Friday Happiness from my yoga mat

Happy Friday!!

I am sitting here on my yoga mat with our sweet baby Linus beside me. That's right people we have a sweet baby boy that was born on August 4th 2017 at 3:13pm at the IWK. He is the sweetest and we adore him so much.

I want to let you all know that I am taking some time to hang out with my little family and figure out my new role as a mother. The good news is is that I AM taking bookings for the 2018 season!! So don't fret!! I would absolutely love to hear from you!!

Between the feeds, the cuddles and laundry. I will be TRYING to get new and updated photos onto my website. Please be patient with me while I try to get everything up and going :)

For now from my yoga mat I leave you with some quick photos of our sweetness.
Love & Laughter
B & our sweet baby Linus.

This is what happens when a photographer has a child. No matter the position, the lighting, the waiting for 2 hours...child will still end up making a silly face. Or in our case...a huge yawn in ALL photos.

The forecast for the week was rain. I watch it rolling in and there wasn't anything I could do except ask the wedding party to bring umbrellas and be prepared for rain.

Saturday August 13th I woke up at 7am and when I opened the curtains there was sun. I was never so happy to see the sun shining.

Here's a quick sneak from that amazing day.

Congratulations again guys!!

Point Pleasant Park Engagement session for Sharon & Brad

Back when I first moved to Halifax I worked at a bakery in Clayton Park called Gleneagle. Now I worked with some great gals at this bakery. One was Sharon who was the other cashier.

Fast forward to January of this year. Low and behold I receive an email from Sharon wanting me to be her wedding photographer. I couldn't say no..I didn't want to say no.

Sharon is an amazing lady. Her smile brightens up a room as soon as she walks in. I am so incredibly happy that she has found Brad. Brad is someone that you can see makes her world complete. You can see it in their eyes when they look at each other.

I'll stop getting mushy and get on with the photos.

Love & Laughter,
Bethany

ps...I'm STOKED to be their wedding photographer. I am BEYOND words that they found me after all these years. :)
 

Mothers Day Mini Sessions

We should celebrate our mothers more than just once a year. We should celebrate them each and every day. 

Our mothers are here for us in the good, the bad and the ugly. Our mothers soothe us when days are hard. Our mothers are the hand we hold when times are hard. Our mothers are a warm hug on those cold winter nights.

I cherish my momma. I cannot and do not ever want to live without her. She is one of the strongest women I have even seen. She has been through the toughest battles with three children along her side the whole day. 

What is a better way to celebrate mothers day then with a mini photo session!

Please contact me for more information about my mini photo sessions. I will be extending the promo until the end of May. The reason why...simply look at the snow that's still on the ground.

I'm sure you are all wondering what comes with this awesome Mothers Day mini session. Well...first off it's a $200.00 savings. Which is AMAZING!

30-45 minute professional photography session at Public Gardens or Point Pleasant Park.
Online viewing gallery - that you can send to family and friends!
5 images on disc/usb

I would love to hear from you!

ps...I saw my first robin bird today. Spring is hopefully right around the corner!
 

 

Halifax Naturopathic Health Centre

Life is all about journeys.

I find myself in an inspiring place in my life at the moment. I have my amazing photography business that I am so grateful to have. I also have my energized office admin job at Halifax Naturopathic Health Centre. Having both of these amazing things in my life definitely motivates me to be a better person.

The women that I work with at Halifax Naturopathic are absolutely hand down amazing. They all bring something great to the table for their patients and to the women they work with.  These Naturopathic Doctors will go beyond anything you have seen to find out the what's and why's to what might be going on with your health. They will absolutely do their research and pull from one another any information that one might have on a certain topic or goal. 

Without a doubt I would 100% give Halifax Naturopathic Health Centre a try as you will be amazed at what they will find with your health. They will set goals and help you along every step of the way with getting your health back on track.

I had the pleasure of photographing these great women for the Dec 2014 Fine Lifestyle Magazine


Many thanks to HNHC ND's 
Love,

Kings University E-Session : Jessica + Mike

The story began for these two over 10 years ago at Kings University. 

I met Jessica and Mike at Public Gardens for their engagement session. Where we took a stroll through the gardens and found some great little spots. As the sun was starting to creep closer towards the tree line we headed off the Dalhousie and Kings

Throughout the whole session you could see the love in both their eyes.  My heart melted every time Mike held Jessicas hand or slid to her waist because you could see in each move how much he adores her.

Scouting locations and ducks!

I normally venture out to scout a location by myself but Cory is awesome with helping me. Hands down.  He loves heading out on little photo adventures with me, which is amazing! 
At the end of the evening I found some great little locations for my engagement session that I have around the corner. I also got to spend some awesome time with Cory, which is always a plus in my books.

I'm not too sure what is so exciting up in the trees.

A recipe of Love

I really need to start taking images each and every day. I also need to blog at least once a week. Blogging takes time to make it right ... kind of like baking. I can't bake. I have always been told everything you bake will come out much better if you make it with love.

"Think of something you love while you're backing." 

I have taken this little recipe of love and I am applying it to my images I create and my blog posts. I may not get it correct each and every time. I'm sure it will get easier as the days go by.

Our tubby kitty. I love her even though she loves Cory more. I believe he loves me in her own simple kitty way.

Toronto I miss you.

It's been a year since Cory and I went to Toronto. There was ALOT of firsts for me on that trip.

  • Being on an airplane...yes...I have NEVER been on one before
  • Going to the Toronto ZOO and seeing so many awesome animals. I have always been a person against ZOOs and animals being caged in, but they do an amazing job with giving the animals enough space.
  • The subway. Oh the way...I loved it.

Koren & Chad August 9th 2014

I had been watching the weather all week as a hurricane was coming upon us.  As I parked my car this past Saturday I watched the rain as it started to beat down. Within a span of 15 minutes buckets of rain poured down and then it just stopped. The sun came out with little puffy clouds in the sky. I held my breath with hope that it would hold off until after the ceremony.

Koren and Chard are some of the most warmest and welcoming people i have met. I was honoured to photograph their personal wedding at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.  Koren and Chad got married with their fathers photos to the right of them as their family and friends surrounded them in the gallery at the museum.

You could see that Koren and Chad had put every bit of them into their wedding from the colours, details, chair selection to the personal vows they read. You both are truly amazing people.

Here's a quick little peek from their wedding day. Congratulations again Koren & Chad!! 

 

Thank you again for letting me photograph your beautiful day.

Your old traditional made 100% you for your wedding day.

Yes I am a photographer (mainly weddings) but I do love absolutely everything about weddings. From hearing the couple talk about their small details right to the colour of shoes that the bridesmaids will be wearing on the special day.
When I came across this "Something Blue" on www.stylemepretty. I knew that this would be a great place for those brides that still do the old traditions of.  

"Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a silver sixpence in her shoe."

Call me old fashion with this one but I do love it and you can certainly make it 100% you. So come on brides think of your tradition that you would like to bring to your wedding. Make it totally you!

Love & Laughter
