A bit of bad weather was not going to stop this little guy from his day of baptism.  This is my SECOND time meeting up with this family. Just last year big sis had her day.  Now she is being very helpful in getting her brother ready to go.  And what a big help she was!  Shoes stayed on!!  A few quick photos and off to the church to meet up with family and friends for the ceremony.  I loved seeing all the familiar faces – and some new ones as well!  And this cutie…SO good throughout the whole thing.  He just wanted to touch EVERYTHING!!  All I have to say is thank goodness for fake candles!  Smile

So I looked it up…apparently the traditional 5th anniversary gift is wood. How appropriate to have your photos taken in the woods!!  We took a trip down to the lovely Mackenzie King Estate in Gatineau.  Although it was busy, (definitely a hot spot for weddings) – we found some amazing little spots to capture some fun photos to mark the occasion.  Seriously couldn’t have asked for a better day!  And at one point we managed to become one of the tourist attractions.  Everyone wanted to stop by to read their anniversary sign. Some came with marital advice. Haha! Winking smile

Looking through these bunch of photos, hard to believe I was photographing their engagement five whole years ago!!  And then the big day of course.  Time flies when you’re having fun!!

Still a few more weeks to get in those fall colours.   Please contact me for more info.  info@k-photo.ca

This bunch was in the midst of selling their family home…and BEAU-TI-FUL yard.  (Seriously….AMAZING!!!)  But before they could let it go, they asked me to capture some family photos at their favourite place.  Home.  The girls got really into it when I let them have free run of the place and told them to find their favourite spots to photograph.  The swing, the big rock, the favourite tree, the flower bed and trampoline were the highlights.  So happy to be asked to capture these special moments.  Wishing you all the best in your new home!! Smile

There’s nothing better than hanging out with a new baby.  This little guy was no exception.  Although, he was NOT all that interested in sleeping.  He was WAY too interested in what was happening around him.  And who could could blame him? I think all images with his eyes closed were caught during a blink.  Haha!  That is my secret.   Smile

Last month we said goodbye to our dear old kitty.  I must admit, the house seems a little empty without her.  I could always count on her to lay in front of the kitchen cupboards when I was trying to put the dishes away.  She would not get up for anything!! (Well…except treats).  I would slide her across the floor with my foot….and then slide her back to her preferred spot when I was finished.  She was also the only cat I ever knew to purr when we were petting our other cat.  Haha!  She was special…that’s for sure!  Anyways…I have a few photos to share.

I love being asked to join in on a family celebration.  Especially when it’s a 90th BIRTHDAY!  And this crew did not disappoint. The birthday gal was treated to a fancy limo ride to the venue. When the word got out that she was on her way, the family made their way outside to greet her.  Honestly, you could NOT get any cuter than this lovely lady.  She was a tad embarrassed over all the attention, haha!  But managed to make her way through the sea of hugs and kisses on her way in the door.  We quickly stole her away to capture some family photos.  In between takes she was given a glass of wine to celebrate – which she quickly says to me “I never drink wine.”  Haha!  It was not long and we all went inside for some drinks and snacks before the big dinner.  The decor was beautiful!  And that cake…I hope it tasted as good as it looked!  There was a slideshow playing, and handmade place cards set on the table.  Even a letter from the Prime Minister wishing the birthday girl a happy 90th!  What a beautiful day to celebrate this gal’s 90th birthday!! Smile

One of my favourite events in Ottawa is the Tulip Festival.  Most years it is difficult to time it out to be able to see the best display of tulips.  But this year was not so bad. I just LOVE the sea of colours!  And of course, I have some to share with you. Smile

It was a day that you could definitely see your breath in the air.  But as your kids grow up and spread out a bit…it is always hard to have them all in the same place at the same time.  So we bundled up well and pushed forward to capture some great family moments.  The temperature was slightly different from the last time we all met up.  This would be the first photo session including the dog.  Although, you wouldn’t know…he acted like a real pro!  I’ve collected a few of my favourites to share.  And although it was quite chilly…I’m so glad this family braved the elements for me.  Freezing

I hope this is the end of the snow for this year.  But if you are interested in a wintery photo session, please contact me to get on the list for next season.  info@k-photo.ca  And otherwise, I am booking currently booking for Spring/Summer 2016.  Can’t wait to hear from you!

Super excited to meet up with these guys again.  ALWAYS a fun time.  Even if it was a tad on the cold side – the snow made for a WONDERFUL backdrop.  Which is really cool (no pun intended), because mom has decided she would like a series of photos for her wall of her and her son.  One for every season.  This Winter collection will be added to the previous Summer and Fall we had taken a few years ago.  Can’t wait to see them again in the Spring! Haha!
