Amelia is already 4 days into being 23 months old, but I'm in denial that she turns 2 years old in less than a month! At 22 months old, Amelia is: a sweet-natured girl who is becoming more decisive in her opinions. learning new words every day. 'Mine' seems to... Continue reading

There is something so lovely about photographing a couple who are about to become parents for the first time. The optimism and anticipation. Their hopes and dreams. Their knowledge that their lives are going to be forever changed soon, but for now all they can do is hurry up and... Continue reading

When I saw the sketch templates from Simple Scrapper's February collection, I had an idea immediately come to mind. A cut file purchased from the Silhouette Design Store (and some wrangling to get the file to download) later, I had the basis for a simple and striking layout. To fit... Continue reading

Happy New Year to you and your family! Epic is a wonderful word for it. ;)

Happy New Year to you and Mr Man! I've pretty sure I'll never forget their wedding anniversary. ;) Well done with being so accomplished with your DD! Realistically, I'm probably a few months away. Spending more time scrapping and blogging is definitely a priority for me this year. Looking to have more specific work time and more specific not-work time. Mike and I never started watching Game of Thrones, although certainly made a big splash and much talked about. Maybe we'll get to it one day.

And thankfully the smoke detectors we're too loud. ;)

Currently I am... Recovering from an unforgettable New Year's Eve. Jenna and Darren's wedding was amazing and flower girl Milly couldn't have been more adorable or wonderfully behaved. The wedding is deserving of it's own blog post so for now I'll just paraphrase Mike, they ramped up the difficulty with... Continue reading

December 4: A family gathering to celebrate my brother-in-law's birthday. The journaling talks about how much I love the relationships Milly is developing, especially with her cousins. I used a 6x4 photo that I cut in half to fit into the two 3x4 pockets. The journaling card is from the... Continue reading

It's been a lovely festive season here, but over way too quickly. Christmas Day was full of family and presents and food, while Boxing Day was lovely and quiet at home with just the three of us. Mike was actually working Christmas morning so we held off on exchanging our... Continue reading

Thanks Mary-Lou! And there were toys EVERYWHERE. :)
Thank you very much for our Christmas card! It arrived a few days again and is actually the only one we've received that isn't from a real estate agent or politician. It's a sad year here for Christmas cards (I haven't sent any yet either) but you've definitely brightened the situation. :) New Years' Eve for Jenna's wedding, so the count down is on. She is sending me daily weather updates, with current predictions 29C and 0% chance of rain. Fingers crossed! Miss Milly is already developing into a very strong little personality; don't think I'm eagerly awaiting teenage years. ;)

December 3: Our 5th annual friend's Christmas lunch, held at our house this year. Left side: I didn't think to take a photo of the kids till the end of the afternoon. Definitely not my best idea! Wriggly, squirmy 1 year olds. ;) Right side: The wreath with number of... Continue reading

Her lady ship is right! 'Mine' is her current favored word, meaning 'I want', 'I do' or 'not yours' depending on the moment. Sometimes adorable, sometimes making me want to pull my hair out!

It may be the 19th of December as I write this, and I'm sharing for the first time this month, but December Daily is happening! I considered creating a 5x7 mini album like I did in 2015 (it's one of my favourite December Daily albums) but ended up choosing a... Continue reading

I have become the worst blogger. I didn't mean to, and I don't want to be, but neither change the fact that I have posted a grand total of 18 photos so far this year. 18! In 2015, pre-daughter and photography business, it was more like 400. There are so... Continue reading

This Diamond Creek family weren't so interested in the traditional newborn photos - baby looking all sweet curled up in a wrap - so much as photos of them loving on their baby boy. That's my kind of photo shoot! Families being themselves, relaxing in front of the camera, snuggling... Continue reading

Today my little girl turned 18 months old. As a 'half birthday' we celebrated with half a cake, or 'cake-eee' according to Milly. At 18 months old, Milly: is a delight to Mike and I on a daily basis. speaks over 40 different words, with a new word or two... Continue reading

My sister texted me this photo during an afternoon of Aunty Jenna and Milly time. I ADORE IT. That expression on her little face, looking up... ADORE. Apparently she was 'tickling' Jenna. A sketch template from Simple Scrapper's August membership collection inspired the design. Being a texted copy of a... Continue reading

I think it's probably the 'up' and 'book' requests that most detour my intentions. I can't say no to that little face standing there with a book almost as big a she is, wanting to sit on my knee and read books together. :)

This was an absolute dream of a newborn session and I have trouble narrowing it down to my favourite photos. I've been best friends with Nicole since we were about 8 years old. Chris, this brand new Dad, is her little brother so I've known him since he was even... Continue reading

When even my sister comments that my blog name, And So I Don't Forget, is becoming ironic, it's probably time to do something about it. To break my unintentional blogging hiatus, five things there are more of and five things there are less of in my life post-Milly. More Swinging.... Continue reading

I've known the lovely Miss Mila since she was only 12 weeks old and she has had that impressive head of hair the entire time. That little ponytail is just adorable. Although I have no doubt she can keep her parents on their toes, Mila has an air of calm... Continue reading

In all honesty progress on my December Daily album is somewhat stalled, however I did use a Sketch Template from Simple Scrapper's June membership collection to create this 6x8 layout for Day 14. The patterned paper is all out of a 6x6 set from Elle's Studio. The Premium Membership at... Continue reading
