I appreciate each and every email and message, I’m thrilled you love my work and are interested in all the details and for those who are ready to book their session, it’s really appreciated….I had the opportunity to meet so many of you at the Summer Street Shopping Event in New Glasgow as well as at the Steeletown Craft Show in Trenton, thanks so much for stopping by my booth, it means the world to me….shopping local is near and dear to my heart so thanks very much.

I’ve put my heart and soul into this business for 15 years and for that I am grateful to you all. It means I am able to make a living being of service to you and that’s an amazing feeling.

Thank you for being so amazing.

$I love Black Friday, you love Black Friday….we all love Black Friday:)It’s a great time to get the things you want at a price you’ll love…..what’s not to love?

This year I am offering a fantastic deal for you. Are you ready for it? Sale Starts at noon on Friday Nov. 16th

I have 35 spots available for this deal, will you be one of them?

We’ll start with hair and make up by the lovely Patricia; she’ll do an amazing makeover with just the right amount of make up and you’ll look glam and classy. I’ll stay with you the whole time and we’ll get to know each other and go over your clothing choices and choose a few favorites.

We’ll start the session and I’ll guide you through all the poses, I will tell you what to do then I tend to show you as well as I’m a visual person, I like to see what to do. I know you’ll be nervous and I’ll take my time and show you the back of my camera as we go along. I have a bed set, a couch and we’ll work our way around the room and create lots of fabulous images for you. The session usually goes 90 minutes so expect you’ll be at the studio for about 3 hours.

From there, we’ll meet again in about a week to review all the best images from your session. I’ll narrow them down and then we’ll sit together and narrow them down even further to choose the absolute best ones you love the most. You decide then which are your favorites and will choose how you want to display them. Most choose and album and an extra fun product from the list, there are lots of options. 

I know you’ll love to share you images so this year I am offering a FREE mobile app of all your PURCHASED images for free as the Black Friday booking bonus (that’s a $150.00 value)

Hair, make up and studio session is regular prices $150.00 plus tax
Bonus mobile app is $150.00

Regular price is $300.00 plus tax (saving you $231.85)

All this for only $99.00 plus tax.

Let me repeat that…..$99.00 plus tax ($113.85)

Really? YUP…..only 35 are available and I sold out last year in about 5 hours. The sale goes FRIDAY, SATURDAY AND SUNDAY or until they are gone, whichever comes first.

All products are sold separately and packages start at $395.00 plus tax

When you book a session you are agreeing to the following conditions. THE FINE PRINT

Sessions are on Tuesday and Thursday at 10am and one Saturday of the month. To be able to offer the very best customer service I take on a very limited number of clients and I book out months in advance. I realize it can be tricky to know what you’ll be doing in 6 months from now; I understand surgeries come up, you need to go out of town for work etc so I am allowing for ONE reschedule. If you need a second reschedule, you will need to pay a $50 rescheduling fee. 

All products are sold separately and are a final sale.

All sessions are to be booked and used in 2019…if for some unexpected emergency only you need to reschedule, your pricing will be at the time of booking.

Is this the year for you? Not sure if it’s for you? Head on over to our raves page and see what people are saying
Have a few more questions…send me an email at pureimages@eastlink.ca

Know you are ready to book?

To book, send an email money transfer to pureimages@eastlink.ca for $113.85 and let me know your preferred month/date.

A few months ago I had the pleasure of meeting Beth and Erik  and it was fabulous to get to know them, we chatted on the phone and soon realized we had lots in common. Like my husband and I, they wanted a bit of a lifestyle change when they started their family. Previously city dwellers, they too wanted to raise their family in a smaller town (instead of a big city) where the grass is greener because its in your own yard, the trees are in your yard and not in a park and the friendliness of small town life just can’t be beat….not to mention our fabulous beaches! Pictou County became their home, they found the perfect location and the timing was right so they’ve recently opened up a brand new family owned hearing clinic whose mission is to be the clear choice for hearing care for Pictou County. Their new office is  located at 534A East River Road, New Glasgow….take a peek and get to know Beth, Erik and their family  a bit better.

Smith Rock Chalets are incredible, Kelli is amazing (she teaches kickboxing, zumba, learn to run and now yoga (total #bossbabe))….add in a bunch of awesome women enjoying some yoga, wine, great food and friendship and you get a weekend retreat not to be missed! A few weekends ago I was asked to come and photograph Kelli’s first yoga retreat, what a blast, Namaste Kelli and all the beautiful women at the retreat, it was a beautiful evening!

There is another one in the fall and I think there may be a space or two left….the first one sold out in about two hours so make sure you book before it’s too late:)

Matt and Catherine thank you for allowing me to capture your special day. It was beautiful and intimate and it was my pleasure….xoxoxo

The day started with “the boys” with some fun images of the Matt and Trevor hanging out at Trevor’s house with Matt’s parent’s, from there off to the hotel where “the girls” Catherine and Beth were getting ready and we were joined by Catherine’s parents.

I’ve known the fabulous bride, Catherine since she was a little girl who lived up the street from me, she was a sweet and kind child then who grew up to a very sweet, kind and beautiful woman…..you have elegance well beyond your years and it was my pleasure to capture your special day!

It was a blustery but incredibly clear and sunny day and I wanted to send a special shout out to Shawna who let us use her amazing home for the formal images, its extra special because that used to be Catherine’s grandparents house…..awww, I know right?

Now that the cool fall air has arrived I finally have had 5 minutes to sit and reflect and get caught up……I’ve been on a bit of blogging hiatus, we’ve been busy living life and my blog has been a wee bit neglected.

Our fabulous summer kicked off with the very amazing wedding day of Colleen and Pete!

Friends gathered from near and far (one lovely lady came all the way from Germany!)

The sun was shining, the breeze was soft and it was magical

Love you guys, it was my pleasure!
