I love this age…so clever, so shy yet so sure of themselves. Thank you for allowing me to capture this magical time for you.

  • Nicole - Oh Tara I am just seeing this now! Thank you so much for our fabulous Christmas photos. Cherished for years to come :)

Last week we had this very beautiful couple in our photography studio in Dartmouth for some amazing maternity images and I can’t resist sharing my favorite from their session.

7 years ago when I started my photography business I specialized in creating gorgeous black and white maternity imagery for my clients. As my clients grew, I expanded (pardon the pun) the business and began photographing their newborns who have become toddlers and are now off to school.

Creating beautiful maternity portraiture was what drew me into this art and it still thrills me. As you can see, I’ve branched out a bit and am embracing some rich color for maternity portraiture.

So thrilled to have you both in and I’m excited to show you the rest. See you on Saturday for your viewing!

It’s that time again! Hard to believe but the cool fall air is blowing in and the goblins will be out in full swing. The mall is starting to get really busy, people are out looking for back to school clothing and those with smaller ones are out looking for Halloween outfits for their cuties.

It’s become a bit of a tradition here to plan our Halloween Spooktacular…it has become so popular that I’ve received requests from clients to book their session before I had even chosen dates. I love the Spooktacular, it’s a hoot!

What is our Spooktacular you ask?

Well, we have a full day of fun; the kiddies come in costume for a mini (5-7 min) photo-shoot, they dance and play with some of the other kiddies, take a juice box and have some fun! We have the studio decorated, there is place to color and some snacks for the kids. It’s complete chaos; it’s loud and the kids are rockin’ out!  I look forward to it every year. It’s a chance to catch up with some of our regular clients as well as an opportunity to meet a few new ones.

Do I need to book an appointment?

Appointments are preferred but not necessary. We don’t mind if you come and party while you wait for your session however, making an appointment does reduce some of the wait times.

How does it work?

Come on in for your mini session and if there is time afterwards we download your files immediately and you can choose your favorite images. If time doesn’t allow for you to stay, we’ll host a mini web gallery for you.

What does it cost?

The cost is $20.00 plus tax. and that includes  3 of your favorite images in 5×7 size.

Can I choose more images?

Absolutely, each additional image is $5.00.

How do I receive the files?

The files will be emailed to you a few days later. You can print them, put them on your facebook, send them the grandma…whatever you want.

Can I get prints too?

Yes. There will be additional charge if you prefer we print them for you.

When is the Spooktacular?

Saturday October 15th from 10am-5pm. We have reserved Thurs the 13 as a possible second date if  requested. Go to our facebook page to see more images from previous years’ sessions:

Hey Everyone! We have a Spooktacular Update! We are collecting donations for Supportive Housing for Young Mothers here in Dartmouth. SHYM started as a collective idea in January 2002 by a group of concerned community members and opened their doors in the fall of 2007 when they completed renovations on their building and opened their doors to young families. We want your help in supporting this amazing program. We are asking that you donate some items for the babies and mothers who call Supportive Housing for Young Mothers (SHYM) home. We are collecting baby nail clippers, face cloths, hooded towels, sleepers, baby wash and lotion, baby butt paste, books etc. As a thank you for everyone who does bring in a donation your name will be entered into a draw for one of two $50 gift certificates for Pure Images Photography. As well, the very awesome Julie Bickford from Klassy Kids is giving one lucky person who brings in a donation a Melissa and Doug Monster Puppet! (How appropriately themed!) Thanks so much Julie, we appreciate your support!

I’ve been searching for a funkier addition to the frames we currently offer our clients. There are so many choices out there and I wanted the perfect frame for those looking for something a bit more exclusive.I believe we are the first and only portrait studio to be carrying this line (please correct me if I’m wrong but I haven’t seen them anywhere else).

They are hand crafted and made to order! The craftsmanship is amazing and I’m so thrilled to be offering these beautiful frames to those who want something very original for their artwork.

There are about 15 different styles and each style has several color options, polka dots, stripes, patterns etc… so the choices are endless!

I’ve ordered a few for clients and just received them the other day…love these! I’ll be putting another order in for the studio in a few days, drop by to visit and see these and the rest of our new fall product line, I think you’ll love them as much as I do!
