Who knows you better than a sister? Sisters share a bond that goes so very far beyond the pettiness of daily mishaps that are an inevitable part of growing up.  When push comes to shove, a sister will always have your back and will be the first to come to your side when times get rough.  They share a special language that doesn’t require words.  A sister can tell what you are thinking before you even know you are thinking it and and know just what you need before you think you actually need it.  Despite their differences (and there will always be differences) they are more alike than anyone else in the world and share  a love and bond that goes beyond time and age.

Please join me with a look back at the last days of this summer past when I spent two beautiful evenings with these gorgeous ladies. They have the most beautiful eyes and smiles that light up the sky. They were such troupers, (trudging through muddy fields of flowers that towered  over their heads, and swarms of tiny biting insects at the beach) and were perfect little models for me as I  photographed a few moments of their beautiful sisterhood.

Aren’t they stunning?

Cassie & Kate – A Winter Solstice Wedding Proposal

Surprise, suspense, romance, laughter and lots of love- this photo shoot had it all.

I was first contacted by Kate way back in September about the possibility of a photo shoot during Christmas Break.  Normally I don’t book anything during the holidays, but this was not your typical photo shoot she was planning.

Kate works in Alberta and her girlfriend Cassie goes to school in Antigonish (Nova Scotia).

When Kate flew home at Christmas she wanted to surprise Cassie with a photo shoot (that Kassie had been wanting for some time) that would take place while they were on a weekend trip to Halifax (Cassie’s favourite city) and sometime during the said photo shoot, Kate was planning on proposing!

I couldn’t say no to a plan like that and after lots of planning and even more hoping for good weather, December 21, the shortest day of the year arrived and on the Winter Soltice, in their favourite city, Kate asked Cassie to be her wife…. and as you can see below, she said yes!

Please take a look below at their beautiful afternoon.  As the time passed, their initial shyness dissolved and their true personalities emerged. They so obviously adore each other and also have an amazing sense of humour that was contagious.  I feel so honoured to have played a small part in this special day for them.  Despite the really cold weather, (it was freezing) the love and the warmth in the air was undeniable and I’m sure you will be as charmed with this sweet couple as I was.

Beautiful little one.  You were longed for, hoped for and dreamed about long before you joined us.

You are greatly loved.

Sweet Owen came to see me all the way from Charlottetown.  He needed a bit of extra care for the first few weeks of his wee life and wasn’t able to make the trip until he was almost a month old.  At nearly four weeks, he was the oldest baby that I have had for a “newborn” session.  With his sweet mommy’s help and patience we managed to get some adorable images of this handsome little prince.

Christmas Surprise

I got to experience some Christmas magic today.

-Cassie thought that the photo shoot was her early Christmas gift.

She had no idea that it was part of a much bigger plan.

One that was months in the making and involved a very beautiful ring and a question that will change her life for ever.

Thanks so much for letting me document this very special day for you and sending a huge congratulations on your engagement.
