    Water baby. This is Remy's new "walk." I feel like it's an indication that she's spending way too much time with our dogs. 👶🏼🐶🤦🏼‍♀️

#babylove: my toddler life review

#BabyLove: My Toddler Life is a book that has a wonderful message for both child and parent. Simply stated, “put down our phones.”

Written and illustrated by Corine Dehghanpisheh, it brings forth a situation that most likely rings true to all mothers and fathers. I know that I’m guilty of taking pictures and videos of Remy all day, not only for my own keepsake but to send to my husband who rarely sees her anymore. If I’m not paying attention, she will grab my iPhone and start playing with it. I usually just take it away from her. What I should be doing is not documenting every second of her life to begin with.

This picture book is colourful and fun with adorable illustrations, large lettering, and cute rhymes. Remy immensely enjoyed having it read to her. It even came with stickers!

#BabyLove: My Toddler Life is a great reminder to all parents and caregivers. Pick one up for yourself, and for anyone else that you know who could use a gentle and beautiful suggestion to do away with smartphones around children.

mother’s day

“The loveliest masterpiece of the heart of God is the love of a Mother.” St. Therese of Lisieux

I recently had the pleasure of photographing a beautiful family just outside of the city in which we live. They have a young daughter, and so naturally, I couldn’t have been more thrilled to capture them on film.

Both mother and father were so attentive and so affectionate. It was the mother’s love, though, that really stood out to me. Their deep bond was visible. It made me very much yearn for Remy. I couldn’t wait to get home and embrace her!

Here are just a few of those photographs. To see more, or to book your own session, visit Prudence + Me Photography.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Mother’s Day. Whether or not you have a child of your own, you deserve to be celebrated as a woman.

purdy’s chocolatier saskatoon

Purdy’s Chocolatier is a family-owned company based in British Columbia, Canada. In operation since 1907, they have been a “national favourite” for over 100 years.

Purdy’s Chocolatier recently opened its first store in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. I am so excited for this. Their chocolates are elegant, velvety, and delicious. Ranging from Himalayan Pink Salt Caramel to Snowball, they are unique and distinctive as well. I would say that my favourites so far are Mini Hedgehog, Petit Chocolat, and Almond Caramel. I prefer any chocolate that is simple and melts in my mouth.

Honestly, they were all so good! Try them out for yourself!

hanging terrarium: diy

To me, there is almost nothing more beautiful than a terrarium. To see a plethora of vibrant colours all contained within glass is like a living oil painting. I also love the challenge of keeping the greenery alive. When it flourishes, it’s a great achievement.

I purchased this hanging terrarium and air plant at the Gardenscape trade show. Remy and I went together and Geoffrey stayed behind in order to work on our house. Maneuvering a stroller through the displays while trying to keep grabby baby hands away from all of the plants proved to be difficult. I actually came home with a pocket full of succulent leaves courtesy of little miss. What I also picked up were a few great items to which I turned into a hanging terrarium.

Afterwards, I hung it up near our front window. It looks so beautiful. Too bad the wall behind it needs much work! Oh well. One project at a time. ;-)

Have a wonderful weekend.
