Professionally…not a lot went on this past year. We were nearly entering the Spring season when this pandemic hit hard. Ontario in a full lockdown. Photography was deemed not to be essential. Some planned sessions just didn’t end up happening. And time went on. The kids were schooling from home. We played a lot of games, baked and I learned to cut hair. We ordered music to watch on TV and even attended a drive-in concert. The highlight was renting a cabin in the Kawarthas. It was the perfect time to get away where we would not see anyone! I did manage to hold my annual Fall mini sessions. It was great to see my VIP’s again. Christmas was a little different. But we made it though to 2021!! Here is just a snippet of what my camera saw this past year.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy start to 2021! My camera misses you!

Hard to imagine it was 11 years ago that I made the choice to stay home, make my own hours, and do what I love. This anniversary is a bit of a weird one. But we will be out and about soon enough capturing your family memories. Until then…stay safe.

My camera misses your smiling faces.

These gals met at work 20-ish years ago. And they are still best friends today. Now with a pile of kiddos between them! After braving the all the bugs we did manage to get everyone into a couple of photos. They all definitely kept me on my toes. Haha! These gals had a lot to celebrate: some big birthdays, a new baby, moving to a new place. It’s so nice to be able to get everyone together to celebrate these big moments. And plus, aren’t these lovely ladies just gorgeous??

Now booking for August/September 2019. Lots of great summer spots available for families, kids and pets. info@k-photo.ca to reserve your spot.

Holy moly!! I had to check my calendar twice!! Could it really be TEN YEARS since K Photo and Design was born?!?! So many amazing families I have met, and stories I have heard. I have to admit…I do feel a little nostalgic when I look back at some of these photos from the past. From my first paying customer (well, his mom paid the bill…haha!) – to my most recent family that I have met up with every year for the last 4-5 years or so.

So in honor of this SPECIAL occasion….please, take the time to go through some of your old photos that maybe you didn’t get a chance to print at the time. And I will send them off to be professionally printed for a wicked discounted price!! (50% off any desk print up to 8×10, and 25% off any wall portrait sized 11×14-20×24.)

I am a firm believer in printing your memories. With all the advanced changes in technology…there is no telling when the media you choose to store your images will become obsolete. Or just plain fail you. #printwhatyouwanttopreserve

Images must be taken by K Photo and Design between 2009 and April 1st, 2019. If you can provide the image number, that would be great. If not, we’ll figure it out.

I guess you could say things have been a little crazy around the house the last little bit.  We decided it was time to have a little floof join our family.  So back the beginning of May we welcomed our little Ophelia.  She is such a beautiful, elegant 8 week old Chocolate point Siamese kitty – but don’t let that fool you.  She is a GOOF!! Not sure if I could pick a favourite thing about this baby girl.  I love when she takes over my pillow and sleeps on my head.  I love when you’re trying to scold her and then she gives you the head tilt “but I’m so cute” look.  She is just oh so helpful with everything from unloading the dishwasher, folding laundry, making the bed, putting away the groceries.  Haha!  But actually…one of my FAVOURITE things is when she falls asleep with her tongue hanging out. That’s how you know it’s a good nap. 

After she had designated herself as the Queen of the house, we thought what better time to add ANOTHER floof! Welcome Miss Ellie.  (Or if I wanted to type out her full name: Lady Eleanor Wigglefloof of the Squishybeans)  She was a little rescue kitty I fell in love with over Facebook, of all things.  She was left abandoned out by a farm along with a sister and 2 deceased brothers.  We brought her home when she was roughly 8 weeks old…and at this point it was clear – she needed to be taught how to do kitty things.  First of all – the litter box situation was not up to Ophelia’s standards.  She would stand there and monitor Miss Ellie.  And then go in and cover everything when she was done. Even drinking her water was not something our little Miss Ellie learned before coming to our home.  She would slurp.  It was the funniest thing to watch!  But it wasn’t long before she was doing all the kitty things.  

Now don’t get me wrong…it was a bit of a transition period trying to introduce the two of ’em.  Ophelia was a little TOO excited to play with a new little friend.  So she’d try to jump on top of her and eat her leg or ear a bit.  Haha!  And I think Miss Ellie was just happy to be out of a cage, and looking to roam.  We’d let them see each other for short spurts, and then separate them again.  Until one morning they chased each other and wrestled and more chasing and pouncing and even more chasing.  It was exhausting to watch! Actually, exhausting for them as well.  They both snuggled up to each other and had a HUGE nap. Then they were best buds.  After 2 months now if one of them meows – the other one runs to see what the problem is.  They eat together.  Drink together.  Nap together (if the mood arises).  And still have not grown out of using the bathroom together.  I may be a bit biased – but they are awfully darn cute!  

Awww….just look at my babies!!!  While this was a bit of a personal post today – I ALWAYS enjoy adding a pet to any family or children’s session.  Currently booking for summer/fall 2018.  Please follow along on Facebook or Twitter to keep up with any and all news K Photo and Design.  I look forward to hearing from you!  

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

I have had my share of dandelion bouquets…or leaves or rocks that seem to find their way home.  But my favourite flower is just a simple white daisy.  My daughter knows this, and points them out WHENEVER she sees them like she’s seen a rock star or something.  Even better when she finds a wild patch and brings one home for me (or two).  Open-mouthed smile

Happy summer everyone!!
