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

Manitoba…always great to make a trip back home.  Even better when you are left with FABULOUS weather (most days). And so happy to have an excuse to go and hang out in one of the local canola fields.  These guys were insanely fun!!  The boys made me laugh so much.  And I was introduced to a new photo pose – the “Beanie Boo eyes”.  Haha!  Those two!! Open-mouthed smile

At one point the boys were hugging mom, holding her hand, or hanging off of her in some way.  It was a HOT, and humid evening.  And I think mom was done with that whole idea.

So I suggested that they spread out a bit…..

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

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 absolutely LOVE photographing in my hometown of Brandon, Manitoba.  I mean, I loooooove the Ottawa area…but there is just something different about the prairies.  I love the endless fields and colours you can find.  (If you couldn’t tell!)

So this is my best friend’s sister and her little family.  She called me up a few days before our vacation was ending and asked if I would have time to take some family photos of them.  I’m happy the weather cooperated – because we didn’t have much of a back up plan!  We were taunted by a huge bird (hawk?) the entire time we were out there.  (Angry Bird, perhaps?)  But we survived and managed to capture some real cute photos.  Absolutely LOVE those big blues!!  Open-mouthed smile
