Business of the Week


We have a fantastic deal for you this week from Lucy Baum Photography.

Waiving the photography session fee of $125 for any family session booked through West Island Mommies. Claim this offer by emailing Lucy at before midnight on Friday, May 12. Photo shoots can be scheduled between June 1 – November 30 and Lucy will work with your family to find a mutually convenient date.

Lucy Baum Montreal Family Photography specializes in photographing families who are looking for an original and easygoing experience. Offbeat, silly and playful are three words that describe her and her client’s style – and ‘unfussy’ if that’s really a word. When your family is relaxed, Lucy is at her best and strives to capture those connections in a creative and thoughtful way. She’ll do what it takes – she’s ruined shoes in mud to get the right shot and may dust your floors with her shirt while she gets the perfect angle on a headstrong toddler! If this reflects your vibe, Lucy is your fit.

Opt into a custom experience that works for your family. Lucy comes to your home or other memorable location, and works (plays) with you and your children to bring out your authentic and best selves. Warning – you may leave as friends.

Start at and watch Lucy’s behind the scenes promo video, where you can see her in action shooting a family that she met through West Island Mommies, and with whom her family has become great friends. You can also send an email to

Follow Lucy on Facebook at and on her blog at Lucy also teaches photography workshops for women across a range of photographic subjects – including how to take better photos of your kids, and how to get the camera off ‘auto’. More information at

Here are what parents are saying about our business of the week: Jardin D’enfants Le Tournesol.

Voici quelques témoignages de parents dont les enfants fréquentent ou ont fréquenté le Jardin d’enfants

Le Tournesol:

“Émilien (4 ans) adore sa classe, s’est ami(es), les activités, ainsi que son enseignante. Merci pour cette belle expérience enrichissante. Nous sommes plus que satisfait du fonctionnement de cette prématernelle”   Anne B.

“Ma fille a débuté au Jardin le Tournesol cette année et j’ai que de bons mots à dire. Les enseignantes sont extra, ils font de beaux bricolages, la salle de jeux est super propre, plein de jeux éducatifs, ils font des activités stimulantes pour les enfants, ma fille apprend à “écouter” les consignes et respecter les autres amis en groupe. Pour une maman à la maison, c’est un complément parfait pour l’éducation et le développement de mon enfant. Je le recommande sans hésitations!”       Geneviève

“Mon fils a commencé à fréquenter la «grande» école cette année: son passage au Tournesol a grandement facilité la transition vers celle-ci et lui a donné – en douceur – tous les outils nécessaires pour se sentir à l’aise en milieu scolaire. Il a cédé sa place à ma fille qui profite maintenant des beaux locaux du Tournesol et surtout de la compétence des institutrices et qui pourra bénéficier du même bagage que son aîné!”   Anne T.

“Mon fils a été au Tournesol à 3 ans et à 4 ans. Je peux vous dire que la transition à la maternelle cette année à été l’une des plus réussite ! Sans le Tournesol, mon fils aurait eu beaucoup plus de difficultés. Étant une maman au foyer, mon fils était très, très, très attaché à moi. Mais grâce aux enseignantes très qualifiées et leurs dévouement et bénévolat hors paire, mon fils adore l’école ! Un GROS MERCI au Tournesol !”   Peggy

“L’expérience des mes deux filles au Tournesol les a aidées à s’initier tout en douceur à la vie de groupe.Comme elles étaient à la maison avec moi, l’horaire progressif de la prématernelle a constitué une excellente transition vers la maternelle. Par ailleurs, le dynamisme, le positivisme et le professionnalisme des enseignantes ont permis à mes filles de vivre des années formidables au Tournesol! Merci pour tout!”
