Don't Miss a Moment ~ The importance of Telling Your Family's Story

I bet I am not alone here...I say it all of the time and I hear others say it as well....my babies are growing up way too quickly.  They are changing everyday and they have these little quirky things about them that I know are not going to last very long.  

I don't want to wake up one morning and wonder what happened to all of those little moments.  You know the one....like playing with play-doh in the living room and getting it stuck to the couch or going outside to get into the van before an appointment and the baby lays down in the middle of the biggest puddle in the drive way (this actually happens way too often...you think I would have caught on by now) or the trail of clothing left on the kitchen floor because the child who is about to start school likes to strip down to her undies as soon as she gets home!

These are the things that I keep talking about.  This is what makes documentary family photography so special, so important and  so necessary.  It's your story!  No one else has a story like yours...you're moments are special.  Let's document them!

I wrote a little bit more about this as a guest post on Hello Dear Photographer.  Go on over there and have a little peek!  Don't miss a moment ;)

Sunset at Salmon Beach ~ Bathurst NB

It's not often that we get to go out without the kids in tow and this night was no exception so we made the best of it.  Our friends brought their children; they played on the beach, ran wild in the yard, bumped heads in the dark and danced their little hearts out on the deck to the guitar music!

We are so grateful for wonderful friends who are understanding and also see the need to sometimes let the kids stay up way too late and have a little summer time fun!

Thanks for the great night guys!

Pregnancy Announcment Session at Daley's Point ~ Bathurst Maternity Photographer

Lately, I have been shooting a lot of documentary and lifestyle family photo sessions in Moncton. I love those sessions to pieces but when I was asked to shoot this cute little pregnancy announcement session I was eager to see what this creative momma-to-be was going to come up with!

Momma planned out the details of how she wanted this session to go...right down to the last detail!  We met at Daley's Point in Bathurst, NB and traveled around the trails to find just the right locations!  Luckily, this family knows the trails well and let me in the right direction.

At sunset, we made our way down to the beach.  We couldn't have asked for a nicer night!

Congratulations Vanessa, Matt and Holly on this new season in life.

A Sweet Lil' Country Wedding at Blueberry Hill Farms ~ Moncton Wedding Photographer

Some of my favorite events to photograph are small, intimate weddings.  You know, the ones where you feel like part of the family by the time you leave at the end of the night?!  This country wedding was exactly like that!  We met at the house for a few portraits before heading to the venue at Blueberry Hill Farms just outside of Moncton in Elgin, NB.  Congratulations Melissa & Bruce!

Now Offering Sessions in Bathurst N.B.

My husband Dean is from Bathurst, NB.  Every summer we spend weekends up there at the camp and at his family's home.  The kids love our time at the camp because we get to cook over the fire, have s'mores every night and stay up really late watching old home movies.  We also spend a lot of time at the beach...my husband fishes for mackerel and the kids run wild.  The little ones are always begging to go to the splash park as soon as we unpack the van and the older ones can't wait to find that soft serve ice cream that comes in a million different flavors!

Since my husband is from Bathurst, we spend a lot of time there, especially in the summer and since most of our friends live there, it only makes sense for me to open up my business to include the northern part of the province.  

I am excited to already have a few family and maternity sessions booked for this summer in Bathurst, NB.  If you would like to book a maternity, newborn, family or engagement session with me, send me a message and we'll discuss which dates are available. 

I also have a few dates left for weddings for this summer.  I am looking forward to exploring where this new venture will take me!  Thank you to all of my clients for being so supportive!

A Day at the Farm! - Moncton Family Photographer

Horses have been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember.  So when my momma asked if I could take some photos of them with their horses, I was all for it!  Mom said she had never had a photo taken with her and her horse that she really loved.  That made me sad and set the bar really high!

The Stile's Family - Moncton Family Photographer

Once again I got to travel back to Elgin, NB to photograph a family session.  It has got to be one of the most beautiful spots in NB.  Late in the fall, the maple trees hang low on each side of the road forming a gorgeous archway of fall foliage to drive through!  I love this place.  This day, after I drove through the archway of maple trees, I pulled into the Stile's farm.  This is what our afternoon looked like:

Dawn + Kids & Critters - Moncton Lifestyle Family Photographer

I've had this friend for as long as I can remember.  She's the kind of friend that you get into mischief with when you are young and who will take the fall for you if the moment calls for it (thank you!) The one who always has your back even when life gets busy.  Do you know what I mean?  One of those special friends that you can go a long time with out talking to each other but easily pick up where you left off the next time you meet for coffee!

The Wilsons: A New Baby BOY!!! - Moncton Newborn Documentary Photographer

When I first spoke with this gorgeous momma, I told her about my desire to do a documentary newborn session.  I told her all of the details that are so important at this stage and how I felt like the majority of it swirls into a blur or days, diapers, tears and spilled milk.  The moments spend rocking, nursing, snuggling a new baby soon disappear and I don't know about you but the older my kids get, the less I remember unless I have something to help me trigger the memory.

The Graham's: Moncton's Next Hockey Star! - Moncton Newborn Photographer

Baby Beckett is here!  He kept everyone waiting for quite a while.  His Nanny and Uncle flew home from Alberta to be here for his birth but he was just too shy and wanted to stay tucked inside!  So, flights were changed and the family waited! He finally did decide to come out and meet his family before they had to go back out west.
