The Pine Cove Series

We just got home from spending a few days at a cabin overlooking the French River with some wonderful friends. Our pals got married, and they did it surrounded by the most beautiful scenery. I just love the Canadian Shield! It's one of my most favourite places on earth! It was just what we needed after the busiest and craziest month of our lives. May was full of many photo sessions and a lot of births, along with conferences and so much illness, and sadly we lost Julian's Grandma. It was a really hard month. So being in a place like Pine Cove was so good for the soul, even if I went from back to back births before hitting the road! (It was epic! πŸ˜‚) There was no internet or cell reception, so we were shut off from the world. Pure bliss.
Oh, and guess how many times they sang the Moana song in the canoe?! πŸ˜†

Exploring the Canadian Shield while I sneakily photograph her in pockets of light. 

She's been looking at this dress for 3 months and has been so eager to wear it! So here she is! The moment she's been waiting for!! The wedding is about to start! πŸ€—πŸ’•

Samers! Hahaha! I have so many pictures of them where they're unintentionally and obliviously mimicking each other. πŸ˜‚

Playing in the big leagues. And she scores!!!

During wedding speeches, children are incapable of sitting quietly. Instead we left the room so they could do the absolute opposite of what we were begging them to do. Typical. πŸ˜‚ But boy did Adelaide have fun catching up with her pal Fiona! 

Sitting on the dock watching the minnows during the incredible sunset over the French River 😍
...So worth the black fly bites.

Watching a sunset like this every night would be the worst hey?! πŸ˜† Seriously, someone take me back. Pleeeaaase!!! 😍

After the sunset we went running back to the lodge to spark some sparklers and make s'mores!! Oh night light, how I love to play with you!! 😍

Sparklers are pretty magical, especially with a flare!! Ya know, I think it's the uv filter because since putting it on I've noticed more flares in general, but especially in my birth photos using artificial light sources! Bring on the flares!!! ✨

Roasting marshmallows and makin' s'mores! They're pretty much in heaven!

"Hey Audrey, only one more s'more okay?" πŸ˜‚
And just like Audrey wants more s'mores, I want more cabin time!! But all good things must come to an end kid.
