I was contacted for an extended family photography session at their property in Purcell’s Cove. The occasion was bittersweet: after 50 years, their home would soon belong to someone else. It was the right moment to have pictures done, so that they could hold on to a piece of their family history forever. Thank you for letting me be part of this!
Jae and Alex are a stellar couple that I’ve known for a number of years now. They happened to be back in the Halifax area and contacted me for some family pictures. They have four kids under four, so their goal was a laid-back one: to get pictures with the six of them all in the frame at once! We headed to Point Pleasant Park for a nice afternoon session. It was special for them, as this is where they were married. Their four children are beautiful and full of personality, and I think we captured some really great moments with their family.
Back when it was beautiful and sunny, I had the opportunity to do an extended family photoshoot with the MacKinnon family at Rainbow Haven Beach. Four adult children with their own families…two of whom travelled from out west to spend some time together as a family. It was special to have the whole group together! There is a lot of love and laughter in this family, and I’m so pleased to have been able to capture these images for them.
I was invited to take pictures for a very special occasion: a 90th birthday party. Held at the Prince Andrew Hotel in Halifax, I photographed family formals before the reception began. It was very touching to see all of this family together, from the young to the young-at-heart. Not only that, but I was moved at how many people were able to come celebrate this woman.
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 love the fall! It was a perfect day to hang out with Liz, Cameron and their little girl Audrey at the York Redoubt National Park. And what a fun site to visit for pictures. There are a number of different “spots”, not to mention it is fun for the kids to run around.
It was a pleasure to meet Bethany & Braden’s growing family at Hemlock Ravine Park on an over cast fall day. I love the grey weather, and how it makes the fall colors really pop. Owen was a perfectly content little guy, and usually pretty happy to hang out with mom and dad.
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!
