family photography session

In the hopes of gaining more photography clients, I decided to try something new. I ended up visiting the second largest city in our province to advertise in. Then, Geoffrey, Remy, and I made a day of it. We combined a work trip into our first family trip, and we spent the day exploring the city and taking pictures.

It made for a long day of traveling in that it was 2.5 hours either way. However, it was extremely fun and productive. Additionally, I met the most beautiful family there. She was from South Africa and he was from Romania. They were newlywed, and I could certainly feel their love and devotion to one another. We laughed the entire time as well! It was just a really fun session.

After I came home, edited the photographs, and sent them to the family, I was told that I am now their photographer for all important future events.

It was a great way to meet new clients that I otherwise might have missed. I think that I might make this a monthly excursion.

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

6th wedding anniversary

wedding anniversarySix years ago today, I married my husband Geoffrey. We ended up eloping. It was just us, three strangers, and our marriage commissioner. Five years later, we conceived Remy on this very day. So that’s pretty special, right? My husband and my daughter forever remain my two favourite gifts. 

You can relive our fifth wedding anniversary video here. Have a wonderful week!

Easter Lovers

“Faith makes all things possible … love makes all things easy.”

– D.L. Moody

I hope that each of you are having a wonderful Easter! I’ve been able to acquire some much needed time off from work, and was able to spend time with family members who came from both near and far. Let’s all enjoy our remaining days of leisure.

picture our anniversary

001.jpg1234517691887002.jpg12003.jpg141316Two days ago, my husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary. Considering that we only did date for a total of nine months, we have been married for almost as long as we have been together! June 6 was also the seventieth anniversary of D-Day, as well as a popular day for celebrity break-ups. I hope that’s not an omen.

The day began with Geoffrey getting ready for work. After he left, I got up and took care of our three pets that decided that it was a perfect morning to each have a minor medical issue. By 8 am, I was already out with Truman for our morning run. When I got back I opened my anniversary gift (Photoshop!) and spent the morning trying to install it while working on the HS Store. I quickly became frustrated with the program’s software so I had to enlist the help of my step-father to finish it for me. I sold a few items, got ready, and went into town to meet my friend for coffee.

By the time Geoffrey got home after work, he had less than ten minutes to eat supper. We usually try to cram many things into our days and nights together and that day was no different. The movie that we chose started at 7 pm. He hurriedly changed and we drove to a field where we had our first joint photo op in almost a year. Then we drove into town and purchased our tickets to see Locke which to our good fortune was playing at our favourite theatre. However, while we were waiting we were told that there was a technical problem with the film and that the showing may be cancelled. So we waited, Instagrammed, and waited some more. Finally, we were told that everything was in working order. Thank goodness, because it was such a good film.

After the movie ended we picked up some iced coffees and went home. Geoffrey took Truman for one final walk and we fell asleep watching The Adventures of Babysitting. Does it sound like a random and somewhat hectic anniversary? Yes, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. The way we spent it pretty much epitomizes how we have spent the last four years as a married couple. The real relaxation will happen this week while we will be glamping in the same national park that we visited last year. I can’t wait to share the photos with you all!

Have a great week, friends!

midnight rider

IMG_1.jpg IMG_3.jpg IMG_8.jpgIMG_9.jpgIMG_10.jpgI love going for late night drives. Before my husband and I were married, and while we were in that awkward I-like-you-more-than-a-friend-but-am-going-to-treat-this-like-an-elementary-school-crush-and-not-make-a-move stage, one thing that we used to do almost every night was pick the other person up and take them for a long drive around the city. Our drives would last for hours and go well into the next morning. Our goal was to explore both the interior and the outskirts of the city, and to drive until we got lost. We would talk about almost anything, no topic was off limits. Our drives were fun and innocent, much like our relationship at the time. I was able to learn so much about this amazing person sitting next to me, and the more that we shared, the more I felt as if I had always known him.

Now, with the craziness that makes up our day-to-day lives, midnight drives are thing that we do not get to do very often. However, once in a blue moon, usually when the weather is cold and the dogs have cabin fever, we will all hop into our vehicle, grab some coffee, and go for a late night escapade. I still feel as if we have our deepest and clearest conversations whenever we drive for an extended period of time. I think that our drives are much more important than getting dressed up and going out on dates to movies and suppers, because it is within the confines of a vehicle that we express our true selves to one another, and consequently our goals for the future. I love that we can bring along our little pet family with us, since they are such an important part of our life as a couple. Maybe someday we will also be blessed enough to have a sleeping child in the back of our vehicle as well.

P.S. Happy birthday to my very wonderful step-dad. You have given us all so much! Also, very happy (belated) birthday to my mother-in-law. Without you, I would never have met my love.

  • Choose love. Thank you all for the love on my previous post. Grief is an awful thing that each and every one of us go through. I'm so thankful for this amazing community of wonderful people. I know I haven't been very present on it lately (or probably too present to some of you), but much has changed and I'm trying to focus more on "real life" as opposed to these beautiful, tiny squares that offer us snippets into other worlds. That's not to say that I find @Instagram any less important! I still consider it to be a vital part of social media and love it to death. I'm merely going through personal stuff. I plan to return to posting daily once things have settled down over here. Until then, keep showing me photographs of your lives. I cherish such views. (Here's a picture from last week's engagement session.)
