Melanie contacted me last year during my Kootenay Refugee Coalition fundraiser to photograph her family. I spent part of the morning with them, immediately enchanted by her and Anthony’s awesome daughter, Masi. Their little guy Guapo was also pretty great!
They played with Fisher Price records, tried on a few outfits, and listened to music–seemingly every day activities, but ones that will be warm memories and meaningful photographs as Masi grows.
Mel even surprised Masi with a rainbow unicorn toque, and Masi’s reaction as well her demeanour as she wore it, were priceless. She’s such a cool kid–gregarious and outright hilarious. It was an honour to capture this family being themselves.
