priorities, balance and success | chilliwack wedding and boudoir photography | kerensa leigh

how does one maintain balance while trying to be great at everything? if you are reading this and expecting the answer please don’t be disappointed as i’m still searching for the answer. there are some hours where i think i might not be behind the 8 ball. and then i look in the kitchen and see dirty dishes where there once was only bare counter.
having 3 fiesty boys i have resigned myself to the fact that it is my lot in life to be a cleaner, picker upper of toys and tossed sippy cups. maker of grilled cheese and mac n cheese. enforcer of fair play and warden of nap times. lunch packer and chauffeur. and this is only my mommy jobs…

trying to maintain a successful and loving marriage is no simple task. having a simple conversation while the kids are awake is less than simple…i think we usually can get a few sentences out before someone is asking for a drink, or just seeking our attention so we rely on the family calendar to ensure we know each others schedules. quite honestly once the kids are asleep we are both mentally exhausted that we usually end up on the couch beside one another watching separate shows (me on the tv and adam on the ipad) hey it’s still quality time when we are in the same room, right? thankfully our care group is focusing on how to have a successful relationship and after 10 years i know without a doubt there’s no one else i’d rather be married to and its a fun challenge to make it even better:)

running a home business is not without its own challenges. i’ll be the first to admit that the business and marketing side is not my strong suit. i have lots of ideas rolling around in my head and in various note books but putting them into action is the hardest part. i’m a procrastinator by nature and i’m very good at finding things i’d rather do other than work on SEO.

so here i am editing a boudoir session, watching olympics, checking facebook and looking at bridesmaid dresses for my sister-in-laws upcoming wedding while also waiting for the washer to finish so i can switch it to the dryer…all in a days work:)

if anyone has any idea’s on how to maintain a healthy balance between work, life and fun please leave me a note:)

brad and rae | langley maternity | kerensa leigh

i find myself not knowing where to start on this post…
rae and i met 10 years ago at the gateway clinic where we both worked. we had gone to the same high school so i knew who she was but as i am older we never hung out. we instantly got along and she became my “person” and vice versa (grey’s anatomy term)
she was my shoulder to cry on when we were having trouble getting pregnant. i was her shoulder through her journey to become a dr. (which she is super close to being already…)
when she told me about brad…a cute guy from her english class…i was super pumped and kinda made her go on a date with him. i stood by her side 5 years ago when they got married!
when they made the very difficult decision to start a family in the midst of medical school i was very excited because i know they will be such caring and fun parents:)
for their maternity session we went to derby reach in fort langley. it was a day filled with heavy fog, hand holding and belly rubs! i absolutely love me some foggy misty photo shoots! there is just something mysterious about them and it evokes a sad and happy heart at the same time:)
i am so excited to meet this little man and get in some new baby snuggles again

Van der spek | chilliwack family photography | kerensa leigh

this was a beautiful big family! ernie and mary now have 19 grandkids!! i can only imagine what thanksgiving and Christmas are like when they all get together:)we only have 7 in our family and it’s craziness when we all get under one roof!

we went to hougan park in abbotsford and the willows were so stunning with the sun shining through their leaves. they brought a bunch of hay bales which added a great rustic feel.
