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.

hear the gentle rhythm

“God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world.” Acts 5:34-42; John 6:1-15

Today is the feast day of Saint Peter Chanel, priest and martyr. Our church bulletin reads:

“Peter Chanel … was one of the original members of the Society of Mary, commonly known as Marists. Today the society consists of ‘men and women who strive to live the gospel the way Mary lived … we too can hear the gentle rhythms of the grace of God in our lives by making our manner of thinking, judging, feeling, and acting.’ Listen to Mary and you, too, can be guided by her gentleness and grace. The world needs more of this kind of strength!” Kristopher Seaman

I was never particularly religious before having my daughter. Remy changed my views on almost everything, and as such, my Catholic faith was restored. I feel as if I resonate with Mary now that I, too, am a mother. I truly believe that myself and others could benefit from this way of living outlined above.

Have a lovely weekend, all.

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

  • A few weeks ago we were running around in short sleeve dresses. Now we're in jackets and hats. 🍂 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!
