Newfoundland Wedding Photographers | Danielle’s Bridal Shower | Jennifer Dawe Photography
We thought the same, we acted the same, and we laughed at the same silly things. She introduced me to 80′s movies, and quesadillas. We wrote each other notes when we were in separate classes. We chatted on ICQ together while watching Survivor. (Oh god, I just dated us, didn’t I?)
We were each other’s shoulders when boys were stupid, and broke our hearts.
We even got ready for prom together.
We went to the salon together to get our hair done.
I did her makeup. She zipped up my dress.
Danielle was my best friend in high school. That was 10 years ago. Now she’s getting married! The BEST part – I get to be there when she gets ready for her wedding, as her photographer.
This past Sunday, myself and a lovely group of ladies spent our afternoon showering the bride-to-be at the North Bank Lodge in Pippy Park.
In true Danielle fashion, everything was exquisitely decorated. (Martha Stewart, move over!)
All of the decor shown below is handmade!
We had to guess whether the item was describing the bride or the groom by holding up the mustache or tiara. Too funny!
The RIGHT – LEFT game. Pass the parcel, adult style! The bridesmaids told us a confusing story, and we had to pass the gifts in the appropriate direction whenever the words right or left were used. Hilarious! (I found a version of the game here if you want to check it out!)
One of many treats!
I could not be more fortunate to call someone a friend. I can not wait to be there when you walk down the aisle.
SNEAKPEEK! Ethan’s 5th Birthday — Jennifer Dawe Photographer — St John’s, Newfoundland Photographer
Ethan has the BEST birthday parties ever!
Mark Webber is a fantastic magician, he not only made balloon animals for everyone, he put on a spectacular show! The adults enjoyed just as much as the kids did!
Here’s a sneak peek for his mom, because I know she’s itching to see some of what we got that day!
Can’t wait for them to see the rest!

(I wish there were more opportunities throughout the year to snap fireworks. They always turn out impressive.)
Happy Canada Day!
Birthday Boy | Jennifer Dawe Photography | Newfoundland Children’s Photographer
We have never spent much money on gifts or big ticket items – you know how kids get those big expensive toys, and end up playing with the box? We decided a long time ago that we would all be much better off if we spent the money that would normally go towards tons of toys into programs such as soccer, and family activities. He learns more life skills at taekwondo than 50 dinkies can give him.
This is one of my favorite of our family traditions. Every year, I make Nate a birthday shirt, just out of some felt or paint, or markers. He always gets a few small things, but I think he gets more excited about the shirt than he does his gifts.
It’s his special shirt, announcing to the world that he’s the birthday boy. The shirt only cost me $4, the glitter glue, $5.
But when he’s grown, these are going to be invaluable keepsakes.
(By the way, where the heck did 5 years go???)
