eleventh anniversary

Yesterday we celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary.

As we are preparing to add another new life into our family, I can’t help but reflect on the early days of our relationship. Little did we know when we first started dating where our lives would lead us. In fact, we were planning on living very different lives. I was headed to Edinburgh, Scotland to undertake my Masters degree in Art History, and Geoffrey was finishing his last year of his BA at university.

We had planned on having a very new and very long distance relationship for the first year. However, I ended up not going, and that’s when we really began our lives together. We were quick to become engaged, buy our first place together (with the help of our parents), and then get married. Over the next 5 years, we travelled, worked hard, moved a few times, adopted a few animals, really got to know one another, and truly enjoyed just having one another.

These last 6 years have been all about our family. They’ve obviously been very different, but just as loving and enjoyable.

One never really knows how their life will turn out when they get married, and to me, that is just so fascinating. Hopefully it is for the better, and much comes from your marriage! But whether or not you choose to is completely up to you. I’m just thankful that I did, and we did together.

Happy anniversary, Geo. Pictures were taken by Oarsman Photography.

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!

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!
