A photography session with one of my favourite families on one of my favourite beaches….Rainbow Haven Provincial Park. Amber’s parents were visiting from Alberta, so we made sure to include Nana and Papa in the session as well. It is so special when extended family can be part of our time together. But remind me next time we head to the beach in September. BRING BUG SPRAY!
I teamed up with local artisan Laura from The Yellow Birdhouse to capture in her joyfully colourful felt creations on adorable models. Her handmade, high-quality felt creations showcase many nautical and floral designs, but I’ve seen some of her custom designs and they are uniquely beautiful as well. I had a great time chasing around these cute kids on the grounds of École Bois-Joli in Dartmouth. What a fun, naturally-inspired playground!
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.
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
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!
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!
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!
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
A cute ocean family session at Rainbow Haven beach with Bobby and Crystal and their three beautiful children.
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
