Armstrong Family, Annapolis Valley Family Photographer

This family is simply the best.

Having photographed this family over the years, including Allison and Tommy’s wedding, has made me feel truly blessed to be their photographer. I have loved watching their family grow. They are one of the most sweetest, nicest, beautiful and hilarious family you could meet.

Thank you Armstrong family!

My baby is 4!

My baby just turned 4, going on 10….

We went out last night to kick a soccer ball around the yard.  He absolutely loves it, so I decided to register him for soccer with the Middleton team.  I can’t wait to watch him! I am so excited for him…he will learn how to play a sport, the value of playing with a team, gain confidence, and make some little friends.  I’ll be that mama with her camera, on the sidelines, crying and whispering to myself, “that’s my baby!”

I love this stage of him…hell, I’ve loved every stage of him since the day he was born. Every day, I look forward to seeing what he will come up with next. He’ll either make me laugh uncontrollably, cry uncontrollably, want to give him a kiss storm, hold him tight and never let go, or all of the above.

He is my most favorite human ever.

 

Dawn – Annapolis Valley Portrait Session, Middleton, Nova Scotia

I have known Dawn for nearly 10 years.

Dawn is also an Annapolis Valley based photographer (check her out here), and when we met, it was instant friendship. Our first meeting consisted of me picking her up early one morning and driving to Halifax to meet 2 other photographers for a breakfast meet and greet, then walk the streets and alleyways, cameras in hand, of the city. We chatted the whole drive there, and all the way back home to the valley. I owe this woman a lot…she’s the reason I have pushed my photography. I was her second photographer/assistant for my very first wedding. She has mentored me, she has been my biggest fan, and she has believed in me over the years.

The other day, she came over for a visit and we ended up doing a mini portrait session. We set up my little studio (studio = the loft in my house, lol), and we had a blast.

Here are a few of my favorites from Dawn’s portrait session!

Adventures in the Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia

I love it that now my son is getting older and we go exploring together.  He absolutely loves it! Nova Scotia is such a beautiful province and I want to go explore and photograph as many sweet spots as I can with this little dude.

We ventured off of McMaster Mill, just behind Greenwood, Nova Scotia.  It’s the sweetest little park and perfect for him to explore with me.

Don’t be afraid to explore nature’s beauty in your own backyard!

Margaretsville Waterfall, Margaretsville, Nova Scotia

I just can’t get enough of this waterfall.

Same waterfall I captured the other day (Margaretsville), but today we were there at low tide so I could capture it at a different angle.

I love both images equally.   My only problem now is….which wall should I hang them on…

 

Where would you go?

If you could go anywhere – real or fictional – where would you go?

Me…I would go to Iceland! Technically, I was there twice last summer. Both times, it was on a layover stay on our way to Switzerland (to photograph an ahhh-mazing wedding for a couple of ahhhh-mazing people!!!!) for 4 hours, and on our way home for another 4 hours. Never left the airport, but took it in as much as I could from the plane window and from the airport windows. I even walked on Iceland asphalt and breathed in Iceland air on our way to the bus to get to our plane, lol.

This image is our plane about to land in Iceland…we were mesmerized by the view!

Dear Iceland, we will be back!

 

Margaretsville Waterfall, Margaretsville, Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia

For me, there is nothing more therapeutic than listening to the ocean waves hitting the shoreline. I love the sound of softness when they hit the sand, and I love the sound of the rolling rocks…then there is the smell of the salty ocean air. Fresh, clean, calm, cleansing. It instantly calms my soul. It gives me goosebumps just thinking about it.

The other day, the temperature hit +16, so my little dude and I went to one of our favourite spots, Margaretsville, do so some seashell hunting and beachcombing. These are just a few captures of the afternoon.

What’s your favorite go-to spot? You know, that place that instantly puts you in a good mood?

 

Chasing Stars – Port George Nova Scotia Night Time Photography

When a couple of friends say “hey, wanna come shoot some stars with us tonight??” You answer back “Hell YES!!!”

Our first location was a bust, so we brainstormed and ended up in Port George. It was a perfect night sky! We had tons of fun, lots of laughs, “where did Dawn go????” moments, and “OOOOO, I love that shot!!!” was heard many many times. I was quite happy I had on my ski pants, winter jacket, toque, scarf and mittens on…I know I could have stayed all night!

These are far from perfect, I still have alot of learning to do in this style of photography, but did it ever fire me up and I’m quite stoked at how these turned out. Hope you enjoy my first adventure in night time photography.

