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!

happy easter!

i was so blessed this morning at church.

there was lots to be blessed by... worship was heartfelt and rockin'. the choir was awesome and just lifted the praise that much higher. the carew family sang 'my chains are gone' by chris tomlin. mike & jamie sang a song called 'ready to believe'. our pastor spoke of 'His incomparable resurrection'. it was all glorious. Jesus, my risen Saviour, was exalted and lifted high.

but it was the words of a media* that truly broke me. (it's funny. everyone's so different and it amazes me how God speaks to each one of us.) the folks in the media were talking about what Christ meant to them, and Easter and the fact that Jesus was now their Friend...they were found. but the lady at the end said, "the tomb may be empty, but my heart is FULL." and that - well, THAT there sums it all up for me. my heart is so very FULL.

i'm so thankful for the cross and the fact - FACT - that Jesus was willing to pay the price of my sin...and die the ulimate death. because He did what He said He would do - rise from the dead - i have the ultimate hope. i have the hope of eternal salvation. the hope for all my tomorrows. that nothing is impossible for God. that i can have this same power in my own life.

this day changes everything.

i was also blessed today by coming home and finding a link to this new rob bell video on a friend's facebook wall...

enjoy. and happy easter.
