sprig west peg board

I purchased this rectangle peg board from a Canadian website that I use to buy the majority of Remy’s shoes. Although primarily a site for children’s moccasins, it features quality-made products for your home as well. I saw and fell in love with this interesting wall shelf by Sprig West.

Made of Baltic Birch, it can be mounted either horizontally or vertically. It comes with four pegs and a shelf, and can hold up to 80 lbs!

This shelf is unlike anything that I have seen before. Given that it is also made in Canada, I could not pass up purchasing it. I’m so glad that I did.

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.)

newborn photography session

I received a bit of an urgent email in June, in which I was asked if I could photograph a couple and their newborn child before they left town in a matter of days. They had come into the city so that the mother could deliver her baby in a hospital, and I believe that it had taken longer than they originally anticipated. After their son arrived, they had little time to enjoy being new parents before they had to leave their hotel and make the long trek back home.

I had a cancellation for a session that was scheduled for the next evening, so I gladly accepted. I will never turn down an opportunity to photograph a newborn.

I spent just over an hour capturing the family of three. It was a short and blissful session that was mostly filled with nursing and outfit changes. I can’t help but overshare some of the 450+ photographs that I took that night. I hope that you can all get a sense of the delicate atmosphere that was filled with soft baby cries, laughter, and the television as background noise.

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

at the lake

We had spent Canada Day this year at the same provincial park where we built our last home. Three years ago, it was just Geoffrey, myself, and our dogs having a picnic on our newly purchased lot. We sat on the untamed earth, that was wild with sand, cacti, grass, and ticks. Later we went for a bike ride. The weather was hot and looking back, we were so young and naive about what was to come.

Last year, we took Remy to the beach that was only a stone’s throw from our home. It was overcast and muggy that day. We were the only people there, and for that reason, I loved it. We didn’t stay long as she was only four months old and couldn’t really appreciate it. However, I will always remember it and will tell her about her first Canada Day when she’s older.

This year, the weather was incredibly warm. Almost too warm! The sun shone the entire day, and there was hardly a breeze. We packed up Remy and her new Radio Flyer Trike, and made the long drive back to the provincial park.

A big part of me hates going there. I have such a hard time letting go of things. I always have and it’s something that I need to work on. I miss our little home on that sandy street more than I can bare sometimes. I often let Geoffrey know as he is the one who ultimately made the decision for us to move. Perhaps one day we will be back for good.

We parked in the church parking lot, and decided to walk to the beach from there. It was so busy this year! There were families and dogs everywhere. There were also many people paddle boarding and kayaking. Remy loved it, though. She’s a big people-watcher, and over the last few months she has started engaging with strangers a lot more. She won everyone over with her squeals and giggles and chubby thighs.

We also couldn’t get her out of the water. She’s always been a water baby and that day was no different. We spent the entire time being in the lake. She would crawl in up to her neck, or if I held her hands then she walked in up to her armpits. The bottom was pure sand, which is one reason why I love that beach. It’s small and soft on your feet. The deeper we went, the colder it became. She didn’t mind one bit. My tough girl.

It was just an amazing day. Did you guys enjoy your Canada Day/Independence Day as well? Let me know!

photographing my birth photographer

Geoffrey and I met and fell in love with Sasha when she was one of the instructor’s at our birth prepardness class. She was also a doula, mother to four, and birth photographer. She wore many hats.

Sasha was one of the few people that was present for the duration of my labour. Because she was there for the most important moment for our little family, I think that I will always have a special bond with her. So as you could imagine, I was honoured when she said that she would like to hire me as her newborn photographer. She was about to give birth to her fifth child!

After her son arrived, I waited a month before driving out to their farm. It just so happened that it was also her birthday. How lucky was I to be able to not only meet that little cutie, but to spend an hour with her on such a special day? I swear, sometimes I have to pinch myself just to make sure that this new path that I’ve recently begun is real.

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