Emily’s Photo Session at Medalta Potteries, Medicine Hat

Posted on July 29, 2010

This was a very special family photo session for me, for so many reasons.  First of all, I had Miss Emily in my Junior Kindergarten class four years ago… which is also the beginning of my friendship with her mom Sheryl!  Emily has always been a sweetheart in my eyes, but you can definitely see her little personality coming out in these photos.  She is a rockstar, just like her Mom.  And even though Sheryl may not admit it… her daughter really is a miniature version of her!  haha! 

This is the second photo session that I have done for these girls… the first being two years ago at Echodale which featured a little Emily in denim overalls and pink converse sneakers!  Stinkin’ cute.  Each time we have done photos, it has been in trade for Sheryl’s awesome crafting skills.  Some of you may know that I’m a crafty girl myself at the best of times, but when serious need for intricate sculpting arises… she is the lady I call on everytime.  Honestly, she’s pretty amazing at what she does. 

For my daughter’s second birthday two years ago, we were having a “beach themed” party, complete with a sandcastle cake.  However, her one special request, was to have her best buddies “Toopy and Binoo” be on the cake as well.  Uh… yeah.  Soooo… enter Sheryl.  She not only whipped up the cutest pair of little cake toppers, but also made them “beachy” complete with sand pail, shovel and the tiniest sea shells ever!  Fabulous! 

So this year, my daughter really wanted a Robin Hood party, bows and arrows, hats with feathers, swords, treasure hunt… the whole works.  Let me just say that it is next to impossible to find Robin Hood ANYTHING these days, so we needed to be super creative.  Again… enter Sheryl.  She put together the most perfect little Robin and Maid Marion I could have ever asked for… sigh.  She even reassured me that I could make my own Sherwood Forest tree if the cake really needed it still… which of course I had to try ;) .Cake-ToppersThank you Sheryl, for all that you do!  Don’t worry, we have almost an entire year to plan out the 5th Birthday Party theme… I just know you’ll come up with something awesome no matter what she chooses!  ;)   We had fun hanging out with you two and getting some sweet photos. xo
