It’s always fun when I get asked to take pictures for someone else’s business. Not only for the challenge and creative process it allows for, but also because meeting other small business entrepreneurs is a lovely experience. Laura is the owner of Crocus Designs, a florist who specializes in floral design for weddings and events. She is very talented, and it was cool to watch her create bouquets for a real wedding later that day.
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. We spent some time at MacCormack’s Beach in Eastern Passage. The lighting in the early evening was just lovely. It felt so natural to take pictures of these beautiful sistersplaying in the sand.

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!
I have put off announcing this for far too long: the Brisson family is growing! We are expecting baby #3 at the beginning of June. Regrettably, this means that until further notice, I won’t be doing photography sessions. While I hope to return to doing sessions again one day, I feel that my first priority is being with my family, especially during these small (and incredibly busy) little years. It has been a truly wonderful experience meeting you and your families. To be part of collecting your family’s history has been an honour, and I am grateful for all I was able to learn and experience in working with you. I belong to a wonderful community of photographers, so if you need help finding someone to capture your stories, just drop me a message and I would be delighted to help you.
What an absolutely amazing year. I had the honor of photographing 31 families, couples, babies and weddings. This was my first year as a professional photographer, and it has solidified my love for this craft. After each session, and spending hours editing their photos, I felt as though I had come to know these people so personally. As if I could call each a friend. Whether or not I see them again (I really hope I do!), each of them has found a way into my heart. Meeting these people and their families has been one of the highlights of my year. Here are a couple of my absolute favorites from our time together.
