Fresh Air Fund | Bus Arrival

A couple of months ago a friend asked if I would volunteer my time to the Fresh Air Fund. I had never heard of the Fresh Air Fund so they invited me to one of their meetings. We sat and talked (mostly about logistics of bringing the children and planning events) but at one point we went around the table and everyone told their favourite story about FAF. I was moved to tears listening to their stories and their passion. The Fresh Air Fund brings children from New York City and pairs them with host families in Ontario (and across the States) were they can get away from the concrete jungle and just be kids!

Fast forward to yesterday, it was bus arrival day!! Most of the kids were coming back to stay with the same host family as previous years. They were welcomed back with signs – and LOTS of hugs!

Waiting for the bus to arrive.

There are several events planned for the Fresh Air Fund Families this summer and I can’t wait to be a part of it! If you’re looking for more information about the FAF you can check out their website at

Happy 6th Birthday momstown!

This past month I got in touch with Jillian and Erin, owners of momstown Niagara. I am SO happy to announce that Liz Czinege Photography is momstown Niagara’s official photographer! I will be offering special discounts and exclusive mini sessions to all of the momstown moms. For those of you know don’t know about momstown, they are a great community for moms with children between the ages of 0-6 years. momstown connects moms with other moms – and resources – in their community! They have events and programs – almost every day – based around early childhood education programming and peer support. I highly recommend you check out their website; for more information and to learn how to get a free one month trial!

We kicked off our awesome partnership with momstown’s 6th Birthday Party at Heartland Forest! I photographed all of the vendors and different activities throughout the day. Everyone had an amazing time, with grab bags for the first 100 people to arrive, Lunar Jim, face painting – and what birthday party would be complete without a magician and a clown!

This was my simple little booth, one lucky mom won a free portrait session valued at $200! I can’t wait to photograph her family! Liz Czinege Photography The awesome folks at Springy’s Tot ShoppeSpringy's Husband&Wife team at Simple Sugar Design.Simple Sugar Design
