Whenever I think about this couple I am reminded of the Dos Equis beer commercials introducing “The Most Interesting Man in the World”.  One of my favourite part of my job is meeting new people and hearing their stories.  And these two are by far one of the most interesting couples I’ve met.  I’m not sure I’ll tell you their WHOLE entire story, but maybe a few snippets.  I guess when you meet the right person, there’s no reason to wait…at least for these guys.  They met, got engaged right away, then were married last year, are now in the process of waiting for their honeymoon baby…and, if you can believe it, JUST bought their first house.  I have no idea what they’ll plan to do NEXT year!

I can’t wait for this little one to arrive.  I don’t have many couples that choose NOT to find out what they’re having beforehand.  So this is really fun for me.  (Although I will be surprised if it’s a boy….I have SUCH a ‘girl’ feeling.  Heehee, only time will tell!!)  Anyways, here’s a few to share of these fun guys.  Open-mouthed smile

I was so excited when I was contacted to photograph this little family again.  I feel like they have grown before my eyes!  One of my first portrait sessions when I started K Photo and Design was this mamas maternity session.  Then the newborn session followed, and last summer I managed to photograph this cutie again when she was almost one.  And now here I am photographing another belly, and soon to be new baby.  It’s quite amazing actually.  So here are a few of my favourites.  Smile

This family is going to be expanding by one more little boy in the very near future.  Although you’d never think that there was a baby in there.  It literally looks like she’s just shoved a little basketball up her shirt.  Wouldn’t it be nice if we could ALL look that gorgeous while carrying around an extra 15(ish) pounds?  Their hands will definitely be full if he’s anything like his active big brother.  He was so talkative, and funny…I definitely got my workout for the day, that’s for sure!  Here’s a few snippets from their session.

Maternity session are best done while you are 34-38 weeks pregnant (depending on how your belly is growing).  If you would like to book a session for yourself please contact me so we can chat.  I look forward to hearing from you!

I don’t think there is a better way to start off the Mother’s day weekend than with this beautiful mama expecting their first baby.

But seriously, I just love photographing people who straight out tell me that it’s going to be difficult for me to photograph them.  (However I believe these two were very wrong.)  This gal was just glowing in anticipation of their baby girl arriving sometime the end of May.  I must admit, I can’t wait to meet her either!  (And also find out the name they have chosen.)  Smile

They got their first look at their baby at 3D Miracles ultrasound clinic.  It’s amazing how you can actually get a little preview of what your baby will look like.

Maternity sessions are best scheduled when you are between 34 and 38 weeks along in your pregnancy.  If you would like to book your own session, please contact me to set something up.

A few months back I began working on a small display of photos for massage therapist/doula Anna Belanger’s clinic. It’s a one of a kind establishment dedicated to women in their birthing years. If you haven’t been there, you MUST check it out. She offers pre and post natal massage, labour support, infant massage classes, and yoga. Anna also has many wonderful associates that hold meetings at “the Mother’s den” in the lower level. Some groups have included breastfeeding meetings and birth preparation classes. Although she always has something new going on!

The lovely belly cast you can see in the window is by Ottawa Belly Casts.  They do amazing work!

Anyways, as some of you may remember, I had a polled my facebook fans to help me choose the lucky photos to order up for the display. Sometimes I just love ALL my babies so much it makes it so hard for me to choose! So these were the photos that were selected.

You can contact Anna through her website if you’d like to meet with her. Tell her I sent you! And while you’re there, enjoy looking at those cute baby photos! Open-mouthed smile



K Photo and Design is currently booking maternity and newborn portrait sessions for this spring and summer.  Please reserve your spot early to ensure availability.

What a great year it has been for K Photo and Design!  So many wonderful clients have kept me busy and entertained over the last 12 months.  I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your business and wish you all the best in 2011!!

Also, if are not currently following me on facebook, please do!  (I often post my current specials there.)  Invite your friends too!!

Time is running out for venturing out into those busy stores and malls.  You COULD always stick to online shopping, but will your items arrive in time?  Why stress out over these silly details when you KNOW a gift certificate for a portrait session will be the most unique gift your friends or family will receive this year. 

Merry Christmas!!

I’m so excited to have the opportunity to show off my images at the 3D Miracles Ultrasound Clinic in Ottawa.  It’s quite amazing to be able to have photos of your baby before they are even born.  The technology is crazy!  If you’re expecting; and are looking for a great place to find out gender, or just to SEE your little one –  the staff at 3D Miracles is awesome!  Be sure to ask about any maternity or newborn specials I may be offering.  I look forward to hearing from you!!

I had so much fun with these guys!  They were up for anything.  Unsure of what to wear, they had a pile of clothes pressed and ready to go.  When Mr. L pulled out a plaid shirt, my immediate thought was: “No way!”  It would be pattern overload!  But as I partnered it up with Mrs. L’s purple top, I thought it really worked for them.  They’re adorable, in fact!  

I usually do a lot of black and whites when it comes to maternity, but these guys rocked in colour!  So there ya go!  🙂

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing this expanding family.  You know everyone talks about that pregnancy “glow”?  Well this gal had it!   I had a great time.  Always a challenge when you involve an active 2 year old.  And this little guy was bu-sy!  I wonder what he’s going to think of his baby sister.  Can’t wait for her to arrive!!
