remy’s 2nd birthday photography

This year, Remy’s birthday party didn’t go as planned. I had initially booked a room at a local play centre and had invited all of our family members that live near us. As her birthday drew closer, more and more of our family were unable to make it. This included my husband! With less than two weeks to go, I had no choice but to cancel everything. Instead, we ended up having about four mini parties with various family members on the days that worked for them. It was a week of sheer exhaustion (given that no one actually lives in the city), but we made it! Remy is so loved, which makes me so happy.

For our own intimate celebration with just the three of us, I decided to do a Morning in the Life where I photographed our daily ritual at home. It began with Remy’s bath. Next, we played in our master bedroom. Then Geoffrey and I sat with her while she ate her late morning snack, we opened birthday presents, and then we sat on the couch and played with some of her new toys.

Even though two rooms in our house are under renovations, I wanted to document exactly how we spent even just part of our day at this moment in our lives. From the gentle light of the morning sun in our bathroom, to Remy playing with her toys on our bed, to the length of her beautiful hair, to the shortness of mine, to Geoff’s clothes, I feel as if I have to capture it all. Our home is almost exactly how we would like it- which means that we are probably getting ready to sell it. But, all of this is what makes us unique. This is our life with a now two-year-old.

What sorts of things do you wish to never forget? Good or bad, let me know below.

this time last year

Hey everyone! My not-so-little girl will be celebrating her second birthday in just a few days. I intend on having a post dedicated to her then. In the meantime, I recently had a look back at the photographs from her first birthday. What a whirlwind. It was certainly my favourite party that I’ve ever thrown and attended (probably because the guest of honour and occasion was so special). ;-)))

Here are some additional pictures that I didn’t publish, but love dearly.

See you in a few days!

remy’s moonrise kingdom photographs (part 3)

This is the last post of Remy’s birthday pictures. I wish that I could publish more! Having you all see the photographs makes it feel as if you were there as well.

Selecting only thirty-six of 333 images was so difficult. However, I think that the ones that I did settle upon embody the essence of the party. In my opinion, it was visually stunning, filled with all of the best people, and love. I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

I am so glad that we went with Meraki + Light. These pictures turned out to be the most beautiful ones that our family now have.

remy’s moonrise kingdom photographs (part 2)

A few days ago, I revealed the photographs from the first part of Remy’s Moonrise Kingdom party. 

When I had booked Tammy from Meraki + Light, we had discussed having family portraits taken. Given that there was no natural light in the room that we rented, we decided to go into the library itself and take some pictures by the large windows. Here are a few of those photos. I think they turned out perfectly.

remy’s moonrise kingdom photographs (part 1)

2y5a00796-copyWe had decided to hire a photographer for Remy’s birthday party shortly after deciding to make it a big event. Much like her birth, we knew that we didn’t want to worry about capturing the many moments, but to be completely focused on our little girl without any distractions. 

2y5a00837-copyThere is an incredible amount of photographers in our city, so which one would we choose? Knowing that my neighbour has had a few family portraits done, I enlisted her help. I asked her if she could pick her top three photographers in the city, which ones would they be? Without hesitation she answered that she would give anything to be photographed by Meraki + Light. 

2y5a00752-copyWith that in mind, I took a look at their website. I immediately fell in love with each and every one of their pictures. I contacted Tammy (who is also the sweetest person ever), and after a few conversations, booked her for the party.

Here is part one of the pictures.