 

Studio lighting practice photography

As much as it felt so strange being on the other side of the camera…this was such a fun afternoon practicing off camera flash and posing skills with Dawn and Crystal.

Photography is not my passion.

It is so much more than that. Photography fires up my soul. It relaxes me. It understands me. It calms the craziness in my head. It makes me giggle uncontrollably. It makes me feel connected to myself. It pushes me. It helps me calm down.

Photography is not my passion. It’s my power to be myself. It is my freedom.

Thank you to Dawn and Crystal for the images of me…i feel i do much better behind the camera, not in front!

 

 

 

Greenwood Cake Smash, Annapolis Valley Family, Greenwood, Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia

This little sweetheart is celebrating her one year birthday on Valentine’s Day! <3

She completely stole my heart with her sweet little smile and little giggle.  When her cake (made by her great grandmother!) came out, she was curious and even dug her little fingers right in and took a few bites….and then the tears came.  Oh my! But when you are this adorable, you can cry at your cake smash if you want to!

Happy 1st Birthday sweet Callie!

 

Mariah & Jeremy, Annapolis Valley Wedding, Beaver Creek Winery, Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia

I have known Mariah for nearly 20 years…I have watched this beauty grow up to be the gorgeous woman she is today. So watching her marry her best friend, Jeremy, was a little bit emotional for me…and I may have had tears in my eyes a few times throughout the day 😉 The day was amazing and perfect in every way! It was filled with so many laughs, gorgeousness, handsomeness, hugs, happy tears, and so much love. Mariah and Jeremy, thank you so so much for sharing your fabulous day with me! xoxo

Jodi & Kirk, Annapolis Valley Wedding, MacMaster Mill, Greenwood, Nova Scotia

Having another photographer contact you for a photo session is both an awesome thing and the most stressful thing! When Jodi and Kirk contacted me to do their wedding anniversary photo session I was soooo excited…then got very very very nervous. Jodi is a lifestyle and boudoir photographer so you can just imagine the pressure to deliver! I have known both Jodi and Kirk for quite a long time, knowing Kirk first through work and Jodi through the photography world of course. When they got together, I was sooo excited for them. Both are amazing people! And this sweet couple have been married for #7YearsStrong!!! <3 Jodi and Kirk, big hugs and THANK YOU so much for such a wonderful (and stressful!!!! ;)) afternoon!

Have you ever seen anyone float on air as they are walking? I certainly did last Saturday <3.

I first met Kelly last fall and I knew right away that this woman was a genuine, kind and beautiful soul. Then in the spring I met Mark when we got together for their engagement session.

Baby Paige – Greenwood Lifestyle Baby Session, Greenwood, Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia

Little Miss Paige…I am going through baby snuggles withdrawals! I had the pleasure of spending the afternoon with this little sweetie and her family. It’s funny how little baby snuggles, little squeaks, little lips and nose, little toes and that baby smell can make you go all squishy! Thank you Trish, Brad, Max and Paige for inviting me into your home and allowing me to rearrange your furniture 🙂 You are one sweet family! 🙂

 

Robin & Ian -Planters Ridge Winery Wedding, Planters Ridge Winery, Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia

What an amazing evening! Robin and Ian said their “I do”‘s on the patio of Planters Ridge Winery, overlooking acres and acres of vineyards, surrounded by an intimate group of loving family members and close friends. The bride’s son walked her down the aisle to an eagerly waiting groom…melt.my.heart! Robin and Ian, thank you so much in sharing your special day with me. It was an absolute pleasure! I would also like give a big shout out to Trent of Trenton Garde Photography for being my second shooter. Thank you so much Trent!!! 🙂

 

 

Sarah & Joe – Bridgetown Apple Orchard Wedding, Bridgetown, Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia

I had the great pleasure of being the second photogher/assistant for Trenton Garde Photography for this beautiful, outdoor, apple orchard wedding. It poured rain like mad all morning and most of the afternoon, then it was crazeeee muggy…and just like magic, the rain held off and Sarah and Joe said their “I do”‘s next to a beautiful apple orchard surrounded by family and close friends 🙂 Sarah and Joe, thank you so much for sharing your special day with me. <3 Thank you Trent for asking me to be your second shooter!

