What happens when an earth goddess and a rock star meet? They fall in love and raise two adorable dudes on the most amazing little farm.  Not quite an hour outside of  Dartmouth, NS, we (Joe, Hudson and I) packed up and headed out for an on location shoot on the farm.  I’ve been so excited to show these images, enjoy!

As the mother of a rough and tumble toddler, I often forget how amazingly quiet and relaxed a newborn can be. We had the beautiful Miss A in the studio a few weeks ago, her Mom and Dad were here to show her off to the family and enjoy Race Week. A good snooze allowed for some great images, enjoy your sneak peek.

It’s been ages since I’ve posted…it’s I’ve been so crazy busy at the studio that blogging has taken a back seat. The studio renovations are mostly done; the painting is completely finished (finally) our new collections are going to be put up on the walls in the coming week and we are diligently working on the new website. It’s like my life; a work in progress! With a toddler at home, everything takes a bit longer these days so it will be done when it is done.

Here is a quick peek from an adorable family whom I have the pleasure of photographing this past week, I promised a sneak peek, so here it is.

Enjoy!

Sleepy family time…

  • Brian Lake - Thank you so much for this wonderful photo. It turned out amazing! I really enjoy how it captures our everyday moments of snuggling at home at yet makes it far more elegant.

  • Laura Lake - You make every picture show just how we act and live as a family. I love how you capture not just the picture, but the mood and personality. We have some nice pictures but this is a top pick! Thanks so much!

All summer we have been working on our new website/brochures/packaging etc and we are just about finished of everything. As  the “chief bottle washer and cook”, lately I find I am doing all the marketing/branding/website updating at home and as a result our new look has taken a bit longer than I expected. In a way, that’s a good thing because it means I’ve been too busy at the studio during the day to be able to cross things off of my to-do list.  One of those things on the list was a new logo.  You know that expression “I’ll know it when I see it”? Well, that and a few adjectives was most of the direction I gave our designer.  Not exactly the ideal client I know, but I knew more of what I didn’t want than what  I did want, I just knew I would know it when I seen it. I searched high and low to find a designer whose style I loved and was so happy to have found the wonderful Taz and had her design a new logo for our studio. I love, love, love it. It’s exactly what I wanted. Now that it is finished our new packaging will be following soon. So excited about all the new stuff going on at the studio. Here is our new logo.Yippee…now that our packaging is almost finished, our next big announcement will be our promotions for the holidays. Please keep checking back for details of our October Spooktacular as well as our new November Extravaganza! Bursting to tell you but I can’t until I finalize the dates.

At only 6 days old, little JP has already stolen several hearts (mine included).

We (my awesome assistant Andrea and I) had the pleasure of going on location this week to J and M’s home to welcome their new arrival with his very own photo shoot. We stayed well into the afternoon and have lots of great images to share form our session. Here are a few of my favorites.We had an amazing morning, thanks to big sister E for helping out and to the proud parents, thanks so much and enjoy! Please be aware Daddy was very close at hand for these images, do not try this at home.

  • Sabrina Thurlow - Hey, love the natural lighting! I especially enjoy the sleeping baby wearing the little hat.

This is the third beauty from a wonderful family; you may have seen her newborn photos with Daddy on display at Atlantic Photo this past month. It amazing how fast the time goes because little Miss T is now one. I photographed all three girls at different ages and I love how unique each one is. It’s obvious they are siblings but they are all little bits of mommy, little bits of daddy and a bit of themselves. Here are a few from her one year images. Such a big girl, yet still so small. Also, an amazing image of beautiful big sister who was a great help to mommy.
