Growing Out On A Limb

Family Photos by Shari


I have been slow to get these up for no other reason than life is busy.

A few weeks ago my good friend Shari came for a visit.  She is an amazing photographer based in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  Seriously, check out her photos at  She has a brilliant eye for settings and lighting and does the most amazing wedding photos I have ever seen.  Though she doesn’t usually do family shoots anymore, I asked her to try and capture the four of us as  a favor.  We have never had professional photos before because we both consider ourselves hobby photographers but with one of us behind the camera a shot of all of us is difficult at best.  She kindly agreed in exchange for a meal… done deal!

She got a few of the boys that morning when we were hiking the Shikatehawk trail and throwing rocks in the water.

This one cracks me up!  Oliver crouched down to pick up a rock and got his bum all wet… priceless!

We took the family shots later on.  Oliver wasn’t terribly cooperative due to the time of day but I think Shari managed to get a few really great ones!  It’s so nice to finally have a family photo to frame!

I love the easy going feeling of this one…

This is Oliver’s I’m-smiling-because-you’re-telling-me-to smile.  Kind of scary, huh?

That’s better.

Okay, I think we’re done!  Let’s eat!
