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!!

This little guy had thee SWEETEST little face!!  I just adored him!!  He did like to rule his own portrait session though.  He was content to have his photo taken for a little bit.  But preferred snack-time.  Haha!  But honestly….that little face!!  Can you BE any cuter? 

Now booking for 2019! Please contact me if you are interested in setting something up in the new year.  But of course, always time to squeeze in a last minute newborn before Christmas. 

 

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

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!!

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!
