What a fun family I had the opportunity to photograph late last year.  Baby was a bit fussy, which gave me the opportunity to catch LOTS of baby snuggles.  Even though he was almost 2 months old, he hadn’t lost that new baby smell yet.  And that fuzzy little head?  I couldn’t help but rub it!! (Just a little…Haha!)  Big brother and sister were definitely the helpers we needed.  They were pros at calming and keeping baby entertained.  With both older kids into the hockey scene…it was a must to capture them in their gear.  Which proved to be a challenge to pull that stuff out for two active kids AND keep them quiet so they didn’t wake the baby who had finally dozed off.  But we managed to do it!! Just look at some of the awesome images that came from that day. 

While we enjoy a little bit more Winter – keep in mind, it is still a great time to book your family portraits.  Outdoors in the snow is such an awesome backdrop for families and kids.  Or if that’s not your thing – a cozy lifestyle session at home might be more for you.  Either way – please contact me for more info as to how to book your own Winter portrait session.  info@k-photo.ca  As always, you can keep up with what’s happening by following K Photo and Design on Facebook or Twitter.  I look forward to hearing from you!

It’s been so drab the last few weeks – I thought a little colour would be nice.  And what a MASSIVE amount of colour we managed to find this past fall.  Trees were at the point of losing their colour…but this one AMAZING yellow tree hung on just for us.  The girls just loved hiding behind the big leaves.  After a heavy rainfall – the ground was so wet, it definitely kept mom and dad busy trying to keep the kids clean!!  I didn’t do so well myself.  I think I had mud and water up to my knees!  Haha!  But worth it in the end.  I just loved their little ladybug coats.  Can you get any cuter than that? 🙂

Annual mini sessions are a GREAT way to keep your family photos current.  If you would like to be put on the mailing list for the fall of 2017, please let me know!  info@k-photo.ca  I’d love to hear from you!  🙂

One of the things I look forward to every Fall is having the chance to meet up with this family.  Aside from baby photos, I think this is the 5th year we’ve been doing this.  (Just last year!)  The kids ALWAYS keep me on my toes…and the chatter is hilarious!  As you can imagine, working with 3 different, very busy children can be a challenge.  But I am just so happy with this family photo – makes it ALL worth it.  Aren’t they adorable?!?! Open-mouthed smile

I can’t believe we’re already into 2017!! Where has the time gone?  Now booking newborn and baby sessions for the Spring.  Please contact me at info@k-photo.ca to chat about your very own session.  Can’t wait to hear from you! Smile

Summer.  Seems like it was so long ago.  Anyways…I was very happy to be asked to catch some family photos of these guys when I was back home in Brandon, MB this past year.  I have held off in posting anything, as I knew there were some Christmas gifts in there.  It was a beautiful day – AND everyone managed to find the time to get together.  Which is not always easy with everyone’s activities, work and all that fun stuff.

It is insane how grown up these kids are getting.  I think I have photographed most of them since they were wee babies.  Even the changes from our LAST family photos: (C fam & R fam).  Seriously!  Stop growing!!  Haha!  I loved getting Grandma and Grandpa involved too.  Funny to think that I was having sleepovers in their basement 30 years ago!  They have not changed at all!  (I have, maybe.)  Winking smile  Haha!

Anyways, I had a TERRIBLE time trying to narrow down my favourites…so this is what I have to show you.  Smile

Hard to believe that 2017 is right around the corner.  So I just wanted to look at some of the amazing people I have met, and also reunited with over this past year.  I was lucky enough to be invited to capture a baptism and also a 90th birthday party.  My fall mini sessions are always a fave.  I love catching up with families I haven’t seen in a while.  And the kids ALWAYS have amazing stories for me.  Haha!  Smile  So here are a few of my most loved photos from 2016…if you see yourself – let me know! Winking smile

It appears to be that time of year again.  So I guess I will share a few of my Christmas things that make me happy. Smile

I never know what I’ll find dangling from my tree branch!

xmas music

I am absolutely loving this Christmas song by Maroon 5 this year!

xmas bathroom

Always a big joke in our family.  But I even love decorating my bathroom decor!!

Gift of Lights

So excited that the Gift of Lights display has hit Ottawa this year.  It was awesome!!

Office Christmas Party

Nothing better than seeing a good movie I think.

Fresh snow

Fresh snow is always welcomed around this time of year.

xmas baking

I always tend to leave the baking until the last minute.  And this year I decided to try something new.  Not sure how it tastes…but it looks pretty cute!  Haha!

Wishing you all a happy holiday!!

Apparently a lot can happen in 5 years.  I did not realize it had been THAT long since I last met up with this family.  But so happy we did!!  I mean, how adorable are these gals??  And we managed to capture these nice smiles in the midst of a “fairy attack”.  Haha!  Perhaps it was the crew I had just before them that had woken up all the little bugs, maybe the sun, or the fact that the temperature had warmed up by then…but it was CRAZY!!  They were all little troopers though.  Mom kept telling them they were little fairies.  And it seemed to work!  Because we ended up with these amazingly cute photos!! Smile

I know I’m in for a fun time when I book a family session with this family.  A lot has changed since last year.  Or even the year before!  Little girl comes right up to me and introduces herself (as though we’ve never met).  But not to be outdone by her brother, he ALSO had to introduce himself.  So she starts showing me her pretty bracelet she’s wearing.  Boy jumps right in and shows off that HE is wearing a sweater!  Haha!  What little kooks!!  By the end of the session things got a bit goofy.  I know, shocking!  We were trying to keep the kids happy and interested by giving them these beautiful red leaves to hold onto for the photo.  They were both shaking their leaves as happy as can be.  But little boy kept shaking the leaf right in front of his face.  Which was not the BEST idea from a photographer’s perspective.  So I asked him if he could shake his leaf down by his side – and proceeded to demonstrate for him.  So he agrees he will do that and walks right over to me and begins to shake his leaf right beside me – which TECHNICALLY is exactly what I told him to do!!  Haha!  What a kid!!  I honestly have never dealt with a small child who follows direction as well as he did.  Literally.  Smile

So fun to see a family year after year…and in this case, every second year. Haha!  A lot has changed since 2014!  (And definitely since 2012!!)  This little guy, still full of energy – but the stories he can tell.  What a funny guy!!  We picked the perfect day for photos though.  After a cold spell, it was nice that it had warmed up a bit.  We walked around for a few different locations at the Arboretum.  But when I told this little guy we were going to go on an adventure through the forest – you should have seen his eyes sparkle!  He started in on this story about his favourite show, Ranger Rob.  We hiked up this little trail, and he was as happy as anything guiding us along.  Such a fun bunch!! Winking smile

It’s incredible how big these kids are getting!! They have changed so much in only a year.  You can start to see their little goofy personalities more and more.  I laughed so hard when they were fighting over what they wanted to sit on.  Of course, they chose the SAME seat.  So the little girl distracts her brother with something, and then takes her spot on the box that she wanted all along.  Haha!  She knows how this sibling thing works.
