I have a few families that fight for my first AM slot for my annual Fall mini sessions.  But these guys usually win – as Mom is always thinking ahead.  Usually before Summer is over she is contacting me to get going on organizing the sessions.  Haha!  The kids are always so funny.  Goofy, but well behaved.  I always have such a fun time with them.  Mom asked me if I recognized little bro’s sweater – and I DID.  It was worn by his big brother a few years back for the kids fall portraits. They’re so darn cute!!

Currently booking the last little bit of Fall sessions before the leaves are gone for another year.  If you’re interested, let me know! info@k-photo.ca  And as always, you can keep track of what is going on at K Photo and Design by following along on Facebook or Twitter.

One thing I miss terribly about moving out East, is the amazing coloured fields of the prairies. You have canola.  Which is my absolute favourite – because it’s yellow. But I also love the flax fields.  The blue looks just like water as you drive by.  Especially if there is a breeze running though the flowers.  I’m also a big fan of the sunflower fields.  But it’s hard to time our visit when EVERYTHING is in bloom.  Because that would just not happen.  Another thing that has been increasingly difficult is convincing the kids to go on these adventures with me to take photos.  And even worse, my son decided to wear the same shirt for ALL PHOTOS I took while we were on vacation.  So…of course, here is the pizza shirt again. #PizzaShirt 

As we finished up playing around in the canola, I warned the kids that I saw a beautiful flax field I wanted to stop at. They groaned and begun complaining. But I had to find a side road to be able to get off the main highway.  When that looked like it wasn’t going to happen – they cheered! Until…I DID find a side road.  As we drove closer to the field we realized it had an electric fence around and a very large sign that said “no trespassing”.  The kids cheered again.  So as a compromise, I did NOT trespass…but stood on the outside of the fence and took my photo. I’m glad I did. How pretty is all that blue?

I take a limited amount of family/children sessions in the summer while back in the Brandon, MB area.  If you would like to be put on my 2018 list, let me know! info@k-photo.ca

“We have added another munchkin to our brood and would love to have you capture the fleeting newborn stage and update our family photo.”  I couldn’t believe I was hearing this update from one of my favourite families!!  It’s amazing to compare this new little guy to his big brother and sister.  As baby was getting ready for his debut photo shoot his brother and sister kept me busy with stories of their Dad’s hockey career.  What was even funnier was the look Dad gave me….like the majority of that story may not be true.  Haha!  But they did keep me entertained while baby was snacking.  Even suggested I should photograph them wrestling; which I promptly did.  Haha!  What bundles of energy!!  And baby…well he just liked to be held – and eat – and then be held some more.  I think he has Mom and Dad wrapped around his little finger already.  As they should be.

Newborns tend to photograph best when they are brand new, therefore it is best to reserve your spot while you are still pregnant.  Now booking newborn, kids and family portraits sessions.  And please stay tuned to hear about our annual mini session dates coming up this Fall.  Any questions?  Give me a shout!  info@k-photo.ca  Talk soon!!

It’s been so drab the last few weeks – I thought a little colour would be nice.  And what a MASSIVE amount of colour we managed to find this past fall.  Trees were at the point of losing their colour…but this one AMAZING yellow tree hung on just for us.  The girls just loved hiding behind the big leaves.  After a heavy rainfall – the ground was so wet, it definitely kept mom and dad busy trying to keep the kids clean!!  I didn’t do so well myself.  I think I had mud and water up to my knees!  Haha!  But worth it in the end.  I just loved their little ladybug coats.  Can you get any cuter than that? 🙂

Annual mini sessions are a GREAT way to keep your family photos current.  If you would like to be put on the mailing list for the fall of 2017, please let me know!  info@k-photo.ca  I’d love to hear from you!  🙂

One of the things I look forward to every Fall is having the chance to meet up with this family.  Aside from baby photos, I think this is the 5th year we’ve been doing this.  (Just last year!)  The kids ALWAYS keep me on my toes…and the chatter is hilarious!  As you can imagine, working with 3 different, very busy children can be a challenge.  But I am just so happy with this family photo – makes it ALL worth it.  Aren’t they adorable?!?! Open-mouthed smile

I can’t believe we’re already into 2017!! Where has the time gone?  Now booking newborn and baby sessions for the Spring.  Please contact me at info@k-photo.ca to chat about your very own session.  Can’t wait to hear from you! Smile

Summer.  Seems like it was so long ago.  Anyways…I was very happy to be asked to catch some family photos of these guys when I was back home in Brandon, MB this past year.  I have held off in posting anything, as I knew there were some Christmas gifts in there.  It was a beautiful day – AND everyone managed to find the time to get together.  Which is not always easy with everyone’s activities, work and all that fun stuff.

It is insane how grown up these kids are getting.  I think I have photographed most of them since they were wee babies.  Even the changes from our LAST family photos: (C fam & R fam).  Seriously!  Stop growing!!  Haha!  I loved getting Grandma and Grandpa involved too.  Funny to think that I was having sleepovers in their basement 30 years ago!  They have not changed at all!  (I have, maybe.)  Winking smile  Haha!

Anyways, I had a TERRIBLE time trying to narrow down my favourites…so this is what I have to show you.  Smile

Hard to believe that 2017 is right around the corner.  So I just wanted to look at some of the amazing people I have met, and also reunited with over this past year.  I was lucky enough to be invited to capture a baptism and also a 90th birthday party.  My fall mini sessions are always a fave.  I love catching up with families I haven’t seen in a while.  And the kids ALWAYS have amazing stories for me.  Haha!  Smile  So here are a few of my most loved photos from 2016…if you see yourself – let me know! Winking smile

Apparently a lot can happen in 5 years.  I did not realize it had been THAT long since I last met up with this family.  But so happy we did!!  I mean, how adorable are these gals??  And we managed to capture these nice smiles in the midst of a “fairy attack”.  Haha!  Perhaps it was the crew I had just before them that had woken up all the little bugs, maybe the sun, or the fact that the temperature had warmed up by then…but it was CRAZY!!  They were all little troopers though.  Mom kept telling them they were little fairies.  And it seemed to work!  Because we ended up with these amazingly cute photos!! Smile

I know I’m in for a fun time when I book a family session with this family.  A lot has changed since last year.  Or even the year before!  Little girl comes right up to me and introduces herself (as though we’ve never met).  But not to be outdone by her brother, he ALSO had to introduce himself.  So she starts showing me her pretty bracelet she’s wearing.  Boy jumps right in and shows off that HE is wearing a sweater!  Haha!  What little kooks!!  By the end of the session things got a bit goofy.  I know, shocking!  We were trying to keep the kids happy and interested by giving them these beautiful red leaves to hold onto for the photo.  They were both shaking their leaves as happy as can be.  But little boy kept shaking the leaf right in front of his face.  Which was not the BEST idea from a photographer’s perspective.  So I asked him if he could shake his leaf down by his side – and proceeded to demonstrate for him.  So he agrees he will do that and walks right over to me and begins to shake his leaf right beside me – which TECHNICALLY is exactly what I told him to do!!  Haha!  What a kid!!  I honestly have never dealt with a small child who follows direction as well as he did.  Literally.  Smile
