I absolutely LOVE photographing in my hometown of Brandon, Manitoba.  I mean, I loooooove the Ottawa area…but there is just something different about the prairies.  I love the endless fields and colours you can find.  (If you couldn’t tell!)

So this is my best friend’s sister and her little family.  She called me up a few days before our vacation was ending and asked if I would have time to take some family photos of them.  I’m happy the weather cooperated – because we didn’t have much of a back up plan!  We were taunted by a huge bird (hawk?) the entire time we were out there.  (Angry Bird, perhaps?)  But we survived and managed to capture some real cute photos.  Absolutely LOVE those big blues!!  Open-mouthed smile

Summer has happened and this means I’m getting a little behind in my blogging.  I met up with this family back in June.  Their sweet baby girl had the biggest dark eyes and cutest little smiles.  I just fell in love with her!  And well, boys will be boys of course.  They were VERY interested in picking up all the bugs they could find.  As I got them all together for a family photo I noticed both boys still had bugs in their hands.  (One about to go around mom’s shoulder!)  I quickly had to get that out of the way, as I’m sure mom would not appreciate the extra family member in her portrait.  Aside from the bugs – it was an absolutely beautiful day, and I had an awesome time!  Smile

What a awesome family I have to share with you today!  I met up with these guys a few weeks ago on a beautifully sunny day.  And everything just kind of unfolded from there.  They were so funny…and oh the conversations that went on!  I did managed to capture some beautiful images; and here are a few I’d like to show off.  Smile

I was so happy to be asked to capture this special day.  Not one baptism, but TWO!  The kids were adorable!!  (And well behaved – especially since we were coming up on nap times.)  Here’s just a little snippet of what happened.  Smile

I’m getting a little behind in my postings because of the holidays.  But things are beginning to look normal around here – I hope!

So I met up with this family a week before Christmas.  The little newbie was 3 weeks old; and his big brother and sister just adored him.  I’m amazed he slept through some of the “love” they were giving him!  Brother and sister were so funny.  I even had them perform a little concert for me while Mom was feeding the little one.  I tried to pick a few images to show off, and then I had to weed them down again.  I just had too many faves!!  So here’s what I decided on.  Smile

Happy New Year everyone!!  What a year this has been for me!  I’ve had the opportunity to photograph many expanding bellies, lots of wee babes and a pile of families.  You can now view my work at quite a few places around the city.  3D Miracles ultrasound clinic, Ottawa Integrative Health Clinic, Hands on Health massage therapy, and now at FAB Baby Gear!  (You can also purchase newborn packages directly through them AND the packages are on their baby registry.)

Okay, I have to share some favourites from 2011!!  Open-mouthed smile

With Christmas only a few days away, I thought it might be fun to just share a few of my favourite things about the holidays.  Or perhaps it’s an excuse to avoid all the cleaning I SHOULD be doing.  All I can say, is thank goodness I am finished my shopping!!

Every year I get so excited for Christmas tree day.  Which usually turns out to be an all day decorating event.  I think that it’s awesome that we have an Incredible Hulk ornament on our tree.  And my little mouse on the roll of 35mm film (a classic).  And I love that all the Santa’s MUST go on the same branch.  (They do it to mess with me, I know it!)  And of course, my favourite are the hand-made ones that come home from school.  Red heartOrnaments

But to get into the Christmas spirit – I MUST have some good Christmas music playing!  Every year we start off our Christmas tree decorating by throwing on Kenny & Dolly’s “Once upon a Christmas”.  I listened to it every Christmas as a kid; and was so happy to find it on CD a few years ago.  Oh, and we can’t forget about great Christmas movies!  We watch the same ones almost every year.  But there are some that are definitely more favourites than others.  The kids of course love Elf, but my all time FAVOURITE is the Family Stone.  I don’t know if there could be a more perfect movie.  SmileChristmas movie and music

Perhaps I like the holidays to have the excuse to decorate things that I wouldn’t normally decorate. (Or maybe I just feel like I can get away with it better!) Open-mouthed smiletoilet paper tree

I also love my home-made stockings. The cats stockings are my favourites. Heehee. I think the kids almost are more excited about what Santa put in the cats stockings than their own!! Stockings

I love doing Christmas activities with the kids.  This year we painted ornaments (so much fun!) and constructed a little Gingerbread masterpiece.  They TOTALLY try to mess with me by putting two jellybeans of the same colour beside each other!!  Winking smileGingerbread house

It has to SMELL like Christmas too!  I admit, I LOVE Bath and Body Works.  I can spend hours in that store picking out the perfect scent.  And I settled on Mistletoe Kiss.  It’s a very fresh Christmassy smell. Holiday scents

I’ll admit it – I’m NOT much of a baker.  I’m in awe of people who whip up these amazing little treats for the holidays.  I usually end up having to make two batches because the first one messed up in some way.  Or giving up completely!  But I DO like to decorate.  This year I managed to make THREE different things, without messing any of them up.  Yay me!  I think the problem is that I’m always up for trying something new, and maybe I should stick to the tried and tested ones.  Heehee.  We’ve got decorated sugar cookies and reindeer peanut butter cookies.  (If you’re counting, I also made a peanut butter marshmallow treat (or dainties as my family always called them) – but the photo didn’t look very appetizing. Winking smile)  I had some great testers too!Christmas treats

And any excuse to put up coloured lights all over the house is good for me!  I just love the glow of our tree. SmileChristmas lights

Seems like Christmas will be here before you know it – and then over in the blink of an eye.  Take the time to enjoy it!  I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!!  I’m excited to see what 2012 brings!!  Open-mouthed smile
