Greenwood Newborn Photography – Baby Effie

Oh, Baby Effie.  I think it is impossible to spend time with baby Effie, and not fall in love with her a little bit.  I bet by the end of this post, you will be in love with her a little bit, too!    Look at these photos, all curled up like an egg, or making a little heart with her two tiny hands, and those tiny toes, and you know I could go on.  Or, just look at the way her family looks at her.  One of the things that I love about newborn sessions is that they always take me back a little bit, to when my own two were so small.  Now, don’t get me wrong, every baby is different, and every baby has a mind of their own (don’t let anyone tell you different!) but there is also something universal about a newborn baby.  Something wonderful.  Something that makes you want to stop doing anything else, and just look.

Hi Lauren, I am Ambres mom. I am coming to NS in march and I would like to have a surprise baby shower for Ambre. She has never had a shower held for her. I want this to be a surprise. Would you be able to help me by inviting people? I would really appreciate your help. You can email me @

Brittany & Stephen – an Anniversary Shoot in Canning – Annapolis Valley Photography

When Brittany and Stephen got in touch with me to see if I might be interested in coming up to Canning to do anniversary photos for them on the property where they were married, I jumped at the chance.   We got out at the most amazing cabin and property, right on the cliffs overlooking the Bay of Fundy.  Gorgeous views, weathered wood, beautiful architectural details – I was pretty darn happy.  Then Brittany asked if we still had time to go to the farm down the road. Um, yes.  There’s always time for farm pictures!  Thanks for showing me around, and being such a fun couple, you two!  Enjoy your Sneak Peek!

A-dorable! Nice compositions Lauren :)

Samantha & Brian – Kentville Engagement Photography

How is it possible that I have never been to the Research Station in Kentville?  Now that I have been, everyone is telling me that it’s a very popular place to do photos.  Really?!?  Well, now I know.  And I know why, too.  Samantha and Brian, I am so glad you guys chose to bring us all there.  And SO glad that you brought along Dozer and Timber, too.  What a lovely family you  have started.  I just had so much fun doing this shoot, with the long grass, and the fall leaves, and the big (BIG) dogs.  It was hard to pick just a couple to share with you here, but here they are – needless to say, I am SO excited for the wedding next summer!

Great compositions and love the yellow pops of colour!

Matt & Ashley – Annapolis Valley Wedding Photography

It was over a year ago when Matt and Ashley and I got together to do their engagement photos, so I’ve been looking forward to this wedding for a while!  It was definitely worth the wait, too.    It was a veritable list of so many things I love – home-made touches, amazing colours, stunning flowers (seriously, I am in love with these flowers!), fall leaves, pumpkins, apple cider, a private apple orchard (be still my heart!), a big crowd of people who love them, and two people who absolutely light up when they’re together.  Hooray!

There were so many photos to love, this is just a little taste here.  Enjoy your Sneak Peek!

Absolutely stunning.

Michael & Selina – Lunenburg Wedding Photography

Michael & Selina got married in Lunenburg, on the beautiful South Shore of Nova Scotia.  It was lovely to spend a little more time in Lunenburg, a place I’ve always admired, getting to know these two and their wonderful friends and family.  From their getting ready shots at the Luneburg Arms Hotel, to the ceremony in the bandstand in the middle of town, to the reception at the Lunenburg Curling Club, everything was  intimate and sweet, and it was quite clear that these two are well-loved by their friends and family.  Cake + Pie.  Love it!
