The Delta Optimist, our local rag here in Tsawwassen and Ladner runs an annual Reader's Choice Awards for the best in the area, ranging from best grocer, coffee shops, and book stores to best services for dry cleaning, appliance repair and aesthetics. My in-laws at Sublime, the local art supply store here in Tsawwassen, have won the last couple of years for best Art Gallery and I decided to take a chance and see if i could round up enough votes to get The Pauhaus out there.
As usual, a good hustle paid off and The Pauhaus won for best Portrait Photography!
We were treated to a Reception Dinner at Beach Grove Golf Club in Tsawwassen. Two drinks on the house with a variety of appies and mini desserts, Kevin and I enjoyed a child-free evening in the fresh air and sunshine on the patio. We chatted with the other lucky winners from Meridian Meats, Delta Hospital Aux Thrift Shop and Marlin Travel before heading in to receive our plaques and possibly win one of the door prizes!
I got my plaque and Kevin's ticket won him a carpet! It was a fun night and a great chance to mingle and meet with the other locals in town.
A huge huge HUGE thank you to all those that took the time to fill out the ballots and help The Pauhaus soar to new heights. It's been a crazy 8-9 months since I took the leap to start up my photography and I would not be here without all the support from family and friends.
This is only the beginning! Looking forward to what the future has in store for us and lots of ideas brewing to bring you more of the best we have to offer!
