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

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

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
