Children of the Okanagan Book Launch – Kelowna portrait photographer

By , On , In General

Well, the book launch was on Sunday and I think it turned out great. It was wonderful to see so many people there and to see all the kids again. It was a very exciting day for me and an emotional one too!

Seeing “Children of the Okanagan” complete means so much to me. It’s the final result of a year’s work and what a year it has been. I have met the most amazing families and the kids were a complete joy. I love photographing kids and this year I got to do it a lot.

Of course it feels good to raise over $20 000 for the KGH Foundation but this project has been more than I could have ever imagined. To meet and get to know so many people in the Okanagan is truly a gift. As most people know I am fairly new to this area so to be able to be connected to so many people is truly amazing. I remember worrying when I started this that no one would call – but you did – many of you did and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I am very proud of this book and hope it brings the families who were involved many years of joy and memories.

I want to thank everyone involved with the project including Sun FM, AM 1150, and the “Have a Heart Radiothon” for spreading the word.

I also want to thank everyone who was involved with making the party a success including my friends Karen, Greg, Nikki, Mat and my amazing husband Mike. The decor was donated by A Sweet Beginning, the cupcakes were provided by Sweet Art Cakes, all the AV equipment was provided by Rob at ReMix Show Ind, the fabulous face painting was done by Artivities With Funk, the great photos in this post were done by my friends Elisha and Chris from Abby Photography, and the beautiful venue was provided by the wonderful people at Summerhill Winery.

Also – thank you to all the families who came to celebrate with me and to all the families for supporting this project. I am forever grateful.
