Earlier this summer I had the opportunity to hang out and shoot some branding images for the amazing Alyssa Valletta Bustin, owner of Flavour Photo and Alyssa Joy Photography. Alyssa moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia all the way from Nashville, Tennessee this year and I am so happy our paths crossed! Not only have I had the chance to work with her on weddings here (and pick her brain on how to create the perfect cheese board), but I am lucky enough to call her a friend!
Alyssa’s style has a lot of film influence (she shoots film too, guys!) so I kept that in mind when creating these branding images for her. We shot these in her cozy Halifax apartment, with copper, wood, and greenery accents (and a crocodile skull to boot). Scroll through to see more from this session! Read More
After a whirlwind of a weekend (2 weddings and a glamorous boudoir session!), it was a nice surprise to find out I’ve been featured in this month’s PICTON Magazine! This set was a collaboration with local artist Jossie Cameron of Jossie’s Herbal Healing, model Hayley Maddison of Soli Productions, and makeup artist and YouTube makeup guru Meghan Lawlor Makeup and I am so thrilled with the images we created.

At the end of March, I met up with model and blogger Sehmat Suri from City Models and Nadia Dajani, stylist, blogger (Every Wear I Go) and co-owner of The Shop Splurge to create this colorful downtown fashion shoot.
I’ve been sitting on these images until I was able to announce… we were published this month in SHUBA Magazine! Here are some of my favorite shots from our collaboration. Read More
Chelsey Belliveau Photography and I became internet friends a while back, since we are both wedding photographers here in Nova Scotia. Although we’ve chatted endlessly, we only met for the first time back in April! This month, Chelsey made the trek from Yarmouth to Halifax for her birthday celebration and we squeezed in a mentorship session while she was here. Read More
At the end of March, I had the pleasure of meeting up with the phenomenal Meghan Lawlor Makeup for a quick branding shoot at her home and studio in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Meghan is such a warm, wonderful person and we spent more time chatting than shooting - she’s so easy to talk to, along with being incredibly talented. She even does tutorials for those who need some extra tips in the makeup department (hello, me!) that you can watch here. We snapped a few with her sweet partner, Chris, too!

I was finally able to access my contest results from the international Shoot & Share contest (photographer friends, you know what I’m talking about!).

This was my first year entering, and I am so thrilled to share my results! Out of the 15 images I entered, 2 placed in the top 20% of images and 2 placed in the top 30%.
