Every year for the last few years I’ve set up a day of Fall mini sessions.  It is super fun to meet new families and catch up with some old ones I haven’t seen in a bit.  I have been lucky enough to photograph this family from when their daughter was only a few days old.  So I always look forward to meeting up with them every Fall.  (See last year here.) The kids are so funny.  I just adore their funny stories!!  Haha!  And after ALL this practice of me photographing them.  Big sis decided to help her brother SMILE for me.  Haha!  I swear I should hire her!  Smile

I am very much a name girl.  I am always interested in what makes a person choose to name a baby a certain name.  Is it a family name?  Something you heard on a TV show you liked?  Did the older sibling pick it?  Yes, that does happen!  But either way…it is terribly difficult to commit to something that is basically going to last a lifetime.  And you want to make sure YOU like it.  Well there was some debate going on about this little guy’s name.  Both names that were chosen were so cute; and would suit him either way…in my opinion anyways.  A good compromise?  Use both!  Although mom and dad were still in debates as to which name they would call him by.  I personally think we should just call him cutie!  Haha!  That would suit him just fine.  Just look at that sweet little face!!  And big sister was such a helper.  Totally in love with her little brother.  Smile

I absolutely ADORE spending time with new baby faces!!  If you’re thinking of booking a newborn session, it’s best to do it while you are still pregnant.  I look forward to chatting with you!  Smile

So honoured to be asked to join in on such a special event as a baptism.  This time was doubly special – as there were TWO baby girls!  They looked so sweet all dressed up for their special day.  And were SUCH good girls through the whole ceremony.  Just look at those little faces!! Smile

What a great day! One of those fall days it decided to tease us with warm weather.  Holiday deadlines are fast approaching, but still time to squeeze in some fall photos before then.  Please contact me ASAP to book your portrait session.  info@k-photo.ca

The best part about a family booking a milestones portrait package?  I get to see them ALL the time!! Although, a little bittersweet this time around.  As this was the last in this series.  Both of these munchkins have grown up before my eyes.  Funny to see their little personalities emerging over time.  4 months old…and at 6 months too!  Anyways….these are a few of my favourites of this little guy at 1.  (His big sis too!)  Smile

Every year I manage to make it back to my hometown of Brandon, Manitoba for a few weeks.  I get to catch up with family and old friends…and maybe squeeze in a portrait session here and there.  I was so excited when a couple of my high school friends announced they would be back in Brandon at the same time and wanted me to photograph their family.

We ended up with a beautiful day!  Well…the grass was a bit crunchy.  Funny to think the city of Brandon floods every year – but by mid summer, no rain at all.  Go figure.  Anyways…aside from the crunchy grass (and the bugs, of course) – beautiful day!  And the kids were so much fun.  Such quirky personalities.  I just loved it!! Open-mouthed smile

I couldn’t believe these baby girls held a combined weight of 8 pounds and a bit.  They were teeny, but OH so cute!! What was funny is that Mom and Dad knew that one of them would be a bit of a trouble-maker.  What they didn’t know, was that it was going to be the one who is usually so easy going.  Through them for a bit of a loop!  I think she was just too interested in what was going on.  We had a lot of “pirate eyes” going on.  Haha!

I have so many favourites, but managed to narrow it down a bit for you all to see.  They were just so darn sweet!  I could have taken one home in my purse.  I’m sure no one would have noticed, right? Winking smile

Newborns are best photographed when they are brand new.  Therefore it is best to book your session while you are still pregnant.  If you have any questions, or would like to talk about setting up your own newborn portrait session, please contact me.  Thanks!! Smile

Is there a better excuse to get the WHOLE FAMILY together than a 90th birthday?  I think not!  This family was so much fun!  We managed to wait out the threat of rain.  Okay, there was a small sprinkle.  But all was clear when we were ready to get down to business.  I love working with teachers, they are always so incredible organized.  As we made our way down the list of groupings, people started to disperse to the house.  It was just behind the park.  When we saw the Aunts and Uncles getting into the wine from the patio window, we knew we had to get this party started.  Haha! As there were SO many photos…I just went through and picked a few of my faves to share.  They are a great smiley bunch! Open-mouthed smile

As a gal from the prairies…I just love to bring the kiddies out to the fields and seas of various colours. I found this rustic fence and knew I had found a great backdrop.  However there was a very aggressive grasshopper that was hanging around…so needless to say – this was a very quick shoot!  Haha!  Rolling on the floor laughing

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
