The best models

These girls have become some of my favorite models to work with. They’re dancers, and they say yes to anything I suggest. They all have pretty bright futures in whatever they choose to do-  but I hope they stick with dancing.

A year and a baby

So apparently I don’t update my website often enough… it was only a short time ago I posted some wedding photos with Tim & Julia. Now, they’ve celebrated their first anniversary and we did some photos today… with their new baby!

Red haired gentlemen

Have been spending time doing photos with this family as a yearly event. The boys are always so polite and well behaved, despite being asked to pose and jump and do ridiculous things. They liked this more ‘serious’ look.

Growing up fast

I’ve been photographing this guy since before he was born. Every year he gets more fun, and more grown up!

The Home Alone face

Over the holidays my nephews watched “Home Alone” for the first time. It was really fun to experience it again through them, and they learned, and mastered the “Kevin-with-the-aftershave” photo. Have a look and see who does it better!

Family friends

This was a very special wedding- the brides parents, and my parents, stood for each other’s weddings many years ago. J is a peach and I loved being together with her family again- a lot of special memories!

The best anniversary

My friend Trish is a fabulous gal! She and her husband Corey decided to celebrate their wedding anniversary in style- with me! There was still so much love between them and it was an awesome way to spend a beach day. I hope someday to find the kind of relationship they have- the kind where […]

Longtime friend

My friend L and I have known one another since we were five. We met on the bus home from school in New Minas and were playmates for a long time. Now she’s all grown up and married to a super guy with two adorable munchkins.

A baby on the way

My friend Laura and her hubby got together with me for some maternity photos… and because I’m super slow in posting things, the baby is already here! But here they are on Kingsport beach, a very special spot for them.

Mc… Churchills?

These crazy ladies are dear friends of mine. Every once in a while they get a fun idea for a nutty photoshoot and sometimes I get to tag along! This time we went to McDonalds were the girls confused the heck out of all the patrons with their fancy dinnerware and evening gowns.

A beautiful face

This little child is so precious! During our photoshoot she was very interested in these pink flowers and wanted to sniff them. She reminds us all that the little moments are most important! Check out that beautiful smile.

Up at Black Rock

One of my dearest friends and her husband came home for a visit and I went up for well, supper! They are all fantastic cooks and I never miss a chance to be at their table! But before that we wandered over to Black Rock beach and grabbed a few photos. Here is my friend […]

Little M

I’ve been photographing little M and her family since she was a baby. She’s not a baby anymore- climbing around the playground like she owns the place! A fun day at the Dingle park.

Kicking out winter

One of my favorite families and dearest friends, the M family, came for a visit towards the end of winter to play in the snow. It was actually a beautiful sunny day, despite the snow, and we had some fun saying goodbye to winter in the best way possible- snowballs!

Jeff Hennessy

If you hang around Wolfville long enough, you’ll eventually run into Jeff Hennessy. Whether through the Acadia School of Music, or through his own life as a performer / songwriter, he’s a well-known musician. I recently spent some time with Jeff doing some new headshots for his recent tour. You can catch Jeff performing around […]

A baby brown monkey!

In high school, my three best gals and I called ourselves the brown monkies. We thought it was pretty funny at the time- and we’ve remained close over the years and get especially excited about big life events in each other’s world. The arrival of this little sweetie marks the very first baby brown monkey! […]

Movember 2013

My dear friend Kristy Taylor and I dreamed up a project last year to help raise awareness for Prostate Cancer. We invited Annapolis Valley women to don mustaches and show their support for men. This year, we did the project again. 35 women came together to raise $560 for Prostate Cancer Canada and we had […]

Man’s best friend

This couple knew exactly the photo they wanted with their newly adopted pooch- just the three of them, with Morgan the dog peering over their shoulder.

More family fun

I’ve been super busy this season photographing families- many of whom I know, and others who I get to know during our time together. I love this part of my job, as the community I live in is so special and I’m coming to value it more every day. Here are some of the fantastic […]

My favorite family, ever

I know I say that a lot about the families I get to work with- but this one is true, because it’s mine! My dad (who is also a photog) and I teamed up on Thanksgiving morning to take some photos of our selves, together. Here are a few of my favorites that I took […]

It’s all about the dog

Being a dog person, I can relate to a couple who feels their furry companion is their friend and child! I had a great time up in Harmony with Brittany, Richard and their pooch Zelda!

All smiles

I met up with Ben, (who I went to school with) his wife, and their little smiley, giggly girl at Prescott House one fall afternoon. We had a great time and Little A was such a fantastic model- always smiling or jumping or posing!

Tree hangin’

This was the second photoshoot I’d done with the L family- and the second time was just as fun as the first! The kids were up for anything, including climbing trees and smiling the whole time. Can’t wait to see them again!

Grandkids are the best!

Two grandparents, four parents, and four grandkids at Uniacke Park equals a fantastic day playing in the sun! Although it did take some jumping up and down and silly noises, we did manage to get a shot where all four grandkids looked at the camera- and smiled!

Baby T

Some friends of mine had a beautiful baby girl a while back- and it reinforced my love of newborn photography. They’re just so easy, sleepy and snuggly- and Baby T was no exception!

Trash the Family- Taylor

You’ve heard of Trash the Dress? Well, how about Trash the Family? My dear and creative friend Kristy came up with the great idea to take some family photos at the beach- but really, IN the beach. The kids were given the green light to get as messy as possible, and that included getting mom […]

Old friends on the south shore

One of the things I love about my job is when a dear friend from days past invites me to reconnect with them and be a part of their wedding day. I love getting to know people all over again- especially when they are as fun and beautiful as Michelle and her wonderful family. Here’s […]

Catching up with an old friend

One of the great things about social media is its ability to reconnect us with people we would otherwise never hear from. This was especially true in the case of my friend Amanda, who was a dear playmate when we were children. She moved away just before middle school, to some far away sounding place […]
