Justin & his watermelon…

Ohhhhh Justin.  He’s pretty much a great, compassionate, and passionate guy all-around.  But there’s something you need to know about him.  He has a dark side when it comes to his favorite foods.  He does NOT like to share.  Most people would think that I’d be the non-sharer-of-foods but it’s actually untrue, Justin is the culprit.  Over the years, I’ve learned a few things:

1. to divide up “treats” that we buy while grocery shopping or my mouth will never see its existence.  (2 for you, 2 for me… I KNOW, it’s pathetic!)

2. if he’s given chocolates or cookies at work for “the two of us”… I probably won’t find out about it until that kind person asks me “how’d you like my cookies?”.  Then I usually have to lie to cover up his cookie-eating-eagerness.  (you’ll be glad to know that his coworkers now require him to bring some home for me… it’s a big joke!)

3. don’t mess around with HIS watermelon. If there’s any fruit that he loves more than grapes, it’s watermelon.  We bought one the other day and he ate at least 3 quarters of it.  Last night I told him that I wanted to eat the last bit so this morning before leaving for work, he kindly reminded me “Mel I hope you will eat that watermelon today…” NO PRESSURE!!!!! ha!

In his defense… I don’t always share.  I like to, most of the time, but when it comes to my “chocolate eruption” or “chocolate explosion” cake obsession, I absolutely hate sharing!  And for your information you can find this deliciousness at William’s or Boston Pizza :)

IN OTHER NEWS, our “little” watermelon is still growing, even at 39 weeks!  Yikes… how big is this boy gonna be?!  Here’s a photo of me taken by Justin a few weeks ago!

If you’ve been wondering where all the photos are, well… I’ve been taking a break until our boy is born.  Then you can expect to see a lot more of him until I start my weddings in July :)  Also, we’ve been busy with our new branding… SOON our new BLOGSITE will be up and running.  We can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on!

Guelph Maternity Photography | Alicia, Dylan & Ellie

I have a friend, her name is Alicia.  She has a beautiful family and is expecting again (another girl!!).  She wanted to have some photos done this time around, since she hadn’t had the chance last time in her pregnancy with Ellie.  Sooooo, of course I was up for a lovely shoot.  We definitely caught some amazing glowing moments of Alicia… as well as some beautiful family shots!  And obviously we had to give little Miss Ellie her time to shine too!  She’s such a sweetie with a personality as big as the sun!

Thanks Alicia & Dylan for trusting me with some important family memories!

They were so brave for bracing the COLD!

Ellie didn’t mind the weather so much, she was having a blast!

Alicia and her gorgeous preggo self!


LOVE this series of shots!



Enough of Mom… now it’s Ellie’s turn :)  She’s a princess with her “real princess crown”

Look at these three… can’t wait to meet the fourth!


Ellie made us laugh with her lovely dance moves!


My favourite of the day.  Hands down.
After some hot chocolate, we headed to the studio for a few more shots.  Thanks to Ellie for helping me test my lights :)

beautiful moment

Many blessings in the final stretch of this pregnancy!!  Can’t wait to meet Aralyn :) xox
