I’m not sure I’ve ever embraced November the way I did this year! I enjoyed a bunch of fun shoots, and also finished editing ALL of my client work! That means the blog got pretty busy, as I shared Geneva + Tim’s Simpson-y wedding, and Jill + Dan’s Moncton soirée, plus those portraits: engagements with Corinne + Adrien and Melanie + Jon; meeting babies with Hannah, Theron, and Amara and Matéo and the Bourgeois family; and going on a beverage tour of downtown Fredericton with Steve + Lydia because why not?!
The weather was mostly good, so I made sure to take plenty of walks and capture the fall scenes in my new neighbourhood. Niece snuggles, Darlene Love, watching the chickadees outside my window, and drinking pot after pot of tea. November saw the first weekend that AG & I spent in our new home with no shoots, travel, or illness since we moved, and that weekend was soooo relished! At the same time, we’re learning that homeownership takes up tons of time! Getting our yard cleaned up, decorating, and preparing for winter are new and exciting ways to spend those precious daylight hours outside.
These last few days have seen a big shift towards “holiday magic,” and I am so looking forward to doing more of what I’m doing at this exact moment: sitting snug in the rocking chair, cat squeezed in next to me, beside the glow of the tree.
No special occasion and no schmoopy stuff: Steve + Lydia were back in town and just wanted some shots of them having fun and hanging out at some of their favourite places. Cheers to that!

Two months after reading some beautiful words at our wedding, Carly + Janice’s Christmas card dropped a bomb – they’d been secretly expecting! Since then it has been a loooong year to get to my first meeting with the delicious Matéo. Years from now, these images will be a great memento of that one developmental stage where babies discover their tongues.

This fall I made a concerted effort to take my camera out and look for images, a task made easier by also being an exploration of my new neighbourhood. Unfortunately except for a few shots on Instagram, I never actually edited or shared any! With snow in the forecast and the gleam of our brand new Christmas lights shining through my window — yes already, yes I’m that person — there’s no time left to waste. Here’s to fall.

Hannah + Theron gave me one of the best experiences of my professional life to date, and catching up with them and their new +1 was a real joy. But tough too, since I just wanted to squeeze them the whole time!

Mountie pride. The things Dan is sure about. Watching “Bridesmaids” on a loop. The giant game of Monogamy. Crashing City Hall. When your junior high diary gets the dramatic reading treatment. Most epic Best Man speech/personalized remake of “Piano Man” I’ve ever heard. Treat yoself. Dancing to “I’m So Glad,” enveloped in raindrops and bubbles.

Seeing each other for the first time outside of the building where they met. Hugging to keep warm in the crisp autumn air. The younger brother’s original wedding composition. Simpsons references galore: “A Whale of a Wife.” Squirrels, squirrels, squirrels! Twerking on the dance floor. “Wild Is The Wind.” Little lawyers in love!
