When I first moved to Halifax, and I was just being introduced to the modelling industry, I was assisting a fellow photographer who had Kyla as the model. All the work I had (and still do) see her in was so well put together from all participating parties, and the concepts were executed perfectly creating amazing images! I knew that I wanted to work with her, but I felt like I needed to come up with an idea and lighting that was cool, different, and interesting! Time went on, I lacked creativity, and the logistics weren’t right. But then I started thinking back on this article that I had read, that sometimes creativity comes from the simplest things. Sometimes you have to tear down everything you know and start from the beginning. Keep it simple. So I took away all the lights, all the ideas, let Kyla be Kyla, and just kept it simple.

Last week during the Halifax heat wave, I had the pleasure of photographing Allyson and Steve’s reception at Point Pleasant Park and the Dalhousie University Club. Allyson and Steve had already enjoyed their ceremony in Niagara Falls last winter with their parents as guests, but hadn’t had the chance to celebrate with their friends and extended families, so they held an intimate dinner for those who weren’t able to attend the ceremony. They had allotted tons of time before their dinner to take photos in the park which was perfect! And considering the intense heat, very helpful to be able to take our time. As I keep growing as a wedding photographer, I am very thankful to my wonderful clients for letting me capture their wedding day. And each wedding I shoot, the more I fall in love with my job.

 

 

My best friend’s mother came across the country from Vancouver to visit and it was a whirlwind tour as they tried to capture the full maritime experience in just a few days. They managed to shoot through the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton, pass through New Brunswick and enjoy parts of Prince Edward Island. They were even able to spend a couple of days in my “stomping grounds” the adorable little town of Wolfville, where my husband and I were married. I was amazed that they were able to squeeze in a shoot on the last day of the visit! Thankfully the weather cooperated too!

After the visit I got to thinking about how I hadn’t seen them together since Carlyn and I were in high school. Both of us moved away for university and we have mostly seen each other when we lived in Wolfville or now in Halifax. We have hardly visited back home at the same time, so it’s been almost a decade since I was with them both. I noticed how their dynamics had slightly changed and I started thinking back on my own relationship with my mother.

From a daughter’s point of view, it is amazing how the relationship between daughter and mother changes as the daughter grows older. In my case, and I’m sure in many other cases, when I was a child I looked up to my mother for everything. I wanted to BE her! When I grew into my teenage years, it was quite the opposite. I was definitely going through a rebellious teenage stage. I couldn’t see, and almost refused to see, that she never did anything wrong. She was there supporting me and looking out for me, yet I criticized her every move; I knew better, she didn’t! In hindsight, I have no idea how she put up with me and I realize how awful I was to her sometimes. As years passed and I slowly matured from that stage, I started to go back to looking up to her for answers. I started to understand that mothers can be friends too, and that’s all they ever wanted. It’s common knowledge that the teenage years are the hardest, for both the parents and the children, but I wish I hadn’t been such a terror at times. As I move on into my adult life, I think about how one day I hope to have a daughter, and I hope that she realizes these things much faster than I did, so we can develop faster into being friends.

Even though this past weekend was very wet, we still managed to get some shots in the Public Gardens. I was afraid that we were going to be stuck in a sudden downpour of rain but the weather was on our side! I absolutely love the lush green of the Gardens, making a perfect nature background for the van Vugt’s. The youngest was hesitant on giving a smile, but once he did, you couldn’t help but smile back! It may have taken a bit of jumping up and down and silly faces from mom and dad.
