I’ve noticed that some of the other photographers that I admire were putting together their “Best of 2013″ images and I thought, what the heck, why not try it! However, I decided to just pick a few of my favourites from this past year and it was incredibly hard to sort through everything! Some sessions and commercial shoots weren’t included, and if an image that you love didn’t make it on here, it was not in my WordPress folder (therefore it hasn’t been on the blog before).

Going back through all of these images was a really awesome experience. It reminded me of the amount of support I have had in my career so far, and how lucky I am to share these memories. I am completely aware that starting a business is extremely difficult, but starting a business in the photography industry when every cell phone is capable of taking high resolution photos, is even harder. I am so so so grateful to all of you, because you understand and appreciate the art and the vision that goes into my work. It is not just a point and click system, but a thoughtful and planned process. Sometimes extremely technical, and sometimes a perfect moment.

Throughout 2013, I received amazing feedback from family, friends, old colleagues, new colleagues, competitors, family friends, online communities, and even those I haven’t spoken to in years. I received an abundance of advice, help and training from multiple wonderful photographers in Atlantic Canada. I read book after book, soaking up information about light, style and gear. 2013 made me realize that I AM a photographer. I may not qualify as a “Pro” just yet (according to some associations), but I AM a photographer. And I will keep striving to accomplish more, making each year better than the last.

It is truly remarkable the support I have had, and I wouldn’t be doing what I love if it wasn’t for all of you.

Thank you.

When I asked Miss A why she wanted to do a boudoir session, she said she was doing it for herself as a keepsake and just for fun! It was her introduction to boudoir as she had never done a session before. The studio was a little colder that morning and I wish we had brought in an extra space heater but she rocked it nonetheless! As with all boudoir clients, it took the first few poses and shots to get her comfortable in front of the camera, but by the end she was a natural! You would never know that she wasn’t a model!

Before her session she went shopping at Victoria’s Secret to pick up a few outfits and we shot all three. When she brought out the black and white piece, I just had to add a little attitude and environment into the posing to match. After shooting for an hour (and even having feathers thrown at her), she said she loved it and wanted to do it all over again!

I am thankful to have another client who is willing to share their photos, to show you what we can do. Thank you Miss A, you are stunning.

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.
