Life is busy and time goes by too quickly. From the day your child arrives, to their first steps, to their first day at school and the day they move out...they will always be your baby. 

When they are born, a piece of your heart resides on the outside of you and there's nothing else like it in the world.

I take so much pride in photographing growing families and I am truly honoured when asked to do so. It's enjoyment like no other and I'm always so humbled by the opportunity. to be chosen, trusted and invited into another family's life, even only for a short time is an experience that I always look forward to. 

Capturing special moments and freezing little snippets of time for you to look back on when life gets busy and when it moves just a little too fast.

If you're thinking about booking family photos there's no time like the present. Perhaps you've never had them done or maybe it's been a little too long since your last session.

I would love to chat more with you and meet your family. I would love to photograph your fun bunch and deliver images that you will proudly display in your home and that will always put a smile on your face!

My family and I used Nova for our newborn shoot back in August. We did not have an ideal birth and Nova was nothing but flexible from the start. She was willing to work with a date for my family and I when I finally felt comfortable. We had decided to do our photos in home and Nova was able to make our entire home (and nursery) look like it was out of a magazine even though it was unfinished. She has a creative eye and was able to capture our dog in photos who had just passed away as well. Above being a photographer, she was extremely helpful with my daughter with swaddling her, positioning her and making her look cute as a button. Her attention to detail goes above and beyond and I am so glad we decided to use her. I couldn’t pick a better photographer to take photos of our growing family and of our daughter over the next year. She is the best!

-Jacqueline & Mike

I’ve honestly lost track of how many sessions I have booked with Nova. She has captured our family for years and there is no one else we would think to book with in the future. Nova is kind, patient, understanding, easy going and on top of all that - she’s crazy talented. I’m always in shock when we get our photos back and she has managed to capture so many amazing shots despite our pretty wild toddlers. We are forever grateful to Nova for capturing our family’s memories. If you are considering booking with Nova, just know that on top of beautiful photos, you’ll get an amazing experience with someone that genuinely cares about your special moments.

-Natasha & Steven

I can’t say enough great things about Nova Markina and her photography! We’ve been blessed with her work more than once capturing our family as it grows. She’s simply the best and we always love our time with her - I can’t wait to book with her again.

-Kristy & Mike
