Alicia Thurston Photography Shares the importance of photographing and sharing beautifully Rethink Breast Cancer’s Booby ball Mini Booby Ball At Berkeley Church.

The afternoon affair is a one-of-a-kind event with great entertainment, music and décor set to a kiddie theme. Parents mingle over cocktails while kids explore our family-friendly activities.

All proceeds from the event go directly to Rethink Breast Cancer’s mission to empower young people worldwide who are concerned about and affected by breast cancer including some resources for families dealing with cancer.

What are some of your first thoughts reflecting on the necessity and meaningful of the Rethink Breast Cancer organization specifically during these challenging times?

Now more than ever we need to think about how we show up as humans. This pandemic has made it clear that some will continue to do the hard work even during hard times. Although Rethink has had to cancel events this year, they still need to raise funds to keep incentives going for women facing breast cancer.

And as a side note, I’ve been careful to always wear masks when in a public space so that I am doing my part in protecting those who’s health is at risk. I think Canada has done a tremendous job supporting each other in that way and I hope it keeps up.

What was the feeling you got when you first stepped into the Berkeley Church all styled up for this event?

As always, the Rethink team had outdone themselves. They always transform a space to allow kids to walk in and use their imagination and play. Berkeley Church is such an amazing venue for the boobyball mini because it’s historic and impressive presence lends to the creative process.

What did the theme of chasing science for this years Booby Ball open up to the experience for the guests ?

I think this was the most interactive boobyball mini to date. Science lends to so many fun activities for the kids and everyone had a ball!

On a comment on the main booby ball page someone commented that they would love to attend the mini booby ball because the pictures made it look so fun ! Its not as easy as one would think to translate fun onto pictures what are some of the elements that are necessary in your process?

Thats such a sweet compliment! I honestly just follow the fun. I think it’s important to get down to the kids level and see what they’re seeing.

During this time you are sharing very openly your range of feelings and fluctuations begin an entrepreneur at this time, ( a recent post you talk about the pendulum swing of feeling on top and then quite the opposite )what have been some of the positive ramifications of sparking these dialogues.

I think it’s more about being transparent with my family, friends and clients. Letting everyone see the vulnerable sides could open up a window where they feel safe to do the same.

I believe a world where we all have the space to show up as we are is a better world and I hope for that one day.
