He’s a problem solver. The day was hot. He was nervous. The moment approached when he would seal his vows by placing the perfectly chosen ring on her finger. He started to slide the ring. Was it the heat, or the nerves? He couldn’t get the ring all the way on. Without panic he did the first thing that came to his mind. He licked her finger. It did the trick.

Women of Distinction Awards

Today is the YWCA Women of Distinction Awards here in Saskatoon. I have the pleasure of being their official photographer for this prestigious event. I have been with these nominees from just days after they have been notified that they were finalists, through to their Nominee Gala and now today. Some not even knowing that their names were put forward. They were in shock when I took their initial portrait, telling me that they had no idea about any of this. All such humble women. I am in awe of what they are all doing for our community. It was incredible to hear about all their selfless hard work and passion that lead them here. They are all true inspirations and I am very excited to see what this evening brings.

mothers_day

 

She held you so tight when you were brought home from the hospital. Not knowing what to expect, she would just stare at you for hours. Watching every little breath. That was the moment you made her a Mom. Through years of tears, hugs, laughter and smiles she raised you to be the best version of yourself.

When I started looking for an image for this post I realized that I photograph more mothers than I thought. I don’t specialize in family portraits, but these incredible women are included in everything that I do.

Until I became a Mom myself I didn’t realize how selfless this job really was. I know, that sounds odd, but really it’s true. I want to say to all the Mom’s that I know personally, have photographed or met at an event: I see you. I see the tireless ways you get your little ones to sleep at a wedding reception while the music is too loud, I see you chasing your children in the lobby of the church while the couple says their vows, I see you dishing up your kid’s plates with food before your own, I see you running the whole household after a week of no sleep and most of all I see you when you are exhausted and just need a break. You put their needs in front of yours, and I see you. Though the sleepy ‘I love you’s and sticky kisses are always the best reward know that there are other Mothers who see you too and we all think you are doing a damn fine job. Celebrate you today. Even if it is just by not cleaning up the toys after the little ones have gone to bed. You are enough and you are rocking this Mom thing.

Their reception was held in her parents garage. Back home, on the farm. Just one of the many meaningful touches of their day. They spent many weekends cleaning and painting. Getting it just right for the wedding day. They borrowed a few tables and chairs to set up the space ‘family style’, creating long rows where their guests could mingle and toast the couple. Her dad crafted a screen to keep the bugs out so they could have the big garage door open and let in that beautiful sunlight that you get on June evenings. Their neighbours catered and the wine flowed. I had never been in a more perfect venue. They had their first dance outside on the gravel drive way, underneath the trees she had loved since she was a child. We left them in good company, laughing the evening away.
