Equine | Scuffed Boots Photography

10 sessions, 3 days. Bright sun, cloud, pouring rain, bugs, wind, you name it, Lameque throws it at me. But I love it. These are some of my favourite equine shoots I’ve ever done. Editing these shots I burst out crying probably 4 or 5 times. And I took them! Thank you ladies for letting me capture these memories for you and your families. And Sylvette, thank you so much for inviting me up once again.

Well, we all blinked and it’s now 2011. Amazing how that happens so fast isn’t it. 365 days sounds like a huge amount of time. Remembering back to January of last year is like remember decades ago, and at the same time feels like it was just last week.

Every year in review post on every blog has something along the lines of “What a crazy year!” or “Wow so much has happened”. I didn’t want to be that blog, but really every year is that crazy. And every year, that much happens.

I’ve collected a bunch of images from all through 2010. Some I’ve blogged, some I haven’t. Some are work work, and some a personal photos. But this was my year, in a blog post, celebrating Scuffed Boots Photography.

<3 Bring on 2011.

PS – These aren’t in any particular order. Just the way the cards fell on the table. :)


Lameque was something I’d never experienced before. 30+ degree heat, 2.5 days, 14 shoots, 21 hours of shooting, 25 people, 17 horses, 2 ponies, 3 dogs, 3 goats, 2 pigs and one miniature donkey = too many pictures to even count. And then to pick favourites from each shoot, well that’s ridiculous. But I did it, and now I’m sharing them with you.


















So, I can’t really call this post a Sneak Peak as some of these have been on Facebook for a while! But I just can’t help but show off some of these pictures I took at Albro Creek Farm, on my trip to Nova Scotia to see Danique Fisher of Century Classic Photography!

I had the pleasure of meeting Jennifer and her super sweet horse, Whitney. These two are SO close, it’s like the ultimate horse and rider relationship. They are so cute!

Albro Creek is one of the most amazing stables I’ve ever been to. The horses, the grounds, and the people!! Everything was soo great! Thanks so much to Jenn for having us, and for Danique for introductions and support!

Weddings | Scuffed Boots Photography

On a farm, outdoor, the chance it may downpour right during the ceremony but it doesn’t and you get gorgeous pictures with no bright sun kind of real farm wedding. I was so hoping for Katie and Chris’s sake that the rain would hold off just until we were done their portraits. Now, on average, my brides and grooms contact me about 6 – 8 months in advance.

The Wedding Album – Moncton Wedding Photography

A white photo album, with gold or silver ornate designs on the front, and inside some slip in matted photos, maybe like 10 or 15 shots. That’s my parents wedding album, and the standard when it came to albums before digital photography.

Design | Scuffed Boots Photography

I just finished my last horse show of the season yesterday, and now it’s time to start thinking about what to do with all those pictures. It was a poster that the BMHS Bike Klub sold at the Atlantic Motorcycle and ATV Show at the Moncton Coliseum this past weekend. 8×10 Collage created to use as a Calendar page in the NB Appaloosa Breeder’s Calendar. I designed this show banner for the photo booth that I had set up in one of the barns.

Grad | Scuffed Boots Photography

Almost eighteen years ago I was picking wildflowers with Kate, making the biggest bouquet I think either of us has ever picked, for mom. I already miss your stories from trades class with the boys, and yes even a bit of the stories of Blue. Because you, my dear little brother, decided you needed to have fireworks every year on your birthday.

Engagements | Scuffed Boots Photography

So when Sally contacted me just after Christmas about getting engagement pictures done, and mentioned it was Bryan she was engaged too, that was another surprise. This would be the last chance we’d get to shoot Monique and Geoff’s engagement pictures, just in time to get a guestbook back for their July wedding. The day before had been the nicest day we’d had in about 2 weeks, and yet again, it was pouring.

Shoots | Scuffed Boots Photography

This would be the last chance we’d get to shoot Monique and Geoff’s engagement pictures, just in time to get a guestbook back for their July wedding. That same little smirk you had when I was taking these pictures and you said “but I don’t know how to smile”. I already miss your stories from trades class with the boys, and yes even a bit of the stories of Blue. Editing these shots I burst out crying probably 4 or 5 times.

Events | Scuffed Boots Photography

There were also demonstrations on shearing and alpaca photography, as well as booths set up with products made from Alpaca fiber. Now that my life has moved into post education/grown up life, my inner designer is constantly redesigning interior spaces.
