A couple weeks ago, we received a call from our friend Tina at the Hammond Bay Trading Post. One of her neighbors was about to begin treatment for a serious illness and wanted to have some family pictures taken before he begins.

We were glad to help.

What could be better than a beautiful Sunday afternoon taking photos of a lovely family in an Eden-like setting up north? Sid and Jill Merchant made a beautiful couple and photographing them with their loved ones was quite a treat.


Since Katherine was spending the weekend relaxing with friends Jo and Dawn, she took them along as assistants. They made the baby laugh, added to the comradery and — if they want a permanent job — they’re hired!

Take a look at a few of the best shots.
