Just finished adding my newest edition to my family photo wall.  A photo taken this summer at my Gramma’s 90th birthday party.  It was a spur of the moment type thing, as we were mostly all together.  (Minus my hubby, who didn’t manage to make the trip down with us this year.)  But yet we were able to choose clothing that kinda, sorta matched (or at least didn’t clash!)…and did this all by non-communication!!  It was a pure miracle!  Haha!  But as a photographer…I look at this photo and think – well, this could have been done better.  And yes…it definitely could have.  But sometimes you just have to step back and appreciated the fact that I captured a moment in time of our mostly coordinated togetherness.

And yes, it would have been SO EASY to just “photoshop” my husband into the mix.  But should it be done?  Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.  In my opinion, anyways.  We had joked about adding him in a Superman costume flying above us.  Haha!  But in my eyes; when you capture a moment in time…it should be just that.  Winking smile

As always, I am a HUGE advocate for displaying your family photos on your wall.  I am currently booking sessions into the Spring.  So let’s get something up on your wall!  info@k-photo.ca

I just love this boy and his crazy mop of hair!!  He has grown so much since our last visit.  Still as busy.  I won’t deny, I had quite the work out.  Haha!  But his personality is so funny!!  His Mom is pretty cute too!  Here are a few of my faves.  Smile

I have been photographing this little munchkin since she was a wee few days old.  And to see her grow into her little spunky personality has been so much fun!  I was so happy to be called upon to catch some lovely fall family photos of this clan.  Aren’t they just the absolute cutest?? Open-mouthed smile

I had sore stomach muscles after this session.  This family was a riot!!  I was dying over lil’ sis’s “poses” she was offering me.  Haha!  At one point she told her mother not to look “crazy” and then proceeded to demonstrate how she should pose.  It was the most unnatural, contorted pose I had ever seen!!  I was dying!!  And of course the rest of the gang kept me going with their jokes and stories.  As long as no one ended up in the water – I knew things were going well.  Haha! Smile

I know as Christmas approaches I can expect to receive my call to come and hang out with one of my fave families.  These kids crack me up!!  This time around while being entertained by the many stories J had for me…lil’ sis grabbed her own camera and started capturing some great moments, staring ME!  When she showed me the photos, I was surprised to see that with her little camera program she was able to dress me up in a tutu!  I looked GREAT!  Haha!  Anyways…here are some adorable shots – and glad we were able to convince the dog to hang out for a moment too!  Smile

It’s so hard to believe that 2014 has come and gone already!  I just wanted to take the time to thank all of the wonderful families I was able to spend time with this year.  I appreciate your business…and the fun chats we always seem to have.  I’ve chosen of few of my favourite images from this past year to share with you; and I hope we are able to get together at some point in 2015!  Smile

T’is the eve of Christmas eve.  The house is clean…for the moment.  Gifts are wrapped.  Guests are on their way.  And my goal is to not have to enter any sort of shopping establishment for the next few days.  That is my hope anyways!!

One of my favourite things to do in getting ready for the holidays, is a little Christmas crafting.  And the kids just like getting dirty…so it’s a win win!  Haha!

Christmas crafting

It is no secret that I have a small obsession with Bath and Bodyworks.  I seriously get lost in that store just smelling all the new scents.  And the holidays is the WORST for me in trying to pick out what I want my house to smell like.  I went in with ONE item on my list; an air freshener.  I knew which one I wanted and everything.  And then…..I spotted something new.   A light up one!!  And it’s oh so cute!!  Plus, smells pretty nice too. Smile

Christmas scent

December is the time for those holiday tunes!  I love listening to the old classics…as well as discovering new ones.  This particular song by Echosmith is my absolute FAVOURITE song this season.  If you have not heard it…please do.  It’s awesome! Winking smile

Christmas music

And of course, it would not be Christmas, without our annual Gingerbread house.  This year was especially difficult for me…as I like to sort of “guide” the kids into how it should be done.  Haha!  But I let them go to it all on their own this year.  My favourite was the “icicle of death” that had to go over the front door.  Mimicking one we had above our own door for a few days this winter.

Gingerbread house

Holiday movies!!  Can’t forget those!!  Although, there are so many good ones, it’s hard to fit them all in!  But one we NEVER miss out on is Merry Christmas Mr. Bean.  It’s still funny EVERY time I watch it.  Every. Single. Time. Smile

MrBean

And….the Christmas baking.  Which I am not very good at, I admit.  But this year I decided to give the kids the job putting together the cookies and dainties for our various get-togethers.  And it seemed to work.  Everything worked on the first try!  That has NEVER happened.  And the smoke alarm was not set off either!!  Haha!  Smile

Christmas treats

Well…it has been such a wonderful year.  Hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and I hope to see you in 2015! Smile

This family is WAY too adorable!  I’ve been lucky enough to photograph both these kiddies from when they were only a few days old.  (Big sis and lil’ bro)  And it’s always a good time when we get together.  The knitted sweaters were the absolute BEST!!  I just love ‘em!! Open-mouthed smile

The gift of a family portrait is something that is unique, and can be loved by all.  Still time to get in an order for a gift certificate this holiday season.  They can be made up in any denomination you choose.  Contact me for more info: info@k-photo.ca

– Kim

I just love these girls! (Well, mom and dad are okay too!  Haha!)  Been a while since I’ve seen this bunch.  Look at how much these gals have grown since our last meeting.  Big sis could be a model, I swear.  She was such a little pro…and LOVED to have her photo taken!  Little sis was a bit shy…but had no problem playing around in the leaves.  Just adorable!  Smile

I have seen these “babies” grow since they were only 5 days old.  So much fun to see them again and again; they definitely keep me on my toes.  SO full of energy!!  I have no idea how mom keeps up with them!  But the giggles….man the GIGGLES!!!  One would start and then the other one would get going.  It was infectious!! Open-mouthed smile
