One thing I miss terribly about moving out East, is the amazing coloured fields of the prairies. You have canola.  Which is my absolute favourite – because it’s yellow. But I also love the flax fields.  The blue looks just like water as you drive by.  Especially if there is a breeze running though the flowers.  I’m also a big fan of the sunflower fields.  But it’s hard to time our visit when EVERYTHING is in bloom.  Because that would just not happen.  Another thing that has been increasingly difficult is convincing the kids to go on these adventures with me to take photos.  And even worse, my son decided to wear the same shirt for ALL PHOTOS I took while we were on vacation.  So…of course, here is the pizza shirt again. #PizzaShirt 

As we finished up playing around in the canola, I warned the kids that I saw a beautiful flax field I wanted to stop at. They groaned and begun complaining. But I had to find a side road to be able to get off the main highway.  When that looked like it wasn’t going to happen – they cheered! Until…I DID find a side road.  As we drove closer to the field we realized it had an electric fence around and a very large sign that said “no trespassing”.  The kids cheered again.  So as a compromise, I did NOT trespass…but stood on the outside of the fence and took my photo. I’m glad I did. How pretty is all that blue?

I take a limited amount of family/children sessions in the summer while back in the Brandon, MB area.  If you would like to be put on my 2018 list, let me know! info@k-photo.ca

As a gal from the prairies…I just love to bring the kiddies out to the fields and seas of various colours. I found this rustic fence and knew I had found a great backdrop.  However there was a very aggressive grasshopper that was hanging around…so needless to say – this was a very quick shoot!  Haha!  Rolling on the floor laughing

I schedule portrait sessions in Brandon, Manitoba every summer.  So if you’d like to get on my list for 2015, please let me know!  Currently booking fall/winter in Ottawa, Ontario.  I’d love to hear from you!! Smile
