Yep, you read that right. It’s HOLLYHOWEphotography (caps for my name, no spaces) and I am a natural light portrait & wedding photographer in Moncton, New Brunswick.

I love what I do and I’m obsessed with belly laughs (if you can make me laugh, you’re my favourite. Let’s face it – you’re ALL my favourite!!), good light (golden hour pretty much anywhere) and a good cup of joe (not my hubby – ha! the caffeinated kind). So thrilled you’re here and checking out my work!

If you like what you see, please feel free to drop me a line at holly@howes.ca.

Have a fabulous day!

may we never forget.

it's 11.11.11.  we just finished watching the CBC live broadcast of the remembrance day ceremony in ottawa. it's really quite profound, eh?  (that's so canadian of me).  ...the act of remembering.

we stand at attention as a family.  i try to sing 'o canada' (i can never get through it.)  we listen to the prayers.  we hear the 21-gun salute.  we see our governor general standing with the silver cross mother (cannot imagine...never having my son or daughter come home again...)  we see the applause of the crowds as the veterans walk together.  seeing the tears and sadness in their eyes. but also the pride and love.  my heart is overwhelmed.

i pray that we never forget the sacrifice that was made for each of us.  no matter who we are, what colour we are, we religion we are...or even how grateful we are. they fought and died so we could live.

so here i am.  remembering.  and very, very thankful.


There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for one's friends.
