Alexis & Matt | Family | Halifax Family Photography

I had a special photoshoot with a beautiful family this past August. Not only was it a gorgeous morning on the Halifax waterfront, but I was able to meet two amazing parents and their sweet little son Theo. To say they’ve had a rollercoaster journey in their debut as new parents would be a massive understatement. They’ve had to navigate through major health challenges during a pandemic. Despite all that is going on in their world, it would be hard to meet two more down-to-earth people. They are funny, loving, and have so much style (so much!). I’m really happy and honored to help them capture these special moments with their new family.

In the midst of this uncertainty of COVID-19, you can’t imagine the relief and the joy it brings me to meet families, both old and new, and take their pictures. To know that kids go on being kids, and families go on being families, even in a pandemic. What happiness it is to meet Kelly and her family again; to see how they’ve grown and matured in this last year. And how wonderful it is to know that kids build tree houses and run in the forest, and get really excited about fungi. It’s also fun experimenting with headshots, as Kelly runs her own home-business as a Monat representative.

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.

Had an energetic home session with this growing family! With three boys and a new baby sister, there was no shortage of sweet faces and show-and-tell! This family loves their home and spending time together, and saw it fitting that I capture them as they are, imperfections and all! Kelly is a local small business owner herself over at East Coast Kelly, and was hoping for an updated headshot, which I was happy to accommodate!

The MacKinnon Family | Extended Family | Halifax Family Photographer

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.

Marguerite | 90th birthday | Halifax Family Photographer

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.

Amber & Malcolm | Family | Halifax Family Photographer

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!
