the park at golden hour

Earlier this month I met with a family and photographed them in a park near their home. They frolicked outside for about an hour. The two little girls played on the swings and in the sand.

It took a bit of bribing to get them to leave the park and go for a walk in the grass. After a promise of chasing jack rabbits and rolling down the hill was made, they finally left willingly.

It was a hot, spring evening and the sun was starting to go down towards the latter half of our session. I love Golden Hour. It brings out the warm and dark tones, and photographs need very minimal editing. It makes everything seem more romantic.

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

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.

He taught me that if you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it at full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be.”
