Nellie Quail Photography and I recently finished our day of "Merry Minis" at McTavish Academy of Art to raise money for BC Children's Hospital. We laughed, we cried (with laughter) and had such an incredible day. My good friend (and part time Christmas elf!) Marilyn Hodgson was there to meet each family and share her Christmas cheer before we started each session. My other beautiful elf Emma brought her Christmas spirit - and an awesome Christmas sweater too.
The aroma of mulled hot apple cider was as irresistible as the Christmas cookies. We even had a cameo appearance of Holiday Howie - my sister's 10 week old Golden Retriever puppy.
A heart felt special thank you to all of our families that came and helped us raise more than $1000.00 for the kids at BC Children's Hospital.
I couldn't share all of the images but here are a few that are guaranteed to make you smile and fill your heart with Christmas spirit.
