crossed big time on this one!!ReplyCancel

    Stephanie - There was a long time in my life where I thought I’d never get married and never have a family of my own… but now I’ve been married for a year and a half and have the squishiest little six month old boy and I just feel like my heart is bursting. I’d love, love, LOVE for you to photograph this unexpected and much cherished family of mine.ReplyCancel

    Cathy Empey - Congratulations on your beautiful new site! I have always admired your work! I am a wife (almost 17 years) mom of six, and was shooting boudoir for almost six years. During those years, I focussed too much on photographing others, and neglected to capture beautiful memories and moments of my own family! We have one boy, and five girls (all who are growing up so quickly!! 15 (almost 16, my son with pink hair and he is now taller than me! My five girls – 14, 12, 10, 8 & 7!) NOW is the perfect time to capture our family!! I would love to be in FRONT of the camera with my wonderful family. We are loud, we are crazy and we love each other so very much!! I love our family <3ReplyCancel

    Tina - My husband and I have been married for almost 9 years, and we have enjoyed watching our children grow. In what seems like the blink of an eye, our eldest, Josephine, is 7, and our youngest, Theodore, is 5 – where did the time go? We spend much of our summers camping at our local lake, and I would love to have you capture some of those precious moments we share together…hiking, swimming, playing, hanging out around the fire.ReplyCancel

    Lisa - I have been so fortunate to have you capture the special moments of our family throughout the last 6 years. I adore all the pictures that you have taken of us as our family has grown and I know they will be our special treasures throughout our lifetime.

    Something special that I would love to see you capture (again) is the beautiful, growing, ever-shifting relationships between my children. I love how they love each other. πŸ™‚ReplyCancel

    Melanie Markiwsky - Every moment with family is special. Each moment we’re together, loving, learning, and growing together. To be able to document any particular moment of that, is special πŸ™‚ReplyCancel

    Lucy - Hi Andrea! I’ve been following your professional and personal blogs since “Lila was here’ and I’ve always been so inspired by your style and creativity. I wasn’t sure if this competition was open to those in places as far-flung as Tasmania (Australia) but thought I’d throw my hat into the ring, as coming to Canada and being photographed by you is right there on my ‘One Day..’ list! So, something special about our family that we would like documented… We are a family of five, (our three munchkins are 12, 10 and 7) and while I take lots of photos of them, my husband and I are never in the picture – I’m always the one behind the camera and he is the camera-shy one. This wasn’t always the case, but after my husband was critically injured and badly burned in a car accident almost four years ago, his injuries left him unable to operate or even hold a camera and with no inclination to be in a photograph anymore, even with his children. I would love to have even just one photo of our ‘party of five’ captured by you, to celebrate that we are 5, because things could have turned out very differently.ReplyCancel
