Well, yesterday marked my 38th trip around the sun. Upon reflection, I decided I am one very lucky gal so it was time to pay it forward and share some love. That means I will be giving the gift of capturing the precious memories of YOUR life. One *free* lifestyle photography session with moi is up for grabs. All you have to do to play along is “like” my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/CherishBryckPhotography) AND share this post with all you friends. Easy peasy. It’s time for you to win! Contest is open until end of day on July 28th. Happy sharing, my friends!

July 18, 2013 Glamour Girls.
My camera couldn’t get enough of this beautiful mama and baby girl. Asha Hayer pulled out her creative design talents to create a ‘glamour theme’ for this session. As an owner of a luxe wedding and event decor company she knew how to bring all the pieces together to create a styled shoot. We all had so much fun and baby Aria revelled in being the star of the show! Something tells me she better get used to it:)

We spent last week on my aunt and uncles farm in Saskatchewan. It’s become an annual trip for my girls and I to visit the farm and get my little urbanites a feel for country life. Every year, I love it more. The prairies sink further and deeper into my bones during these trips. Growing up I never appreciated the beauty of the vastness or the alluring simplicity of rural life.
This particular day was abundant, full of the simple pleasures of life on the farm; visiting with family, running free, bonfires and more. By the end of each day we all had a new layer of dust on us, two more mosquito bites, more good stories, hugs, smiles and lots of memoires to keep us going until this time and place next year.
Head on over to see what Annie Otzen‘s day looked like…

July 5, 2013 Love wins.
I am lucky. I may not have any siblings of my own, but I have two fabulous “brothers”. My brother-in-law married his love of 26 years last weekend and we were all there to celebrate this joyful event. I couldn’t be any happier to watch their love story unfold.
To love is not to possess, to own or imprison.
Nor to lose one’s self in another.
Love is to join and separate – to walk alone and together
To find a laughing freedom that lonely isolation does not permit.
It is finally to be able to be who we really are
No longer clinging in childish dependency, nor docilely living separate lives in silence.
It is to be perfectly one’s self and perfectly joined in permanent commitment to another and to one’s inner self.
Love only endures when it moves like waves, receding and returning gently or passionately, or moving lovingly like the tide in the moon’s own predictable harmony.
Because finally, despite a child’s scars or an adult’s deepest wounds, they are openly free to be who they really are – and always secretly were.
In the very core of their being, where true and lasting love can alone abide.

Life is short. Find love and hold on to it.
June 19, 2013 If you go into the woods today…
When you get an invitation to a Teddy Bear Picnic at the beach, you pack up your favourite stuffy and hit the road. That’s just what we did. This little shindig had it all, a bear first aid station, bear treats, balloons, bear crowns and more.
Seeing these girls play and frolic made me wish I wish four years old all over again. The imagination and freedom they possess is intoxicating. I wish I could bottle it and give it to them later in life when it has been squeezed out of them by peer pressure and life’s harder lessons. Raising strong, resilient and smart girls is no easy task in today’s world and is a topic that swirls in and out of my head all the time.
Thanks Ang for making such a memorable event.

I love being a part of this project. It makes me stop and look around at my day, capturing the domestic in a new way. This ’10 on 10′ fell on a rather usual day. Lazy, hazy and just the right kind of pace for a Sunday.
Now hop across the pond and over to enjoy Xanthe’s slice of life…
