I’ve lived in Eastern Passage going on three years, and I’ve always been in love with the patches of lupins that grow near the Shearwater Flyer Trail in Eastern Passage at the end of June. I was so pleased when Erica contacted me, to say that she wanted them as her backdrop to her family pictures this year! Not only was it a stunning day for pictures, but this family was wonderful to photograph. The kids were so sweet and patient with my directions, and mom and dad are funny and easy going. It was a great session, and I’m in love with how these pictures turned out.
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.
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.
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!
I met Kelly and Zach for a sweet session at their home with their three kids. It was special because they had their home listed for sale, and sold it not long after we met. This home held so many memories for them and raising their boys, so I’m glad I was able to be part of preserving some of their family history! Kelly is also a #momboss, as a sales representative for Monat. I was happy to take some headshots for her!
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!
As I walked into Alex, Allison, and Theo’s beautiful home on a Sunday afternoon, I was happy to see a family gathering taking place. Apparently getting together on Sundays is a tradition this family loves to share. To me, sharing time and a meal with people I love is something I value so much. When I meet other people with those same values, it is so easy to make a connection! Continue reading
