Edmonton Inspired Families: Shining a light on Type 1 Diabetes

Our Edmonton Inspired Families spotlight feature with Sarah Mavro Photography is shining a light on Type 1 Diabetes as we kick off November. Sarah is an amazing local photographer and we love how she is giving back through her business! Photographers have the unique gift of not only hearing someone’s life story but capture it to share it through images.

Thank you Sarah for sharing your talents and for being a shining light!


Hey there! I'm Sarah of Sarah Mavro Photography. November is Diabetes Awareness month, and I've been working on a small project since the summer to help spread a little awareness on this disease.

Erin (as humble as she is) is one of the most badass, strong moms I know. Erins son Finn was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at just three years old. I approached Erin about the idea of taking a few photos of Finn and her, and asking her a few questions about what their experience with Diabetes has been like thus far. Sadly, their experience with this terrible disease isn't uncommon. Which is why we were hoping together we could shine a little light on Type 1 Diabetes, to raise awareness and maybe make it a little easier for any parents going through something similar to know they aren't alone. 


I also wanted to raise some funds for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. For any session booked with me during the month of November, you’ll receive 50% off your session fee, and the other 50% will go directly to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (that is $175 savings for you, and $175 to the JDRF). Feel free to contact me for more details!


The full interview can be read on Sarah’s blog http://sarahmavro.com/2018/11/01/type-1-diabetes-finns-story/

Erin details their time leading up to Finns diagnosis as well as some of their experiences during and post diagnosis.
