She is a mother, a runner, a business woman who is ridiculously in love with her husband….just to name a few of the hats this gorgeous woman wears on a daily basis.
A bit of fun, a bit of sexy and all around fun day full of awesome created just for her.
I adore you and I admire you for all that you are.
Hair and make up by the lovely Patricia Harb.
Truth be told I am always a bit nervous before a session….a mix of energy, excitement and a bit of “hop to it” ness. When local photographer Jen Parnell contacted me for a session I was equally thrilled and excited. Although I was familiar with her work, we had never met. I was delighted to chat with her on the phone, we were like a couple of old childhood friends. We laughed, we chatted and she is every bit as adorable as she seems.
She was looking for some fun Mother and Daughter images as a treat for herself and her little one. We talked about all the fun things we could do and planned what she wanted from her session.
A little of casual, a little bit of dressy and a lot of fun.
It was a pleasure to meet you and your little Miss, I am in LOVE with these images! Thank you.
It was a blustery day outside but hearts were bursting with happiness inside….welcome little Miss…..so happy to meet you.
To your child you are the best, you are most amazing person on the planet.
Exist in photographs for them, they don’t see the 10 extra pounds you think you need you loose, they don’t see the greys or the crazy mom hair and the yoga pants that have yesterday’s lunch on them.
They see a soft place to fall, they see snugly hugs, tents made from the bed sheets, the 10th book of the night and a smiling mouth that kisses those little boo-boos.
Your child thinks you are fabulous….get in the damn picture with them. You are perfect, right now.
You’ll be glad you did….

New Women in Business Spotlight! Meet Annabelle (Bella) Cameron!
You can connect with Bella:
What inspires you?
I am inspired by food, flavour, colour, nature and music.
Tell us about what your business offers?
I am a Registered Holistic Nutrition Consultant (RHN) and owner of Mindful Nutrition. I provide a whole food education to create a healthy diet but more than that I use food as a prescription to support healing processes within the body. I love that not only does my work compliment many other healing modalities, adopting a whole food life diet is a means of prevention and maintaining a healthy mind and body.
What is the best thing about being your own boss?
I love being a business owner. I can make my own decisions based on what I feel is the right thing to do. Service is the focus, people are the focus. I have been very lucky to spend the last decade of my life creating work that I love. Makes getting up in the morning so much easier. I never want to call in sick!
Tell me about some challenges you have faced?
The biggest challenge I have faced in my business is getting people to understand what it is that I do and how food can be used to support their health. Many people feel they already know how to eat healthy but there is so much in the media confusing the issue.
Thoughts on creating a work and life balance?
Well…. you better love what you do if you own your own business. It is often hard to create balance but necessary still. There is give and take. You end up spending way more that 40 hrs a week but because you are your own boss you have the freedom of setting the schedule that works for you. It allows you do make things like yoga on Wednesday mornings a priority.
What words of wisdom do you have for other women in business?
Do it! Women have the all the skills necessary to do a great job. Ask for help. Take training. It is a life long learning adventure.
Welcome Bella! Thank you for being part of our spotlight. If you are a self emplyoyed woman in Pictou County and want to connect with like minded others, please send a request to join our Pictou County Women’s Networking Events Group on Facebook. We have a networking meeting or event every month, we’d love to meet you.
It was the perfect opportunity for family photos….both set of grandparents in town at the same time, quite a feat considering one set lives on the other side of the world! With a warm hazy evening, some fabulous sunshine (which I know we are all missing now) and some really awesome people, I’m thrilled to share these with you…
Thank you for choosing me to capture these memories for you, it was my pleasure.
