I got together with Soho Ghetto for another shoot, as their band members have changed since the last time. They have also been working on rebranding and solidifying their look for this album. I’m excited to see it once it comes out and you should definitely check out one of their shows this year. If you haven’t heard them before, go to their website sohoghetto.com, where you can listen to a few of their songs!

 

Barbara and Shaun met at Mount Saint Vincent University , and they both tell the same story of how they met. It was the first class of a winter semester course, where they purposely chose seats side by side, instantly attracted to one another. Five years later, on December 21, 2011, during Barbara’s visit to Bermuda (where Shaun is originally from) they went out for dinner where Shaun proposed and she said YES!

I had the privilege to photograph Barbara and Shaun’s engagement session in December 2012 while Shaun was visiting Halifax. The weather temperature was definitely in the negative that day, but they stuck it out with a few short breaks back to the heated car! This past December, on the same date of their engagement, they tied the knot! Luckily, the weather was a little warmer than the year before, and we were able to take a shot with some sparklers outside of the church!

A few days before the big day, Barbara and Shaun were informed that their booked reception hall had flooded and suddenly plans had to be made and rearranged! The reception was moved to an entirely different location, but you would have never known. The entire wedding went smoothly and they were both radiating happiness and love throughout the day.

Thank you Barbara and Shaun for allowing me to be a part of your special day!

Christmas is hands down my favourite time of year. Despite the fact that I’m not the biggest fan of winter, Christmas makes the whole season worth it. This year, my husband and I spent the holiday with his side of the family in Truro. We had our niece and nephews to spend time with, which made the holiday that much more exciting as Santa was expected to arrive. Their scout Elf had been keeping a watchful eye all month, and he must have reported an excellent review to the North Pole because Christmas morning was filled with an incredible amount of presents.

At 7:00am that morning, I could hear little voices coming from downstairs, eager to run to the tree. For the first time in years, I looked out the window and snow was falling softly. A white Christmas! As the adults in the house slowly rose and made coffee, my niece couldn’t wait to rummage through her stocking and get started! Throughout the morning, everyone took turns opening presents as they were passed out by the children. There were many shocked and happy faces, which were fun for me to capture. After the presents and breakfast had finished, the children were off to their other grandparents’ house for more festivities. While we stayed and sorted through our presents, we had the best part of Christmas to look forward to; turkey dinner! The stuffing and gravy are my favourite, and take home leftovers are always a must. (After I finish this post, I’m going to go heat some up).

It’s hard to believe that another year has gone by. I am always reminded when I visit with the children, because they are getting so big! When you see them only a few times a year, it really makes a difference. The youngest is already running around the house and climbing up on anything he can.

As the year comes to an end, I have so much to be thankful for. I am thankful for my families and their health, my husband, my loveable puppy dogs, my friends near and far, and for my own wellbeing. I hope that 2014 will be just as good as 2013 and if it happens to be better, I’ll take it!

Happy Holidays to you and your families, may 2014 bring you happiness and love.

There are so many things I love about Vancouver. The mountains, the air, the ocean, and the rain. You’re probably thinking, rain?? Yes, the rain.

I am aware that Vancouver has a reputation for ALWAYS raining; but guess what, it doesn’t get crazy snow storms or -9384759 degrees celcius weather. Yes, it can rain quite a bit especially in November, but I promise, it doesn’t rain ALL THE TIME.

There is something very refreshing and peaceful about Vancouver rain. It isn’t paired with blistering cold winds, nor four feet of snow. It doesn’t pierce your skin like tiny needles falling from the sky. It still smells like you’re in the great outdoors up in the mountains, when you are standing down on West Broadway/Cambie with people rushing by to the Canada Line and cars zooming past to get downtown. The people in Vancouver aren’t afraid of rain.

 

Earlier this year, my very close friends got engaged and I am beyond excited that a) they are getting married!!! and b) my husband and I are standing in their wedding. We always knew they would tie the knot because they are absolutely perfect together, and we are so incredibly happy that it’s happening! Their wedding is going to take place in Vancouver in 2014 and because I live so far away, I wanted to get an engagement photo in the brief time I had in BC last week. And as you may have guessed, it rained on the one day that we could get together. Thankfully, being both Vancouverites (Mike, you count as one now), the rain didn’t completely stop them from going down to Granville Island. However, the walk to the site kind of drenched him and he was soaked and shivering by the time we took these shots. Thanks for being troopers, but Mike, where was your raincoat? You should really know better, you’ve lived there for how long now? :p (No camera gear was damaged in the making of these shots).

Even though I am 6,153km away, (according to Google after finding our respective homes), I am wishing them a wonderful engagement and I will see them at the wedding!!!!!

BOU·DOIR [boo-dwahr, -dwawr]
noun
a woman’s bedroom or private sitting room.
[dictionary.com]

Sessions can be taken in hotel rooms or in the comfort of your own home. The first step is a free consultation to discuss the process and how you would like your images to feel and look. Picking your boudoir photographer is an important task as each photographer has their own style, so make sure their portfolio suits the image you are going for. I aim to create a comfortable atmosphere with minimal lighting equipment, or other distractions, to let the subject feel relaxed so that we can bring out their natural beauty. I am a firm believer that doing a boudoir session either for a significant other, or just for yourself, will boost self confidence. You will walk away with a sense of pride for believing and trusting that you are beautiful inside and out.
