Portraits in Chief Grizzly Bear Park

Every year I photograph Mr. Andrew Swan and his family.  Mr. Swan is the MLS for Minto in Winnipeg, the Minister of Justice and Attorney General.  It’s been great to watch his girls grow over the years, and I often see him at different functions I photograph.    Every year we choose a different location, but  stay in his riding.   This year the photo was  in Chief Grizzly Bear Park.   I had no idea of such a park, as I drive on Sherbrook street many
