Summer has finally reached Nova Scotia after a long, cold, wet spring. We’ve earned it. Patiently waited for it. Embrace that sunshine, soak up some vitamin D, go for a stroll, enjoy the ocean breeze, skip some rocks. Just don’t stay in the water for too long - it’ll be warmer in a couple of months.Read More
An evening stroll along the sands and bluffs of Lawrencetown Beach, Nova Scotia. When wind, sun, tides and love come together in the most perfect of ways.Read More
St. Mary’s Church - current home of the Indian River Festival. Conceived of and planned by hand and paper. Harvested and constructed by hand and tool. I can’t walk inside these structures without reflecting on their back story - the amount of work tied to each beam, each post, each plank, each moulding and each carving. Fir, pine, spruce, maple and birch are represented, all sourced from the immediate area. Heart and soul poured into every square inch - an inherent warmth as the end result. To build a structure such as this is one thing. To maintain it? Something else. Much like a relationship. Much like these two. Much like the family and friends who support them and came to fill this space with their laughter, joy and a warmth of their own.Read More
A drone's view of Val-Comeau Beach in the early hours of the morning. I've driven through Tracadie-Sheila before (most recently for a wedding in Inkerman) but had never stopped to explore the surroundings. This past weekend I found myself in the community for a wedding and ending up falling in love with the coastline. So quiet. So peaceful. So lush and so green.
At the moment I'm working on obtaining an SFOC (special-flight-operations-certificate) for engagement / wedding work. Once in my hands I'll be able to start mixing clients in with these aerial views - I look forward to sharing different perspectives and exploring Maritime locales from the air. Until then I'll still bring my drone on wedding road trips - with any luck I'll have favourable flying weather the morning after each wedding. Its addictive. Its fun.Read More
