Katie & Duncan | Family | Halifax Family Photographer

Had a really nice relaxed backyard session with Katie, Duncan and their two cuties Parker and Claire. We played around in the backyard for a bit, and finished it off with a stroll down the sidewalk in their neighborhood.  Continue reading

Liz & Ryan | Family | Halifax Family Photographer

I was able to meet Liz and Ryan with their two girls at their amazing property in Hubley, Nova Scotia. What a gorgeous spot! Liz and Ryan are hilarious, and were constantly cracking jokes at one another. Their girls are sweet, fun, and feisty!

Leah & Martin Family

If I needed a tell-tale sign about our upcoming session together, I just needed to look at their footwear. Sneakers. “We brought a couple of soccer balls, if we need to round them up later.” The message was clear: we have runners! That’s ok. I like a challenge! So much energy and love. Leah and Martin’s family are so wonderful and so fun!

Johannah & Blair | Family | Halifax Family Photography

Johanna is one of my dearest friends, back from when I was a Surfguard at the National Parks on PEI. She is kind, fun, laid back, and just an excellent person all around. When she moved away to Ottawa, I was happy for the opportunities it would bring for her and her family, but I was so sad to have such a close friend move away. Thankfully, she comes to Halifax every now and then to visit her husband’s family. Naturally, I was delighted to take some family pictures of her with her littles. The funny part is that we were just hanging out….my kids are totally here with me behind the scenes!

Amber & Malcolm | Family | Halifax Family Photographer

I love meeting Amber, Malcolm, and their growing family year after year! We spent some laid-back time together at a park in their neighbourhood. We went for a walk, and we were able to capture some lovely moments along the way! Click to view more from our time together  Continue reading

Amber & Malcolm | maternity | Halifax Maternity Photographer

One of my favorite families! Amber, Malcolm, and Kendan needed some updated family pictures done because…there was another baby on the way! And what could have been more perfect than heading back to the same spot I met them the first time: Shubie Park. This time, it was a beautiful summer day, absolutely perfect for walking around with an energetic 2-year-old.

One of the best parts of being a family photographer is meeting other families. Often, we can relate on some level because of our kids. It’s so fun telling stories and laughing about this crazy life. Amber’s kids are roughly the same age as my kids (spoiler alert: she had a little girl. So a boy and a girl…just like me!). I remember thinking that it would be pretty cool to hang out with them. Thankfully, Amber was thinking along the same lines, and we’ve actually been able to meet up a couple of times!

I’m so honored to have been part of seeing this family grow over the last two years! Until next time 🙂 Continue reading

Halifax Family Photography

On a hunch, I brought along some shelled peanuts for Isla, Leah and Martin’s 3-year-old. I wasn’t worried about John warming up to me; babies his age tend to smile easily. But having a 2-year-old myself, I know that learning to trust a stranger enough to smile isn’t easy for a toddler. About halfway through our time together, I showed her how to leave the peanuts out for the chipmunks and squirrels. Thankfully, our furry friends at the park were quick to respond, and it was so amazing to see Isla light up as they came right up to her!

When Leah contacted me to photograph her family, she told that her greatest hope was to capture the four of them doing something they love. She hoped that I might tag along like another family member, snapping away as they enjoy time together as a family. As the sun set low in the horizon, we enjoyed a beautiful summer’s evening, walking together in the park.

Reyann’s Cake Smash | Halifax Family Photographer

untitled-13

I had the pleasure of meeting little Reyann and his wonderful parents on his 1st birthday. They were busy preparing for their guests, and wanted to capture their little boy digging into his Micky Mouse cake. I was immediately taken with Reyann. He has the most beautiful brown eyes and gentle demeanour. A lot of one year olds might be scared of a strange lady with a big camera in their face, but he just patiently stared at me! He even gave me some adorable smiles. He was also SO gentle in his cake smash! He slowly picked at his cake (as opposed to my son, who literally smashed his cake into his whole face!).
