Comments Off on Christmas Family Photos | 2017

This year has no doubt been our fastest year yet. Possibly because of having three kids and also possibly because it was the first year that I freelanced all year long. I feel like our family has gone through so much since last year. We have grown through ups and downs and seen so much change in each of the kids. Ezra started grade three, Sophie is in her second year of preschool and Evelyn hit pretty much every major milestone (walking, talking, all the things). For the past three years we have had Christmas Family photos taken by Fraser Valley Photographer E Fraser Photo. I find it to be such a lasting way to reflect on the year.

This year our photos were postponed due to the rain and rescheduled. However, on our next scheduled date the weather was crazy again but we still decided to go for it. Thankful for our photographer, Erin Fraser, who was totally up for it and recommended the new photo location. As much as I loved the Christmas tree farm photos last year and the year before, I love that these photos can be printed and up all year round without being too “holiday”.

Thank you Erin Fraser Photography for capturing our real life moments. Let’s just say Evelyn was not in the mood for photos, but it didn’t matter. Erin captured some very precious moments and some couples photos that give me all the heart eyes. Thankful for this family of mine and so excited for making memories in 2018.

Last year we took photos like this with Erin and we had to do it again. This year, James is much less visible then last year.. and I think it might also be the last year he’ll be able to hold all three. Might have to try it again next year and see. (Photos from last year)

  • A quick snap before we head out this morning, Sophie jumped in at the last second smiling with alllll her teeth 😍❤️ my shirt .. which is actually a bodysuit is @gentlefawn | hat @gigipip | shorts and cardigan @shophunnis | Hair curled with new wand from @conaircanada
  • May have gone a tad overboard on the swim gear a couple of days ago to get them excited for their swim lessons.

Goal: Can never be too prepared.

Reality: The whale floatie popped in our house the day I bought it, the morning of swim lessons was a rush to get ready, I regretted not findinng and organizing all their swimwear the night before, got breakfast through the drive through on the way over and somehow successfully completed day 1 of swim lessons. The kids were all smiles.... for the most part.
  • I was reading an article recently that said floral is the flavour of the year, thanks to the Royals serving a Lemon Elderflower wedding cake. Hopping right on that elderflower trend for this new recipe by experimenting with my new @sodastreamcanada FIZZI One Touch sparkling water maker.

Here's what I used: • @sodastream Sparkling Water that I created in seconds at home • Sparkling Elderflower
• Peaches
• Rosemary

Check out my latest blog post for the full recipe. 
Fun Tip: Turn any favourite sparkling water recipe by using half as much sparkling water and adding in your wine of choice (doesn't hurt to top it up with more berries either 😉 )

  • On our way to drop this guy off at the airport again. We had five glorious days with him at home and now it's back to single momming it. #deepbreath
  • Picked up this wreath from @eucalyptuspopup today for a video shoot tomorrow (see my last post for what that’s about) and def think wreaths are perfect home decor all year round. What do you think?
  • A good night’s sleep makes a huge difference for how our kids behave throughout the day and how much energy they have to do the things they love!⠀
