Posts Tagged ‘Kanata children’s photography’

Every year I attempt to take the kids out for some fall photos so we can send them off in our Christmas cards, for gifts and all that fun stuff.  And every year it gets a little more difficult. Unfortunately they usually get left to the last minute when it’s cold, and there are no coloured leaves.  But that’s the way it is.  I was happy with this years bunch though.  But for anyone that thinks that photographers must have a ridiculous amount of awesome photos of their kids….think again.  These outtakes speak for themselves. Smile with tongue out

And yes, I asked her to push her glasses up – that’s what I got.

Still taking advantage of the last little bit of Fall.  Please contact me to book your session: info@k-photo.ca.  And of course, keep up with what’s going on by following K Photo and Design on Facebook or Twitter!

A bit of a personal post today.  But this fall my gal made the decision that she wanted to chop off her hair and donate it to make wigs for cancer patients. I think she was a bit tired of me combing through the knots…haha!  But still, a pretty good deed I thought.  When she came to me with this idea; I told her to sleep on it.  She’d been growing that mop for a while now; and it would definitely take a while for it to grow back.  I needed to make sure she had thought this all through.  But every day she came to me “Mom, did you make the appointment yet?”  (I think it was ME that was having more of a problem with this plan than she was.  She had her mind made up!)  So I made the appointment.  We went to The Hair Bar in Kanata.  They were AMAZING!  My daughter said she felt like a movie star.  Haha!  (She could definitely get used to being pampered.)  So off it went – all 13 inches of it!  And somehow she came out looking about 5 years older!!  I did NOT sign up for that!  Haha!   She did love her new haircut.  And today, loves it the same.  Her ponytail was sent off to Pantene Beautiful Lengths.  Super easy to do.  (We just received a letter of thanks yesterday.)  The Canadian Cancer Society will then in turn give these real hair wigs out to women going through cancer treatments that would otherwise not be able to afford something like that.

My gal was very proud to have made a contribution.  But has been on the lookout to see if she can see anyone that might be wearing her hair. Winking smile

It’s been a few years since I’ve seen these cuties.  But my oh my…how they have changed from their newbie and even their one year sessions!! They were so cute and chatty.  I love hearing kids little stories.  They have such a neat perspective on the world.  And they always keep me laughing!!   Smile

I was packing up some of the kids old books just last week and came across one of their little board books about a monkey, called HUG.  Well, I guess it was fresh in my mind when I saw this image.  I just adore these little munchkins!! And since I’ve made these fall mini sessions an annual thing…Mom and Dad find an excuse for me to see them at LEAST once a year.  They’ve changed so much from just last yearSmile

You’d think as a photographer that you would have a million and one photos of your own kids.  Well, that’s somewhat true.  But to actually get those nice classic “portraits”, takes a little effort.  I attempt to take the kiddies out at least once a year, although it is getting more and more difficult.  I found this beautiful patch of purple flowers and just KNEW I had to take my gal there.  Funny enough, my son – who HATES having his photo taken…was a tad jealous of this situation.  So I made sure to find an EQUALLY cool place to take him for his own portraits.  And well…I’m VERY excited to share the results – because it just love ‘em to death! Happy summer everyone!! Open-mouthed smile

I took my gal out to capture her 4 year old portrait a few weeks ago.  She insisted she needed to wear that sparkly skirt (it’s her fave!).  And we thought we’d try to find some pink trees.  We didn’t have very much luck; but did manage to find a couple.  I was going to keep the photos to myself, but I was so proud how they turned out.  It’s true that photographing your own kids is terribly hard work.  (That’s why most people hire other people to do it!)  She’s at that stage where she refuses to look at the camera, and is most often just a blur.  This is totally her and her spunky little self, and I love it!  Smile
