Introducing a NEW location you can view K Photo and Design’s artwork.  Baby Snuggles 3D/4D Ultrasound facility gives you the opportunity to see your baby before he/she arrives!  They offer various different packages allowing you to hear your baby’s heartbeat, gender determination, you can even bring home your ultrasound pictures!  I love matching up the ultrasound photos with a baby’s newborn images to see the resemblance.  They also make a pretty nice prop to use for maternity photos.  Just saying.

So if you’re thinking of finding out if you are carrying a boy or girl, give Baby Snuggles a call – tell ‘em I sent you!  Smile

 

Expectant mommies are best photographed at around the 34th-38th week, before you start to feel “too-pregnant”.  You will have a nice round bump by this time depending on if you are on your first, second or even third baby.  And don’t forget to book your newborn session!!  New babies are best photographed within the first week.  They are so teeny and fresh at that point – you don’t want to miss it!  That is why is it best to reserve your spot while you are still pregnant.  Please contact me for more info: info@k-photo.ca  I can’t wait to hear from you!!

I didn’t come up with it, but I read it somewhere and thought just how true it is!

In the days of film, I would walk in to my local photo lab with a 24 exposure roll of film and walk away with about 20 photos to put into my albums.  I’d get reprints done and send them away to my family so they could enjoy pictures of my son as well.  And now with everything going digital, I love being able to easily email or update my facebook with current pictures.  But I still print them out and put them into albums.  For many reasons: Peace of mind.  It’s just an extra back up. I would NEVER want to lose my memories to some stupid technology-fail.  Secondly, I like to see everything as it happens in order.  Not having to search through folders and folders of file numbers on my computer.  I also like to scrapbook, so its fun tell a little story that way.

But any really special photos I try to print up a little bigger and frame them.  Something that you can see every day and enjoy.  I know as consumers we were taught that if you want something for your photo album – order a 4×6.  If you want to put it in a frame on your desk – you will need a 5×7.  And if you want something bigger for your wall – you order an 8×10.  But in truth, you need to measure your wall space and make sure you are ordering the appropriate size – or it will just look silly.  Trust me.  If you are doing a grouping of photos, order a couple smaller ones.  But if you are looking for a big focal point of your home, measure and fill the space!  You’ll thank me later. Winking smile

wall artThis has been something I have wanted to do for YEARS now. I needed a wall portrait of my kids larger than the portrait of my cat. It was time. I love this image – but love it MORE as a 24×36 on my wall. So don’t be afraid to take the plunge and put something big on display. If you have an image you love – just do it! Open-mouthed smile  All of my wall portraits 11×14 and larger are mounted and laminated – all ready to be framed and enjoyed!

(Ha ha!  My poor cat thought I was taking HER photo!  Just look at her posing for me…heehee.)

I thought it has been a while since I posted some cool ideas for what you can DO with those photos.  (In hopes that they are not spending their days in an envelope sitting in the back of a drawer.) Winking smile

A coffee table book is a GREAT idea when you have so many favourites you just can’t decide what to do with them.  Each book has 20 press-printed pages, hard cover with photo and is custom designed by me!  It’s fun to have a mix of colour and black & whites – even full page spreads!  The possibilities are endless!

I know we’re almost halfway through the year (if you can believe it!), but I wanted to share a new package that was introduced back in January.  It has quickly become one of my more popular items, especially for new parents.  I’m talking about Digital Packages.  I currently have two packages available to suit your needs.

Each package includes:

  • High resolution images on a CD for printing
  • Low resolution images on a CD for online sharing
  • Professionally printed 5×7 of each image chosen
  • Custom CD case to hold everything together

Full details for these packages can be found in the pricing section on my website.

Don’t forget, the summer months book up quickly, so if you’re thinking of scheduling a portrait session, please don’t delay!!

Happy New Year everyone!  I’m not doing too bad, posting a New Year’s special on the 4th of January.  😉

So this is brand new for this year.   It’s a small calendar with 12 months and one image.  Great to use it at home, the office or even a gift for the grandparents!  Each calendar is 5×7 in size, mounted for durability and only $20!  However, for my lucky January and February clients, you will receive one on me.  My little welcome to 2011!  🙂
