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!

2x12 project | january

this year, i really wanted to take on a personal photo project.  to challenge myself creatively and to get some pictures of joe & i along the way.  that's what '2x12' stands for: '2' - for joe & i and '12' - for the 12 months of the year.  :D  (maybe it needed no explanation!  ha!)  i was GOING to do the 'family version' of this....  like a '5x12'...  but i thought that since this family started with the 2 of us, i should start there.  :D  saving that 5x12 idea for next year!  :D

soooooo...through the inspiration of some wonderful photogs, gail werner (gail did a self-portrait series) and jenna davis (jenna did the 'couple' version too!), in particular....  :D  ...my goal is to capture joe & i each month, doing something relevant to that month and time of our life.  :D

i'm really excited about this project as i'm usually the one TAKING the picture, which...hey.  i don't mind at all.  it is my job and i love doing it...  but i just think that our relationship, the one that STARTED this family, is worth documenting.  :D  (...by the way, i'm not entirely sure that joe KNOWS about this project.  ;D  here's hoping he's willing to go along with it!  ha!).

anyhoo...without further ado, here's our 2x12 for january!  :D

Holly! I LOVE this idea :) I was just thinking the other day how I have so many photos of the kids and hardly any of just the hubby & I since they came along. I definitely need to see if I can get hubby on the band wagon for this project. You rock xoxo
