A super mom and her girls

12 Oct

This is Jennifer, one of my best friends from childhood.  We both had our first children in 2011 and hope that they will be good pals just like we were! Her oldest is very shy, as apparent in the pictures, and her youngest reminds me of my kids – pretty wacky and spirited.

Jenn is an incredible mom. So very intuitive to her children’s needs, working hard to give them everything she can.  I love this family, and love watching these girls grow up.

Meghan & Benjamin’s Wedding – Preview

20 Aug

Meghan and Ben have quite a lengthy love story that stretches back to their youth, making today a big deal.  A much awaited union, after 9 years of dating, college, getting a dream home, two children, they finally tied the knot.

Now I know Ben is a wonderful guy from what Meghan has said, not to mention the best man’s touching speech.. but I have lots of firsthand experience at how lovely Mrs. Meghan is.  We went through the SSW program at Con College together.  She’s a shining diamond.  A loving mother, caring friend, and kind soul.  Knowing how sweet she is makes me all the more happy to see how happy she is.

Now, join me in screaming over these shots from their wedding


Krista & Jeff

14 Aug

There are countless wedding venues to choose from in Thunder Bay, but it’s nice to see the meaningful places couples pick.  Parents of the bride were happy to share their dream property over 20 years in the making.

Krista and Jeff met in 1st year University here at Lakehead.  They now live in Southern Ontario together.  Many family members came from out of town to celebrate this sweet couple, I hope everyone enjoyed their time at Mink Mountain and hope the weather stayed clear!

Congrats K+J!

A very intimate wedding at Mink Mountain Resort brought in a handful of out of towners to enjoy the sweet celebration on a piece of paradise on the north shore.  Their reception will follow in Winnipeg this fall.

Ice Day!

26 Apr

Blizzards, snowfall, and storms aren’t uncommon for Aprils in Thunder Bay.  City closure due to weather is pretty uncommon as well, but an ice storm has given us a day off school and work today!

The girls and I started our day with peanut butter banana smoothies and yoga. We did lots of playing and painting, planted seeds to start our garden, and just after lunch we decided to go outside.  We smashed tons of ice off the car and other surfaces outside; a surprising inch or so thick in lots of places!


When the wind got to be too much we came in to watch a show but the power went out!

I had an idea to keep us entertained, something I’ve wanted to do since the lightpainting workshop at Neechee: Experimenting with portable light in the studio.  Flashlights, sparklers, strobes, etc.

Now, it’s hard as heck to get the girls be still and follow my directions – they want to do their own posing and follow their ideas, but I let them run the show and still got fun results!


Once in a while a school closure is such a treat – a surprise sleep in annnnnd a day with the kids.  Good attitudes all ’round at this house.

The gang is all together
