"We had Holly do a family photo shoot with our 6 month old son. In preparation for the shoot Holly asked for any ideas or photos that I wanted to have done and gave ideas for colour schemes for our outfits. I really appreciated being able to contact her ahead of time to feel prepared for the day.
On the day of, she arrived early and quickly picked out several locations on the property (my family’s small hobby farm) for photos. She clearly had a vision for the flow of the shoot and was very efficient in getting the shots. Our son wasn’t his happiest self the afternoon of the shoot and Holly went above and beyond to get him to laugh and smile at her. I was worried we weren’t going to have any photos of him smiling but somehow she managed to catch every smile he made.
When we received our photos, very quickly after the shoot, it was a perfect combination of the posed photos I was hoping to see and beautiful authentic moments in between. She really captured our son’s personality with smiling and laughing photos as well as pictures of him looking curious and relaxed.
We are so happy with our family photos and will definitely be using Holly again in the near future."

"Holly is a wonderful photographer, she has done 3 different family photo shoots with our large family and manages to get beautiful pictures!! She is dependable, honest, punctual and great at what she does...everything you could ask for. Hopefully she will continue to capture our treasured moments as the "littles" grow. I have had a ton of photos done over our 40 years together and hers are among my very favourites!! Thank you, Holly!!"

"I strongly recommend Holly. My husband and I were so impressed with Holly’s photography from our wedding. Holly was so professional, reliable and punctual for our big day. She was able and willing to go to different locations for pictures which we really appreciated. She had this way of making everything feel completely natural and was able to organize some really cool photos with the uneven number we had in our bridal party. She captured some of the most memorable moments and really added to our day."

"We had the opportunity to hire Holly for a family event- an 80th birthday celebration. We are so thankful for the pictures she took that day. As a photographer, Holly was very warm and kind to our family! She celebrated the day with us- by capturing the best moments with our family and friends. Her attention to detail, lighting, and background made her pictures unique and beautiful. We are very thankful to have had her there- we were able to enjoy the day. Her talent, attention to detail, and ability to blend in within the day allowed her to make incredible memories for our family!!! thank you!!"

"I really wanted quality photos of my newborn taken but after a really tough labour and with being a new, first time, mom I was in no shape to leave my house. I appreciated Holly coming over to my home when I felt ready and most importantly how flexible she was with time. She was so patient and caring with Rory and I felt happy knowing I could just sit back and watch in the comfort of my own home. I was so happy with my photos - she captured this precious time in our lives perfectly.
I don't like having to suggest poses or ideas - I personally just like the professional to tell me what to do! With a new baby, I like them to be efficient and prepared! Time is everything when you're a new mom. Thanks for doing all of these things!"

"Holly took our wedding photos for us, she did a wonderful job! We have had so many compliments on our pictures. Holly was awesome to work with and made us all feel very comfortable while take the pictures. I would highly recommend choosing Holly to capture your day, you won't be disappointed."

"Holly was our photographer for our wedding and it was one of the best decisions that we made throughout the planning process. We had a COVID wedding which was stressful and difficult to plan, a lot of our original plans had to be “thrown out the window”. Holly was consistent and patient and so helpful throughout all the changes that were occurring before the wedding. When the day arrived, she was professional and confident. During the ceremony she caught some amazing moments from the stage and my mother mentioned how she never even noticed Holly up there. She quietly and discretely captured some beautiful, precious moments from our ceremony. Afterwards, when it came time for bridal party pictures and family pictures, she was efficient and gave good direction for all of the poses. We are thrilled with the beautiful pictures that we have to remember our special day. As others have said, she has an eye for the candid moments just as much as the posed moments which was important to me. Holly was such a delight to work with and showed so much care and attention with everything she did. We are so grateful that we chose her to be our wedding photographer."

"Holly is a fantastic photographer! She did the photos for our wedding and captured some of my favourite moments. I prefer candid photos and Holly did a great job at capturing the small moments that made our day special. I would highly recommend her!"

"Sun and Bloom Photography has been with us for our most important times of our lives- our marriage, and our growing family. Over the years she has captured beautifully the raw and real moments, when no one is paying attention but fully enjoying the moment; that's what she succeeds in. We prefer non-posed photos, and Holly's relaxed, kind and easy nature makes sessions with her feel like there is no pressure to do or be anything but ourselves. Whenever we get our photos back, we are amazed at how she catches the character of each person, especially are two energetic boys. She is a photographer who looks for the person and because of that she finds the unique and true shot."
