Meghan Lawlor Makeup Branding Session | Halifax Portrait Photographer

Meghan Lawlor Makeup Branding Session | Halifax Portrait Photographer

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!

Katherine & Roger's Cozy In-Home Engagement Session | Halifax Wedding Photographer

Katherine and Roger are getting married in September 2019 (I can’t wait to be there to photograph it!), and these two didn’t want to wait until the spring for their engagement session! When Katherine suggested an in-home session, I was thrilled - partially because I knew their adorable pup, Murphy, would be hanging out with us too. Katherine is an amazing baker, and I loved this idea because it really gives a glimpse into how her and Rog hang out at home. Plus, I got to take the cookies home!
