river maternity session

This mother-to-be was such a joy to work with. She radiated beauty and a quiet confidence, and it was evident just how excited she and her boyfriend were to become first-time parents. If I could have a maternity session every week like this one, I would be one happy mama.

These are just a few of those photographs. To book a session, please visit Prudence + Me Photography.

vegan almond + blueberry biscotti

This is a different take on a traditional biscotti. It contains no dairy or animal products, and is rather simple and easy to make! Serve with any hot beverage.

Ingredients:

2 cups all purpose flour
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder
¾ cup sugar
¼ cup almond milk
1 flax egg
1 tsp vanilla
½ cup blueberries
soy margarine (to grease)

Steps:

1. Combine the first 3 dry ingredients into a medium-sized bowl. Mix well.

2. Combine the sugar, almond milk, flax egg, vanilla, and blueberries into a large bowl. Stir until just combined. Slowly fold in the dry ingredients. Mix until a firm dough is formed.

3. Place the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

4. Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease a baking sheet with soy margarine. Form the dough into a log, 6″ wide and 1″ tall.

5. Put the dough into the oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes. Remove and let cool for 20 minutes.

6. Turn the oven up to 350°F. Meanwhile, cut the log into ¾” pieces. Place the biscotti back in the oven and cook for approximately 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove and let cool before serving.

a whimsical wedding

This couple from this wedding so reminded me of two characters in a Wes Anderson film. They were quirky and entertaining and had a charming ceremony in a location that any film director would be jealous of. I was so grateful to be part of their day!

g + g engagement

These two were recently married. In addition to photographing their wedding, I was asked to take their engagement pictures. I let them pick the location that night. We left the city and drove for a short distance. We came to a spot that had a lake on the right and a prairie field on the left. Everywhere we turned it was picture-perfect, just like they were.

(Even though this was one of the most gorgeous couples that I have photographed, they asked that I do not show their faces. Out of respect to them, I promised that I wouldn’t.)

cranberry flats

Geoffrey is currently out-of-province away on training for a new career. He has been gone for a few weeks and do we ever miss him. Prior to him leaving, we had our last family session of the summer. Look at this scenery. I love where we live. 

This summer cannot end soon enough. We’re so excited to have him back next month!

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • A horribly blurry picture that pretty much sums up our week together. It's been 5 days and our home is nearly flu-free. Dada is off working in a different province, (smiles aside) Remy is not happy with me today, our house is a renovation disaster, and I have a photography session scheduled tomorrow that I'm not yet sure if I need to hire a babysitter for. I'm not going to lie, I'm really looking forward to this week being over with. It was not easy, however that's life. There is so much that I do have to be thankful for! We are in good health 99% of the time. My husband finally has a great job. I am lucky to be able to work when I want at what I want. We have a house. Most importantly, I have my little goose to snuggle with. I sincerely hope that if anyone else is having a bad day/week/month/year, that you can also find the silver lining. Our own life is not for everyone, nor is it Instagram perfect. If we're lucky, it is the one that we desire, even in the difficult times. Enjoy your weekend! Thank goodness for breastfeeding. My darling caught her first flu yesterday. I tried giving her bland foods and drinks all day- she wouldn't touch them. Then I tried her favourites- still nothing. Instead, all she wanted to do was nurse round the clock. That is how we spent the majority of the day- nursing, bathing, cuddling, barfing, repeating.
My goal was to breastfeed Remy until she was 18 months old. After that I had no plans. As she is nearing month 19 earthside, I've discovered that she has no intention of stopping. 
On the rare occasions when she's sick, I'm reminded of why we have kept it up for this long, and why we keep on going. I'm almost certain that she would've become dehydrated yesterday if it wasn't for me nursing her. So although fed is best, the breast is truly a gift.
