So happy to hear of the new addition to this little family.  It had been a while since we last met…about 2 years in fact.  Big sister was quite chatty, and I had so much fun listening to her little stories.  Baby brother was simply adorable.  What more can you ask for?  It was amazing how much the two kids looked so extremely alike as wee babies.  As you can see here. These are a few of my faves I have to share with you. Smile

Mmmm….I just can’t get enough of that sweet baby smell!! Now booking family/kids/baby portraits for fall.  And I still have a limited amount of space for family/kids portrait sessions in Brandon, Manitoba this summer.  Please contact me for full details.  And of course, I accept newborn clients all year round!!  I look forward to hearing from you! Smile

I just adore those big dark eyes!  And so happy I have been able to spend so much time photographing these cuties.  Little brother was a bit shy for his 6 month session…but gave up some smiles when we got some tickles on that chubby belly.  His big sis was the same.  Always made us work for a smile.  And finally when it was not her turn, we got tonnes of smiles!  Haha!  Isn’t that always the way?  It’s been a few short months since his 3 month session.  I can’t believe how much he’s grown!!  Here’s some of my faves.  Smile


Gotta love this sibling love! Haha! Open-mouthed smile

Now booking outdoor family and children’s sessions for the summer.  Also, I have a limited amount of spaces available in Brandon, Manitoba in August, 2014. Please contact me for availability. I look forward to hearing from you! 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

5 year birthday

It’s insane to think that 5 years ago I was booking my very first portrait sessions under the name K Photo and Design.  This definitely calls for celebration!!  So I want to offer the first 5 customers who book themselves a 2014 portrait session a gift portrait.  (One portrait valued up to $150!!)  Can’t wait to hear from you!!

Spikey dark hair, chubby cheeks and a pudgy little bum – the perfect formula for an adorable new baby girl!  I had such a good time with her, and brother was lightning streak of energy.  He kept us on our toes!! (Well…until naptime.  Ha!)  I had a hard time picking some faves; but here’s a few I’d like to share!  Open-mouthed smile

I loved that this was Mom’s pillow from when she was a baby.  This little one seems to find it quite comfortable! Smile

I’m hoping to start booking some outdoor sessions soon (weather permitting, as it always is!)  But until then, I am currently taking indoor newborns and baby sessions.  If you would like to talk about booking a session of your very own, please contact me:

When you have two brand new little cuties…I feel as though I should be able to take at least ONE of them home with me. Haha! Although, I would never be able to choose which one!  These two little munchkins were set to arrive in the New Year…but they had other plans.  I think they were just too excited to get here for Christmas.  And while they were a little early; they were just perfect. Just check out those sweet little faces!!  (Oh…and toes!!)  Smile

Awwww….they’re just so cute!! Please keep up with news and promotions by following me on Facebook or Twitter.  I’d love to hear from you! Smile

So I had literally just completed documenting this baby girl’s first year when I got the news there was another cutie on the way!  This time – a boy! While these two share the same deep, dark brown eyes I love so much, they are VERY different.  She was always so petite, and well he – is not so much.  Haha! But I LOVE it!! He is one strong little dude with a killer smile.  And I look forward to hanging out with him this year. (And all those chubby chubs!!!)  Open-mouthed smile

First day of Spring? The perfect time to start thinking about outdoor portraits – I swear! Please contact me to talk about your very own portrait session. I look forward to hearing from you!  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
