We didn’t last long without a furry family member. We adopted another Cocker Spaniel which we named Elliot. It’s been 20 years since we’ve had a puppy and we forgot how sharp their teeth were and how hard they bite! Good thing he’s adorable!!
My daughter is graduating from high school this year, sniff sniff. After my mother died I took possession of her prom dress that she wore in 1957. I thought it would be a fitting tribute and a lovely senior photo if I had my daughter model it. Our cocker Finnegan had to get in on the action too.
My favourite field to do family photos in Stittsville is now a construction zone. As we were downtown Ottawa one day a few months ago, I noticed how beautiful the stairs were on the East Block of the Parliament Buildings and that they would make a great backdrop for this year’s photos. We parked at the National Arts Centre and saw a cool new art installation “Cloud” where I had to take a picture of my daughter with it. The lighting was not great for a whole family photo with it though.
