This family was so much fun to photograph!
We love how the natural mixture of playful children's shots and romantic couples moments just seem to unfold with this family. So much love for each other!
We spent some time doing a photo shoot with this beautiful family yesterday evening!
The weather was absolutely glorious, and we are loving how the sun's radiance adds such a golden warmth to the photos.
Here are is a sneak peek of a few of the images captured during our
fun time together...
Like most stories, it starts at the beginning...
It's Monday around 8 pm, at the end of the the long weekend in May.
Don and Deb Nicholson, herein known as 'Bapa and Mini', are visiting their son Aaron and his family in the small town of Deep River, Ontario.
It's been a busy but wonderful day together, and Aaron and Amanda are sad to see them go. When the three grandchildren are tucked in for the night, the couple stands on the front porch waving good-bye.
Rich, fudgy, chocolatey brownies that you can feel good about?!
These are a much-requested favourite around the Nicholson household, and, to the surprise of everyone who has tried them (and eaten one more, and asked for the recipe...), they are the best brownies ever! Our kids yell, "BLACK BEAN BROWNIESSSS!" when I pull them out. My husband even prefers them over conventional brownies, which is saying a lot!
The texture of these brownies is so fudgy and chewy, not at all like the way some brownies can disappoint you with their dry, cakey crumb.
And the secret holding them all together? Sneaky black beans!
Sweetened with pure maple syrup and chopped extra dark chocolate, they are a decadent treat that you will want to make over and over again. Try them and judge for yourself!
A little about us
This is not the exotic blog of a cultured world traveler.
This is the blog of a family whose life happens… at home.
We do everything here, and everyone is invited, because we want our home to be the place you can go to be a part of life in all its fullness.
And life in all its fullness means things are in constant motion.
Music happens here, school happens here, tattoos, wedding cakes, DIY roof demolitions, and even joyous births happen here!
At the Nicholson home, life is about creating, and it’s about bringing glory to the Creator.
We are excited to share our artistic journey with you, and hope it brings a smile to your face along the way.
Welcome to our home, to our studio…
