on the university grounds

I had the pleasure of spending a small portion of the evening with this family a few weeks ago. Based on my text messages with the mother beforehand, I had a strong feeling that they would be easy and fun. I wasn’t disappointed! We spent nearly an hour running around the grounds of the university. It was a warm, fall day, and the sun and the clouds were nearly perfect. I was largely inspired by this Alaskan photographer that night, and my pictures reflect her moody images that she is known for.

s + b + r by the bessborough

This was my second time photographing a young family outside of the Bessborough this fall. I absolutely love this location. It offers so much diversity, and the pictures turn out like nothing else in my portfolio. In a good way, of course! This couple was so in love with their daughter, and with one another. They were sweet and inspiring. More sessions like these, please.

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

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.

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!

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

  • Thank you to all those who liked, commented, and sent me messages yesterday. I am overwhelmed by your love. I would like to share one more thing. Since 2013, I have used my blog as a creative outlet and my Instagram account as my diary. I feel it’s a much better platform to reach out to others, and to be more truthful (if we dare). I try to only follow those who don’t always show the ups and highs of their “perfect” lives. While I think that the more popular, beige square, ad-infused, California chic, glam mother accounts are beautiful, I also find them to be depressing and unoriginal. A miscarriage is real. It is nothing to be ashamed of. If you don’t choose to discuss yours, that’s totally fine! I needed to share mine in order to begin my grieving and healing process. I am now a mother to two children. This is something that I did not want to, nor will I ever hide. Yes, our second child came much too early and did not survive, but that does not make his/her life any less worthy. Our baby was alive at one time. Our baby has a soul. Now, our baby has a name and will forever be part of our family. We are a family of four- three on earth and one angel in heaven. So, thanks again all. Sadness. What a difference a year can make. Last holiday season, Remy turned 10 months old. She had just gotten her first two teeth, and on Christmas morning, had learned to crawl. This year, we are mourning the loss of our second child. I suffered a miscarriage this week, and it has left a deep void in our family. This was going to be our Christmas card where we revealed to friends and family our joyous secret. Now, it remains one of our only photos as a family of four. Because of this, I want to share it with the world. Give your children an extra hug and kiss for me tonight. You are so blessed to have them. All my love, Emory.
