Super excited to meet up with these guys again.  ALWAYS a fun time.  Even if it was a tad on the cold side – the snow made for a WONDERFUL backdrop.  Which is really cool (no pun intended), because mom has decided she would like a series of photos for her wall of her and her son.  One for every season.  This Winter collection will be added to the previous Summer and Fall we had taken a few years ago.  Can’t wait to see them again in the Spring! Haha!

Record snowfall AND a snowday?  The perfect opportunity to bribe my children to venture out into this winter wonderland.  Sitting at my desk watching those perfect fluffy snowflakes fall, I knew we had to hurry up to get out there.  Kids…not so fast, OR enthusiastic as I was.  I’m waiting for them at the door with my gear as they are getting ready.  I yell up at them “HURRY UP!!  YOU’RE MISSING IT!!!!”  My son wanders over to the door and says “Wow, Mom.  You are clearly insane.”  Haha!  And that’s what you have to do sometimes to get those perfect shots.  Oh, and offer donuts.  Smile

Okay, clearly I had a little trouble in choosing my favourites. Snow had stopped by the time we had found a location we could park at.  As most parking lots were not cleared at all.  But just as we were about to leave the snow started up again.  So I did manage to get a few with the snow actually falling.  So I’m pretty happy about that.  Although, I just love shooting in fresh snow.  It’s a beautiful backdrop for sure!

The leaves had browned.  Most of them fallen.  But we got bundled up and captured some beautiful family photos anyways.  And actually, I feel like it worked in our favour.  The warm browns just matched so nicely with their clothing selections.  It’s like it was planned out that way!  And the hats….you just can’t beat how awesome the kids hats were.  Haha!  Here are some of my faves!!  Smile

Family

Hard to believe I had just met with this family a few months back…and this new little guy has changed SO MUCH already!!  It’s always a good plan to keep your family photos updated.  Kids change in the blink of an eye.  If you’d like to chat about your own family photos.  Please contact me: info@k-photo.ca I can’t wait to hear from you!!

I can’t believe I am seeing the word January on my calendar.  AND it’s 2016!!  How is that even possible?

I met so many great new families this year…and was able to keep in touch with my fave old ones.  As the kids get bigger, they just get goofier.  (Is that a word?)  All in all, a lot of fun.  I even managed to photograph TWO weddings in 2015.  Which is odd, since I don’t do weddings.  Haha!  I also had two families welcome baby number THREE to the bunch.  Feels pretty darn special to be a part of these growing families.  There’s nothing like that new baby smell.  Or the stories from the older siblings.  I have heard some pretty grand ones this year.  Haha!

Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2016!!  Filled with fun…and hopefully photos!  Camera  Can’t wait to hear from you!  Smile

These guys always have some interesting stories for me.  Keeps me laughing the whole time!!  I guess that is why I love to hang out and take their Christmas photos every year.  I’m always up for trying something different – we had the kids decorate the tree….and then moved on to decorating their brother.  He was a really good sport.  And we had lots of fun.  Smile

It’s been a while since I’ve met up with these guys.  But they ALWAYS bring their smiles!  And this time around, they brought along a new addition.  What a little sweetie!!  Anyone that knows me, knows that when photographing kids you must work very quickly.  Moving this way and that.  And often times, I don’t ever look where I’m going.  Family all set up, moving leaves around…throwing twigs out of the way to get that nice portrait.  Although this is the first time I pulled up a tree seedling.  I was HORRIFIED as to what I had done…and quickly popped it back into the ground.  Even had nightmares about that poor little tree.  Haha!  I may visit in the Spring to see if it survived.  Although Dad was quick to tell me that I KILLED IT!!  Haha!  And that is why I love hanging out with this family.  Always great to joke around with them.  Smile

These girls are growing SO DARN FAST!! Just a few short months ago…a new baby joined the family. And now – she’s all about discovering new things.  Leaves…dirt…her big sister’s hair.  You name it!  Haha!  What a lovely family though; I always have a GREAT time when I get together with this bunch.  And even though the weather was not 100% cooperative, I was glad to capture these moments before the rain decided to hit.  How adorable can you possibly be?? Smile

A bit of a personal post today.  But this fall my gal made the decision that she wanted to chop off her hair and donate it to make wigs for cancer patients. I think she was a bit tired of me combing through the knots…haha!  But still, a pretty good deed I thought.  When she came to me with this idea; I told her to sleep on it.  She’d been growing that mop for a while now; and it would definitely take a while for it to grow back.  I needed to make sure she had thought this all through.  But every day she came to me “Mom, did you make the appointment yet?”  (I think it was ME that was having more of a problem with this plan than she was.  She had her mind made up!)  So I made the appointment.  We went to The Hair Bar in Kanata.  They were AMAZING!  My daughter said she felt like a movie star.  Haha!  (She could definitely get used to being pampered.)  So off it went – all 13 inches of it!  And somehow she came out looking about 5 years older!!  I did NOT sign up for that!  Haha!   She did love her new haircut.  And today, loves it the same.  Her ponytail was sent off to Pantene Beautiful Lengths.  Super easy to do.  (We just received a letter of thanks yesterday.)  The Canadian Cancer Society will then in turn give these real hair wigs out to women going through cancer treatments that would otherwise not be able to afford something like that.

My gal was very proud to have made a contribution.  But has been on the lookout to see if she can see anyone that might be wearing her hair. Winking smile
