"I used to think anyone doing anything weird was weird. Now I know that it is the people that call others weird that are weird." ~ Paul McCartney

I wasn't always able to embrace my weird. And I've definitely got a good dose of it.

I have a slightly bazaar and very dry sense of humour, with a dash (or 4) of sarcasm. I often prefer spending the entire day with my nose in a book than doing pretty much anything else.  I wear jeans, pretty much 365 days a year, I just don't understand why other kinds of pants are necessary when jeans can do it all...

8 Frames A Week - Last Year Before School - Hamilton Family Photographer

8 Frames A Week - Last Year Before School - Hamilton Family Photographer

I am a photographer, lucky enough to work from home and spend every day with my daughter.

I have been fortunate enough to have left a really great, stable and well paying government job in order to be home with my sweet baby girl and enjoy as much of her first few years as possible and of course I've documented it along the way.

As this summer was starting to come to a close, I started seeing all those sweet posts from other mums getting their little ones ready for the start of the school year and it hit me like a ton of bricks.....

That's going to be Elizabeth (who I constantly refer to as E) next year....she will be starting pre-kindergarden.....

THIS IS OUR LAST YEAR AT HOME TOGETHER FULL TIME.

Our summer was absolutely filled with adventure and fun!

How to Entertain a Toddler - Strawberry Picking at Josmar Acres - Lynden, Ontario

My girl...she is...OBSESSED....with strawberries. She eats them year round...fresh, frozen...it doesn't matter. They are absolutely her favourite thing to eat. She will shove them in her mouth until she can't fit any more...honestly...to the point of choking...she loves them that much. I worry about it sometimes...

In the Garden with Grandma - Photographing Family Memories

Reliving childhood memories. Its one of the surprises bonuses of parenthood. You have a great excuse to play with playdoh, run around laughing and screaming at the park and jump in puddles. Great fun!

And if you are just lucky enough, you get to watch your parents play and share with your little one just like they did with you. 

One of my favourite memories of my mum, is watching her work in the garden. I remember the smell of the dirt and how she would always wipe her gloved hands on her jeans.
