My heart is full... Christkindl market (the German Christmas market) in Kitchener with the husband and littles. For years I wanted to go and I‘m so happy it worked out this year. Felt almost like the ones at home!! I finally caved and had my first ever (ridiculously expensive) Canadian soft Pretzel 🥨. Tasted just like the ones in Germany (where they are 80 cents a piece and I remember a time when they were 50 cents).
It even snowed while we leisurely strolled the market ❄️❄️❄️ Doesn’t get much better than that. But to top it off I even found some more German Christmas treats 😍😋 .

More German Advent Traditions...

Last night we each put a shoe by the front door for St. Nikolaus to fill up. (Someone wanted to put out two shoes…) We also had refreshments for St. Nikolaus - some of our freshly baked cookies and a glass of milk. And, of course, the little note from the kids had to have a special place as well. Then we went to bed. -
And lo and behold!! This morning there was a little something in each of our shoes :) .

On our agenda today: baking cookies for St. Nikolaus with my little helper :) Vienna loves being in the kitchen with me (and I love her company). She was a bit apprehensive when I told her that St. Nikolaus might come by tonight. She didn’t want him to enter the house (and to deter him from coming she wanted to eat all of his cookies :) (Note: The selfie was taken with my iPhone (reverse mode) hence the poor quality. I wanted to keep my DSLR safe from my sticky cookie dough fingers. This goes to show that cell-phone photos cannot replace photos of good quality camera. Yet, the best camera is the one you have in your hands, and I’m thankful I was able to capture this moment.) .

I LOVE to dress up, so naturally, I get excited when Halloween comes around - and it doesn't rain that evening... Oh, and did I mention candy? 
My top priorities for picking a costume 1. Comfort 2. Needs to be warm, haha!! Oh, and another must have: a wig!! Can you guess who I am today??
Happy Friday, Instagram friends!! Who’s excited for the weekend? I am!! I am also excited to share a few of my fav photos from Lindsey and Johnathan's maternity session from September!! They are such a sweet couple, and it was so much fun photographing them to preserve these precious memories of Lindsey with her beautiful baby bump 😊

Take a peek (swipe left), enjoy, and let me know which one you like the best 😊 .

I was convinced I had tossed our cake topper. Two weeks after our wedding I had to go back to Germany to finish my master’s degree. Aaron followed me a month later. Since we’d both be out of the country for a while, it seemed practical to toss anything that would just sit on a shelf and collect dust. Like a cake topper. Fast forward a few years, and I had some (mostly sentimental) regrets about having parted with that cake topper. Then to my delight one day a few months ago my MIL brought it over. 
This lovely couple dancing in the grass marks our 5 year wedding anniversary today. It’s been a wonderful 5 years filled with many changes - moving continents, buying our first home, becoming parents, some career changes. I like to believe that through it all we grew closer together. 
Our marriage verse is Mt. 7:24+25 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.” I pray that our house - our marriage - would continue to be build on a solid foundation. So that we will withstand the storms life inevitably throws at us - TOGETHER. Life is easier together. I’m blessed to call my husband my confidante, my best friend, my soulmate, the one I share the deepest depths of my heart with. That’s why I wouldn’t know what to do without him. He’s a part of me, and I love him. This is not to say that our marriage is easy. It is hard work. We’re both very busy, we have two little ones, and finding quality time for each other can be incredibly challenging. So to celebrate our 5 year anniversary we have decided to go on a vacation - just Aaron and I. No kids. We haven’t done that ever. But we’re thrilled at the chance to spend quality time together, relax, have fun, and to just be Aaron and Svenja again for a little while :) Here’s to the next 5 years of marriage. Actually, I want more than 5. I’m greedy that way. I want forever with you, babe!! PS: The lovely dancing couple is currently collecting dust on top of our fridge.

It's Monday and I'm still dreaming about Saturday's gorgeous wedding!! @adaleah13 and @nlorantfy's big day was perfect. We (and by that I mean us girls) were running a bit late getting to the ceremony but turns out that being late can have advantages. Had we been on time we would have gotten caught in the rain. Instead, we had plenty of sunshine with a few fluffy white clouds - a photographer’s dream!! Here’s to being late 😉 🥂
Swipe to enjoy some wedding day impressions: an iPhone shot of the stunning bride and myself (photocredit: @sab_joy), a photo of the happy couple's first dance, a shot of us girls with the bride (photocredit: Angelo) in our stunning gowns by @misshayleypaige #hayleypaigeoccassions #georgiegown, a #bridesquad selfie (photocredit: @miranda3491) and a BTS photo of our photographer Reid Lambshead of @whenhefoundher setting up the shot for the gowns. 
Can't wait to see all the beautiful moments he has captured of this grand day.
