Why our dinner tasted so great.

What is so great about my kitchen helper is that she puts so much love into what she is making that tasting good is the only possible outcome. I have lost that love, dinner is something I whip up after rushing home just to get something, anything, edible on the table. Some days it’s good, some days the whole family sighs at the smell, others I stop right in the  middle and we order take away.

But with her helping I can slow down again. I can enjoy the splashing of sauces and the best mid cooking taste tests. IMG_3781 IMG_3769 IMG_3774 IMG_3772 IMG_3765 IMG_3787 IMG_3786 IMG_3788 IMG_3790 IMG_3793 IMG_3795 IMG_3796 IMG_3797

Spring happiness

Spring is FINALLY starting to show its face around here, thank goodness. For anyone who knows me I am a pansy when it come to cold/cool weather, I so badly need light and the warm golden sun. On our adventure we got to  see that the salmon are back and the little wild flowers are blooming… it’s just so fresh, definitely a time of year I look forward to… every fall. If I didn’t have kids I really could just skip winter entirely.  We are lucky enough have a gorgeous green belt as a back yard that leads to a school park that the kids just love. What is even more cool?  My son has a car, a dodge charger that he drives his sister to the park in. To them they are driving, they are in control and seriously cool…. of course! You can hear the giggles, the belly laughter and good times from a mile away. They put smiles on every stranger we pass, and of course they are always reminded how awesome they are. While these images are just some redundant random photos of an 1 1/2  hours of our evening, it’s what my family is all about; Fun. Love. Togetherness. Happiness. Family.

And for those who do not know; I am a Canadian photographer, and if you have never been here this is what spring looks like in Vancouver BC Canada. Hope you enjoy a look into our evening. IMG_8238 IMG_8246IMG_8259IMG_8269IMG_829211 blog collageIMG_8297 copy

My face

Me. I am Mother, a wife and a photographer. I love art and adore photography, it’s my quiet time and my therapy.  I love hard, I always feel it in my heart. I have been told I am somewhat eccentric, I agree. I am shy but outspoken. I am new to being in front of the camera but I need to be, though I am uncomfortable now  I will continue. I am me. I know I am not perfect but that’s okay. My kids are my everything and my worries tell me so. I am a mother.
