An Afternoon With an East Coast Mermaid! ~ Moncton Photographer Tara Geldart

Have you been following along with the East Coast Mermaid Blog?  I promise, you'll be pleasantly delighted!  Her East Coast adventures and seaside tales are super inspiring and will have you itchin' for a local vacay!

I met with Crystal from East Coast Mermaid for a coffee a few months back and we chatted about local business and how some really great things can come from something so unexpected!  

If things start happening, don’t worry...don’t stew. Just go right along and you’ll start happening too
— Dr. Seuss

A few weeks after our initial meeting, we met downtown Moncton and strolled the streets, climbed to a rooftop and stopped at a nearby Starbucks.  Crystal shared her favorites from our Moncton lifestyle photography session on her blog today along with a fabulous review and a Promo Code.

Head on over to her blog and fall in love with her mermaid tales!

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!

High School Senior ~ Grad Sessions

The 2016 grad year is a wrap!  It was such a beautiful year for grad photos...beautiful weather, beautiful flowers, beautiful grads!  

I have been anxiously awaiting for grad ~ senior photos to catch on in this part of the world like they have in other countries and they finally seem to be!  And for good reason!  Senior portraits help mark one of the most pivotal milestones in your life.  This time between childhood and adulthood.  You've worked for years to earn that diploma and you have the world at your feet.  If there was ever a time to have your portrait taken, it is now!  Besides, you'll never be this young and carefree ever again...that translates into some gorgeous photos and a reason to celebrate what makes you stand out from the rest of your graduating class!

This spring I was asked by @Julie Audoux Photographie if I was interested in shooting a senior session with her in an apple orchard...in full bloom!  Of course I was interested!  We had 5 senior girls from Ecole Mathieu-Martin in Dieppe, NB meet us at the orchard for a cute little sunset portrait session.

Congratulations grads of 2016!   

Now booking grads of 2017 in the Moncton & Bathurst NB areas. Contact me today to book your portraits!

Country Grad Session...with a Pony!

My baby sister graduates this year.  It hardly seems possible.  So much has happened to fill up these last 18 years but at the same time, it feels like just yesterday that she came home from the hospital.  There's a 14 year age difference between us so I remember all of the details of her early life.  How sweet and vibrant she has always been...How since the moment she came home from the hospital, she has been in the barn helping with chores!  

This girl was fearless when it came to anything that had to do with horses.  Often we would find this little toddler in the middle of 6 horses out in the pasture trying to snap on a lead line and go for a walk.  She couldn't actually use the snap so she would just wrap the lead around the horses' halter and they would follow her where ever she went!  We were terrified whenever this happened...she was the happiest when she was with the horses.

Congratulations Lisa!  I am sure you will shine and continue to be fearless no matter what you choose to do!

Documentary Family Photo Session with the Mortons ~ Moncton, NB Photographer

Hair in a ponytail, no make-up, kid's pick out their own clothes and dad is thrilled not to have to sit pretty; this is the type of photo session that just makes sense!  

Jenna Morton at Pickle Planet Moncton and her family share the same vision.  The moments worth documenting are the everyday things that often go unnoticed or taken for granted.

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 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.
