Every year for the last few years I’ve set up a day of Fall mini sessions.  It is super fun to meet new families and catch up with some old ones I haven’t seen in a bit.  I have been lucky enough to photograph this family from when their daughter was only a few days old.  So I always look forward to meeting up with them every Fall.  (See last year here.) The kids are so funny.  I just adore their funny stories!!  Haha!  And after ALL this practice of me photographing them.  Big sis decided to help her brother SMILE for me.  Haha!  I swear I should hire her!  Smile

So honoured to be asked to join in on such a special event as a baptism.  This time was doubly special – as there were TWO baby girls!  They looked so sweet all dressed up for their special day.  And were SUCH good girls through the whole ceremony.  Just look at those little faces!! Smile

What a great day! One of those fall days it decided to tease us with warm weather.  Holiday deadlines are fast approaching, but still time to squeeze in some fall photos before then.  Please contact me ASAP to book your portrait session.  info@k-photo.ca

Every year I manage to make it back to my hometown of Brandon, Manitoba for a few weeks.  I get to catch up with family and old friends…and maybe squeeze in a portrait session here and there.  I was so excited when a couple of my high school friends announced they would be back in Brandon at the same time and wanted me to photograph their family.

We ended up with a beautiful day!  Well…the grass was a bit crunchy.  Funny to think the city of Brandon floods every year – but by mid summer, no rain at all.  Go figure.  Anyways…aside from the crunchy grass (and the bugs, of course) – beautiful day!  And the kids were so much fun.  Such quirky personalities.  I just loved it!! Open-mouthed smile

Is there a better excuse to get the WHOLE FAMILY together than a 90th birthday?  I think not!  This family was so much fun!  We managed to wait out the threat of rain.  Okay, there was a small sprinkle.  But all was clear when we were ready to get down to business.  I love working with teachers, they are always so incredible organized.  As we made our way down the list of groupings, people started to disperse to the house.  It was just behind the park.  When we saw the Aunts and Uncles getting into the wine from the patio window, we knew we had to get this party started.  Haha! As there were SO many photos…I just went through and picked a few of my faves to share.  They are a great smiley bunch! Open-mouthed smile

I so enjoyed spending the afternoon with this family capturing such a special event as a baptism.  I think this baby girl LOVED all the attention she was getting all dressed in her fancy gown.  And then we were off for a celebration dinner at a local restaurant.  I don’t know if I’ve ever seen such an amazing cake. It smelled good too! (Big sister and I tested it out.) Smile

As any photographer that lives in Canada – the days leading up to an outdoor shoot, we closely monitor what the weather is doing.  I was aiming to put our back-up plan in place, but this family was VERY adventurous and ready to head outside as planned anyways!  The fire was blazing inside.  And hot chocolate on the stove.  With the help of some great planning we had various family groupings popping in and out as quick as we could.  And the results were amazing! So happy to be able to celebrate their Aunt’s birthday with them. And always a fun time when I get to jump into a snow bank! Winking smile

I definitely feel ready for some outdoor SPRING photos…but I think mother nature has other plans.  However, it is the perfect time to update your child’s photos with an in-home lifestyle type session.  Please contact me for more details.  Smile

I thought a nice Fall session would warm me up and kick those winter blahs. So here we go!

I met this family during the mini-sessions I did back in the fall.  And boy…did they keep me busy. It didn’t help that it was about +15 that day – but I was sweatin’ by the time we were done! I don’t envy mom and dad having to keep up with 3 little ones. That would be MY workout for the day. Haha! All blue-eyed little cuties though. And Mom and Dad were pretty awesome too! Open-mouthed smile

It’s always a challenge when photographing more than one child at a time, but I always LOVE when I capture such an amazing moment of all three kids together AND happy.

I know it’s to turn cold for a little bit, but then we should hopefully get a little warm weather to get outside again for some winter portraits. If you’re interested in hearing more, please contact me. Oh! And don’t forget…still time to save 15% off of wall portraits!! Offer good until the end of February. Smile

I had so much fun with this family! In our pre-planning meeting we were looking at scheduling the session into late November. Which I was a little worried about, because the weather was just so unpredictable. Then mom says to me, “You know, I wouldn’t mind if there was snow.”  WELL…we could not have asked for a better day! Turns out, the FIRST snow of the season was on its way. It was mild, and beautiful! Almost like being in a snow globe!  And what an amazing backdrop it was for our family photos. Smile

Being in Ottawa, we can get some mild, beautiful winter days. Don’t be afraid to venture outside!! You can get some beautiful results. There’s still time to reserve a winter family session. The groundhog said so! Please contact me for more details. Smile

Nothing is better than being able to enjoy my family photos every day. And I can do this now, because they are FINALLY up on my wall! Merry Christmas to me! I had a hard time choosing my favourites…so I decided to make a little collage of photos.  This is a great idea when you want to display multiple photos or you want to take up more space on your wall without buying that massive wall print.  I have always been one to print out my photos.  It is a great way to “back-up” your memories.  But also nice to see them everyday too!  So please, if you have some old photos on a disc in the bottom of a drawer, dig them out and pick some favourites to put on your wall. You’ll love it!! Open-mouthed smile

And in case you’re not so SURE about ordering something for your wall, I will offer all my previous clients a 15% discount off your wall portrait order for the month of February. Love is in the air!! Red heartMyFamily

Our family photos were taken by my lovely friend Rowena.  Aren’t we cute! Smile

15% Wall portrait discount only applies to photos taken by K Photo and Design. Applicable sizes are 11×14 and larger. Offer expires February 28th, 2014. Please contact me for more details.
