Pilgrims Hospice Sunflower Luncheon

I had the pleasure of photographing the Pilgims Hospice Sunflower Luncheon event at the Hotel MacDonald a few weeks ago.

If you don’t know about Pilgrims Hospice, go and check them out. They are an amazing organisation which provides services for people who are facing a terminal illness, and people who are facing grief. At the luncheon, a teacher from a local highschool talked about the amazing services that the Pilgrims Hospice provides to their students who are experiencing loss.

Pilgrims Hospice

This amazing organisation is doing a rather brilliant fundraiser right now.

Edmonton Poet and Author, Anna Sewell

You can find Anna’s work here: https://prairiepomes.com/

Anna has been a constant in Alberta Avenue for over 10 years – she was one of the first people I met when I moved there.

She is fascinating and engaging, throws a mean Robbie Burns party (and serves haggis!), loves the outdoors (we worked on the greening project at Norwood School together) and is a wonderful poet.

I love the light in this photo – Anna’s backyard.

With Anna being an artist, I knew we had to get in some art in the background. We are both in love with the panels at the Royal Alberta Museum by Ernistine Tahedl. When Anna showed up with a red dress, I knew we had to include them in her portraits.

Solar Eclipse Edmonton 2017

I still remember the solar eclipse when I was in grade 3. We had to stay inside so we didn’t all go blind. I am still mad about that.

But this time, I got to shoot the solar eclipse. It was only partial in Edmonton, but still! So excited!! (And I can get over being mad).

I got eclipse sunflair – how cool!!

And the sun coming and going.

Apparently you can fry your camera’s innards by shooting the sun – but these were shot between 1/3200 and 1/8000 of a second, and I did some test shots after – so hopefully its ok!! (I found that out after the fact).

Storm Chaser

This beautiful shelf cloud rolled in at the end of our family’s July birthday celebration last night. We were out in the country, but this was over Edmonton.

I could be a storm chaser – but I would totally die. I stood on top of a tractor to get this shot.

And just so you know, my dream job is to do an article for National Geographic.

Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Arts Award winner – Alice Major

Alice didn’t tell me why she needed photos right away, but after I completed the job, she told me she just received the Lieutenant Governor Alberta Arts Award.

You can check out the award here.

You can find out more about Alice at her website www.alicemajor.com

She is a lovely lady, who was the City of Edmonton’s first Poet Laureate and founded the Edmonton Poetry Festival. I did not know these things when I chose the location we would be using (I chose it based on the colours she likes).
