There is nothing more beautiful than to see new life before and shortly after they’ve entered the world. Life truly is so precious and exceptional.
There is nothing that warms my heart more than photographing a special family who means so much to me! Love these 4 so much and I adored how excited they all were… including Dad… for their time in the spotlight. And I would be a very happy person if I were able to photograph families in this beautiful location every single day.
Sometimes I feel so incredibly lucky. It might be a quiet tea at my kitchen table while watching the tiniest snow flakes fall from the sky or when my baby holds my hand at the store and walks calmly with me while we shop. And then sometimes it’s when beautiful people with the kindest hearts enter my life. People who I would never meet if not for photography. People who live a literal world apart from me. This amazing Mama has the biggest heart and I feel so blessed to know her… so lucky indeed.
We travelled to Walt Disney World back in September. We had the time of our life with the kids. Once Courtney gets our family vacation video together I promise to share it. We can’t wait to go back…. would love to tomorrow if we could!
While we there, Mr Oliver and his Mommy and Daddy were vacationing at the same time. We thought it would be the perfect opportunity to document this year’s family photos. There is no feeling in the world like when you are visiting “Mickey’s Castle” (as Will calls it). Every stress and worry you have disappears. You feel so relaxed and happy and just so present in your life. I hope that these images will give this gorgeous family that reminder every time they look at them.
It’s hard for me to think of Nova Scotia and not imagine our shoreline. If I had to dream up the most perfect evening on the beach I don’t think it would come close to the pastel ocean and cotton candy skies that we experienced on this evening. It will always be my most cherished season…
I have so many people write wondering about the boys and wanting to see how much they’ve grown lately so I thought I would share some photos from Halloween last night. Will’s favourite movie right now is Toy Story and Wes not really caring much for movies is happy to go along with whatever big brother wants. Will also tends to like the off-beat characters in movies and his favourite right now are the aliens from Toy Story and, of course, his beloved Mr Potato Head. Needless to say, the boys were pumped to go trick-or-treating last night. They had such a great time and so did Mama and Daddy. Life is busy here but so, so, so wonderful! Thank you to all who have been writing inquiring how things are… xo
