Welcome to

THE BLOG

We met Marina and Matt several years ago when we had the pleasure of photographing their wedding. It was beautiful, emotional, and full of joy and happy tears. Fast forward to two years ago, and their world and love expanded to include the most precious baby boy, Freddy. He was a sweet and happy baby, and I was happy to see the MacAdam family again recently for his second birthday photo session while all of his grandparents were visiting. He is still the same happy little man, albeit way more on the go these days.

Here is a sneak peek from their recent session.

My brother-in-law Ben and his fiance Vanessa are goofy and silly. He’s sharp as a tack with a quick whit, and she is easy going and doesn’t take life too seriously. They recently popped over from PEI for their engagement session on the Halifax waterfront, and they had the perfect day for it.

They both are active, and outdoorsy, and she is a marathon runner. In fact she recently completed an Ironman Triathlon, which consists of a 3.86 km swim, a 180.25 km bicycle ride and a marathon 42.20 km run, raced in that order and without a break. It is widely considered one of the most difficult one-day sporting events in the world. Needless to say, she’s pretty proud to have finished the race.

We incorporated a little humor in their session which totally jived with how they are in person. We can’t wait to see what their wedding day has in store!

…that you won’t find on most similar lists

Guest Post by Tina Lesyk of Pineapple Eventworks.

The Westin Nova Scotian Hotel, Halifax

If you are reading this, you’re likely engaged (Congrats!), helping a recently engaged loved one plan their special day, or are hoping that your loved one will ask you in the near future. You don’t need a ring to envision your dream wedding, but it helps to have some guidelines to help you with your planning.

Picking your venue and asking the right questions is so important when taking your dream wedding from a vision into a reality. Maybe you are considering a traditional hotel or a unique venue like a barn that transforms from a market by day to a romantic venue by night. There are so many creative options to choose from when setting the location of you wedding venue. Regardless of where your wedding takes place, be sure to have a list of questions ready when you are meeting with vendors. This will help eliminate unpleasant surprises down the road, and will help you pull together all the little details that will bring your vision to life.

Here are just 3 of the many questions to consider asking your wedding venue that you won’t find on most similar lists.

Lighting – you want to ensure that the lighting is just as you want it. You may want to ask the following:

1. What kind of lighting does the venue have?
2. Are the lights on dimmers?
3. Where are the fixtures positioned? You may want to take this into consideration when setting up your guest book.

Interactive Guest Book, Pier 21, Halifax

Ask to see the lighting options for yourself. This is not a deal breaker question but certainly something you want to be aware of while planning. Your photographer will also appreciate that you took these points into consideration.

If you are planning an outdoor ceremony, where will the sun be at that time? You and your groom want to see each other with open eyes when you make a vow to each other, as do your guests who do not want to be squinting from sunshine.

Observation Deck, Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, Halifax

Does the venue provide linens and if so what size and shape are they? Do the linens fit the tables the way you are picturing them to? For example: do they reach the floor and are they round or square?

These few questions only begin to scratch the surface of things to consider when you are choosing a venue for your wedding. Each couple will have a different list of priorities of what is most important for their ideal wedding venue.

If you’re dreaming of a reception venue with a spectacular view of the water, then you should go see the Armdale Yacht Club. The sparkling blue water will delight your guests, and with three sides of the room featuring huge windows, everyone will get a chance to enjoy the view. The warm colour palette coordinates with lots of wedding themes, and we love the rose gold and blush pink look featured in this styled shoot.

ultrasound photo maternity session prop

If you have had (or are planning to have) an ultrasound scan done during your pregnancy, the resulting photographs can make a beautiful addition to your maternity photography session.

Bringing your printed ultrasound photographs is a great idea, because not only do we get to see you in the resulting portraits, but we get to see your baby too. These images make for great announcement cards to send to friends and family, or you can incorporate them into a collage of images to display in the baby’s nursery. We also love adding them to custom designed albums for our baby plan clients (a series of four sessions including maternity, newborn, sitting up, and first birthday).

During the scan you get a sneak peek of your little bundle of joy, and there is nothing like hearing that heart beating for the first time. Our friends over at Mom2Bee 3D/4D Ultrasound can even record your baby’s heartbeat to a teddy bear for you to snuggle and hear whenever you want. Any time you are feeling anxious to meet your new family member, you can curl up with your stuffy and listen to the sound of his heart. How wonderful is that?

There is something truly amazing about being able to see your child before they arrive. You will love the keepsake of the ultrasound photo next to the belly, and your child will love seeing the comparison when he is older and trying to figure out how his once fit in your tummy!

Alison knows how much Ryan’s dog Flex means to him. He really is Ryan’s buddy. He loves going for walks at their favourite park, and has this adorable habit of absconding with favourite toys to hide them… including the rubber chicken I brought with me to the session. Every time we went and got it, Flex grabbed it and headed off to a new spot in some long grass, or in some brush and tried to bury it again. The morning was perfect for photography, and was a great way to start off Ryan’s birthday.

The Cooper family are Baby Planners, so we’ve been with them from the beginning, before Laughlan had even arrived. The very first time we met, Dragana and Russell were a little unsure of what to expect, but they dutifully dressed in the clothing styles I recommended and brought a hand knitted blanket that Russell’s mother gave him when he was a kid. It was a cold and wintery day, but the light was magical. After we got through the “get to know you” stage, they were glowing with excitement, and we had lots of fun giggling and taking pictures. The best part is that now they will have beautiful images to share with Laughlan when he’s older. Fast forward a few months, and you can see the bouncing baby boy himself, at newborn and most recently sitting up (6 months ish). They will complete their Baby Plan next spring around his first birthday, and will receive a collage of their favourite images from each session to remember all of these amazing milestones of the first year of his life. We are also talking about designing an album after the last session so that they have a portable and archival way to hold onto lots of images that they will love forever. More on that to come!

If your company has a boardroom or a large office, or you have access to one, business headshots for your team are easy. It can be as simple as a blank wall (as pictured here). We bring all of the professional lighting and camera equipment to transform your space into a studio, and your staff can come and go with ease and then get back to their day. When prepping everyone on what to wear, suggest that they dress for their best client, and choose solid colours. Bonus points if clothing coordinates with your brand, because online and in print, subconsciously it will appear more polished.
