{Flia} …

Okay, it’s time for another giveaway …. but FIRST … I know Melina is dying to see some sneak peeks… 😉 So here it goes!

What an amazing family – I knew as soon as they drove up that they would be a fun family to work with!


As a mom, when I opened up this image, my heart melted … I love it … love, love, love …..







Absolutely ADORE seeing a married couple still madly in love …. You guys are so cute!



and hellloooo … gor.geous.




Their family is big into soccer … so why not a little family soccer game in the field?



You guys are amazing. I LOVED your session and it was amazing getting to know you four! 🙂 




Alright – it’s time for a GIVEAWAY!


This week involves FOOD. Oh yeah. My favorite kind. Food AND kids. 




Have you heard of Little Chefs? If not, you must check them out – basically, this is how it work. You book the party, they came to you, set up, clean up and provide a party for your kids, teaching them how to cook and create tasty treats and fabulous food!

Lori Tinella is the Head Cheese behind Little Chefs (okay, a little corny food humour there for you) – and has kindly offered up the following for this week’s giveaway:


* a $ 50.00 gift certificate towards a cooking party for 8 children making two yummy foods to eat!

BONUS: If you book your party by Oct. 17th (deposit is needed), you will also receive  some fun, cooking loot bags for the party guests (a value of $40)

All you have to do to enter this giveaway is leave a comment here on the blog!

I’ll draw the winning name early next week. 


So go on and leave a comment!!!

Sherri Smith Love the family smiles shot. You can see the love they have for each other. I don’t have kids, but know a few I could include in the Little Chefs give away if I win and would be useful for me to learn to cook something new for my hubby..
