If you’re on Twitter or Instagram, you’ve likely seen the hashtag #TBT. A few years ago, I used to do “Flashback Friday” posts on my blog, but I figured it was time to follow in the steps of the cool-kids, and go with Throwback Thursday now instead!
Here’s my first TBT post… it’s from Fall of 2010. We took both Duders to the pumpkin patch with their Uncle & Auntie. And one of them (I totally can’t remember which one… I still have Mummy-brain, even years later!) took this family photo for us. I can’t believe how little the boys look – this really wasn’t that long ago, but it feels like a lifetime.
It’s no secret that I’m way far behind in blogging… this sweet baby girl is already a year old!
Abbie’s Mommy is Mister’s cousin. Which makes us family-in-law. I think it’s safe to say that good looks run in the family ;) She behaved so well for these portraits. At first, she was a little unsure of me and my camera, but when her Mommy stood directly behind me, I caught some of the most adorable smiles! It wasn’t long before she figured I was a-okay in her books, and she rocked it.
As much as I love a half-naked baby… she’s a doll all dressed up too!
This rocking chair is one of my favorite props! It belonged to me when I was wee, then it was passed on to my cousin, Kylie. And when Deklan was born, she handed it down to him. It has a lot of sentimental value – so using it for family portraits makes it even more special. My apologies to Ericka for the tardiness on this post… but, my dear blog readers, you can expect quite a few catch-up posts in the coming weeks!
When she was born, the medical community at BC Children’s Hospital said she’d be lucky if she saw her 2nd birthday. This past September, she celebrated her Sweet Sixteen. Brooklyn joined our family in 2006, when she moved in with … Continue reading →
I set a goal for myself to enter these contests every week, and I’ve almost failed already! Good grief. Mummyhood to TWO little duders, Wifey to Mister, plus a full-time day job, really doesn’t leave much time for much else. … Continue reading →
We’re sharing our favorite scenic b&w images for this weeks iheartfaces contest. The catch though, is that they still have to have a visible face to be eligible to win. If you’ve seen the movie X2, then this might look familiar to you – my entry is from last months family session at Hatley Castle, which was used in the filming of the X-Men Sequel. I love how Little Miss Independent is strolling away from her family, as they all stand in front of the castle, watching her head my way.

Yesterday was the sneak-peek, today is the full post :)
My brother introduced me to them, and I’ve known this couple for a few years now. Despite the fact that we used to only live a few minutes apart, this was my first time seeing them since they welcomed Audrey, their 8 month old baby girl.
On Saturday, Colleen, Ben & baby Audrey met me at Royal Roads for some fun family portraits. The forecast called for rain, but despite the clouds, it was warm and sunny!
At first Audrey wasn’t too sure about the crazy lady with the black box stuck to her face, but she warmed up to me and I think we got some good stuff.
Ben & Colleen, it was so great to see you again – I’m thrilled to have finally met your adorable little girl! On with the photos…
These are my two favorites from the day:
LOVE that last one… she got right into the posing… such a little model :)
I’m so far beyond being overdue for a post… I can’t believe I’ve neglected my poor blog for so long. Instead of attempting an update, I’m just going to start fresh from today and very proudly introduce the newest (and final) addition to our happy little family…
He was born on July 7th at 8:57pm – 6 days late (proving that, so far, he doesn’t have the Shields’ impatient streak – but that the Dey stubbornness is here to stay) – exactly 2.5yrs after his big brother.
This week’s challenge at iheartfaces is “We Are Family”. The rules state that the photo has to clearly show family… not just kiddos.
Tadpole just spent this past weekend with Grumpy & Granny, so I didn’t have a chance to take a new family photo of my happy little crew. Instead, I’m going to use this one from the family photo shoot I did in early December.
I mentioned it in my original post on these guys, but man, it was COLD day at the Lagoon when we met up. They were all such good sports, despite the wind and chilly temperatures!

Only one more day till Christmas… what better time to share the front of our Dey Family Xmas cards for this year… (I can’t help but smile every time I look at Tadpole’s cute little face… I’m such a proud Mummy!)
