This engagement session was one of those ones I had to work really hard for …. and by that I mean trudge through a LOT of fresh snow to get to where we wanted to go. It was definitely a workout by times, but once we got to the location, it was totally worth it. To me there’s nothing better than a winter session where there is fresh snow all around and on the trees! These two were so much fun as well…. which made for a most enjoyable experience for me…. when I can’t stop laughing in the middle of the session, I know it’s going well. I know they’ve been patiently waiting for these, so here’s  a sneak peek of Sophie and Tyler’s engagement photos ♥

I remember checking out this next image on the screen on the back of my camera, and what I saw blew me away… the two snowballs in their hands look just like hearts (at least I thought so). How cool is that?!

Sophie and Tyler, I just wanted to say again how much fun I had working with you guys. You were total troopers for working in the snow and cold! I can’t wait until we can work together again!!

This post is probably one of the most personal things I’ve ever put out there on my blog. I’ll start by saying this was extremely difficult – probably even more difficult than I ever thought it would be, truthfully. I was never one for self-portraits… I have done a few, but they were definitely very infrequent. My preference is to be behind the lens, photographing everyone else, and making them feel fantastic.

A few months ago, by some random chance, I came across a US Photographer named Brooke Shaden.  There was something about her work (and her words) that just grabbed me immediately. While I’ll admit that our work couldn’t possibly be more different, I was completely inspired by her passion for photography, and by her approach to it. It’s hard to put into words exactly, but her words really resonate with me. She puts 110% of herself into her work, and does it the way SHE wants to – which is completely not cookie-cutter. It was really so refreshing to see someone put themselves out there like that, regardless of the consequences. As artists we put our heart and souls into our work, and it can be very difficult to put that out there, for fear of rejection.

There was one particular blog post that inspired this one I’m writing right now…. it was about a project called “I AM ME” …. she wanted people to post a self-portrait of themselves, with three simple words at the end… “I am _____ “. It’s about self-discovery…. and becoming more comfortable in your own skin.  Particularly as women, we often compare ourselves to traditional standards of beauty…. but who is to say what is beautiful and what is not. I’ll admit, yet again, that although I was so pumped to do this initially, once I looked at the images on my computer screen, I kind of freaked out a bit.  And writing this is freaking me out a bit more… but I’m doing it anyway. Because I NEED to.

Here you have it…. “I AM STRONG”

I could get into a big explanation, but I think the words (and the photo) speak for themselves. It’s not perfect (nothing is), but it’s me ♥. I will say, though, that I am now feeling stronger in so many ways… not just physically.

A big thanks goes out to my awesome friend Tracy Waye Kelly for helping me out a ton with this shot… and to Brooke Shaden for inspiring me to do this in the first place.  I am so not into being vulnerable and putting myself out there, but honestly I’m so glad I did this. I hope it inspires someone else to start (and share) their own personal journey.

  • jude - you are stronger than you think! i’m so happy to hear that you are feeling stronger in many ways! <3 keep on!ReplyCancel

  • Denean - Beautiful photo, beautiful words, beautiful soul!
    Stay strong friend, you can do anything!! <3ReplyCancel

  • Tracy - I absolutely love it, Faye ! You have come sooooo far and have such a right to be proud 🙂 This photo shows how far you’ve come personally and physically. You weren’t physically strong enough to do this before, and yet, yesterday, I witnessed you doing this over and over again (after you ALREADY went to the gym; and we waded a mile in snow). So, strong….yes you are. And yes, it takes guts to put photos of yourself out there, especially vulnerable ones. That has changed too. Previously, we never saw photos of you……but you are slowly starting to be ok with your photos. That change comes from deep inside.

    I am so proud of you, friend !!! Keep up the great work !ReplyCancel

  • Project: Create – Week 4 {Miramichi, NB Photographer} » FK Photography - […] think of a better thing to be doing to celebrate, honestly!  My primary focus that day was a self-portrait project, but we also had time to relax and shoot whatever we saw that was interesting. Thankfully we did […]ReplyCancel

I’m really, REALLY excited about showing you some of these shots for this week’s project post. I had the opportunity to get out shooting with a great friend of mine last week, and I am so pleased with the shots I was able to get. It was definitely FREEZING out… but it was totally worth it. I find there is nothing better than getting out and doing some “just for fun” shooting with a friend to re-ignite that spark that made me love photography in the first place. We are already planning our next outing!

For this week’s shots, I used my lensbaby for a few, but I also got a chance to play with my macro lens and some new extension tubes that I got after Christmas. The non-photographers will have no idea what I’m talking about – but let’s just say I am in LOVE with the results from it. The details and depth I was able to capture seemed so much richer than with just my macro lens alone – and I’ll be experimenting a lot with them in the months to come.

I can’t wait to see what Denean, Stacy and Cathy have for this week! Let’s start with Denean… you’ll find her post here.

I have another mini-project I’m undertaking in the next couple of weeks – so stay tuned!

  • Cathy K - I am totally partial to all of the wood shots. I’ve got enough wood in my yard to build a house and have thought several times about shooting it but never did! I love who you composed these, and how your extension tubes made the macros macro-ier! That was Denean’s word, I think!ReplyCancel

  • Denean - this post has me drooling. I am so in love with all the textures!!! These are some pretty amazing shots Faye!! You definitely rocked the tubes!!ReplyCancel

  • stacy - I love that one with the knot and all the ribs of the tree… such great stuff!ReplyCancel

This lovely couple drove up from Riverview for some engagement photos last weekend…. and I seriously don’t think the weather could have been any more perfect. The freshly falling snow and mild temperatures were absolutely ideal. We headed to French Fort Cove, since I knew there would be lots of snow on the trees – and it certainly made a great backdrop. We definitely had lots of fun – including a snowball fight, lots of snuggles, and then finishing up with a little sledding ♥. Here are my favourites so far:


Chantal and Joe – I’m SO looking forward to your wedding next summer…. I know we’re going to have a fabulous time ♥

This past year, I was fortunate enough to get to photograph a lot of families… some returning customers (thank you!), and some brand new faces. Each session was so different – and I have to say, I love that. I love capturing the personalities of families and little ones. Some are easier to capture than others, but they’re all so much fun. Sometimes I even have a little magic happen ♥

So here are my favourites from last year’s sessions…. I saved my top ten for the end of the post, so make sure to scroll all the way through:

As you can imagine, narrowing down this many sessions to a top 10 was pretty near impossible…. but here they are ♥

It really was a wonderful year for my little photography business…. full of fun, surprises, and a few rainbows ♥. Thank you to each and every one of my clients…. it truly was my pleasure working with all of you!!
