A Canadian Business I had to share!!

When I found Welo on Instagram awhile back I was instantly drawn to their branding  as it is so bright and fun…I am a sucker for great packing!!!  Once I looked past the fun colors and checked out their products further  I was so impressed with this Canadian owned company. They  have a variety of products but the ones that stood out to me at first were the kids bars that have only 2 grams of sugar  AND probiotics in them. My kids love granola bars and I have tried  to buy healthy ones but honestly 3/4 of the box ends up in the garbage because nobody likes them.  I didn’t even tell me kids what these bars were and each one of them instantly liked them… you can check out my insta story to see  Tucker’s blind taste test reaction. The bars a a total win as they are plant based, low sugar and help support our immune system!!!

Entrepreneurship is in my bones. My Grandfather started a Heavy Equipment business here in Saskatoon over 53 years ago and it is still around today after my Dad and Uncle owned and operated it and now my brother and cousin are carrying on that legacy. Growing up in a family of entrepreneurs I have a a special place in my heart for people that put their heart and soul into their company. Welo is a company owned by 3 young Canadian entrepreneurs Jeff, Steph and katie and It is easy to see how they made it on to  Dragon’s Den. Their pitch is worth the watch for sure!!!  Their mission, hustle and heart are what makes this such a cool brand  “Welo is our way of spreading the word and helping people to move beyond supplements in their search for excellent health.” They have created  healthy products and they give back…. for every product sold supports water, education, or food projects in Kikima, Kenya! I love a great  businesses success story so I had to share .  You can find their products at many places including Superstore and Well.ca but you can also order online.  Use code thismomthing20 and get 20% off your first order !!!

 

Quarantine Portraits

I took these last week on day one of “homeschool” . He wanted to build a lego set. Having my kids at home is truly such a gift although yes at times frustrating as we are settling into a routine. I am thankful my husband is here working from home as well and sharing the load. Truth is we are a family and this is our chance to really bond as a family. Time is the most precious commodity we have and we have all been given more time with our kids now. It is time to be present, soak them in, look at them longer, ask more questions and yes make them do chores!!! We are doing a small version ” homeschool” that is super simple. I find as a former teacher kids are missing out on old school drill and practise in terms of math and reading and there is nothing wrong with bringing it back to the old days of mad minutes and Mr. Mugs phonics:) Also are you not blown away by the amazing online learning resources? The stuff we can all learn online is absolutely amazing!!!
Enjoy this time as you will never have it again!!!

Saskatoon Studio Maternity Session

I wish I could dig up all of the portraits I have taken of Kat and her family as we go way back to her engagement session over 6 years ago now. After that I was able to photograph her wedding farm alongside Matt Ramage. Maternity portraits when the twin twins were snug inside her belly, twin newborn session and on and on… Kat you are my muse!!! From getting married to a soon to be family of five……how blessed am I to document this evolution. Getting to know this family has been so incredible for me as I know as soon as I send these images over Dad will say “oh my goodness she included my hands”!!! He is a farming dad and his hands the day of our session showed the results of his hard work. Those hardworking hands are a part of their family and I had to include them. I hope that these images portray another part of their story that Kat is an INCREDIBLE mother. Not only is she stunning but she is patient , kind and really really loving. Also when I met Kat she was a “farm fiance” just new to the farm lifestyle and now she is a full on farm wife that absolutely rocks it. She has a flower farm called Hidden Haven north of Saskatoon near Waldheim. I cannot wait to watch you guys grow again and welcome your new baby in 7 ish more weeks.

Welcome!

My name is Janna and I currently live in Saskatoon, Sask. I have an in home studio space that I use for shooting newborns, milestones and motherhood sessions.

All in all, I am surviving on coffee and very little sleep but I am happy. I have the privilege to work with absolutely wonderful families who trust me to hold their little bitty babies and honour me with the creation of their memories.  I do feel truly blessed. I would love to meet you and maybe learn a little bit about you and your family!
