Ben’s First Birthday – Gander, NL

I love the challenge of making a good photograph from what is already happening around me. (It’s what I do when I cover local events like the Terra Nova Tornadoes Christmas Ice Show or the Smallwood Days Loggers Festival and it’s often what I do when I photograph my own family.) So when the poor weather stopped me from taking portraits of Ben and his family like we had planned this fall, I was more than happy to join them at their home for Ben’s first birthday! Here are a few of the photos I took at the party!

I got great feedback on the photos from Ben’s family. I hope the pictures are some that they can enjoy for a long time! I think they are.

Traytown Family Photoshoot

Yesterday morning I had the pleasure of photographing Scott, Krista and their two kids at Salty Bay Cabins in Traytown. It was a very cool shoot for me. Not only are the Broughtons great friends, but Salty Bay Cabins is a place I drive or walk by basically every day. It’s an area I have had in my mind for portraits for a while.

We were all available, the rain held off, and the owners gave us the go-ahead! We got some results that I am really pleased with!
