fall pet session

When I was first contacted by M + T, I was asked if I could photograph them with their cat and dog. I was told that they were turned down by a few other photographers because of their pets. How could I say no after hearing that? I’ll admit that I was a little nervous to photograph a cat in an open conservation area. Yet, it would only mean that I would have something else to add to my resume. Plus, they were all so easy to work with! The cat was actually the most laid back one in the bunch.

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

saskatchewan river

Geoffrey, Remy, and I are lucky to live in a city where the river runs through it. We’ve both lived here, off and on, for the last ten years. In fact, all three of us have roots in this city, though none of us have spent our entire childhoods here.

It’s funny how life goes in circles. I don’t think that this is a negative thing. Native Americans view time as cyclical rather than linear. While I’m not sure which viewpoint is “correct,” I do like where we are now. Look at this scenery. How could I not?

All I know is that summer is coming once again, and we are so lucky to be able to take these walks along the river everyday. We come back refreshed, restored, rejuvenated. Almost whole again.

I hope that each of you also have a place that you can visit that give you the same feelings of serenity. Mother nature is a blessed thing, and we certainly can use such a place in this crazy world.

7 months

remy-7-months-3My darling girl is officially seven months old. These are her latest milestones:

– she sits up on her own, unassisted 
– she stands on her feet, assisted
– she constantly sticks out her tongue
– she fake coughs
– she is now on solids (and breast milk)

remy-7-months-9remy-7-months-10Where, where, where has the time gone? Oh, how I wish I could shrink her down to a newborn again. I’m so dreading her turning a year old!

remy-7-months-5Happy Monday, everyone!

matching green dresses

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetHave any of you ever seen The Money Pit? It has always been one of my favourite movies. Little did I know that I would one day be living it out.

Our new home so far has had its share of issues. Remember the scene in the film where Tom Hanks and Shelley Long had to boil water in order to take a bath? We did that for a week. Or when Hanks rings the doorbell and gets shocked, so he starts knocking on the door and it falls in? I got locked out one afternoon when I tried unlocking the door and my key got stuck in the lock and is now permanently bent. Or when they had to pack up the house and move out in order for it to get exterminated? Oh wait, that was us.

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetLast week was a complete nightmare. We ended up having to move back to the acreage while our own money pit was getting sprayed. While we were staying there, I wanted to make the most of it. I slowly began to feel more like myself. The weather was gorgeous, and the dogs were able to roam freely, and my little sidekick of a daughter adjusted exceptionally well. So on one particular day, I put on our new green dresses, and Remy and I had a photo shoot.

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetThank goodness for my family. If it wasn’t for them, I don’t know where we would’ve gone with all of our things, a baby, two dogs, and a cat. We will turn this money pit around, slowly, but surely.

yards and yards of gravel

The Little Barn Gravel - 3Hey guys! Well, we finally did it. After a year and a half we took the plunge and ordered gravel for The Little Barn’s driveway. Above is a photograph of how the house looked before the gravel.

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetGeoffrey ended up spreading all eight yards of gravel with merely a shovel and well into a few evenings. This was taken while he was distributing it.

The Little Barn Gravel - 1Now our home no longer looks like it’s been neglected. All we need now is an address sign and fence. Baby steps.
