I’m packing up our things for our move out of our first home and I’m filled with many mixed emotions as I look through these images from our last Christmas in this house. It’s the house we brought both our babies home to… the house we poured love into, tweaking and making it just right for us, until it wasn’t. I will share more on all those details later, when I can. But for now I just want to look through these images as my baby naps, and enjoy this still yet warm cup of coffee. Enjoy a break with me and take a peek!

Instead of the usual blog post, I want to instead share some memorable highlights from Jenelle & Marco’s beautiful wedding, from my point of view in this order. In the excitement and rush of a wedding day sometimes certain moments stand out and make you pause. These were just a few.

  • Jenelle contagious happiness, photogenic smile, and laughter that could light up a room. Those that know her would nod in agreement.
  • Marco’s true and deep adoration for his stunning bride ( I love it when I can see a groom smitten and totally in love with his bride. #perksofmyjob! Scroll through to see the first time groom seen his bride <3 the look says it all.
  • The way the father-of-the-bride looked at his daughter as he walked her down the aisle. Ugh! So precious!
  • The most adorable flower girls.
  • Brides gorgeous lace trimmed veil and glamours gold sequins bridesmaid’s dresses.
  • The truly talented and amazing band One Man Out , that puts on some of the best live music and introduced me to this song I can’t stop listening to now. It’s even better in person performed live by them. Look it up it will give your Monday a kick in the pants.
  • Groom used to bartend at the Caboto Club (where the reception was held) at the end of the night the groom and groomsmen were found behind the bar and juggling glasses like pros and mixed drinks for their guest.
  • Sneaking out at sunset with the bride and groom and having to get super creative blocking out the massive road construction happening in front of the venue. See if you can tell?
  • Feeling blessed to have connected with yet another amazing couple and willing to trust me fully to capture their day.
  • Lastly (not proud of this one) feeling extremely jealous of their European Honeymoon. (Italy and Greece are definitely on the bucket list) I have been stalking their travels through their Instagram feed since they left.

I know I say this a lot. But it’s true! I am so lucky to meet and work with simply the most amazing people. Jennifer and Dain are no exceptions to this. This day was filled with a spirit of joy, laughter, and tears and just everything that makes for a great wedding day. I often tell my brides how the day I spend with them just fly by. I always remember leaving the house in the morning, kissing my sleeping babies goodbye, triple checking my camera gear bag one more time, then driving the quiet drive to the bride’s getting ready location, anticipating the day.  Weddings are a whirlwind of many emotions and moments waiting to be captured. Just like that… we are watching the sunset together on their wedding day as I sneak the newly married couple away from their reception to capture the final moments of daylight and more importantly to help them process if not fully, the magnitude of the life journey they have just embarked on together.

Hello – If you have found yourself here on this little place online. Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to read this as “time” in the day and age we live is one of our most precious gifts. Because I value your time and willingness to read this I will make it short and sweet. Read below:

On the 3 year anniversary of my mother’s passing at the young age of 46 (due to cancer) we will host a Cancer Benefit in her honour and all the mothers or those affected by the cruel disease that is cancer. Our mission is simple. To unite as community and come together to raise money to help support a family, a mother of five children (ages 4 to 16) in the community as she battles her way through cancer. This story was brought to my attention by another local mom, after she came across the mother selling homemade jams and preserves out of her car in a local hardware store parking lot, while undergoing chemotherapy treatment. Talk about strength, resiliency, talk about fight. This is the kind of strength a mother has. When everything goes wrong yet we still show up to fight. We do it for our families. We do it for our children. We do it because we have no other CHOICE. So I ask that you take a moment to see if any of these events are of interest to you or might know someone who is. We have a Photoshoot mini session day scheduled with me on Sunday, October 15th, 2017. Hosted by another two special ladies in the community we have a Ladies League Volleyball tournament on Oct 28th, 2017 at UMEI Highschool  and also that day,  last but definitely not least (because come on who doesn’t love cookies, pies, and homemade buns) we will simultaneously run a bake sale at UMEI Highschool. So please share this with one and all, and we hope to see you there!
