g + g engagement

These two were recently married. In addition to photographing their wedding, I was asked to take their engagement pictures. I let them pick the location that night. We left the city and drove for a short distance. We came to a spot that had a lake on the right and a prairie field on the left. Everywhere we turned it was picture-perfect, just like they were.

(Even though this was one of the most gorgeous couples that I have photographed, they asked that I do not show their faces. Out of respect to them, I promised that I wouldn’t.)

my winter maternity photography

Winter Maternity Shoot - 20.1Winter Maternity Shoot - 1Ladies and gentlemen, I am so happy to finally be revealing my maternity pictures to all of you! My inspiration came from these photographs, as well as this photo shoot. I love outdoor photography, and was specifically wanting to convey the beauty of the snow on the landscape. I find that most winter landscapes appear so elegant and fragile, and I wanted that sense of delicacy and to be incorporated into my maternity pictures. I hope that you can also get a sense of that.

in october

Screen Shot 2015-10-29 at 9.54.13 AMThe month of October came and went so quickly that I almost can’t believe that it was even here. These are some of the things that we got up to during that busy time.

Beard Oil DIY - 9Did you happen to see my do-it-yourself posts? First, I featured an easy beard oil tutorial. Then I had a duo candy and candle pumpkin holder, just in time for Halloween.

il_fullxfull.735150734_32zlI had several fashion posts, from a cropped jacket restyle, to a movie date outfit, to my favourite baby finds on Etsy.

Pregnancy Pillow - 3Speaking of babies, I shared my best purchase thus far, and celebrated being 20 weeks along!

Movie Date OOTD - 10Surprisingly, we only went to one film last month! However, we did watch several online, and I discussed the scariest ones here.

IMG_2740Wren from Florian shared her enchanted home tour on the blog.

Edmonton Trip - 13We also took a weekend trip to our dream Canadian city, and one that we hope to move to in just a few short months.

IMG_0887Last but not least, Truman celebrated his birthday at the end of October. He is now 3 years old.

IMG_0793Now that we are already into November, the days are getting shorter and colder. Soon there will be snow, and I will be having my 30th birthday this month. Yikes!

  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • Ok, this is directed to all you green thumbs out there. How often should I be watering this guy? I’ve recently jumped from keeping succulents to now house plants, and I don’t seem to be doing very well with the latter. He is in a window facing south west. I was watering him once a week and his leaves were falling out. Then I tried three times a week, and the tips of his leaves turned brown. Do I change the plant pot? Fertilize? Water less? I’m at a loss. Help! 🌿 @omgkersh is leaving us today for another four weeks. Looks like it’s just you and me, kid. P.S. You’re a pretty fun partner, so I’m kind of ok with that. P.P.S. We decided yesterday to cover up these floors rather than trying to save them. So I will only grace you with their beautiful state for a few weeks longer.
