Video Fused Moncton Newborn Session

I love introducing new products and services.  I have a few projects in the works but I just cant keep this one to myself anymore!  

Last week I shared photos from a Lifestyle Newborn Session.  During that session, on a complete whim, I shot a few clips of video.  I wanted to capture those little gestures and quiet moments that sometimes can be forgotten over time.  The video clips fused with the photos in a custom made slideshow brings the session to life!

These little gems will be added in the session packages this fall/winter (2016).  I can't wait to create custom family videos for your family!  Click the Play button and enjoy :)

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!

Moncton Documentary Family Photographer ~ First Riding Lessons of The Year

When I was a teenager, my little sister Lisa who was then only a toddler, would get on the horse with me and would refuse to get off.  I mean, she would make me take her around and around and around the pasture.  After hours of sheer boredom (cause what can you really do with a 2yro in the saddle with you) I would throw her off to mom only to listen to her cry because she didn't get to ride long enough.  Ha!

Well,  it has come full circle!  My babies do the same thing to her now.  Full on tantrums when they don't get to ride as long as they feel they should!  She can deal with it...I'll just stand back and photograph the memories!

Here she is juggling my youngest while trying to teach the older one!

Sulking by the tree because she has to wait her turn!  Oh, the terrible two's!

She made a break for it under the fence...she made it half way across the arena before we caught her!  She's pretty upset now!  May have thrown her rubber boots!

She finally gets her turn!

These two do not care too much for the horses...but maybe I should look into getting them on the wrestling team...

Moncton Newborn Baby + Lifestyle Family Photography Session ~ The Hemsworths

This session is a bit of a hybrid; it's a newborn + lifestyle family session!  I got together with this beautiful family to document the moments that make this time in their lives special.  With a brand new baby boy and a 2 year old little girl (and I haven't forgotten Ebony the Black Lab!) these guys have a lot going on in their day to day lives and I wanted to create images that were reflective of this time for them.

To document their current lifestyle with their new baby, we spent most of our time quietly hanging out in the  playroom and living room.  Big sister wanted to show me a few things in the playroom, so we started in there and let her lead the rest of the session.  Baby G hardly made a sound the entire time so he was pretty cool with the whole process!

I must say though, that big sister totally stole my heart!  I cannot believe that she is only 2!  She is quite the character.  I thoroughly enjoyed my time with her and her family.

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!

Tess and Babies - Moncton Lifestyle Family Photographer

I really wasn't sure what to expect when I arrived for this lifestyle family session in Elgin, NB.  I had been there before (It's my favorite place to drive around aimlessly!) but I wasn't so sure about how early the sun disappeared behind the mountain in the evening.  I was actually very nervous; I know that mom was excited for the family session and I didn't want to disappoint her.

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.
