    Water baby. This is Remy's new "walk." I feel like it's an indication that she's spending way too much time with our dogs. 👶🏼🐶🤦🏼‍♀️

mother’s day

“The loveliest masterpiece of the heart of God is the love of a Mother.” St. Therese of Lisieux

I recently had the pleasure of photographing a beautiful family just outside of the city in which we live. They have a young daughter, and so naturally, I couldn’t have been more thrilled to capture them on film.

Both mother and father were so attentive and so affectionate. It was the mother’s love, though, that really stood out to me. Their deep bond was visible. It made me very much yearn for Remy. I couldn’t wait to get home and embrace her!

Here are just a few of those photographs. To see more, or to book your own session, visit Prudence + Me Photography.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Mother’s Day. Whether or not you have a child of your own, you deserve to be celebrated as a woman.

october corn maze

corn-maze-1Last Sunday, Geoffrey, Remy, and I visited a local corn maze. Located just outside of the city, it’s actually on the highway to The Little Barn. Because it’s held at the same location each year, I told my husband that one great aspect to living in TLB was that we would be only a few minutes away from the corn maze. Then we moved, and once again, it’s a bit of a drive for us.

corn-maze-12corn-maze-3Like I said, we had been planning on going to the maze for months. Actually, I’ve been planning it since before Remy was born. This was something that Geoffrey and I have done every year since we started dating. Fall is our favourite season, and being outside in the maze on what usually ends up being a grey day (also our favourite), is like heaven to us. We intend to take Remy to a corn maze every year until she’s too cool to go with us anymore. I’m honestly just so excited for this tradition!

corn-maze-8corn-maze-9Being so close to Halloween, I was worried that the maze was going to be busy. It turns out that we were virtually the only ones there. We couldn’t have planned it better. We had so much fun, and little Rem was a’maze’d.

corn-maze-11All in all, the maze was muddy and the weather was a little chilly and gloomy. It was absolutely perfect.

corn-maze-15Only four days until Halloween!

taste of saskatchewan 

img_6620Hey guys! You may have noticed that I took a little break from blogging. The fact of the matter is that I have a teething baby at home, and it took all of my energy to keep her content during the day. She recently went from one nightly feeding to waking up three to four times throughout the night. Taking care of her fussiness, all the while not being allowed to consume caffeine was exhausting. But she seems to be doing much better now, so I can return to blogging.

img_6623Last week we were able to steal some family time and visit the annual food festival that occurs in the city every summer. Over thirty vendors and sixty bands attend this event. Each restaurant generally offers around three of their bestselling and unique dishes. The idea is to go and try as many as you can.

img_6624I was boring and just got fish and chips from Joey’s. Geoffrey was a little more adventurous and tried dishes from Saskatoon Asian and The Canadian Brewhouse. We’ve gone to Taste of Saskatchewan a few times in the past. I wasn’t sure how it would be this time with a four month old baby, but Remy did amazingly well. As long as we’re outdoors and there are things or people to see, she’s a content little girl.

img_6618The weather was also really beautiful that evening. After grabbing our food, we went and sat alongside the river. There we watched the skidoos and listened to the live music. Afterwards, we went for a walk. 

img_6619I think that this was our first official outing/date as a family of three. I can’t believe that we have waited this long, but in reality, it doesn’t really bother me. It was such a special evening. I really do love my new family.

giving at easter

untitledIn anticipation of this religious holiday, I was going to do my usual lead-up-to posts. From crafts, to recipes, to outfits, all things fun and cutesy for my readers. However, today I’ve chosen to swap out my 10 best Easter recipe post for one that is a little more meaningful.

Not too long ago, a story came to light in the news that I have been following very closely:

“Life was tough for 12 dachshunds before they arrived at the Saskatchewan SPCA earlier this month.

The neglected wiener dogs were rescued from a residence in Saskatchewan. Another eight dachshunds were rescued but had injuries that were too severe and couldn’t be saved. 

“Improper shelter, inadequate food or water and medical care not being provided, so these guys came to us and they were in poor shape,” Saskatoon SPCA executive director Patricia Cameron said. 

The survivors now need a lot of help, she said.

“All of the dogs need dental care and its going to actually amount to about $20,000 dollars, so we are appealing to the community to help these dogs.”

An investigation into what happened to these dogs is ongoing.”

– CBCNews, Saskatoon

untitled1This story really hit home with me, not only because because our own Holly is a Corgi/Dachshund mix, but because we also rescued her from the SPCA. I could never imagine doing this to her, let alone 20 little Dachshunds. So, because of Easter, and the sad nature of this tale, I’ve decided to donate money to the fundraiser for these Dachshunds and their medical bills. I’ve chosen Holy Guacamole in particular. He has the least amount raised so far, and has a cherry eye (just like Holly). You can see the Racing to a New Life campaign here.

You don’t have to donate to any organization this Easter, but I wholly encourage it. It doesn’t have to be to this fundraiser specifically, either. The possibilities are endless. There are a ton of local charities in every city and state on a global scale. If you do chose a rescue organization for animals though, think of it as the Easter Bunny visiting them in the shelter or their foster homes.

11102690_10153190998789443_807411854597704518_nHave an enjoyable and joyous weekend, everyone! See you on Easter Sunday.
