HELLO!

My name is Holly Howe and I am a lifestyle portrait & wedding photographer located in Moncton, NB.

The #1 thing you need to know about me is that I love people and I love taking pictures. Okay, I guess that's two things. ;) I absolutely LOVE what I get to do and I hope it shows. Here on my blog, you'll see glimpses of LIFE and LOVE. From joyous wedding days to tender moments with a newborn, my desire is to capture all the things - big & small - that you want 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 of joe, pull up a chair and stay as long as you'd like. It's an honour to have you here!

christmas with the howes | finding & trimming our tree

I LOVE THIS TRADITION!!!

every year, we go to this tree farm and the kids have an absolute blast finding the perfect tree! the only problem is...it's always so cold by the time we get to go do it... :)



















poor josiah. falls asleep in the van every year! ha!









in case you can't tell by the pics (she's in almost every one!), robyn was our official 'tree decorator'. she loves to help!









the mandatory 'photograph-yourself-in-the-reflection-of-an-ornament' shot. ;)))



meet our 'whoville' tree. ;) cuttin' it kinda close to joe's new ceiling. eeek.







we will, FOR MANY MANY YEARS go and cut down our tree. i grew up with a fake one, you see. a HIDEOUS one at that (artificial trees have come a long way, baby!) and i have VOWED i will NEVER have a fake one again. :) unless one of the kids develop allergies or asthma or whatever...then we'll make changes. :) but until then, it's a real tree for our family.

my sweet girl lookin' all cute in her santa hat. xo.

family | the humphreys



just last week, i got the opportunity to photograph jim, sharon & alex in their BEAUTIFUL new home. it was a cold and wet day (again!) but oh well. i think we did pretty great - some fantastic shots here...and just in time for the holidays! :)



"why, alex...have you lost something??! recently?!" ;)



lots of kids this age losing teeth. sniff. sharon, our boys are growing up!











ha! every now & then, alex wasn't interested in doing pictures. ;) so i basically (and yes, this happens quite often) just go with the flow. whatever happens - happens. i chased alex around for a bit (too fun!).





he showed me his room...and his headstand...and his mismatched socks. :)



what a bookshelf this kid's got! whoa!





then he showed me his mom & dad's office.







"alex...where are you?!" (hiding under the desk). :)



and some fam shots.













...and alex had had enough. :) good job, buddy!



can't end the post without the obligatory pic of me reflected in an ornament bulb. don't know why, but i love that. :)



thanks, jim & sharon, for inviting me (and jacob & robyn!) into your home! what a beauty! i pray you have many, MANY happy christmases there! :)))
