My friend Laura is an extremely talented artisan. She is the owner of The Yellow Birdhouse where she makes the most beautiful felt pieces. Wreaths, hair clips, hoop art, headbands, and now more recently, bowties and boutonnieres! She asked if I would take a few pictures of her incredibly handsome sons modelling her newest creations. We also managed to get a family portrait done, as well as a few head shots of her. Thankfully, it was a gorgeous evening at Fisherman’s Cove in Eastern Passage. I just love those cute painted little huts! Continue reading
Ashley and Cody are expecting their little girl at the end of August, and asked me to document them before their newest addition arrives! Ashley is a florist with Blossom Shops, and Cody is a pretty busy guy working a couple of different jobs, but one of them is being part of the start up for Bottleneck cold-brewed coffee! Judging by their laid-back attitude and sweet gigs, I think these two are going to be pretty cool parents! Continue reading
When Dhavita contacted me and told me that she wanted to hire me for her wedding, which also happened to be an elopement, I really had no idea what to expect! I just knew that their “spot” was on a beautiful part of the Lawrencetown beach, and that it would just be them, the Justice of the Peace, and myself. When I showed up at their house, I was so pleasantly surprised not only to find two good-looking people, but also ones who were laid back and easy to talk to. We decided to drive in the same car to the beach, which was awesome because I got to know them a little bit! I definitely got the sense that easy-going was a trend with these two😉
Newborns. I think I am officially obsessed. They are just so smooshy and cute. This is little Jules, just 2-weeks old. I love that they fall asleep. Wherever. And that their skin is so soft and covered in little down. And that their parents love them. And that they can wear whatever and it is the cutest thing in the world. Continue reading
When Cathy contacted me saying that she’d love to have a family photo done before her eldest son headed off to BC for his Master’s degree, I knew that this would be a bittersweet photo session. As soon as I met the Elford family, I could tell they were a tight-knit, and fun-loving crew. Right away dad started cracking jokes, and mom was playfully smacking his arm while the boys are looking rather apologetic. Haha, classic! Continue reading
In May I had the opportunity to photograph this beautiful little family. Ali, Eric and little baby Shea. This session was really wonderful for me. Really! This was pretty exciting because it was my first “newborn” session. Although Shea is a wee bit older than a newborn, he was absolutely as cute as a button. He was sleepy, but then alert and smiling. And mostly, he was just really relaxed and happy for the 2 hours I was there. I mean, what more could a photographer ask for? Continue reading
Our first stop of the day was Crystal Crescent Beach, where I first met Stacey, Nadine and of course, Timber the dog. It was early April, beautiful, sunny….windy and cold. Dreams of getting beautiful beachside photos were quickly squashed! Thankfully, Stacey and Nadine are easy going and flexible and suggested we just take a drive back into Halifax!