I had the pleasure of photographing Alicia and Will’s wedding on Saturday, August 8. These two love each other so much, it could be felt throughout the whole room. Alicia and Will are a fun, carefree, go with the flow kinda couple. I truly enjoyed spending the day with you guys and your now extended family…thank you for sharing your special day with me! <3

 

Allison & Thomas – Just Us (Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia)

Did I ever have a blast with these two yesterday!! They were up for anything…fun, easy going and hilarious! You guys are awesome-sauce…like seriously!! 🙂 2 gorgeous people, 2 locations, yummy pink lemonade, beautiful wild flowers, mother nature’s color palette and a million mosquito bites later, here are a few of my favorites. BTW, I’m still scratching all the mosquito bites on me ar$e! lol

 

Sam – Prom (Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia)

Sam: “I am NOT photogenic!” Me thinking: “Challenge accepted!” Sam, I would have to disagree with you. You are G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S!!!! You remind me of a flower child hippie tomboy…and that’s an awesome thing! No one else could rock out a gorgeous dress with Converse sneakers…I loved it! You can’t see him, but Sam’s dad is just outside of the frame on mosquito duty…the mosquitos were savage and fierce. I know we left them quite full of our blood…they probably unbuckled their belts had a nap after we left, lol. Thank you to Sam and your family for braving the blood sucking monsters, walking around in the muck after the rain and being fly swatters. I hope you had a ball at your prom!

 

Jordon – Prom (Clare, Nova Scotia)

Prom night…I remember all the girls piling into my room, dresses layed out on the bed, makeup everywhere, curling irons, a cloud of hairspray filling the air, music blaring on the ghetto blaster and us singing along, talking about the exciting evening ahead, giggling, talking about our dates, after prom partying…that sure was a “few” years ago!! 😉 I was thrilled when Jordan’s mom contacted me to do her son’s prom pictures. Julie and I went to highschool together, and may have gotten into a few situations over our highschool years, lol. So seeing her the other day was like reuniting with an old friend again…pretty much picking up where we had left off after graduation. Jordan and his girlfriend were so much fun and naturals in front of the camera. I hope you guys had an awesome prom night and afterparty!

 

The Levy Family – Family (Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia)

Yesterday’s weather was perfect for a family session with the Levy family…we had mom (Ashley), dad (Adam), Nathan (cuteness and ham all rolled into one!), Chili (such a sweet pup), bunny (strong silent type), and two more buddies in Nathan’s backpack (sorry, I forgot their names!). I enjoyed hanging out with you guys yesterday! And we will get together soon for some wine tasting!! 😉

 

BFF’s – Best friends (Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia)

“Just tell us what to do, and we”ll do it. We also have some clothes for some wardrobe changes :)” “Awesome…but where are you going to change?” (We were shooting in a little walking park) “Oh in the woods, we’re all from the country, that doesn’t bother us one bit!” I got to hang out and shoot these 5 beauties yesterday afternoon. The weather was perfect, a sweet little breeze through the trees, a birthday girl and her 4 BFF’s, 5 beautiful smiles…and then they were off for some supper and a night out in the city. Thank you ladies for a fun photoshoot! I hope you had a blast dancing it up! 🙂

 

The MacLaughlin Family – Dartmouth Family Session, New Glasgow, Nova Scotia

 

I got to spend a couple of hours last evening with this beautiful family 🙂 I have known Katie Mitchell-MacLaughlin for about 15 years and have watched her beautiful family grow. I was her photographer for her engagement pictures, then her wedding photographer and was tickled pink when she contacted me to do a family photo shoot! Her boys are so scrumptious!!! Duncan is quite a little ham and Thomas is the strong silent type…and I fell in love with both of them instantly <3. Thank you Katie and Jared MacLaughlin for such a fun evening with you and your boys!!

 

 

 

Amy & Josh – Married (Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia)

….this was far from a Hillbilly Hitchin’ since there was no shotgun blast. 😉 The bride was stunning and classically gorgeous, the groom fabulously handsome, and the day went perfect! It was a very small celebration with the parents, Little Duck (aka Amy’s grandmother), Travis (the groomsman) and myself….and of course Pastor Langille officiating. Amy and Josh, thank you so much for including me in your very special day! I felt honored to witness and capture this beautiful event! Congratulations!!!!

Amy & Josh – Engaged (Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia)

I was excited when Amy came to me with the idea of a vintage inspired engagement session for herself and Josh.  Then we headed to Margaretsville and finished the session off with some fog and some wine.  Perfect! Congratulations!!
