Family Pictures

We are honestly so blessed to have such an awesomely talented photographer as a friend. Annya has taken so many amazing pictures of Gavin and just been so generous and supportive to our family. It means a lot to us.

Well she recently announced that she is participating in the International Charity Model Search to select North America's "Cutest Family." The grand prize is a new car so that seemed like a pretty good incentive for John & I to finally get in front of the camera as well! We were long overdue for family photos anyway.

This photo shoot was a bit of a challenge because Gavin wasn't in the mood to sit and pose for the camera (Really?? A restless toddler who doesn't want to sit still? Ha!). We had to get a bit creative with him but Annya worked her magic and we ended up with some beautiful shots to choose from!

We had a really hard time deciding but we ended up submitting this photo. I just love how natural it is and it makes me smile because every time I see it I can just hear the sound of his silly little laugh!

To vote for us you can go HERE and select Toronto as the tour city. It is $1/vote and all proceeds benefit the Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation. Click on the link for more info about this wonderfully unique cause. It is very bittersweet but I do think it is a really important step in helping a family to heal after the loss of a child.

To see more of Annya's work or get in contact with her you can check out her beautiful website at It is worth it just to see all the adorable babies! :)
