I love being asked to join in on a family celebration.  Especially when it’s a 90th BIRTHDAY!  And this crew did not disappoint. The birthday gal was treated to a fancy limo ride to the venue. When the word got out that she was on her way, the family made their way outside to greet her.  Honestly, you could NOT get any cuter than this lovely lady.  She was a tad embarrassed over all the attention, haha!  But managed to make her way through the sea of hugs and kisses on her way in the door.  We quickly stole her away to capture some family photos.  In between takes she was given a glass of wine to celebrate – which she quickly says to me “I never drink wine.”  Haha!  It was not long and we all went inside for some drinks and snacks before the big dinner.  The decor was beautiful!  And that cake…I hope it tasted as good as it looked!  There was a slideshow playing, and handmade place cards set on the table.  Even a letter from the Prime Minister wishing the birthday girl a happy 90th!  What a beautiful day to celebrate this gal’s 90th birthday!! Smile

It was a day that you could definitely see your breath in the air.  But as your kids grow up and spread out a bit…it is always hard to have them all in the same place at the same time.  So we bundled up well and pushed forward to capture some great family moments.  The temperature was slightly different from the last time we all met up.  This would be the first photo session including the dog.  Although, you wouldn’t know…he acted like a real pro!  I’ve collected a few of my favourites to share.  And although it was quite chilly…I’m so glad this family braved the elements for me.  Freezing

I hope this is the end of the snow for this year.  But if you are interested in a wintery photo session, please contact me to get on the list for next season.  info@k-photo.ca  And otherwise, I am booking currently booking for Spring/Summer 2016.  Can’t wait to hear from you!

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!

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

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

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

After scheduling, rescheduling and and then rescheduling again…I was beginning to think I wasn’t going to see these guys this year.  But it all worked out in the end.  And seriously – what a BEAUTIFUL day!  Not even a mouse could ruin this day.  And if you know me, I’m not a big FAN of little critters like that.  I can’t believe how big this little guy has gotten since the last time I saw him.  And big sis, as charming as ever.  Haha!  I just love that gal!! Mom and Dad are alright too.  Haha!  I always seem to have a good time with this bunch.  And just look at the smiles!! Open-mouthed smile

Christmas deadlines of 2015 are fast approaching.  Still time to get in a quick session or order gifts from a previous one.  Gift certificates are available in any denomination, and always fun to give!  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
