July 4, 2018
Ashley and Drew have been working with us since they were engaged, and it has been a real, true honour to continue photographing them through their lives. When these two learned that they would be expecting a little babe in July of 2018, we were over the moon with them and thrilled to be capturing some maternity photos in their cozy Toronto condo.
Baby Lucille was born in July of 2018 and it is with great sadness we have say that she did not get to join us to play in this world for as long as we had hoped and dreamed. While Lucille’s life was short, we believe that her memory moved mountains. In her memory, Team I Love Lucy rallied to be one of the top 10 fundraisers for the Sick Kids “Get Loud” Campaign which helped be a massive part of raising $2.2 million for Sick Kids in 2018. Sick Kids saves and changes the lives of thousands of children year after year, and the impact Team I Love Lucy has made on their work is tremendous.
In her memory and to honour her life and her presence in the world, we are sharing these photos. Life is precious.
