Lindsay & Steven |Family | Halifax Family Photographer

It was a cool crisp, fall day when I met Lindsay & Steven with their two beautiful children at Point Pleasant Park. The nice thing about photography sessions including older kids is that, usually, it doesn’t take much to grab that perfect picture for the Christmas card. Actually, one of the most fun parts is getting a genuine smile out of them, which includes some leg work from mom and dad. However, a special treat is when big brother helps along too!

Erin & Kris with her boys are a great family. I first met the twins when they were babies, and I’ve really enjoyed seeing them again each year. It means a lot to me as a photographer to have returning families. It’s really nice seeing the kids get older, not to mention getting to know mom and dad each year. It makes our sessions fun and laid back! We spent some time feeding ducks and walking around at Shubie Park.

This session with baby Naya and her mom and dad is proof that you don’t always need a stellar photography location to capture precious moments. I met with them in their two bedroom apartment in November, when it was far too cold to do an outdoor location. Most important things: good light and good subjects!

Laura & Andrew | Family | Halifax Family Photographer

I had a great time during this extended-family session! Laura initially contacted me, to say that she had some family visiting from all over Canada. Originally, we wanted to take some pictures by the ocean, but a sharp wind made that nearly impossible. So we headed to a sheltered section on the Salt Marsh Trail. I just loved the way the golden light filtered through the trees.

Kate & Nick |Wedding | Halifax Wedding Photographer

Kate and Nick got married on one of the most beautiful, hot, sunny, August days last summer. But, what a blast! Both of them were laid back and fun. Not to mention their wedding parties. So many laughs!

I loved seeing all of their friends and family gathering to celebrate their big Catholic wedding at Saint Benedict’s. It was so obvious how genuinely happy everyone was that Nick and Kate were getting married!

One of the most memorable parts was the choreographed singing/dance number during the reception. Kate is big into theatre, and it was just so perfect that they came together to entertain their guests with their wonderful talent.

So happy for these two. What a beautiful day!

Meet Amelia, the gorgeous addition to Amber and Malcolm’s family. I really love her name. I am a sucker for those old-fashioned classics! Big brother Kendan was so sweet. Everyone clearly loves this sweet little one!

Darcie & Myah | newborn | Halifax Newborn Photographer

I had a really sweet in-home session with Darcie and her little girl Myah. I always love when the rest of the family can join in, so we made sure to include her dog Oakley, as well as Grandma and Grandpa.

Pamela & Nick |Family |Halifax Family Photographer

I love Pam & Nick’s family. They are lighthearted and funny. They had me come to their new home being built on a gorgeous fall morning. As soon as the “mandatory” pictures were done, Nick went back to work! Haha! Their girls are beautiful, and I just love how much fun they have with each other.

Michelle & Thor | Family | Halifax Family Photographer

I spent some time for a family photography session at DeWolf Park in Bedford. Am I the only one who likes a nice, blustery Fall day? For some reason, I love the drama it creates. Not to mention it makes hand-knitted sweaters seem all the more cozy. Yes, the little one in blue is wearing a sweater that his Norwegian grandmother knit. So lovely. Norwegian grandmother also happened to be such a wonderful addition behind the scenes, making the kids smile!
