Rachel McAdams at Habitat for Humanity Build

I was honoured when I was asked to be the photographer at this St. Thomas, Ontario Habitat for Humanity build. Especially so, since Rachel McAdams and her family was to appear to help out as well! The build was happening on Westlake Dr and was still at the stage of digging out the ground for the footings and foundation.

It was wonderful meeting the McAdams family – they are really a wonderful hard-working family, and really lovely to speak with.

This is the first build in St. Thomas for Habitat for Humanity, and we’re looking forward to more in the future!

Habitat for Humanity – Edmonton St Dedication

This was a special day for a special family. Kerri Ronson and her son were given a dedication ceremony for their new home on Edmonton St in London. They have been waiting for a long time for this. Kerri’s son has cerebral palsy and after funding was cut short for the care of her son, she had to take matters into her own hands. She runs a business doing dog grooming (London Poodle Boutique) due to the need for flexible hours for her son’s care. She applied for a home through Habitat for Humanity and was accepted!

After the long wait of approval, funding, building, and all she finally has a completed fully accessible home for her and her son! The dedication was Jul 26th with a lot of family, friends, and neighbours showing up to support her.

Here are the photos I took during the dedication!

Habitat for Humanity – Windows of Opportunity Event

The event for the Habitat for Humanity Windows of Opportunity in London, Ontario was a success! There were many, many usable items and art pieces donated for auction to raise money for the organization. Andrew Cole was present to perform with a choir, and on his own – what an amazing talent to have, and an all around humorous and easy going person to be around.

My piece ended up fetching $270 for Habitat for Humanity, which I’m overjoyed with! It is such a great feeling to help out such an organization as best I can with my time, talent, and resources.

Here are some photos I took at the event, hosted at the Delta London Armouries in downtown London.

Habitat for Humanity – Windows of Opportunity Paint Stripping

I was able to get out and work on the window frame I have for Habitat for Humanity‘s Windows of Opportunity Gala. I used a heavy paint stripper to remove the layers of paint and putty formed on the window. It wasn’t able to get it all off, so I used a heat gun at the end to warm up and loosen the rest of the putty holding the glass in place. A couple pieces broke so I had to get new pieces of glass – six pieces to be exact.

Here are the resulting images:

Habitat for Humanity – Finkle St

I couldn’t say no to another Habitat for Humanity London invite to Woodstock, Ontario for a Dedication Ceremony on Finkle St. The house was built with only some minor touch-ups left to complete it for the family to move in by the end of the week! What a great feeling for them and a giant weight off their shoulders. A Woodstock city councillor, Jim Northcott was in attendance and spoke a few words of the unveiling as well.

Here are some photos from the event!

Habitat for Humanity – Edmonton St

I had the great opportunity to visit an unveiling of the second accessible Habitat for Humanity home built in London, Ontario. The foundation had not been dug out at the time of this release, however the house was near completion off-site and the plans were laid out for all to see. It was quite an honour being able to capture this event for the organization and the family involved for their future memories.

The location is further to the east end of London on Edmonton St.

Here are some photos from the event!
