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.
I’m not sure I’ve ever had such a perfect fall day to photograph in. Ideal temperature for sweaters (and no chilly fingers). A soft sun. Gorgeous colors (trees and wardrobe!). We had such great day at the Dingle!
I spent some time for a family photography session at DeWolf Park in Bedford. Am I the only one who likes a nice, blustery Fall day? For some reason, I love the drama it creates. Not to mention it makes hand-knitted sweaters seem all the more cozy. Yes, the little one in blue is wearing a sweater that his Norwegian grandmother knit. So lovely. Norwegian grandmother also happened to be such a wonderful addition behind the scenes, making the kids smile!
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!
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
