The classy and stylish Prince George Hotel and the historic Halifax Citadel. A memorable red-lipstick first kiss and groomsmen in colourful socks. A steamer that saved the day, laughter abounding and love overflowing. But mostly, a room full of people with smiling hearts who are ever-so-glad that Kathryn stepped out of character and gave Ryan her number that fateful night.  Kathryn and Ryan, here’s to your happily ever after. ♥

We booked this session for 7:30am hoping to take advantage of some beautiful sunrise light. At 6:50am Allyson called and warned me that it was realllllly foggy in Eastern Passage. I said let’s roll with it and see what happens. I’m so very glad we did. I think the foggy weather gives these photos a sense of magic. As soon as I uploaded them, I knew I was in love. The dreary weather and their sunny outfits play off each other perfectly. I asked Allyson and Jay if they minded doing their photos without the dreamy sunrise light and Jay replied that it was becoming a tradition – their wedding photos were taken on a similar day. He then joked that his Ontario family are going to wonder if the Maritime weather has ever cleared over the last ten years. Ha! Of course it has. But on this particular morning, I was happy it hadn’t.

I was very honoured when Jane asked me to do her family portraits because she herself is an amazing photographer and takes especially good photos of her four beautiful children (two sets of twins if you can believe it!). When they drove up the lane I actually got quite nervous because there’s nothing more nerve-wracking than photographing another photographer! But I didn’t need to worry. Jane and Sean were relaxed and very go with the flow (I guess you have to be with four kids!) and the kids themselves were amazing listeners and so well behaved. It was easy to tell that they’re used to being in front of a camera! Our time together was focused on getting all six of them in one shot since Jane is so often the one taking the photos. I’m very happy to have captured this gorgeous family having fun, loving and laughing together. ♥
