Sharing motherhood

The best part about my work is the people that I have met along the way and Christine is one of my “clients” I now consider a friend. I met her about 2 years ago when she came to me for a motherhood session with her first born and we just clicked right away. From that point on we have connected over having babies, motherhood and our lululemon staple mom uniform! To be invited in to take pictures of life’s BIGGEST moments is something that means so much to me. Thank you Christine for choosing me and sharing your motherhood journey with me:) Now back to our regular communication….Instagram DM’s!!!

Top 3 Reasons to Book a Grandparent Session Today!

I am not sure why this post even needs such a title but here we go … 3 reasons why you should book a grandparent session.

 

1. To document your family legacy

I love to help others create generational value with portraits of their family. I personally have very very few images of myself and my grandparents together. What I wouldn’t give to have more of those images today….. but I have no remaining grandparents. If I close my eyes I can picture my grandma’s hands to this day however I have no physical pictures of her hands. I remember the age spots on my Grandpa’s hands they were so distinctive and now when I look at my father’s hands I see the same spots. These pictures allow us to compare how we physically resemble other family members and as the family grows the similarities sometimes dissolve or grow stronger. Adding grandparents to your family photography experience is simply a must we should not deny the future generations.

2. Tomorrow is never promised

I feel like I cannot even type these words as the thought of loosing my parents brings me to my knees but I have no ability to stop the days from coming…  or going. There is no better time than now. Now is the time to document that amazing bond that cannot beat time.

3. It is a timeless gift for those that do not need more.

We live in a day and age where we have everything we need and more literally. If we want something we pick up our phones and Amazon has it at our doorstep in a day. We do not need more “stuff” . We don’t need anymore coffee mugs or gadgets, we need time. These sessions are about freezing time for a moment and saving these memories for your kids to have when the day arrives that their most loves ones can no longer hold or hug them! We also live in a world where grandparents are more involved than ever with helping us raise or kids  so this is such a great way to give back and  say thank you , your cherished .. we love you!!!

I am hosting 2 grandparent mini sessions dates on April 4th and 26th here in Saskatoon. BOOK HERE today:)

 

Best Low Carb ( ish) Cookies

Ok Ok I didn’t actually make these myself BUT my husband did and that counts!!!! If you know me you know I am not a fan of the kitchen and I for sure cannot bake BUT I am really good at buying ingredients for things I hope to make…. one day. I had been hoarding almond flour for awhile now so it was time to try and make something with it and low and be hold Kim put these cookies together and they were REALLY good so I am sharing the recipe with you.

Ingredients:
1/4 cup of Brown sugar but we used “>Erythritol

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

2 tbsp of butter at room temp.

1 tsp of “>apple cider vinegar

2 tsp of vanilla extract ( optional)

1 large egg

2 cups of “>almond flour
1/2 cup of low sugar “>chocolate chips

 

 

If your into Instructions…. I am more of a toss it all in and mix kinda person BUT my husband followed the directions so:

-Preheat the oven to 375°F. line two baking sheets with “>parchment paper because who has time for greasing!!

-In a large bowl, combine the sugars, butter, salt, vanilla and almond extracts, vinegar, and baking soda, beating until smooth and creamy.

-Beat in the egg, again beating until smooth. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl with a spatula to make sure everything is thoroughly combined.

– Mix in the flour, then the chips.

– Use a spoon (or a tablespoon cookie scoop) to scoop 1 1/4″ balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving 2″ between them on all sides; they’ll spread.

– Bake the cookies for 11 to 12 minutes, until their edges are brown and their tops are light golden brown….. get them out before they burn essentially!!!

I don’t actually know the carb content of these cookies but since we used almond flour and Erythritol I am counting them as low carb…. I am not a details person as you can tell:)

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!
