Lazy Daisy’s Halloween Costume Contest 2012

Friday, September 28th, 2012

I can’t tell you how much I’ve LOVED having Lazy Daisy’s join the Coxwell & Gerrard neighbourhood! LDC has been around for a year now and it’d be hard to imagine the ‘hood without Dawn and her crew, right?

For the 2nd year in a row, Lazy Daisy’s Cafe and Sara Desjardins Photography (me!) are joining up to bring you the Halloween Costume Contest. It was such a hit last year that I couldn’t wait to announce the 2012 event.

Our goal is to bring all of the parents and kids in the neighbourhood out to the Cafe just before the Trick-or-Treating begins.

Stop by to grab a tea, coffee or Daisy’s Spooktacular Halloween Cookie AND I’ll also be set up with all of my gear to take quick portraits of the ghosts, goblins and ghouls that walk through the doors.

Portraits will be shared on my Facebook Page (become a Fan here) shortly after Halloween and then the Voting begins! Everyone will have a chance to Vote for their favourite costume by ‘Liking’ their favourite image.  The costumed-kid with the most Likes on their image will WIN a FREE Portrait Mini-Session with me…no costume needed for that one! (Grandma & Grampa are gonna LOVE this year’s Christmas gift!)

So share this post with all of your friends & family in the Coxwell & Gerrard/Upper Beaches area and let’s have us some Halloween F-U-N!

Of course, there is no purchase necessary to enter, we just ask that you sign up to our respective Email Newsletters (on that day) and we’d love for you to join our Facebook Pages as we’re planning to do several more events together in the future and this will keep you posted with what’s going on….



We’re so excited to be able to bring the community out for such a great event!


Please remember to SHARE this event with your neighbours – this is what community is all about :)

Oh…feel free to leave comments of excitement & joy below…we’re nervously excited about it and need all the support we can get!

FAMILY DAY Mini Sessions

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

***A couple of spots left as of FRI FEB 17 @ 9am***


In my mind, Photography + Winter = My Misery. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind the winter but I’m not a big fan of shooting outside for very long when it’s cold! Over the past few years I’ve been trying to find a solution to my whining cold-weather dilemma and I’ve finally done it!

This FAMILY DAY (Feb 20), I’ll be moving into Lazy Daisy’s Cafe for the afternoon and turning a corner into a cozy, mini-studio. From 2pm-7pm you can book a mini Family Portrait session. Family Day is a great opportunity to get your family’s portrait taken.

When’s the last time you had ALL your family in one photo? It’s time.


It's Family Day! Celebrate with a Family Portrait by Sara Desjardins Photography :)
