Another great pair on the wedding blog train this summer. I had the pleasure of photographing Lindsay and Jeannot’s Fabulous Cheticamp wedding this summer. ( on my anniversary to be exact ) I will keep my words to a minimum and let the photos tell their love story. Thanks again for having me be a part of your day guys.
Wow can hardly believe we are now at her 3 month session and soon time to get to shooting her 4th month. I have been in a sea of edits and shoots and of course I am loving it, however the only downfall is that I don’t get to spend near the time with this lil lady as I would like. I keep telling myself to enjoy this ride and winter time is coming and we can snuggle in bed til noon. I can be a bit delusional, I am still kinda holding on the idea of running to the mountains with the baby for a week. Yep like I said delusional! but the idea of it sounds wonderful doesn’t it? So hence being a busy picture taking grandmother time is not on my side, so my Posey Peach got in on a little back to school action. Why not right the set was all done and set up so we went with it! Brit came out after we decided this would be her three month session with her school attire on. Anyone who knew my mama would know that she didn’t always have much but she always looked good and so did her kids. My Uncle once said, Tina could make anything look good she just throws a bow on it and she’s good to go. I think your great Nan would approve of mommy’s quick thinking! Almost like she’s paying homage to her name sake. I have some added shots at the end of one of our sleepovers, and too cute not to show off. I love having this new love in my life. We are indeed blessed!
Its that time of year again! There is something so exciting about back to school. Saying goodbye to summer and hello to a brand new school year complete with new clothes, shoes and school supplies. I loved seeing these excited little faces come to have their school photos taken. I will keep this short and sweet. If you missed out on this sweet session we will be holding them over this Friday the 26th of Sept.
Instead of me gushing about how much I loved shooting this AH-mazing couple, I decided to get some words from the groom himself…
“Megan and I first met in the hallway of our residence at St FX. We started as friends and I quickly came to the realization that I wanted to spend more time together and get to know her better. I wasn’t the smoothest operator back then but my resilience eventually paid off as I was able to convince her to give me a shot …after a few failed attempts.
We have spent a significant portion of our relationship living in different provinces, so despite being newlyweds our relationship has lots of miles on it. While it was difficult at times, it has definitely made our relationship that much stronger.
When I saw Meg for our “first glance” I was blown away by how amazing she looked. It was like the wedding dress was made just for her. We were blessed with a beautiful wedding day and felt an overwhelming amount of gratitude that we were able to be surrounded by those we love. When people tell you a wedding day goes by fast they are not lying. We both said at the end of the night that we couldn’t have dreamed up a better wedding day and how the entire day felt surreal. We really felt like the whole day truly represented who we are as a couple.”
Where do I start with this amazing family. I guess I should start by saying this shoot had me a little stressed out because Sherri is also a photographer and of course I wanted everything to be perfect. I actually met Sherri a few years ago when she contacted me about doing her family’s photos back when they were a family of 3. I immediately hit it off with her, I suppose our mutual love of photography was a great starting point. Sherri has an infectious personality and you can’t help but love her. She is bubbly, kind and outgoing not to mention crazy ( in a good way of course) when you are with Sherri you are guaranteed to laugh your butt off! I suppose you could say I instantly recognized myself in her and the more I get to know her the more I see how much we really are alike. From our insecurities and our incredible need to want everything just so in our work, to beating ourselves up when things are not the way we expected. I hated that when I started out I had nobody to really go to with questions and concerns about this industry. I kinda just kept to myself trying to learn and suck up any bit of info I could pertaining to this craft. I loved that Sherri would often come to me with questions and concerns. ( and it was actually kinda nice that I could help her out ) I suppose it was through this that we ended up becoming friends. I love that we ( and Brittany too ) have our own unique little trio. We can all vent to one another and have someone that actually gets it. Lets face it our husbands are wonderful but really they are probably sick of hearing about this world of ours. We will soon be turning the tables and Sherri will be photographing my family, something I am sad to say I have never done. Other than me setting up shots on a tripod! This will be a first and I am pretty excited about it. I loved shooting your family ( yea that sounds bad) from sweet and smiley little Milo to spicy and full of spunk Molly! Adam I also know photo shoots are sometimes long and stressful with little ones but I am so glad you get it and got in the water. Sherri to you I have to have to say I am so glad to call you my friend! I also think we gals are overdue for and evening of getting dressed up pretty with some good food/wine, after a cross fit session that is. So heres a look at your beautiful family!
