Hey friend!

WELCOME to my blog! My name is Holly Howe and I am a Moncton-based wedding & portrait photographer. I love people and I love taking pictures. This gig is a sweet combination of the two. :) Here on my blog, you'll see glimpses of LIFE and LOVE. From joyous wedding days to intimate times with a brand-spankin' new family, my desire is to capture the moments to be treasured and remembered for a lifetime.

If you'd like to book a session with me or simply have a question, I would LOVE to hear from you! Email me at holly@howes.ca.

Now grab a cup, pull up a chair and stay as long as you'd like. ;) It's an honour to have you here!

emily | moncton portrait photographer

i was so excited when emily agreed to help me on an upcoming project (which i'll be sharing details about very soon!).  even more excited that she was up for just about anything...like posing in -20° weather!!  or maybe it was colder.  ha!  seriously, it was so cold!!!!!

emily, thank you for being a willing and ever-so-patient model.  i hope you like your pictures.  :)

special thanks to sarah-jane of bastarache beauty for emily's make-up.  sj - what you do is EXQUISITE.  i can't wait to work with you more in the future.

and one last shoutout to chloe & grace for cheering emily on, carrying bags, holding reflectors...and whatever else i needed you to do.  em has great friends.


...and last but not least.  :)  congrats to emily & her fellow hockey team!  they were just recently crowned provincial champs!!  CONGRATS GIRLS!!

i'm inspired...

...by many things.  music.  scripture.  a great quote.  a great photograph.

lately though, i've been incredibly moved by the videos/testimonials that have graced by Facebook/Twitter feeds.  i've laughed.  i've cried.  i've become so giddy excited that i thought my heart was going to explode.

so once again, i'm dusting off the ol' blog (a regular occurrence) to bring you some of my faves of late.  and quite possibly for the opportunity to laugh & cry with you.  because i haven't done that today.  :)

enjoy.  Xo.

1. the story of an English boy who stuttered.
my son, jacob, needed speech therapy when he was younger...  and every now and then, the stammering creeps back.  not a whole lot.  but a little.  they just have so much to say, and they're so excited to say it...  it gets overwhelming.

THIS one really hit home.  (get the tissues.)

2. movies written by kids.
haha!  joe & i near DIED watching this one.  my heart was so ready to laugh after the Mushy (previous) video.

3. two guys rocking out on, yes...cellos.
my background is in classical music.  i started piano lessons when i was 7, and even went on to study the piano in university.  i love classical music.  but i love ALL KINDS of music so much more.  what these guys did here is nothing short of extraordinary.  i think i've viewed the video...oh probably 40x times.  no word of a lie.

so there you have it.  a bit of a random post for a thursday.  :)

hope you & yours are all well on this day.  what did ya think of the #snowpocalypse blizzard yesterday?!  pretty amazing, eh.  and today was the calm after the storm.  quite lovely.

blessings today.
