So I am pretty darn proud of my gal for growing and growing that big mop of hair until she was able to donate a large chunk for cancer wigs.  14 inches, to be exact.  And if you can imagine…it only took her 2.5 years to do it!  If only MY hair would grow that quickly.  We visited The Hair Bar in Kanata for our post-donation haircut.  The stylists there are all so awesome.  Her locks of hair were sent off to Pantene Beautiful Lengths for the second time.  She was very happy to have a shorter cut for the summer.  And has already been talking about when she can donate AGAIN.

That hair! Those cheeks!! I absolutely fell in love with this little guy.  The family wanted a keepsake of their baby boys one month birthday.  So that’s just what we did.  I have to admit, you never know how things will go when photographing an older newborn.  But this little guy gave us a bit of a fuss to begin with…but then totally passed out for the duration of his 1 month birthday shoot.  I have no idea how the rest of the day went.  He probably kept Mom and Dad quite busy.  Haha!  And let’s not forget how helpful his big sister was!  She could definitely tell great stories. I love that age where they just tell it like it is.  No filter. Anyways, we were ALSO lucky enough to involve Grandma and Grandpa in the photo session.  Always important to capture those multi-generations.  I had a little trouble choosing some favourites to share.  Did I mention how adorable his little face is??

I guess you could say things have been a little crazy around the house the last little bit.  We decided it was time to have a little floof join our family.  So back the beginning of May we welcomed our little Ophelia.  She is such a beautiful, elegant 8 week old Chocolate point Siamese kitty – but don’t let that fool you.  She is a GOOF!! Not sure if I could pick a favourite thing about this baby girl.  I love when she takes over my pillow and sleeps on my head.  I love when you’re trying to scold her and then she gives you the head tilt “but I’m so cute” look.  She is just oh so helpful with everything from unloading the dishwasher, folding laundry, making the bed, putting away the groceries.  Haha!  But actually…one of my FAVOURITE things is when she falls asleep with her tongue hanging out. That’s how you know it’s a good nap. 

After she had designated herself as the Queen of the house, we thought what better time to add ANOTHER floof! Welcome Miss Ellie.  (Or if I wanted to type out her full name: Lady Eleanor Wigglefloof of the Squishybeans)  She was a little rescue kitty I fell in love with over Facebook, of all things.  She was left abandoned out by a farm along with a sister and 2 deceased brothers.  We brought her home when she was roughly 8 weeks old…and at this point it was clear – she needed to be taught how to do kitty things.  First of all – the litter box situation was not up to Ophelia’s standards.  She would stand there and monitor Miss Ellie.  And then go in and cover everything when she was done. Even drinking her water was not something our little Miss Ellie learned before coming to our home.  She would slurp.  It was the funniest thing to watch!  But it wasn’t long before she was doing all the kitty things.  

Now don’t get me wrong…it was a bit of a transition period trying to introduce the two of ’em.  Ophelia was a little TOO excited to play with a new little friend.  So she’d try to jump on top of her and eat her leg or ear a bit.  Haha!  And I think Miss Ellie was just happy to be out of a cage, and looking to roam.  We’d let them see each other for short spurts, and then separate them again.  Until one morning they chased each other and wrestled and more chasing and pouncing and even more chasing.  It was exhausting to watch! Actually, exhausting for them as well.  They both snuggled up to each other and had a HUGE nap. Then they were best buds.  After 2 months now if one of them meows – the other one runs to see what the problem is.  They eat together.  Drink together.  Nap together (if the mood arises).  And still have not grown out of using the bathroom together.  I may be a bit biased – but they are awfully darn cute!  

Awww….just look at my babies!!!  While this was a bit of a personal post today – I ALWAYS enjoy adding a pet to any family or children’s session.  Currently booking for summer/fall 2018.  Please follow along on Facebook or Twitter to keep up with any and all news K Photo and Design.  I look forward to hearing from you!  

When I was contacted to join this family for ANOTHER newborn session…I was beyond excited!!  Baby number 3!  AND another boy!!  They definitely know how to have adorable baby boys, why stop at two?  I was surprised when I met this little guy though.  He looked SO much like his older brothers….but a blondie!!  Such a little sweetheart.  And big brothers were so pleased to help out.  Well, okay – middle bro was happy to help in very short bursts.  Haha!  But it was all in good fun.  I did manage utilize some of my new little crochet props.  I felt the diaper cover and little monkey turned out quite nice.  Anyways, I had trouble narrowing down a few to share…but these are the top 11.  Haha!  One of which is one of my favourite family photos I’ve taken to date.  Aren’t they completely adorable?!?!  

Now booking summer 2018.  If you’re looking to set up a newborn, family, children session…or even a small event or baptism – let me know!!  I can send along all the information you need.  info@k-photo.ca  And of course, feel free to follow me on facebook or twitter to keep up with what’s new.

We wanted to include this couple’s first baby in their newborn session.  And with how unpredictable animals can be, we thought it be best we do that first.  But what a little pro this doggie was!! She didn’t want to get too close to her baby sister, but was happy to sit beside her – with some space.  And once that was out of the way, this new baby girl just settled in for a nice little nap.

I always check in with parents in regards to specific colours that should be used for wraps or backdrops.  Some have a theme they are going with, or a colour they absolutely HATE.  But when asked if pink was okay – I got the go ahead.  As mom’s wedding dress was even pink!  No complaints from this wee babe – she must have agreed with pink.  Honestly – just look at that sweet little face!!!  Absolutely adorable!! 

If you were thinking you missed out on some outdoor winter family photos – guess again.  I think we have another week – or 2 (maybe) that we could set something up, if mother nature cooperates.  And of course, we schedule newborn session all year round.  Newbies are best photographed when they are brand new.  Generally within the first two weeks.  Most book their sessions while they are still pregnant.  Please contact me for more info: info@k-photo.ca

One of my silent auction families booked themselves in for an outdoor portrait session.  Yay!!  (So if you have bid on a gift certificate, and WON – please don’t forget to book your session!)  I was so happy to work with these guys – they were hilarious!!  And you could definitely tell that dog was the baby of the family.  Any photo we attempted to not include himself in….he’d figure out a way to wander in somewhere.  The kids were quite familiar with this trail I had chosen as the backdrop for their photos.  I guess they are avid bike riders, and took this trail a little while back.  I was told all about their adventures, and how they got a flat tire and had to walk back.  The boys like to name their off road trails.  This one was named “Africa”.  Not sure why – we didn’t see any safari animals.  Which is probably a good thing! 

With this blanket of white snow out there – it is the PERFECT backdrop for your family photos.  Don’t delay in booking!!  You never know what is coming our way (weather-wise).  And of course, I am always booking in-home newborn sessions – no matter what the weather is.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at info@k-photo.ca  or join the mailing list at www.k-photo.ca  I look forward to chatting!!

I have been photographing this family since these gals were only a few days old.  They have always been quite shy about having their photos taken.  But I think after 5 years…they’ve finally gotten familiar with how weird I am!!  Haha!  I had a great time with this family.  And seriously – don’t their eyes just SPARKLE??  Mom and Dad of course are primping the girls to look their best and then little sister just pulls the hat straight over her face!!  Haha!  I am so glad that photo made it to their 2017 holiday cards!! 

My annual Fall mini sessions were a HUGE success this year.  If you would like to be added to the mailing list in regards to next years event, please sign up on my website: www.k-photo.ca
