Capturing life the way it is right now. Monkey bars, canoeing on the lake, tossing the mini football, story time. Parents sneaking in some alone time?… okay, we called in reinforcements and set that one up.
A sunny morning on the lake, paddle-boarding, boating, being chased by silly kittens… fun!
As AG and I drove towards Sackville from Fredericton, and Allison & Jason drove towards Sackville from Nova Scotia, each of us admired the huge, dark and puffy clouds in the sky. Yet it wasn’t raining… until we got to Sackville, where it was pouring. Because of course. Luckily in the time it took to devour one giant schnitzel, the storm pushed through. We were left with amazing evening light, and our feet only got a little bit wet!
Last minute bridesmaid dress shopping. Shooting pool and shooting beer. Two first looks. Chasing rain showers and driving into a rainbow. Tearing around Stanley at won’t-say-how-fast. Crossword puzzles and maple syrup. Late night fireworks. “Everything.“
These two hadn’t been alone in years. (Or something like that.) Sure made my job easy!
A Thursday afternoon wedding with beer, barbecue, family and friends. Last minute fishing fly-tying for the forgotten boutonniere. On-site cake assemblage. Afterparty. Alex & Sean kept it short and sweet. We all laughed a lot. Perfect.
Blueberries & lace. Beau the ringbearing dog. A mid-day pit stop at the Snooty Fox for beer and nachos. Tin cans trailing the just-married-mobile. A slow clap. Buckley family singers. The locomotion weaving its way through the reception hall. (The reception hall being the very same place they first met.) Teary-eyed slideshows. A father-daughter-mother-daughter dance to Matt’s version of Daughters. “Sparks.” Macarena macking and a dance sandwich with the groom as the meat. In sickness & in health. Amy & Matt.
I met the Michaud family on a cool and grey morning recently. The glassy river and view of downtown was a wonderful backdrop to playing with rocks, getting swung around, toddling through the grass, and getting shoulder rides from Mom & Dad…
Finally home from Edmonton, Catherine & Marc finally met up with me on Monday morning for their engagement session… not a moment too soon, as they’re getting married this Saturday!
The whole time I was having nightmares of falling into the pool in the Dickerson’s gorgeous backyard. Fortunately, while some did end up fully dressed and soaking wet, it thankfully wasn’t me.
