Children of the Okanagan 2011 – Kelowna Wedding and Portrait photography

By , On , In General

Well “Children of the Okanagan 2011” is well underway and it has had a great start. With amazing support from Astral Media as well as support from friends and past clients – spaces are filling quickly for this year’s book.

The idea behind the project it so photograph children on location throughout the Okanagan to be part of a beautiful coffee table book to help support our Kelowna General Hospital and it’s Children’s ward. I am waiving my portrait sitting fee of $200 for this project and instead asking parents to make a $100 donation for each child that they wish to have appear in the book. The book itself will be ready for early December and will sell for $139 each.

I will be photographing the children and their families on location throughout Kelowna, Lake Country, Penticton, Vernon and beyond if necessary. The idea is to capture this beautiful area as well as the adorable kids that live here.

This project was inspired by my amazing daughter who needed neo natal care when she was born. That experienced made me appreciate the care that our doctors and nurses give to our little ones and I am forever grateful. With this book I hope to surpass the amount raised in 2009 which was $21 000.00.

Please help by having your child take part or by telling your family, friends and co-workers all about it!
