Happy New Year everyone!  I’m not doing too bad, posting a New Year’s special on the 4th of January.  😉

So this is brand new for this year.   It’s a small calendar with 12 months and one image.  Great to use it at home, the office or even a gift for the grandparents!  Each calendar is 5×7 in size, mounted for durability and only $20!  However, for my lucky January and February clients, you will receive one on me.  My little welcome to 2011!  🙂

What a great year it has been for K Photo and Design!  So many wonderful clients have kept me busy and entertained over the last 12 months.  I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your business and wish you all the best in 2011!!

Also, if are not currently following me on facebook, please do!  (I often post my current specials there.)  Invite your friends too!!

Christmas is quickly approaching.  And while I really don’t feel like I’m quite ready yet.  I just wanted to take the time to wish everyone a great Christmas, while sharing a few of my favourite holiday things. 

Number one on the list: Christmas lights.  I LOVE to fill the house up with tones of coloured little lights.  If I could completely light the entire house with Christmas lights, I would.  

Number two: Decorations.  Our tree is divided into sections.  My absolute FAVOURITE ornaments go front and center, right at the top.  Followed by the breakable ones we want to keep away from the kids and cats.  Then the bottom section is filled with wooden, material or plastic ornaments.  And a section that has come about over the last few years: the Santa section.  For some reason they feel ALL Santas must sit on the same branch.  But these two are my absolute favourite.  Totally home-made first Christmas ornaments for both my kiddies. 

Number three: The Santa pants candy bowl.  And every year it is filled with Christmas M&M’s.  But seriously…it’s just the cutest bowl ever.

Number four: Fun Christmas activities.  We usually end up doing some sort of baking.  But this year we thought we’d try a Gingerbread house.  I have NO idea how these things are supposed to stay together.  And it didn’t quite turn out like the photo on the box.  But I love it!

Okay, and there’s opening presents and eating turkey and all that fun stuff too.  🙂 

Wishing you all a safe and happy holiday season!!

This little guy just could not WAIT until Christmas. So much so, that he decided to arrive 4 weeks early! Mom was not quite prepared for this, but with kids, you just have to go with the flow. He was the absolute sweetest little thing though. And was definitely the smallest baby I’ve ever photographed; at measly 5lbs 13oz. Well I won’t go on any longer, I’m sure you want to SEE this little cutie. Introducing baby Cohen.
I also wanted to thank one of my WONDERFUL clients who was so kind to knit me a couple of little Christmas-themed hats.  (Including the one you see here.)  It’s not too late to take advantage of my newborn holiday special and try out these super cute little hats!  🙂

Time is running out for venturing out into those busy stores and malls.  You COULD always stick to online shopping, but will your items arrive in time?  Why stress out over these silly details when you KNOW a gift certificate for a portrait session will be the most unique gift your friends or family will receive this year. 

Merry Christmas!!

I met up with fellow photographer Jen Howard of Jen Howard Photography this past weekend for some fun (but chilly) family photos.  Original plan was for both of our families to meet up and take turns capturing some much needed family memories.  Well, we had to go to plan B.  Unfortunately MY fam was malfunctioning at that time and some key members refused to wear pants.  So I brought along my awesome little assistant and away we went.  Her family was ready to go when we got there, so we grabbed a few quick snaps before we all froze to death.  And so I’m left with an IOU.  (Which I will collect SOMETIME, Jen.)  😉

But here’s Jen’s family.  She did well on coordinating their outfits too.  But seriously, aren’t her boys cute??

It’s always a fun time when I get to hang out with my friends and my camera.  Guessing that  it would probably be the last warm weekend we’ll have THIS year,  I figured we must take advantage of it.  And well, here are a few of my favourites of the day.  🙂

I was very excited to meet up with my favourite little twins again.  (Their mom’s too of course!)  I can’t believe how much they’ve grown!!!  It’s incredible how much difference a few short months can make.  And in case you don’t believe me, take a look at their little newborn session back in July. 

I really don’t know how these gals do it.  One’s hungry, the other one is sleepy.  One spits up everywhere and the other poops their pants.  I’m sure it’s an everyday occurrence in their world, but a little crazy for me.  None the less…I had a GREAT time.  They are just too sweet for words!  (And check out the awesome baby fashion!!  JUST LOVE IT!)

Don’t let this sweet little face fool you…he is  t-r-o-u-b-l-e!  He will definitely be keeping Mom and Dad on their toes.  I had a lot of fun, because this was my second time hanging out with these guys…check out their super cute maternity photos!

This little guy was hilarious!  After eating, pooping, cleaning, eating again, POOPING again, more cleaning, more snuggling he FINALLY fell into a nice slumber.  Well, wouldn’t you be tired after all of that??  He has such an angelic little face, that strawberry hair and those pouty lips…waaaay too cute!  But don’t take my word for it…see for yourself!  🙂
