This engagement was much anticipated… :) I’ve worked with Nicole for several years now, and since I first met her, she’s gushed about Rob and their relationship – the two of them couldn’t be a better match! I’ll never forget that Monday morning when she showed up at the office with a perma-smile and a mega-watt sparkling ring, we were all SO so excited for them!! We lucked out with a beautiful – and super chilly – day for their engagement photos at Douglas Taylor Park in Abbotsford – they came with some awesome ideas and were game for anything and everything (even the fact that I kept shooting and shooting long after I said we’d be done… we went right until the sun went down, haha!). I had the best time with these two and look so forward to their wedding at the end of May!! Can’t wait guys! Enjoy :)

Honey Garlic Crock Pot Chicken, Tanis Katie Photography, Healthy Dinners

Crock Pot meals are the BEST! So easy… cooks all day – while you’re at work… running errands… out of the house, whatever –  you don’t have to worry about a thing! Plus, the house smells DELICIOUS all day long :)

Honey Garlic Crock Pot Chicken, over Quinoa

Servings: I’d say it would serve about 4 adults

Ingredients:

  • 4 frozen chicken breasts (could use fresh, too!)
  • 1/2 cup unpasteurized honey
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2-3 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 of a larger onion, diced 
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

–> Mix all the above and pour over the 4 chicken breasts in the crockpot. Make sure all chicken is covered. Cook on LOW for 5 hours.
–> Serve over cooked quinoa (or rice if you prefer!)
–> Top with sliced scallions for garnish

ENJOY!!

I can’t believe I haven’t posted these yet! My sister and brother-in-law welcomed sweet baby Lennon Marie into this world on Sept 11, 2014… she’s precious and beautiful and perfect! I’m a proud Auntie :) Life is so fun with Lennon a part of it! But let’s time travel about 7 months back… to this photoshoot when we were all waiting to find out who would be joining their family of two… Corina was glowing during her entire pregnancy and even more so now as we watch her as a beautiful, loving, wonderful mom :) I love being able to photograph these guys and be a part of this special moment in their lives! ENJOY :)

“…and she loved a little boy very, very much – even more than she loved herself.”

- The Giving Tree, by Shel Silverstein

The special bond between these two is so amazing… they’re not just mother & son, they’re best friends. It’s a highlight of my year when we do their annual photos around Brock’s birthday (you may remember them from Brock’s 2 year and 3 year photos!)… always so wonderful to catch up with Jenny, and to see how much Brock has grown! And to watch these two together, well … it’s just the sweetest thing :)
