A sneak peek of Miss J’s boudoir session.

This shoot happened within 3 days of the inquiry because she was determined to catch the wonderful colours of fall. She had so many great ideas for her session that we ending up shooting until it was too dark! It was an overcast evening but her sister stepped in as my assistant and did a great job with the lighting.:)

Boudoir doesn’t always have to be shot inside a bedroom, even though it is the most common and the first place we think of for a session. The great outdoors provides interesting elements, and sometimes even a horse!

 

A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by the Women of Industry Fort Nelson to attend their event to raise money for the Fort Nelson Senior Society. The Women of Industry host 4 events a year to raise money for various organizations within the town. As well, I was asked if I could donate a prize for their raffle draw. The event was called “Jukebox Mania” and listed contests for best costume, best dance, and best lip sync. I figured since I didn’t know anyone going to the event, I wouldn’t risk dressing up especially when I had no idea what to expect.

When I first arrived I had unknowingly parked on the wrong side of the building and there weren’t any other cars to be seen. I spent 10 minutes trying to find my way to the right room in the Rec Centre and ended up going in a circle. (Don’t ask me how… but it happened). I had to call my husband who was in Vancouver at the time to ask him if I was in the right place. When I finally found the room I was surprised to find a room FULL of women dressed in costumes as some of their favourite singers and bands. They had decorated the venue in music notes, posters, blow up guitars, and even a life size cardboard Gene Simmons and Luke Bryan (which were auctioned off at the end of the night).

I set my donation gift certificate down next to other prizes from local businesses, found a seat, and waited for the event to begin. As I suspected of a small town, all of the women knew each other and had their tables of teams set out for the games. I probably seemed pretty out of place with a giant table all to myself and instantly regretted sitting at a completely empty table, thinking it was going to be a very long night. Thankfully, within seconds Lorelei (owner of Gold Fever) came over and offered me a seat at her table. I met the other women at the table, although I may not recognize some of them as they went all out with the costumes.

The night consisted of many games of “name that tune” and some pretty outrageous contests. The dinner was buffet style and had so many wonderful desserts that I could have just filled up on cake. I was impressed that this event was so popular and well organized, and I was happy to see that my prize had several little raffle tickets in its bucket. I’m grateful to the table of women who invited me over and made what could have been a long night at an empty table, a fun night to remember.

As you can probably guess with this blog post, this family session is the outcome of the gift certificate. The Johnson family were the winners of the prize and were able to put it towards a fall session. They were so excited to have won that we had booked a time and date within a couple of days of the event, which reassured me that donating a prize was a good idea. The location was on a hill in Fort Nelson and it had an incredible view of the distant mountains and vast forests. It took a little bit to get the little ones smiling, but once they did I captured some priceless images (particularly when they didn’t think they were getting their picture taken).

 

I have to thank my husband, James, for finding this beautiful spot for photos. As we get to know Fort Nelson, most of the desired family photo areas are between 45 minutes and 3 hours away. As soon as you leave Fort Nelson, there is one highway/road and you’re surrounded by thick forest for hours. We are truly secluded and it’s still going to take some getting used to. I would love to shoot out in the rockies every day, but it’s not realistic as it’s a decent drive away.

The community trail in Fort Nelson is a popular place to walk dogs (when there isn’t a bear sighting), and while I was off in Halifax last month my husband came across a section of the trail that would provide beautiful colours and lighting. I’m hoping we can find more local spots that can transform into great settings, including using some of the buildings in town.

I also have to thank James for connecting me to the Tofte’s. He works with Mitchell, and after being invited to spend an afternoon at his campsite when we first moved, he discovered I was a photographer and said he was looking for family photos in the fall. Time flew by, and here they are!

Megan and Robbie were the last engagement session I photographed before I moved from Nova Scotia to British Columbia. Their wedding is also the last one I have this year (and maybe ever!) in Nova Scotia, and it was a wedding to remember. Megan made an absolutely stunning bride with a 10 foot double veil and a jaw dropping bouquet of bold colours from Pilcher’s Flowers & Gifts. Her bridesmaids were dressed in different shades of pink with teal and gold accessories, which made such a beautifully coloured wedding. The ceremony and reception were both held at Ashburn Golf Club on Joseph Howe Drive in Halifax. Fortunately it didn’t rain for the outdoor ceremony, but there were some potential clouds hanging around, which actually helped bring out the bold colours.

I spent most of the day with the women of the wedding party and Morgan spent the day with the men. We occasionally met throughout the day but only really got the chance to talk before dinner and the first thing both of us said was “have you seen the CAKE yet?!” Once you see it, you’ll know the reason for the excitement. I am in absolute awe of the work of City Girl Cakes.

Congratulations Megan and Robbie, you are a beautiful couple and I am so thankful that I could be a part of your day. You and your wedding party were so much fun to photograph! “So we hold our flowers like this, right?”

This is my first session up in Fort Nelson and I couldn’t be happier with the results! We aimed to shoot right at 9:00am, but my husband and I got lost on the way to the farm. We had used Google maps but we quickly realized that in remote locations, Google doesn’t work as well and stops pinpointing addresses… Lesson learned. We thought we had taken the wrong road, turned around, realized we were on the right road for the past 14km and had to turn around again and drive back! It ended up that we had been only a couple kilometers away in the first place! Despite our lack of knowledge of the area, we were still able to start shooting in time to catch the morning glow of the sun.

When Jacquie mentioned that she wanted a country-themed engagement shoot to match their lifestyle, I couldn’t wait to start shooting! Farms provide so many different locations and textures; the possibilities are endless. Their session was set for an hour and a half, but I could have kept shooting through the afternoon! They were so natural to pose and they were up for anything. The combination of cowboy boots and a cowboy hat was picture perfect.

Congratulations Reily and Jacquie!

P.S. Can you spot the bumblebee?
