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.”

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.

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

  • 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.
