How the current Covid-19 Pandemic is affecting your booking


Due to the current Coronavirus Pandemic we have stopped booking appointments as of March 6, 2020.

We will continue to monitor the Nova Scotia Government Web Site to determine when we will be open for new bookings.

We are in the process of contacting our customers who have booked a wedding or event in the coming months to address any concerns they may have.

Stay safe and please follow the recommended guidelines so that we can get through this crisis as soon as possible.

Looking for a Print or Canvas

We can provide more than just digital files from your photo shoot with us.

Not everyone has the tools to work with a photo lab to bring your digital image to life on a print or canvas. So we have provided a “pricing page” for your reference to make it stress free to obtain a print or canvas of your favorite moment from your photo shoot.

We do not mark up the prices from the photo lab and only charge a $10 admin fee per order for this service.

If you are looking for something that’s not included on our pricing page just “contact us” and provide us with the details, remember we are here to help you with what you want and make it as easy and simple as possible.

There is nothing better than seeing your precious moment in your favorite spot at home or office to relive that special memory every day.

Just let us know we’ll be happy to help.

On Location Portraits

Summertime is a great opportunity to go out to a local beach and shoot some on location portraits. People enjoy getting outside and having fun on the beach, and why not take some photos at the same time. You can have a portrait taken posed, with or without props, or just have some lifestyle photo journalistic photos taken while spending your time at the beach. Above the photo was taken using a white semi-translucent umbrella as a prop creating a soft light on our model at the same time.

Even in harsh sunlight conditions, there are techniques to help make a great portrait. We also take our studio mono lights out on location to help with those difficult lighting conditions.

We chose a local beach that typically does not have many people to have an unobstructed view of the ocean and beach in the background. The harsh sunlight provided some nice hair light and we also used our studio mono light to provide fill light for her face and upper body to bring her out of shadow.

Doing an on location portrait shoot requires a bit of planning and a little help from mother nature for the weather to cooperate. We also suggest taking a few portraits in our studio before going out on location. Safety is the foremost consideration doing any outdoor photo shoot which we take very seriously.

Summertime is a great time to consider having your portrait taken, it’s a time where family gets together while on vacation and a time to create those precious memories that will never be forgotten. As the years pass by we realize that family and our life memories are what is most important.

Contact us to book your next portrait session as the end of summer is drawing to a close. If the remaining part of your summer is too busy you can always always consider having your portrait taken with the beautiful fall colours.
