I was so excited to meet up with this family again.  It had been a while since we’ve gotten together.  QUITE a while.  (Their little girl was just a wee newborn back then; as you can see here.)

She’s much bigger now, and LOADS of energy!  I have no idea how her parents keep up to her.  She is sooo cute, and so much fun!  This little family of three will be a family of four in the new year; as a baby boy is on the way!  I can’t wait to meet him!!  Smile

Christmas is such a fun time of year, but it can be nerve racking if you cannot figure out what to give someone on your list! This is the PERFECT idea for that person that HAS everything. There’s nothing more unique or personal than offering them a portrait session. PLUS, a little something for yourself. Because seriously – don’t you deserve it?? Winking smile

I had SO much fun with this little guy!  He constantly had his hands doing something.  At one point it looked like he was talking on the phone, then he relaxed them beside his face and he looked so peaceful.  I even managed to catch him playing a little air guitar!  This kid was crazy!  But very content, and he let me play with him until he was tired…and then he let us know he was done.  Smile

I was very happy to have the chance to meet up with this family a few weekends ago.  (Even though the weather was NOT looking that great…I was glad that the clouds parted and gave us some sun to work with.)  These guys were so much fun, and up for anything!  Even when I handed the girls some moustaches!  Dad is participating in ‘Movember’ to raise money for Cancer research, and we didn’t want to leave the girls out for the photos.  Winking smile

The girls are VERY excited for their baby brother to arrive.  Could be the BEST Christmas gift EVER!  Smile

I love to get families out to the local parks when the leaves start to change.  It’s such a fun time of year to get into those nice cozy sweaters and cuddle up for a nice family portrait.  Not to mention EXCELLENT Christmas gift ideas!  (I’m talking about Mom’s, Dad’s Gramma’s and Grampa’s – the people who have absolutely everything and just want to stare and your nice sunny faces all day. Winking smile)

I had a blast with these guys.  I’m soooo happy we found some nice fall colours and some great weather to capture this little family of three.  I even had D posing his Mom and Dad at one point.  I’m sure I have molded a great little assistant for future shoots if needed.  Smile

I’m hoping we still have a few weeks we can enjoy some nice outdoor fall portraits.  Please contact me to book yourself a spot!!

With so much rain this fall, I was wondering if I would EVER have a chance to photograph this family.  Luckily we had a great window of opportunity, and we couldn’t have asked for a better day!  This little guy was so cute!  Just check out those big, bright eyes!

Fall is a GREAT time to get your family out to update those old photos on your wall.  There’s still time before the new flies!  If you would like to talk about your own family session, please contact me soon!!

– Kim

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!

The 7×7 coffee table book:

Or option to upgrade to the 8×10 size:

These books are also GREAT gift ideas!  For full pricing, please check out my website or feel free to contact me.  info@k-photo.ca

The name of a familiar dancing penguin, the name my son wanted to give our baby girl (don’t worry…we didn’t listen to a 4 year old!), and also the nick name I’ll give this little guy.  He was so happy, and just LOVED those toes!!  4 month olds are not an age that I commonly have the chance to photograph.  But I just love ‘em!!  Babies are so full of expressions at this age, and this little guy did not disappoint.  Just look at those smiles!!  They grow so quickly, it makes me happy to capture these moments of discovery.  Smile

You may ask: “When is the best time to schedule a photo session for your baby?”  The answer may surprise you: ANYTIME!  Most parents feel the need to wait for that perfect moment, but in all reality there’s no reason to wait.  If your baby has just hit a milestone and you’d like to capture it with a photo session – just do it!  It doesn’t matter if they are 2, 3, 7, or 10 months old.)  Winking smile  I’m happy to hear from you!!

I am one that is always interested in a baby’s name.  I think it says so much about the parents and their OWN personalities.  I just have to say that I LOVE the name chosen for this baby girl!  Meet sweet little Pippa.  Born into a house full of boys, she is going to have some interesting days ahead of her.  Her big brothers are totally in love, and mom is just happy to have some pink in her house for a change!  Here she is!!

While mom was not sure about having maternity photos done, she decided to go for it – as they figure their baby girl will have completed their family now.  And I totally agree that it is such a special time, that it’s a must to have a little keepsake.  If you’d like to take a peek at their maternity session, you can see it here.

And as important I believe it is to catch those belly photos, I also think it is so important to capture those first baby moments as those babies just grow up too fast!!  Newborns typically photograph best before they are 10 days old.  So if you would like to reserve a spot, please contact me while you are still pregnant.  Smile

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend!  Ours was quite busy, as we popped down the the Niagara Falls area to be at/in my brother’s wedding.  Here are their engagement photos if you’d like to see.  But seriously, you couldn’t have PLANNED a better day!  (Although these two had actually been planning for the last year…heehee, but you just never know how things will go.)

Everyone was dressed up, my kiddos (ring bearer and flower girl) were adorable, the ceremony was beautiful, we had a fun time with the photos, food was good, and we partied until the wee hours of the morning.  The only thing that wasn’t good was my hair the next day!  (And no you won’t be seeing any pics of that!!)

You’d think these two just got married or something!

My kiddies in their fancies.  They LOVED the ride in the limo.  Although they both called it a ‘limbo’ ALL day!  Winking smile

bouquet

The flowers were beau-ti-ful!  I loved the fall colours, and the berries were a nice touch.  (Although I had to keep the kids from trying to eat them!!)

wedding cake

My brother – very much into cars…seemed perfectly fitting for them to have a yellow convertible (just like theirs) upon their cake.  Most importantly, it tasted damn good!!  Open-mouthed smile

first dance

A wedding would not be complete without a first dance.  Red heart

Okay, yes I know there are no photos of ME.  But trust me, I looked very nice too.  Winking smile  I want to wish my brother and his wife many happy years together, and have an awesome time on your honeymoon!!
