My family is the most important thing to me. This group of sweet misfits are part of my nearest and dearest. Most of us live far apart from one another, but we manage to see each other twice a year. This year was a “Heaton” Christmas so many of them travelled down to Medicine Hat so that my parents could host and entertain this year during the holiday. My father spends a lot of his free time tracing back our family tree and is very involved with his hobby of Genealogy. He wanted nothing more than updated photos of everyone and perhaps even a photo of all of us together. Unfortunately with me photographing 20 plus people there is no way that I could get my kids and I ready for a photo at the same time, so I decided that I would shoot all of our families separately Then, using the same lighting, studio set and camera settings that I would make one very large streamlined photo of us all together. Then it would look like we were all there at the studio at the same time. So far it’s looking great. I photograph my family, my brother’s family and my mom and dad . Wish me luck. I am so happy that I was able to do this for my family that has been such a support to me and my littles.
