She never quite leaves her children at home, even when she doesn't take them along. ~Margaret Culkin Banning

The other day I was getting together with my sister and an old friend from highschool. It was raining, cold and yucky outside. You know, usual January weather in Canada. Instead of walking to my sister's place, which is less than 10 minutes, I decided to drive. It was much easier to pack the 3 children (3 and under) into the van, then walk in that weather. When I arrived, my old friend and mother of a 21 month old said, "You are amazing!" My immediate response was "oh no...it's nothing. I'm not amazing". But right then and there I decided I was amazing. I am amazing. I will always be amazing. For getting 3 children out the door, for staying at home with them while running my business and my house, and for doing it with style. Even if that style means spit up on my shoulder, or syrup in my hair. Thank you Sam for recognizing me and all the moms out there for doing what we do everyday. It is AMAZING!

Here's a few cute photos of my amazing kids.

Here's an article I came across, which I found amusing and truthful!

"If you're happy, if you're feeling good, then nothing else matters" ~Robin Wright Penn

Dear Erin,

It was so nice to meet you and your family yesterday at our portrait session for your new baby. Thank you for inviting me into your home. I can't tell you enough how excited I was. It felt amazing to get back to photography. I took almost 4 months off to prepare and welcome my son, Charlie and I didn't realize how much I missed my work. I was a bit nervous to get back at it, since Charlie is still so young, but I couldn't pass up an infant shoot. I love my 3 kids, but I didn't realize how much it was wearing on me. Thanks to you I feel wonderful, amazing and rejuvenated. I love photography! I love my work! I love my clients!

I hope you and your family had as much fun as I did. Please enjoy a few of my favourite images!

Many thanks,
