The story of how I ended up shooting a Toronto family photography session for the Tucker-Cordeiro family is a long one; but boy am I ever glad that I had a chance to work with them!
I love having giveaways and hosting contests; I think that giving back to the people who helped make you a success is important. In the hustle and bustle of the modern day world, we sometimes forget to take time to say thank you – I do my best to not only take that time but offer a little something special every now and then to my friends and fans.
So how did I meet the Tucker-Cordeiro’s? After announcing a winner for our ‘Just Because’ photography giveaway. the original winner never contacted me to claim their prize! I drew a second name, contacted that person and set a date for the session. When the week of the session rolled around they too, cancelled. I understand – life can get busy – but I never thought anyone would give up the opportunity to have their memories captured on film! So, back to the drawing board…. I was bound and determined to find someone to photograph. I went back to the original entrants of the contest and drew a third name: Ashley Cordeiro! Tah-dah! Within 2 days I had the Tucker-Cordeiro family infront of my camera at the Kleinburg railway station for a Toronto family photography session.
(By a huge coincidence, Chad – Ashley’s partner – was part Stephanie & Jason’s wedding party. I shot Stephanie and Jason’s Mississauga City Hall wedding last summer. Small world, no?)
