York Redoubt is one of my favorite locations for family photographs.  Great old buildings with interesting stonework, lots of greenery, and of course, the view of Halifax Harbour!  I was so happy when Heather suggested this location for our extended family session a few weeks ago!

It had been awhile since I'd seen little Ryan.  He just keeps getting cuter and cuter :)  He certainly gave me a run for my money (literally!) but I managed to keep up with him and get some adorable shots.  Look at that face!!  I especially loved watching him interact with his Grandparents, who were visiting from Edmonton.






Happy, colourful, energetic.... I love it SO much!  My kind of family :)

 

Flowers will ALWAYS win my heart!

 

We had a beautiful evening, nice and warm with a little bit of wind (ok a LOT of wind!)  Perfect Maritime weather!  The big blue skies were just amazing.

 

Life is good, isn't it?!

 





Have a great week, friends!



PS. See that beautiful quilt up there in the first few photos?  It was custom made for me by the very talented Tanya, at Mokemo Motif.  Head on over to her FB page (https://www.facebook.com/MokemoMotif) to show her some love and check some of her other amazing handmade products.

Those of you who know me personally, know that I'm lucky enough to have two home provinces - Nova Scotia and PEI.  Born on PEI, and raised in NS, I consider both to be my "home."  It's a conscious decision for our little family to live, work, and raise our children in this special part of Canada, because I truly believe there's nowhere else in our huge country that can compare not only to the scenery, but to the hospitality and the warmth of the people who live here*.  It's comfortable, and it's just so us

Now that I'm a mother to two awesome boys, I feel so lucky to be able to give them an amazing life here in Nova Scotia, and special summer memories on PEI.  As I look at photos of them running through the red dirt, and playing in the warm waters, I'm reminded of my childhood vacations spent at my Grandparents' house.  A deep breath of the fresh summer air immediately transports me back to my Grandmother's garden, or the field behind their house where we played until dusk, or on the ferry, anxiously awaiting our schedule-free vacations.

It's that feeling of freedom.  Drinking from the hose and eating ice cream for lunch - that's what I call good memories!

Here are a few photos of my boys enjoying our most recent vacation on PEI.  You can almost feel the sun :)

 



 

 

If you're planning a trip to PEI this summer and you'd like to capture your special memories, let me know!  I offer a special "vacation rate" during the times we're there.  Sessions are so relaxed (you're on vacation, right?!) and there are tons of great spots that are perfect for pictures within a very short drive.  Caution: your kids will be ridiculously happy.  Be prepared for fits of giggles, lots of running in the sand, and more hugs than you're used to.  PEI has that effect on them :)

In the studio that is!  After a long winter, it's time to throw open the curtains and open the studio again. 

My studio is undergoing a few small changes, but is still officially "open for business."  I've been changing things up a bit and focusing less on the bright lights of my strobes, and more on embracing the natural light that flows through my windows all day.  Maybe it's just a phase I'm going through, but for now, I'm loving it!  Simple, honest and raw. 

What do you think?

It's a love/hate relationship with winter, isn't it?  The cold and snow, and the never ending shoveling...let's face it, after awhile we all get a little tired of it.  BUT, here's the thing.  Winter portraits are SPECTACULAR!!!  Seriously, they're some of my favourite sessions to shoot. 

Case in point - check out these gorgeous ladies against the freshly fallen snow...

 

Aren't they STUNNING?!  Here's a few more!

 

 

I love the fresh, crisp white in the background.  And with the evergreen trees peeking through - it's just perfect.

So although I know we're all a little tired of the white stuff right now, don't discount winter as an incredible season to capture your family's photos.  With the way things have been going this year, I think it's safe to say there's still time to book a snowy winter photo session this season!
