By Chadd Cawson Local Journalism Initiative Reporter A portrait is worth a thousand words and behind each one lies a unique story. Kimberly Rae of KRS Framing and Photography is partnering up with Akisqnuk First Nation in the new year to do portraits with Elders. Rae has also reached out to the Shuswap Band and the Metis Elders of the valley, and future sessions with them are to be established. Rae has already had a session with Metis couple, Pheb and Austin Goulet, and met with them on December 10 to capture their portrait. “Kimberley made us feel welcome and created a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere in her studio,” said Pheb. “We are proud to be a part of her portrait project. She is truly a gifted photographer.”
