Engagement Photography in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia

I admit it, sometimes as a photographer (and, yes, a person) I am not at my most eloquent.  Luckily for me, Blair seemed to automatically understand what my intentions were, just from a few random words and gestures.  I would say something like, “Can you step…” and gesture towards Carly, and he would sweep in, and wrap her in his arms.  Or, “A little more,” and he would squeeze her even closer, before I had finished my sentence.  Yes!  That’s exactly what I meant. That’s pretty much exactly what I always mean.

Plus, we had a lovely, overcast but rain-free day over in Annapolis Royal for this engagement shoot, reminding me once again why I love those gloomy grey days (and I’m sure it has nothing to do with growing up in the West Coast) – check out these colours.  They make my heart sing.  Just like these two.  I can’t wait for your wedding, Carly and Blair – enjoy your Sneak Peek!

Lauren, gorgeous colours and connection and compositions!!!

Annapolis Royal Family Session – a day at Fort Anne

Often, as a photographer, you find yourself in a bit of a hurry-up-and-wait kind of situation.  You see a possibility, frame it the way you want, expose for the light, and then wait.  You wait for that magical moment when something happens, and the picture becomes more than you even hoped it could be.  There were lots of nice shots in this series, but this one, for me, is that moment:

Of Course, with a family as wonderful as this one, magical moments were happening all over the place.  Thanks so much for inviting me back, you guys – I hope we can do it again next year!  Enjoy your Sneak Peek:

Love your site and pics Lauren. Very professional. I am an old friend of Ivy and Ray from EPA days.

Archie’s Newborn Gallery – Annapolis Valley Family Photography

It’s always a joy, as a photographer, when I get to follow a family as they grow and change.  I had the pleasure of photographing Stacey and Craig’s gorgeous family, when they were just three.  And I couldn’t have been more delighted when they got in touch to let me know they were expecting baby #2!  Truly, how could I not love my job, knowing that I have some small part in capturing a family’s precious moments.  Plus, I get to meet some amazing people, big and small:)

I love your eye in sessions like these, blonde curls on the floor, macaroni on a little table, you are painting this time in their lives.

Angela & Scott – Love in the Annapolis Valley

Angela and Scott’s tent wedding was very much a homegrown affair.  She got ready at her parent’s house, they got married in her Father’s church – by her Father! – and had the reception in the tent set up on her parent’s amazing property in the heart of the Annapolis Valley.  The family was involved in other ways, as well – with home-baked buns (yum!) and a selection of home-made salads.  The home-made dessert by Scott’s sister deserves, I think, a special mention for being quite possibly the tastiest dessert I have ever had in my life. Ever.  Plus, check out that cake!  It’s gorgeous, and Angela made that sweet little topper all by herself.  Seriously clever bunch, I tell you.  Add to that: laughter, happy tears, sweet embraces, and a kiss or several, and I am one happy and grateful photographer.  Thanks for having us, you guys – enjoy your Sneak Peek!

Such a calm way you have of describing weddings in your photographs, picking up on the smallest detail, the slightest gesture.

Leanne & Jeff – Dartmouth Wedding Photography

Leanne & Jeff celebrated their wedding on a beautiful grey day this September (you know I love those grey days – look at these colours!)  They chose Brightwood Golf Course in Dartmouth, NS, for the ceremony and reception, and it was beautiful, as you can see.  The whole day was wonderful – Leanne was so sweet, and Jeff was so into her – exactly what every wedding photographer hopes for when they arrive.  It was really hard to choose just a few photos to tell the story of this beautiful day, so I just chose some of my favourite moments.  You can probably tell I’m a little bit in love with both of them! I think I’m in good company – I’m pretty sure every single person who attended this wedding is a little bit in love with both of them:)
