cake smash photography

Before becoming a mother, I don’t think that I knew what cake smashes were. Sure, I had seen babies dive into cakes and cupcakes on their first birthdays. They would get super messy, and everyone would take photos and coo over how cute they looked. I didn’t know that it was an actual thing to have a photography session that solely involved smashing a cake to bits. Now I do, and I find that they are so popular!

There are so many elements involved in a cake smash session.

Over the last month or so, I’ve photographed two very different cake smashes. The first one was actually a donut smash. It was a 30-minute session that included family photos before the smash, and then the smash itself. The second session was quite a contrast. It was an hour long, there was two outfit changes, and the family photos occurred after the cake smash.

Both were quite fun, and again, both babies reacted quite differently to the sweet treats in front of them. I love not knowing how much they will actually smash, and how they will feel about the cake. It’s always so cute to see!

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

sweet creature

Last week I returned to the beach located just a few minutes from our old home. Remy and I used to walk there each day. We spent every morning at this secluded beach, from when she was 3 months old until she was 6 months. Then we moved. Why did we? I nearly forget.

I decided to spend the afternoon there with her and Truman after missing it immensely. It was such a windy day, but was also so hot. It was a nice combination, and both of us loved being back there. We didn’t want to leave.

I’m not a perfect person. I have a hard time dealing with change, and often I don’t give things a fair shot. I probably give up too easily, and I listen too much to what others say. I’m trying to work on all of these things, and am forever trying to better myself. I know that I will never be perfect, but contrary to what some say, I am a genuinely nice person who puts others first. Confused? Yes. Selfish? No. Trying to carve out a nice, simple life? Definitely. Most everyone deserves happiness. I will keep trying until I reach that point where I know I am exactly where I am supposed to be. I feel as if it is just around the corner.

Happy Monday, friends!

the park at golden hour

Earlier this month I met with a family and photographed them in a park near their home. They frolicked outside for about an hour. The two little girls played on the swings and in the sand.

It took a bit of bribing to get them to leave the park and go for a walk in the grass. After a promise of chasing jack rabbits and rolling down the hill was made, they finally left willingly.

It was a hot, spring evening and the sun was starting to go down towards the latter half of our session. I love Golden Hour. It brings out the warm and dark tones, and photographs need very minimal editing. It makes everything seem more romantic.

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

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!
