Last weekend, we headed over to the island for Easter to spend time with Ryan's mom. I always say that I'm going to document one of these long weekends we head over and this time I decided to do just that. I'm also trying to use my actual camera a bit more with my own boys instead of just my phone so I'm happy I decided to bring it along. A bit of a random assortment of photos but here are a few of my favorites - even one of me to prove I was in fact there ;)!
We welcomed our newest little guy, Liam, into the world several weeks ago (has it already been almost a month!?) and I thought I would share some photos of him here. He's so perfectly squishy and adorable and although sleep is in hot demand around here (he is one hungry little guy!), knowing how quickly this season passes, I'm trying to savor every moment of him. The savoring is better on some days than others, but there is something about your 2nd baby and knowing just how fast it does all pass. Admittedly, I haven't taken a whole lot of photos of him with my big camera, but I do document our daily life via my phone & instagram (you can follow me if you'd like on instagram here or search for @justineboulin). It's been fun to look back on the photos from this past month, and I think I may do a separate blog post for that in a few days because they are some of my favorites of our day to day.
But for now, a few of Liam from the other day when I had a bit of extra time to take some with my big camera -
the last week or so with just this boy so have been trying to capture a few everyday things here and there before baby #2 arrives. A few out of focus, a bit grainy.. but they are perfect regardless. My boy waking up from his nap.
Every month I join a pretty fantastic group of photographers for a 10 on 10 post - 10ish photos on the 10th of each month. I may have broken the rules this month and posted 14..opps.. but who's counting, right!? Thank you to everyone who arrived here from Jen Downer at She Saw Things Photography.

And now for my April 10 on 10 edition - Wreck beach is Vancouver's nude beach. Fortunately, this time of year there aren't too many enthusiasts out enjoying the chilly, although sunny, weather! We did a bit of exploring, drove cars in the sand and on the logs, and climbed up and down the longest set of stairs ever to get there and back - and of course I took a few photos along the way. We were also able to enjoy a few cherry blossom trees in the area before heading home. It was such a beautiful day and although still a bit chilly, spring is here!
And now please continue on the blog circle and head on over to Kirstin Hallak to check our her monthly edition of 10 on 10.
There's something about the fog that is so magical that I just love. Whenever we wake up in the morning and I see a heavy fog cloud outside I can't help myself but want to head out and explore.. and bring my camera along. I did another fog post a few weeks back and I doubt this will be my last. And if there's a family or couple out there who also thinks the fog is pretty fun, I'd love to meet you and take your photos.. just saying! *also don't forget that I'm still holding my wedding package giveaway contest. If you're getting married next year, you'll want to head here to check it out and enter* Here's a few from our morning.
This past weekend we visited Nana's. One of the boys favorite things to do while there is to head next door to the neighbors farm to explore around. Horses, pigs, chickens, baby ducks..so much to see and do - what little boy wouldn't love it! Her neighbors are really great at letting us come over to look around and visit all the animals, even letting him run around the apple orchard where the chickens are kept. One of the morning's we were there I took my camera along and took a few pictures. Some of my favorites -
