If you follow me on Twitter or are a fan or personal friend on Facebook, you may already know that several weeks back I was contacted about doing some photography work for the Canadian Red Cross for their upcoming national campaign. And as expected, when presented with this opportunity I was insanely excited! I wouldn’t trade my work as a professional Family and Children’s Photographer for the world, but working in a commercial capacity (for businesses both large and small) is one of the very specific directions that I’ve always wanted to take with my business. (So hint, hint…if you are a business or a company in Ottawa, Ontario or surrounding area and are looking for professional quality images for your product or boutique-type business from a very enthusiastic professional photographer, I’d love to speak with you!)
The national campaign I was approached about was for Walmart Canada. My images are set to appear (or are currently appearing) in all Canadian Walmart stores on donation cards as well as any related signage. Its possible that the images may be used in future as well. In case you can’t tell, I’m beside myself with excitement over this. As if working with one of Canada’s most respected charities isn’t awesome enough, I also happen to be the proud Mama of one of the models used in the campaign! Recognize a certain little girl?!
As always, thank you to my wonderful friends, family, clients and fans for all of your business, encouragement and friendship. Not one single day goes by that I am not grateful for you, and for the opportunities photography has provided me with. Without each and every one of you I would not have the confidence to go forward with some of the amazing opportunities that I am presented with, and continue to be presented with. 2011 continues to be my most amazing year yet. Thank you.
