We look forward to working with the Lheidli T’enneh on similar initiatives for years to come.”

“The Lheidli T’enneh community was so inviting and such a joy to work with and photograph. I am so excited to be a part of welcoming the athletes and their families to Prince George for the 2015 Canada Winter Games” says Kathleen Rossel of Kay Ross Photography.
