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. 

 

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??

When I was contacted to join this family for ANOTHER newborn session…I was beyond excited!!  Baby number 3!  AND another boy!!  They definitely know how to have adorable baby boys, why stop at two?  I was surprised when I met this little guy though.  He looked SO much like his older brothers….but a blondie!!  Such a little sweetheart.  And big brothers were so pleased to help out.  Well, okay – middle bro was happy to help in very short bursts.  Haha!  But it was all in good fun.  I did manage utilize some of my new little crochet props.  I felt the diaper cover and little monkey turned out quite nice.  Anyways, I had trouble narrowing down a few to share…but these are the top 11.  Haha!  One of which is one of my favourite family photos I’ve taken to date.  Aren’t they completely adorable?!?!

We wanted to include this couple’s first baby in their newborn session.  And with how unpredictable animals can be, we thought it be best we do that first.  But what a little pro this doggie was!! She didn’t want to get too close to her baby sister, but was happy to sit beside her – with some space.  And once that was out of the way, this new baby girl just settled in for a nice little nap.

I always check in with parents in regards to specific colours that should be used for wraps or backdrops.  Some have a theme they are going with, or a colour they absolutely HATE.  But when asked if pink was okay – I got the go ahead.  As mom’s wedding dress was even pink!  No complaints from this wee babe – she must have agreed with pink.  Honestly – just look at that sweet little face!!!  Absolutely adorable!! 

If you were thinking you missed out on some outdoor winter family photos – guess again.  I think we have another week – or 2 (maybe) that we could set something up, if mother nature cooperates.  And of course, we schedule newborn session all year round.  Newbies are best photographed when they are brand new.  Generally within the first two weeks.  Most book their sessions while they are still pregnant.  Please contact me for more info: info@k-photo.ca

2017 brought me many old, and some new friends.  Love me some new baby smell!! And also my Fall mini sessions were a big hit!  Beautiful weather!!  As a bonus,  I just love catching up with these people every year.  The kids grow so quickly!!  And of course, if I can convince my own children to get in front of my camera – I’m winning!    OH!  And let’s not forget – in 2017 I managed to launch my new website!  If anyone knows my technical abilities…this was a HUGE accomplishment!  Haha!  Anyways, it looks like it’s about time to welcome 2018!!  Here are a few of my fave photos from this past year.  If you see yourself – let me know!!
