Learning to Love | The Watt Family

I have such an incredible opportunity to tell the stories of the ones that I love. The ones that inspire me on a daily basis and that truly just make my life better.

Today is no exception.

Lyndsey is fighting a hard fight but her positivity is radiant and no matter what is put in front of her, she faces it with strength and courage.

Last May, I photographed Lyndsey and her family at the beginning of her battle, after a year of treatment they received some unfortunate news. The cancer has spread but she is still fighting hard and won’t let anything stop her. Please check out her blog for a bit more of her story and where her health is at now. A GoFundMe account has been set up for her and her family as well.

It’s a true honour to call you my friend, Lynds.

Much Love,

XOXO

Jayme

What a wonderful week I had last week...not only did I get to spend heaps of great quality time with my two oldest friends (we all met at baseball in 1996) but I also got to photograph them and their beautiful families! Leah-anne holds a HUGE place in my heart. We have a special bond that no one else will ever understand. Not to mention she shares her birthday with my Mom and son! I adore you and your family <3 enjoy.

I find, more often than not, thoughts are hard for me to get out....i'm not sure how I can accurately describe the feelings I had when looking through these photos but I do know that my heart aches (in a very good way) for the amount of love I see through Joy's eyes. After our renewal vows were spoken, we spent the next day with Joy doing some family photos...we gathered egg & apples, picked the most beautiful dahlias from a farm that runs on the honour system, frolicked in the most magical trees (it was seriously straight out of a fairytale), and found a secret forrest in the shape of an abandoned lot (thank you for finding that place ...

I was lucky enough to register Jensen for pre school at the amazing Waldorf inspired Wonderflow School House here in Red Deer. This school is everything I want for my kids, a creative based education & a nurturing, positive environment. This year the school house (which is located in a Heritage Home in downtown Red Deer) needs to raise funds to have a sprinkler system put in place inside the home for fire prevention so we've been doing tons of fundraising to help fund the $15,000 investment. I offered to take photos of the all kids at the school and I couldn't have imagined how happy all these little people would make me :) Each child had ...
