2018 had many highlights. First off…we added 2 kittens to our family. I had carpal tunnel surgery on my dominant hand. Making a complete set of working hands! Haha! My daughter donated 14 inches of hair. My son made honor roll. My husband joined a band. And let’s not forget about that tornado!! Still in shock over that. And of course…all of the amazing returning families and new friends my camera had the pleasure of photographing this past year. Cheers, guys!!

Welcoming 2019 with open arms!! If you wish to keep up with what’s happening please follow along on Facebook or Twitter. Or of course…send me an old fashioned email.

Or a boxing day, in this case. Regardless….I just wanted to share a few fun holiday photos. You will notice there is no baking photos. I’m still working on getting that done. Perhaps by New Years!

With being busy and so much going on…I come to look forward to our Christmas cockatail. This year – Christmosas. DE-LISH!!
Every year we try to add a new ornament to the tree. This year because of our kitties – everything was non-breakable. This super sparkly pineapple is my fave!
I won’t deny….our babies were spoiled a bit this Christmas. TOYS EVERYWHERE!! But this troublemaker will play with ANYTHING. Including the ornaments on the tree.
And this little one loves to hide all her toys under the tree skirt. Oh, and pencils too! She got into her sister’s stocking early Christmas morning….pulled everything out…and then tried to HIDE the stocking on her!! Haha! So funny!!
You can’t get through the holidays without some good music. And this was an amazing find this year. A lot of faves on this album!
And while you’re at it….you might as well SMELL like Christmas!! I am a Bath and Body Works fanatic. And this smell is sooooooo good.
We decided to write daily holiday movie/TV quotes on our chalkboard this year. It was fun coming up with them….and also guessing where the quotes are from. #TheGrinch

I know I’m running a bit behind – this is nothing new. But wishing you all a GREAT holiday season!! I hope to meet up with you in the New Year!!

I knew I was in for a giggling good time when we were all set up for a beautiful family photo and this little girl raises her arms and yells “armpits”!!  There is just no recovery from that!!  Haha!  Let’s just say, things got a little goofy.  

So I have to tell you this story.  I had taken the last photo…and was about to pack up when this boy asks if I would take a photo of him and his Mom together.  OMG!! Just melt my heart!!  So we did.  There were a bunch of smiley, standard, looking at the camera poses. But this was by far my favourite.

Not to be outdone by her brother….this little girl needed a photo with her Papa.  All set to take my shot and she grabs onto her Dad’s nose and giggles like a crazy person.  (Perhaps a little back story.  Moments before her Dad said he wouldn’t be able to be a model because his nose was too big.) Haha!

Just because the colours have gone does not mean we need to stay inside.  Nothing is better than that fluffy white stuff as a background for family photos. Please contact for more details. info@k-photo.ca

These guys are always so fun to hang out with.  This little gal had to catch me up on ALL that was new since the last time we met.  Getting her ears pierced was definitely a highlight. Anyways, we couldn’t take TOO long with the chit chat…..breakfast was waiting. 

It is not too late for outdoor portraits!! Now booking first snow family sessions.  Please contact for details: info@k-photo.ca

I have been meeting up with this family pretty much every year since their oldest child was only a week old.  And seriously, she is going to be taller than me soon!! I love hanging out with these guys….it is always an adventure.  Just check out those smiles!!

When this family invited me to do an at-home session I was super excited. Even more so when I found out they had a new little fur baby.  This little ball of fur was so adorable!! Appropriately named “Dots”.  The girls are usually quite goofy for me….and no different being at home.  I don’t even know whose idea it was to all hop in the hammock.  But let me tell you, it was HILARIOUS!! 

Just because the leaves have fallen, and weather has turn cooler – that doesn’t stop the outdoor photos!  Currently prepping for first snow sessions.  If you are interested in wintery outdoor photos – please let me know! info@k-photo.ca And of course, follow along on Facebook or Twitter to keep up with what’s going on.

 

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.

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!!
